Dolph Lundgren Talks Playing King Nereus in Aquaman

Action icon Dolph Lundgren (Masters of the Universe, Expendables franchise) recently spoke to the Las Vegas Review-Journal about his role as King Nereus in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Aquaman movie!

“It is good to be king,” Lundgren said. “Basically, I try to keep the peace down there along with Amber Heard, who plays my daughter. She’s trying to convince me to join the right side. Then you have Nicole Kidman as Aquaman’s mother. We’re trying to avoid war between the surface dwellers and the people of Atlantis.”
