Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, fans are now getting their first official look at Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna in James Wan’s “Aquaman.”
EW’s cover shows Kidman, Jason Momoa and Amber Heard in their respective characters. Kidman is wearing a light blue suit with a stunning head piece.
In March 2017, Kidman confirmed she was playing Aquaman’s mother in “Aquaman,” and there was a simple reason as to why she wanted to take on the role.
“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 told Entertainment Weekly. “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. Because, you’ve got to have some fun.”
Her role in the DC film marks her return to the superhero franchise — the last time she starred in a movie like that was in 1995’s “Batman Forever,” when she played Bruce Wayne’s girlfriend, Dr. Chase Meridian. However, since then, she’s won an Academy Award and has been nominated multiple times.
“Aquaman,” which also stars Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren and Patrick Wilson, will hit theaters on Dec. 21.
