Kidman eyes off Wonder Woman role

According to The Wrap and Movie Web, Nicole Kidman is currently in negotiations to join DC’s big Wonder Woman movie. Not much is known about what role she would play, but it would be a “high-ranking Amazonian warrior.”

For many, that immediately brings to mind Wonder Woman’s mum, Hyppolyta, Queen of the Amazons. You don’t get much higher ranking than that. Add in the personal relationship she has with Wonder Woman, and it sounds like a safe bet.

It’s hard to get excited, however, since we know so little about Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman as a character. She showed up briefly in the last Batman v Superman trailer, but mostly just as a moving human in a WW outfit. Hopefully she’s great. We’re definitely stuck with her for a while.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman is supposed to come out June 23, 2017. As for Nicole Kidman, if she’s in the film, it at least has a good chance at being better than her last romp in the DCU.
