Now that Wonder Woman is gearing up for production, we’ve been getting a better idea of not only what to expect from the movie, but who will be participating. So far the only two confirmed members of the movie are Gal Gadot as the eponymous protagonist and Chris Pine as her love interest, Steve Trevor. Others have been rumored to join, like Eva Green, Sean Bean and a brief appearance from Ben Affleck’s Batman. Now a new name has joined the ranks: Nicole Kidman.

It was reported yesterday that Kidman is currently in negotiations to join Wonder Woman. This would be her second comic book movie role, having previously played Dr. Chase Meridian in 1995’s Batman Forever, though between the two, Wonder Woman would almost certainly be the more serious project. The original report said that Kidman will play a high ranking Amazon, but for the sake of argument, let’s assume that this is just one possibility and expand the scope to include other characters from Wonder Woman’s supporting cast. Take a look at the possible candidates Kidman could play should she join.

The most common assumption is that Kidman is playing Wonder Woman’s mother Hippolyta, and for good reason. After all, that fits the "high ranking Amazon" description, and it’s a juicy supporting role that gives Kidman a fair amount to do without being the center of attention. Admittedly, it would have been cool to see ‘70s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter play Hippolyta, but Kidman certainly looks more like the character from her Pre-Crisis years and the New 52. Beyond being the mother of the superheroine, Hippolyta is also queen of the Amazons on Themyscira, so she’ll be the one not only mentoring her daughter Diana, but also serve as an inspirational figure for everyone on the island, though I can’t imagine she’ll react well to Steve Trevor crash-landing into her home. You can also bet that should there be a moment in the movie when the Amazons have to battle against invading forces, Kidman’s Hippolyta will be the one leading the charge.
