Robin Wright Could Be Playing A Superhero In ‘Wonder Woman’

Ever since House of Cards star Robin Wright was cast in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, her role, as well as pretty much every other role in the movie except for Chris Pines and Gal Gadot’s, has been kept under wraps. However, we now have a very interesting detail about the identity of her mystery character.

Ahead of this year’s Golden Globes, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Wright’s daughter, Dylan Penn, and asked her if her mother would be attending the event with her. While answering the question, Penn dropped a huge hint about Wright’s role in the movie. Here’s what she had to say:

THR asks Dylan Penn if she’s headed to Sunday’s Globes with her mother. “No, she’s not going,” she answers. “She’s training to be a super hero for a movie.” That movie is the upcoming Wonder Woman reboot.

So, who could Wright be playing? Queen Hippolyta seems like a safe bet, but there are obviously many more characters from the comic books that the actress could bring to life. What do you guys think? Feel free to speculate in the comment section below.
