‘Power Rangers’ Star Ludi Lin Heads Under the Sea for ‘Aquaman’

Aquaman Murk Ludi Lin
DC Comics, ‘Aquaman’

Alright, so maybe Power Rangers wasn’t the beginning of a new superhero franchise its studio was hoping for, but at least some good will come out of the film. Ludi Lin, the Chinese-Canadian actor who played the Black Ranger in Lionsgate’s film, has officially been put on the fast track to Hollywood action stardom with a supporting role in Aquaman, DC’s upcoming film about the Machiavellian goings-on in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. Yes, he’s in luck there, down in the muck there, under the sea.

According to Deadline (via Heroic Hollywood), Ludi will be playing one of the comrades-in-arms of Jason Momoa’s title character. The Wikipedia for the Aquaman universe  —  try and make sense of that sentence, time travelers!  —  describes Murk as the leader of the Men-at-War, Atlantis’ elite fighting force, as well as the captain of the Atlantis royal guard. In DC’s New 52 universe, Murk is initially at odds with Aquaman before becoming one of his fiercest allies. The more details they release about the film, the more it sounds like DC’s answer to the Thor movies, Shakespearean drama masquerading as science-fiction. Either way, it’s good to see Warner Bros. open up the casting a little bit and bring some non-white actors into their aquatic wonderland.

With plenty of talent both behind and in front of the camera, Aquaman now seems like the DC franchise to pick if you’re looking to make a name for yourself on the superhero scene. It wasn’t that long ago that a good cast turned Tony Stark into an A-list character in the Marvel universe; with an impressive group of actors and James Wan at the helm, maybe Aquaman will be the Iron Man, not the Thor, of the DC Cinematic Universe.

Aquaman will star Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, and Temuera Morrison. The film is still set for a December 21 release date in 2018.
