Helen Mirren plays a god-like being in the next Shazam! movie, but while filming, she was just a regular person.
Rachel Zegler, who plays one of three magical sisters in the Shazam sequel with Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, recently said in an interview that she broke a finger while filming. When ET’s Ash Crossan sat down with the cast and crew to talk about the movie, Mirren told them why she hid the injuries.
Oscar winner: “The people who do stunts on that set are so brave, and you want them to respect you. “I’m trying to win over the stunt team,” in other words.
Ziegler said with a sarcastic smile, “They’re the cool kids.”
“They were the cool kids,” Mirren agreed with a nod. I didn’t say anything about my finger because I didn’t want to lose their love.
The 77-year-old actress tells worried Speed fans, “I just stand and look at Rome, but the driving was great.”
Zachary Levi, who plays the main character in the movie, talked about how Mirren hid an accident that happened on set.
The actor said, “I had no idea, but she’s such a tough cookie.” How can we have fun? is a question that shows how present and active she is. How can we move forward? It helps to have her around. This person is, in fact, a cultural hero.
Ziegler was surprised when he was asked to join the cast and crew of the hit comic book movie adaptation. He had only worked on Fury of the Gods before. Of course, it didn’t hurt that her first movie was Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story, which was nominated for an Oscar.
When asked about the event, the actress gushed, “It was great!” “I kept telling my family and friends that I’d been hit by lightning twice, but I don’t know why. I worked on West Side Story with two of the best artists of all time, Rita Moreno and Steven Spielberg. Now that my “sisters” Helen and Lucy and I are here, I’ll go… I am one of the world’s luckiest women.
ET also asked Levi about the future of his work after James Gunn and Peter Safran was hired as co-chairs and co-CEOs of DC Pictures late last year. This was a big change behind the scenes of the DC Comics cinematic universe.
Listen, I’ve already talked to Peter a few times, and I’m sure we’ll talk a lot more as we go along. The plan is to keep making this world and these people better. In other words, ET was told by Levi. There have been fun and much-appreciated changes made to the DCU. Since we’re a more family-friendly picture, we have genes that many of the other characters and extensions don’t have. A franchise like that could be funny in a lot of ways. It will make you want to go out and see the world, just like in the movies “The Goonies” and “Indiana Jones.”
Levi said, “The idea is to keep” the brand alive if the next Shazam! At the box office, the movie does well.
