Another Academy Award winner is getting ready to join the DC universe! According to some speculations, famed actress and one of Hollywood’s A-listers Nicole Kidman is negotiating her way to a role in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

However, the rumors aren’t stopping there. Namely, if she joins the cast, Kidman will be playing a high-ranking Amazonian warrior, quite possibly Hippolyta.

This is a truly big role in the DC universe, as Hippolyta – the Queen of the Amazons, is in fact Wonder Woman’s biologic mother.

The famed heroine is played by Gal Gadot, who stirred quite the commotion last year when the public saw the poster for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

Many argued that, although Gadot seemed “okay for the job,” her costume was more fit for Xena than the famed Diana Prince.

The movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins, while the script got penned down by Jason Fuchs. The story will follow Wonder Woman’s origin story, and it will give us a better chance of getting to know Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine), the human who wins Wonder Woman’s heart, than it did in the comics.

Wonder Woman is set to premiere in June, 2017.

If you can’t wait that long to see the talented Kidman, you can check her out in Secret In Their Eyes, which is set for a March 2017 premiere.
