Characters from Wonder Woman coming back for Justice League

But wait. How can this be so. It has been revealed recently that both Connie Neilsen (Hippolyta) and Robin Wright (Antiope) will appear briefly in Justice League in November. This might be spoilery, but one of those characters is going to be challenging to bring back given what transpires during a battle in the first 45 minutes of Wonder Woman.

In a new interview with the LA Times, Wonder Woman stars Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen have revealed that we’ll be seeing their characters again.

Here’s the exchange:

The film only briefly touches on the relationship between Queen Hippolyta and Diana. Are we going to see more of that in the future?

Gadot: Of course; the mother and daughter relationship is always a beautiful but complex relationship. I think that there’s a lot more to explore.

Nielsen: And [Wright and I] got to do more in “Justice League” as well. As sisters as well. Kind of badass as well. We can’t say much, but …

Wright: And more of the story, you get some of the history.

Well, that’s interesting…and I suppose there’s any number of ways Hippolyta (Nielsen) and Antiope (Wright) might be brought back into the fold – although one of those character might be a stretch. But maybe they reappear via flashback, maybe the Justice League takes a field trip to Themyscira. Anyway, however Zack Snyder makes this happen it will be interesting.

I for one am eager to see Hippolyta and Antiope back in action when Justice League arrives in November. Colour me intrgued.
