'This is where you hang out with all your superhero friends?' she asks the actor, who is reprising his role as Billy Batson, a hero empowered with the gifts of ancient gods by the Wizard.   

Zegler, who plays Maria in Steven Spielberg's upcoming musical West Side Story, at one point also appears to be taken hostage as she calls out for help. 

In the behind-the-scenes look, Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, who portrays Greek god Atlas' daughters Hespera and Kalypso, are seen fighting.
