Veteran Swedish action icon Dolph Lundgren has joined the cast of DC’s upcoming Aquaman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lundgren will star as King Nereus, the leader of a rival colony of Atlanteans called Xebel. The Hollywood Reporter claims Nereus wants to kill Aquaman and seize Mera, Aquaman’s Queen.
Lundgren will feature alongside a cast of Hollywood heavyweights, including Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, and Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison as Aquaman’s parents. The film will be helmed by director James Wan (Saw, Furious 7).
