Wonder Woman introduced Queen Hippolyta and the Amazons of Themyscira to the DC Extended Universe. Playing Queen Hippolyta was actress Connie Nielsen, who will reprise her role in the upcoming Justice League film. In an interview with Flickering Myth, Nielsen shared the story of her first meeting with Gal Gadot and teased Queen Hippolyta role in Justice League.
Nielsen recounted her “awkward” first meeting with Gal Gadot:
“The first time I met Gal I was in the make up trailer inside a tanning tent getting spray tanned – a uniquely clammy experience – when, as I step out of the tent, naked but for a thong, Gal is whipping off her clothes to get into the tent – and that’s where we said hello the first time. Playing her mother added an extra twist to awkward.”
Nielsen could only offer a small tease of what fans can expect from Hippolyta in Justice League:
“Sorry, only that Hippolyta is a badass.”
