    With JL trailer recently confirming that Billy Crudup plays Henry Allen, we pretty much got all Leaguers' parents at this point.

    I actually want Atlanna to be alive. The 80's Aquaman mini series had Arthur on a chain gang after being captured by the Atlanteans and for a period of time his mother saw him regularly on that chain gang. Would be powerful stuff to see that play out in live action.

    They should all band together (assuming WW's are still alive) and form the Parental Justice League.

    Martha(!), Henry, Zeus(?), Atlanna, Aquadad.

    Sorry Bruce. Maybe if Alfred sobers up.

    I know Momoa isn't sporting the golden mane but any guesses if the whole Kordax thing gets integrated in some way? Maybe it explain's why Atlanna is separate from Arthur and his father?

    I wonder if we will see Atlanna but in the underwater scenes? Hopefully so but I hope we get at least some concept art for her soon

    I know Nicole has fallen out of favour a bit with Hollywood but I reckon she might rock this role. I could see her as an obsessed tiger mum. A bit like veruca salt's mum from Charlie and the chocolate factory but obviously way deadlier

    Kidman has fallen out of favor? She was just nominated for an Oscar for Lion and is getting rave reviews for her performance in the HBO series Big Little Lies. She seems to be doing great.

    Yeah but generally when you talk to people they're like "oh I'm over her"

    Or maybe that's just an Australian thing

    Well, she's certainly not a Hollywood starlet type anymore, but the last year has definitely been a highlight for her career, I think.

    Oh Atlanna is aquaman's mum? I thought she was Mera's mum. I was looking forward to Nicole Kidman going full tiger mum and trying to get Mera to marry and then assassinate Arthur.

    Lol sorry I've got a lot to catch up on. I'm mostly a marvel guy

    How large will be Nicole Kidmans role Queen Atlanna in this movie? Will she be involved in action sequences or only in flashback sequences? She actually mentioned in an interview, thath she will play a mermaid warrior and as a oscar winner she should have a larger role. So Justin Wan should not waste her talent. What do you think?

    It depends on what story line they actually pull from.

    I hope they give her a little bit to work with. And don't make her a saint. I hate when mothers in comic book films come across as the madonna.

    I would actually rather the real madonna

    Yeah me too. It sounds like they're making her a full warrior woman type character which is going to be exciting. I bet she's going to be the first character we see during the film's opening.

    Oh my gosh, imagine how cool the first scene of the movie is going to be!

    Would it it be fun if when we meet Atlanta she's basically a spoilt little rich girl who just wants to go to a different place and party like it's Bali or Mexico or something. But then she meets Arthur's old man and actually thinks he's alright and that relationship convinces her to be the best warrior queen she can be

    Justice league spoilers

    Sounds like Arthur has some massive problems with his mum in this. Can't wait to see how that plays out. Nicole's does flawed people so well
