With Wonder Woman continuing to work wonders at the box office, it’s clear audiences can’t get enough of Diana and her fellow Amazons, so it is a good thing a number of them are set to reappear in the upcoming Justice League.
While we already knew Connie Nielsen will reprise her role as Queen Hippolyta, it’s now confirmed that Robin Wright will return as General Antiope in the ensemble film.
During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Gal Gadot, Nielsen and Wright were asked whether there will be an opportunity to further explore the relationship depicted in Wonder Woman between Diana and Hippolyta. “Of course,” Gadot replied. “The mother and daughter relationship is always a beautiful but complex relationship. I think that there’s a lot more to explore.”
Neilsen added, “[Wright and I] got to do more in Justice League as well. As sisters as well. Kind of badass as well. We can’t say much, but …” She was then interrupted by Wright, who offered, “And more of the story, you get some of the history.”
Arriving November 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
