Queen Atlanna was sold to Nicole Kidman as a "female warrior from the sea"

Jason Momoa will rocket through the seas as Aquaman in his very own movie soon, if not before leaping off the Batmobile in JUSTICE LEAGUE this November. But his solo movie will be filled with tons of underwater heroes, including his mother Queen Atlanna, played by Nicole Kidman. James Wan desperately wanted to work with the Oscar winner (and fellow Aussie) and after being described the character she too was ready to dive on in.

While talking with Deadline the actress brought up how Wan approached her for the role of Atlanna, and how on top of wanting to work with a friend the way he sold the mother of Aquaman to her made the role too awesome to pass up:

Well, James Wan is Australian, and he’s a friend of mine. I think he’s going to make an amazing movie. We’ve always circled each other, so when he came to me, I was like, "James, I’ll do anything for you." When he said "female warrior from the sea" who wears mother-of-pearl, I went, "Yes. Female warrior from the sea. Me like."

Yes, we like too.

The action will be centered on the main hero of course, with another female warrior, Mera (Amber Heard) joining him, but chances are we could see Kidman kicking some serious deep sea ass given the epic battle our boys saw Cinema Con (above video). Kidman has proven herself again and again as one of our generations most committed and diverse actresses, and I’m sure she will bring a sense of regal grace to Atlanna to match her badassery. Aquaman has to learn it from somewhere, I suppose.

AQUAMAN will swim on in December 21, 2018.
