The Aquaman casting news keep on coming, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman is in early talks to play the titular character’s mother in the James Wan-directed movie.
Earlier today, THR also broke the news that Aquaman has found its Black Manta in The Get Down star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. It seems like Wan and the studio are starting to round out the cast of the project as it heads towards an April production start at the Village Roadshow Studios in Australia.
Jason Momoa stars as the eponymous Atlantean, following his debut in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He’ll next be seen in the role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which opens in theaters this November.
Aquaman arrives on October 5, 2018. The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Patrick Wilson as Orm, a.ka. Ocean Master.
