While promoting Killing of a Sacred Deer at the Toronto International Film Festival, star Nicole Kidman discussed her character for the upcoming Aquaman film.
Kidman’s role in the film is that of Atlanna, the mother of Arthur Curry/Aquaman, and she seems to have had a blast while filming. Kidman discussed her look of Atlanna while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, who tweeted out a snippet of the interview, which you can check out below:

“I got to be a mermaid! I got to be a queen, I got to wear a crown…I have a particular way of looking. I got to lie on a rock with my hair strewn, and blood. And I kind of liked it.”
While Kidman’s remarks don’t speak much regarding the film or her character, they do certainly offer a rough outline of what her character will look like.
While we won’t be seeing Atlanna on the big screen for a while, Aquaman will next be seen in the long-awaited Justice League. You can check out the full synopsis below.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

7 Green Lantern Stories We’d Love To See Adapted For The Big Screen
There were no major Green Lantern characters in Justice League, but the hero is eventually set to hit the big screen again in 2020 with Green Lantern Corps. The real mystery is what kind of Lantern stories will the movie have and who will wield a ring? The only thing I know is it’s not a good idea to wait for Ryan “Deadpool” Reynolds to mutter the Green Lantern oath on the big screen anytime soon.
There are so many stories and unique Green Lanterns the movie could draw from, so at the end of the day I hope the material is treated with the respect it deserves. It took some hard work, but I whittled my favorite stories down to this list of seven easily adaptable arc that show off some of the action and emotion Green Lantern has to offer. Don’t expect to recommend any simple origin stories here, though — man-oh-man am I tired of seeing those.
