What a day for casting news! Here’s another one we didn’t see coming. According to THR, Dolph Lundgren (Universal Soldier, Rocky IV, The Expendables) has signed on to play King Nereus in James Wan’s Aquaman. alongside Jason Momoa portraying King of Atlantis.
This leads us to believe that Aquaman will be facing off against multiple villains in the film. We, here at That Hashtag Show, have heard that there will be a villain in for every sea. In the comics, Nereus is the rule of the kingdom of Xebel who covents Mera (Amber Heard), and makes it his mission to destroy her husband, Aquaman.
We already know that Aquaman will have to battlePatrick Wilson as Ocean Master and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta, so add another villain to that list.
Aquaman is currently set for a December 2018 release, and is expected to shoot in Australia next month.
