JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017): Robin Wright To Return For Crossover

Robin Wright Set To Reprise Wonder Woman Role For Justice League

Emmy Award-nominated House of Cards actress Robin Wright will appear again as Wonder Woman‘s General Antiope in Justice League. Please be advised that this story contains spoilers regarding Wonder Woman.

The news will come as a shock to anyone who watched the record-breaking DC superhero film as they know that Antiope died relatively early on in the film when her and Diana’s homeland of Themisycra was attacked by German invaders. This could mean that Wright’s character will merely appear in a flashback scene or that she will somehow be revived by the time of the events of League.

Additionally, her co-star Connie Nielsen has already been tapped to return as Diana’s mother Queen Hippolyta for the next installment of the DC Extended Universe.

Per CBR.com, the source of this story:

During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Gal Gadot, Nielsen and Wright were asked whether there will be an opportunity to further explore the relationship depicted in Wonder Woman between Diana and Hippolyta. “Of course,” Gadot replied. “The mother and daughter relationship is always a beautiful but complex relationship. I think that there’s a lot more to explore.”

Neilsen added, “[Wright and I] got to do more in Justice League as well. As sisters as well. Kind of badass as well. We can’t say much, but …” She was then interrupted by Wright, who offered, “And more of the story, you get some of the history.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
