May 16 (UPI) -- Power Rangers star Ludi Lin has been cast in Warner Bros.' upcoming superhero epic, Aquaman.

Lin is set to appear in the film as Murk, an ally of Aquaman (Jason Momoa), who leads an Atlantis army known as the Men-of-War, Deadline reported.

The role is the first major casting for the actor since appearing as Black Ranger Zack in the latest adaptation of Power Rangers, which released in March.

Lin joins an all-star cast that includes Amber Heard as royal love interest Mera, Patrick Wilson as Aquaman's half-brother Orm, also known as the villainous Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Aquaman's adviser, Dr. Vulko, Nicole Kidman as Aquaman's mother and Get Down star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as signature antagonist Black Manta.

Dolph Lundgren recently signed onto the project to play King Nereus of the aquatic kingdom of Xebel who wants to kill Aquaman and claim Mera as his own.

Production on the film began in May with director James Wan sharing on Instagram a photo from the set that appeared to feature the inside of a submarine.

Aquaman swims into theaters Dec. 21, 2018.
