Aquaman cast adds Power Rangers star Ludi Lin
Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films’ Aquaman cast has added another superhero in the form of Power Rangers star Ludi Lin, who Deadline reports will play Murk. Co-created by DC Extended Universe head honcho Geoff Johns, Murk is the leader of the front-line army of Atlantis known as the Men-of-War.
An icon for over 75 years, Aquaman is known by fans of DC Comics as the ruler of Atlantis but committed to protecting the entire globe, both land and sea. Shooting is currently underway on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, with extensive filming to be accomplished at Village Roadshow Studios. Filming will also take place in Newfoundland, Sicily and Tunisia.
Jason Momoa stars in the title role, returning to the character he plays in this fall’s Justice League. The film also stars Amber Heard (Justice League, Magic Mike XXL) as Mera; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man 2) as Vulko; Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, Green Lantern) as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (upcoming Baywatch, Netflix’s The Get Down) as Black Manta; with Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Lion) as Atlanna.
Directed by James Wan from a script by Will Beall, Geoff Johns and Wan, the film is being produced by Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Aquaman is currently set for a December 21, 2018 release.
