Will Nicole Kidman play in the new movie about Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman? That is the latest Hollywood Rumor. Kidman is no stranger to blockbuster movie rolls, but comic book movies are a little different. She has been in a comic book movie before though, having played Val Kilmer‘s love interest in “Batman Forever.” Fans of the character are currently going nuts.
According to a report by The Wrap, actress Nicole Kidman “is in ongoing negotiations to play a high-ranking Amazonian warrior alongside Gal Gadot (who plays Wonder Woman/ Diana Prince).” The report also states that Kidman’s role has not been confirmed. It also suggests the role could be Hyppolyta- the Queen of the Amazons, who also happens to be Diana Prince’s biological mother in the comic book series.
Warner Bros. is making this movie, and Patty Jenkins is directing.Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing “Wonder Woman” with Charles Roven and Richard Suckle of Atlas Entertainment. Jason Fuchs (“Pan”) wrote the script. The comic book movie will co-star Chris Pine as Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor.
While Kidman’s potential role has yet to be confirmed, the Queen of the Amazons in the “Wonder Woman” comics is Hyppolyta, who also happens to be Diana Prince’s biological mother — though it’s unclear whether the film will remain faithful to that storyline.
Wonder Woman will be introduced in next year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
