Reminding us that even hulking sea kings love their mamas, Variety reports that Nicole Kidman is in talks to join the cast of James Wan’s Aquaman. Kidman would play Atlanna, the undersea princess whose fetish for grizzled, lonely lighthouse keepers ultimately leads to Aquaman’s conception and eventual birth.

Kidman would be joining a rapidly expanding cast, led by Game Of Thrones’ Jason Momoa as the king of the seas himself. Earlier today, Warner Bros. confirmed that The Get Down’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will be playing the film’s primary villain, Black Manta, while Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, and Willem Dafoe are also all expected to star.
