The second trailer for Shazam! Fury of the Gods has arrived, and it offers a look at the showdown between Zachary Levi’s hero and Helen Mirren as new villain Hespera.

The sequel to the 2019 DC movie is once again directed by David F. Sandberg, and promises to follow Billy Batson and his foster siblings as they fight the daughters of Atlas. This time around he doesn’t have to fight them alone, as his siblings have acquired the same types of power he has. Levi returns as Billy Baston in his adult superhero form, while Asher Angel portrays him as a child. Jack Dylan Grazer and Adam Brody, meanwhile, portray the child and adult versions of Frederick Freeman, respectively.

The rest of the cast is rounded out by Ross Butler, Ian Chen, Meagan Good, Faithe Herman, Lucy Liu, Dijmon Hounsou, and Helen Mirren. The movie actually marks Mirren’s superhero movie debut, although she’s flirted with big-budget blockbusters more recently thanks to a string of memorable appearances in the Fast and Furious franchise. And let’s face it; Dominic Toretto is basically a superhero.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is set to hit theaters on March 17, and is the first of four movies expected to arrive this year as part of the DC Extended Universe. It will be followed by the highly-troubled The Flash—which is still scheduled to arrive in June despite everything going on with Ezra Miller—and Blue Beetle, which is scheduled for August. Finally, James Wan’s Aquaman sequel, The Long Kingdom, is on track to arrive in theaters on December 25.

Watch the trailer for the Shazam sequel above.
