Nicole Kidman in talks to play Aquaman’s mom

Nicole Kidman is in talks to play Aquaman’s mum.

If she signs on she’ll be heading home to Australia for the winter, as director James Wan will be shooting Down Under from April.

It won’t be her first DC Comics role – Kidman played Dr. Chase Meridian opposite Val Kilmer in 1995’s Batman Forever.

The new film also features Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard, who is attached to play Mera, Aquaman’s royal love interest, and Willem Dafoe will portray scientist Nuidis Vulko. Watchmen star Patrick Wilson has been cast as Orm, the hero’s villainous half-brother.
