EW.com are reporting that Nicole Kidman has officially joined the cast of Warner Bros. Aquaman solo movie, and will – as was heavily rumoured – play the title hero’s mother, Queen Atlanta.
Speaking about why she took the role, Kidman said “The reason why I love [Aquaman] is James Wan is an Australian, and I’ve followed his career since he started. He’s a really good friend of mine, and he offered to let me play Queen Atlanna. As soon as he said I could wear mother-of-pearl and be a mermaid warrior, I said I’m done. Please. If there is one thing I have to do in my life, I have to be that. [Laughs] Because, you’ve got to have some fun.”
Directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson and Yahya Abdul-Malden II, Aquaman is set to hit cinemas in December 2018.
