Rachel Zegler is a relative newcomer to movies, but her debut in “West Side Story” has clearly shown that she is ready for the big time. Not only is she playing the third and youngest daughter of Atlas, Anthea, but she is also about to blow up even more as she is set to play Snow White in the Disney live-action remake of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and will also appear in the next installment of “The Hunger Games” franchise, “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.”
Her character in “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” is a little different in that there isn’t any comic book counterpart or even one from the Greek myths. While there is no daughter of Atlas with a similar name, there is a daughter of Zeus whom plenty of people may confuse her for. Athena was the goddess of strategic war and wisdom, which could make her a formidable enemy for any superhero. While we don’t want to spoil anything in the film, there are indications that she may be torn between two families, hers and the Shazam family.
Even without a comic book precedent, the Daughters of Atlas are more than a match for the Shazam Family, while the three actresses portraying them are a great mix of two legends and a fresh face.
