Aquaman stars Jason Momoa in the title role, alongside Patrick Wilson as Aquaman’s villainous half-brother Orm Marius, Nicole Kidman as Aquaman’s mother, Willem Dafoe Dr. Vulko, and ’80s action icon Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus.
Earlier this month, Momoa spoke about his role in the film and explained that that unlike Batman or Superman, this wasn’t a character who already had an established identity onscreen. “We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field,” Momoa said. “There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”
Aquaman hits theaters on October 5, 2018.
