LION And Former BATMAN FOREVER Star Nicole Kidman In Talks to Join Jason Momoa In AQUAMAN

Black Manta isn't the only piece of Aquaman casting news we're getting today, as a new report has revealed that Warner Bros. is eyeing Nicole Kidman to play Arthur Curry's mother. Come take a look!

In addition to their awesome Black Manta scoop from earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Nicole Kidman is also being eyed to join the cast of Warner Bros.' upcoming underwater superhero adventure Aquaman

The Academy Award-winning actress is currently only in early talks for the James Wan-directed film, but if she signs on, she'll portray Aquaman's mother. While the report doesn't give us a name, it's almost guaranteed she'd be playing his birth mother Atlanna and not his adoptive mother Porm (who is a dolphin).

This is now WB's second attempt at trying to lure Kidman into the DC Films Universe as she was previously in talks with the studio, just a little over a year ago, to join Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman as Queen Hippolyta, but bowed out fairly early in the process due to a reported scheduling conflict. Also, if her deal closes, this will mark Kidman's second venture into the world of DC superhero movies, having previously portrayed Dr. Chase Meridian in 1995's Batman Forever.

The Aquaman cast is headlined by Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones), who will star as Arthur Curry, and also features Amber Heard (London Fields) as Mera, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) as Dr. Vulko, Patrick Wilson (Fargo) as Orm, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Get Down) as Black Manta. Additionally, Momoa, Heard, and Dafoe are all expected to make appearances in Zack Snyder's Justice League this fall. 

Kidman is currently in the Oscar race for her performance as Sue Brierley in Garth Davis' critically acclaimed drama Lion and her past credits include, but are not limited to, Days of Thunder, Far and Away, Eyes Wide Shut, Moulin Rouge!The OthersThe HoursBewitchedRabbit Hole, and Just Go With It. Her upcoming projects include The Untouchables, How to Talk to Girls at Parties, The BeguiledThe Killing of a Sacred Deer, and the HBO limited series Big Little Lies, which co-stars Reese Witherspoon
