With production on the film set to begin this month, we should expect to learn the full cast of Warner Bros. & DC’s upcoming Wonder Woman solo film very soon. The Wrap is reporting that Nicole Kidman is currently in negoatiation to join Gal Gadot & Chris Pine in the Patty Jenkins directed film in a very key role. The site reports that the Academy Award winning actress is up for a role that is being described as a “high-ranking Amazonian warrior”. While there are a number of characters that this could possibly be, with an actress of her caliber I’d say that its highly likely that the role that is being described is Queen Hippolyta, who in the comics is the leader of the Amazonians and the mother of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman.
Will the film go this route with the character? That remains to be seen but there’s always the chance that things might be changed for this big-screen adaptation. However, there while there are rumors that they are looking to cast this role at the moment, it remains to be seen if this is the exact role Kidman is in talks for. This addition would definitely be another major plus for this film’s cast. Let us know your thoughts on all of this in the comments section below.
Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters June 23, 2017.
