‘Aquaman’: ‘Star Wars’ Temuera Morrison in Talks to Join Cast
It seems like Aquaman man news just keeps dropping just these days, but hey I’m not complaining. Earlier this week, offers went out to Nicole Kidman and The Get Down actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and both are now in early negotiations. Well now it looks like we have another actor negotiating a deal to become a part of the DCEU franchise.
According to THR, Temuera Morrison, will play Aquamans’s human father. Morrison, is best known for his work playing Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels, is in negotiations to join the cast of Aquaman, Warner Bros.’s big-screen take of the classic underwater-breathing comic book superhero aka THE GOAT.
The cast includes Jason Momoa as the title character, Amber Heard as Mera, Aquaman’s love interest, and Willem Dafoe as Aquaman’s advisor, scientist Dr. Vulko. Patrick Wilson, who starred in Wan’s Conjuring movies, will play Orm, a villain who happens to be Aquaman’s half-brother.
If deals goes through, Kidman would play Aquaman’s mother who hails from the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, while Abdul-Mateen will play the villain, Black Manta.
James Wan is set to direct this project. He is currently prepping the movie for an April start in Australia.
