While attending W Magazine's "Best Performances" Issue Party on Thursday, Dylan Penn, the daughter of actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright, provided The Hollywood Reporter with an interesting reason as to why her mother wasn't attending the 73rd Annual Golden Globes Awards.

9:21 p.m. - THR asks Dylan Penn if she’s headed to Sunday’s Globes with her mother. “No, she’s not going,” she answers. “She’s training to be a super hero for a movie.” That movie is the upcoming Wonder Woman reboot.

When Warner Bros. released an official cast list for Wonder Woman it included a couple surprises, like the inclusion of Robin Wright, who is best known for playing Claire Underwood on Netflix's House of Cards and Princess Buttercup in The Princess Bride. The press release didn't reveal who she is playing in the film, though, many assume Queen Hippolyta, Wonder Woman's mother. We shall see!

The film stars Gal Gadot in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor and Trevor's grandfather. It also stars Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis. Wonder Woman is being directed by Patt Jenkins (Monster, AMC’s The Killing).

Wonder Woman feature film is set to open in 2017.

    I believe in some versions, Hippolyta was the first Wonder Woman before Diana took on that mantle.

  1. How can it be a Wonder Woman reboot if she's never been in a film before?
