The Kitchen's Tiffany Haddish Wants to Join This DC Film Franchise

The Kitchen star Tiffany Haddish revealed she'd like to play a key Wonder Woman character in the future.

Yahoo Entertainment asked Haddish if she'd want to play Batgirl with The Kitchen director Andrea Berloff helming the project. Although Berloff threw her support behind Haddish in the role, the actor, replied, "I’d rather be Wonder Woman’s sister, Nubia." Haddish then proved herself an expert on the subject of Nubia, citing the issue in which she first appeared.

First appearing in 1973's Wonder Woman #204, Nubia was created by Robert Kanigher and Don Heck and introduced as Wonder Woman's long-lost twin sister. Later issues explained the warrior was sculpted from clay alongside Wonder Woman by their mother, Queen Hippolyta, but Nubia was stolen by Mars, the God of War, shortly after being brought to life.

Nubia is also one of the first black superheroines, if not the first, in DC Comics history. However, she hasn't really had many appearances outside of the comics. Although evidence suggests there may have been plans to introduce her in the '70s Wonder Woman TV series, she never appeared.

Haddish also suggested playing Dark Horse heroine Mystery Girl, who debuted in 2015. Also known as "Trine Hampstead," this character is a genius who knows the answer to any question except that of her origins.
