Originally Nicole Kidman was set for this role (to a point where I even wrote a piece on her “in talks” casting but alas it was not to be. Nicole had to pull out due to shooting HBO’s limited series Big Little Lies & now another actress has been cast as Wonder Woman’s mother. Gladiator star Connie Nielsen has now joined the cast to play Queen Hippolyta.


The film also stars Gal Gadot as the title character, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, & Robin Wright It will be directed by Patty Jenkins & is slated for a June 17, 2017 release.
