Ludi Lin, who played the Black Ranger in the recent Power Rangers movie, has been cast in DC's 2018 superhero film Aquaman.

No Caption Provided

According to Deadline, Lin will play Murk, the Commander of the Atlantian Royal Guard and leader of the Men-Of-War, the frontline army for Atlantis. He joins Jason Mamoa, who plays the titular role, which will be directed by James Wan (The Conjuring).

Murk is a relatively new character who first appeared in 2013 in Aquaman #17. He wascreated by Geoff Johns and Paul Pelletier. While Murk is extremely loyal to Atlantis and its people, there have been numerous occasions where this complex character is untrusting and questions the loyalty of Aquaman and Aquaman's wife Mera.

Lin joins Dolph Lungren, who plays King Nereus, along with The Get Down star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who plays Aquaman's arch-nemesis Black Manta. Although it was originally slated for an October 2018 release, Aquaman has been pushed back and will now come out on December 21, 2018.

I'm not quite sure why did Murk become such a popular character but I'm hoping this casting choice works out for the best

He should've been casted as Garth.

Could it be... the return of the Comic Vine news section?!

Personally, I would have gotten Isaiah Mustafa to play Manta. But that's just me.

I think he would be better as Garth.

He looks nothing like Murk.

He looks nothing like Murk.

Few of DC's supporting castings actually look like their comic counter-part.

I almost think he is Garth, and Wan or WB wants to keep it under wraps for some reason. He'd be a perfect Garth and is a bit small for Murk.

Think he'll nail it either way, I fully trust James Wan with this!

The cast of this movie is amazing... Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lungren, etc...

Haven't seen any of her movies, so I'll trust the casting execs at DC until Aquaman comes out.

@bobthened: Yeah I thought the same thing, he's so small too.
