AQUAMAN (2018): Ludi Lin Cast In DC Film

Ludi Lin

Ludi Lin To Play Supporting Role In Warner Bros’ Aquaman

Power Rangers actor Ludi Lin joins the cast of Warner Bros.’ upcoming film version of Aquaman as the character Murk.

A supporting character created in part by veteran comic writer and current DC Extended Universe chief Geoff Johns, Murk serves as the commander of the Men-of-War, the warriors who serve as Atlantis’ first line of defense. They, of course, answer to Aquaman, who is not only the ruler of the undersea kingdom but also a hero who works – sometimes reluctantly – with others like Batman and Superman to keep the world safe from any potential threats.

A relative newcomer, Lin appeared primarily in short films before landing an appearance in an episode of Netflix’s Marco Polo. Since then, he has gone on to appear in the Chinese action film Monster Hunt as well as the aforementioned Power Rangers.

Per Superherohype, the source of this story:

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.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
