Connie Nielsen Cast as Hippolyta in Wonder Woman


The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned that Danish actress, best known for her role in Gladiator, has been cast as Princess Diana’s (Gal Gadot) mother, Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons in Wonder Woman.

This comes as surprising news, as many fans were leaning towards the idea that Robin Wright was in fact playing Hippolyta, even after the recent report of what Wright’s daughter revealed this past weekend.

Now with this latest casting, this leaves Wright’s undisclosed character still very much a mystery, but at the same it’s a sigh of relief that we now have our Hippolyta in the DC Extended Universe, in Connie Nielsen.
