‘Wonder Woman’ film adds Nicole Kidman as Amazonian leader

Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman has added a big name with Nicole Kidman joining Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in the highly anticipated DC Comics film adaptation. Kidman is said to be playing a “Amazonian” – more below.

TheWrap broke news of Kidman joining Wonder Woman stating that Kidman will play a “high-ranking Amazonian warrior.” Her character name has not been revealed, but one possibility is that the description refers to Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons and Wonder Woman’s mother in the comics.

Jason Fuchs (Pan) is credited with the Wonder Woman script. Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing.

Gadot plays the title character, of course, and will make her debut in next year’s Batman v Superman: Wonder Woman. Pine is her love interest, Steve Trevor.

Wonder Woman won’t be Kidman’s first brush with the wide world of DC Comics. In 1995, she co-starred in Batman Forever as Dr. Chase Meridian, love interest to Val Kilmer’s Batman / Bruce Wayne.

Kidman kicked off 2015 with the surprise hit Paddington, and recently hit TIFF as part of Jason Bateman’s sophomore directorial effort The Family Fang.

Later this year she’ll be seen with Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor in The Secret in Their Eyes, a remake of the Argentinian thriller of the same name.

Wonder Woman begins shooting this year for release on June 23, 2017.
