The evidence that the DC Universe taking off in a very different direction continues to pile up. First, there were plenty of rumors that Ben Affleck was eyeing the door, then the rumors that Henry Cavill was leaving emerged, and now another cast member has said they aren’t sure if they are returning. Adam Adams was interviewing Nicole Kidman for Variety’s Actor on Actors series and Adams welcomed Kidman to the DC Universe with the upcoming role in Aquaman but followed up that she wasn’t sure if she was returning.
“I think I’m out of the DC Universe now. I think they’re revamping that. I don’t know the details.”
Now, this is by no means a confirmation that Adams is out but if Cavill is leaving then she likely is as well. Adams is a fantastic actress but the movies have, thus far, seemed unable to really find a place for Lois Lane. She has felt perfunctory in every movie she has appeared in which has always felt like a waste of her considerable talent. We’ll have to see if she ends up staying or going but some confirmations from Warner Bros. or DC would be appreciated by all.
Summary: Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.
Aquaman is directed by James Wan, stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, and will hit theaters on December 21st.
