KID­MAN RE­TURNS TO SU­PER­HERO GENRE

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Aus­tralian ac­tor Ni­cole Kid­man (left) could not say no to the of­fer of play­ing the mer­maid war­rior Queen At­lanna in the film Aqua­man. “The rea­son why I love [Aqua­man] is that [the di­rec­tor] James Wan (left) is an Aus­tralian, and... he’s a re­ally good friend of mine. As soon as he said I could wear mother-of-pearl and be a mer­maid war­rior, I said I’m done. Be­cause, you’ve got to have some fun,” Kid­man says.

Aqua­man is a su­per­hero — he is one of the founders of the Jus­tice League, and later be­comes the king of the leg­endary un­der­wa­ter king­dom of At­lantis — and this film marks Kid­man’s re­turn to the su­per­hero genre. She had pre­vi­ously done the film Bat­man For­ever (1995), play­ing the fe­male lead. The shoot­ing for Aqua­man be­gins in May.
