It has been over two decades since actress Nicole Kidman ventured into the DC Universe with her role in the 1995 film Batman Forever. In that film, the Academy Award winner portrayed the love interest of billionaire Bruce Wayne, Dr. Chase Meridian. Since then, Kidman has not revisited the superhero genre. However, that's all about to change as she prepares to star as Queen Atlanna in James Wan's DCEU entry Aquaman.
And she has a good reason for returning to the world of DC Comics.
"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," she says. "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."
We couldn't agree more.
James Wan is directing the film from a script by Will Beall. Wan wrote a treatment for Aquaman alongside DC Entertainment co-president Geoff Johns.
Starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Aquaman swims into theatres on December 21, 2018.
