What would be the point of getting out of bed if we didn’t some good old fashioned geek news along the way?! In the comics, Atlanna is not only the currently Queen of Atlantis, but the mother of Arthur Curry (Aquaman) after a night out results in her getting it on with a human. Aquaman’s father tells him that his “real” mother died in childbirth, but he sets out to find the truth! At least, that’s in the New 52 origin of the character, but there have been countless renditions.
If Kidman nabs the part she will join a long list of actors for the October 2018 blockbuster: Jason Mamoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, William Dafoe and the list goes on. This casting news, while incredible, shouldn’t get you TOO hyped for the upcoming DC origin though… they haven’t had a stellar track record with their cinematic universe, as of late, but we are all holding out hope that Wonder-woman and Justice League change that when they hit theaters later this year.
