Nicole Kidman Won’t be in “Wonder Woman,” Robin Wright May Take Over Role

“Wonder Woman” has officially been in production for nearly a month now, but there may be a new shakeup in the cast.

Academy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman was in talks with Warners Bros. for a pivotal role in the film back in early November. Now, however, Variety’s Justin Kroll has reported that scheduling conflicts have prevented Kidman from signing on, which could cause a shift in current casting. As Comic Book Movie notes, it appears WB and director Patty Jenkins are considering replacing Kidman with the already-cast Robin Wright.

The running theory was that Kidman was being sought to play Diana/Wonder Woman’s mother, Queen Hippolyta, a role many initially thought would belong to Wright after she signed on for an unnamed character. With Kidman officially passing on the project, it looks like there’s a chance Wright may end up playing the part after all.

Opening June 23, 2017, “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot in the title role, with Chris Pine playing her love interest Steve Trevor. Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis also star in the film. Recently leaked set photos appear to confirm the long-rumored World War I setting for the film.
