Oscar winner Nicole Kidman is in negotiations to play a role in “Wonder Woman” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The role is said to be that of a high-ranking Amazonian warrior, with this in mind speculation is rife that the role will be that of Hyppolyta. For those not familiar with the comic lore Hyppolyta is the queen of the Amazons and the biological mother of Diana Prince (Wonder Woman).
Nicole Kidman has experience with DC comic book movies before after appearing in 1995s “Batman Forever” as Dr. Chase Meridian opposite Val Kilmer as the caped crusader.
Patty Jenkins will direct with Gal Gadot starring in the title Role. Chris Pine is set to star as Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor. Jason Fuchs who recently wrote “Pan” is writing the script. The film is set to open on June 23rd 2017.
