Latest ‘Wonder Woman’ image features Hippolyta, Antiope, and Menalippe
With Wonder Woman stealing everyone’s hearts before the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Entertainment Weekly has revealed our first look at Diana Prince’s homeland of Themyscira. In addition, we get our first look at Wonder Woman’s three “mothers”: Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta (Gladiator‘s Connie Nielsen), and her two military aunts, General Antiope (“House of Card’s” Robin Wright), and Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe (Force Majeure’s Lisa Loven Kongsli). Check it out!
The site also provides some backstory to how each character tries to raise Diana Prince: “This trio of immortals is responsible for both raising and training Diana — the only child on this estrogen heavy isle — but they don’t always agree. 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 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.’”
