New Wonder Woman casting rumour would be a coup if true

Things have been a bit quiet on the Wonder Woman front recently, but that’s changed with a new casting rumour that would give the DC comics movie some serious clout.

The Wrap is reporting that Nicole Kidman is in negotiations “to play a high-ranking Amazonian warrior” in the Patty Jenkins-directed movie, potentially joining Gal Gadot as Diana Prince and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.

They suggest that Kidman could be up for the role of Hipollyta, Queen of the Amazons and Wonder Woman’s mother, but there’s just no way of knowing at this point.

Wonder Woman will be released in cinemas on 23 June 2017. For more about the comics that inspired the film, pick up the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics: Revised Edition bookazine now.
