Fisherman King flaunts his form in new Aquaman photo
Entertainment Weekly has given movie fans a glimpse of the Fisherman King and the people in his kingdom from the upcoming Aquaman movie in a new photo
The photo shows the trident toting Fisherman King, played by Djimon Hounsou, while being asked for help by Patrick Wilson’s King Orm to declare war against the culprits from the surface world. Hounsou is on a roll in terms of appearances in comic book movie adaptations. He’s also playing the Wizard in DC’s upcoming Shazam! film and will appear as Korath the Pursuer in Captain Marvel (reprising his role from Guardians of the Galaxy).
“After the fall of Atlantis, some of the kingdoms evolved and some devolved,” producer Peter Safran tells EW. “This is one that evolved. This is a kingdom that’s primarily artistic and cerebral, with poets and philosophers.”
An icon for over 70 years, Aquaman is the King of the Seven Seas. This reluctant ruler of Atlantis, caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, is committed to protecting the entire globe.
The Aquaman cast includes Jason Momoa (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League) as the titular King of Atlantis, with Amber Heard as his wife Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Ludi Lin as Murk, Patrick Wilson as King Orm/Ocean Master, Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane.
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. Rupert Gregson-Williams (Wonder Woman) will compose the music.
Aquaman opens on December 21 in theaters everywhere.
