Ludi Lin To Play Supporting Role In Warner Bros’ Aquaman
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.
