It looks like Nicole Kidman might be preparing to join the DC Extended Universe. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kidman is in talks to join the cast of James Wan’s Aquaman as the iconic heroes mother.
In DC Comics, Aquaman’s mother is royalty in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who falls in love with a Human lighthouse keeper and gives birth to a young hybrid who will act as the bridge between Earth and Atlantis.
This wouldn’t be the first DC Comics movie for Nicole Kidman, who starred alongside Val Kilmer in 1995’s Batman Forever. With production set to start in April, it’s great to see James Wan getting his supporting cast together.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, and Patrick Wilson. The film is scheduled for release on October 5, 2018.
Jason Momoa will appear as Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League before heading into the solo film. Check out the trailer below.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
