Nielsen is playing Wonder Woman’s mom, Hippolyta, with Wright as General Antiope and Kongsli as Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe. All of them live on Themyscira, a island that is hidden from the rest of the world, where the fierce Amazonian women of Greek legend still thrive.
EW comments, ‘Hippolyta, a revolutionary leader, longs to shelter her beloved daughter from the outside world, but Antiope, the Amazon responsible for Diana’s training, wants to prepare her. “She is the only child they raised together,” says [director, Patty Jenkins], calling from outside London, where she is deep into the film’s production. “And their love for her manifests in a different way for each of them.”
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman makes her debut in Batman v Superman, all ready to set up her own solo adventure, which Warner/DC will bring to cinemas in June 2017.
