Coming off from his well-received return as Agent Jimmy Woo in the acclaimed Marvel Cinematic Universe series WandaVision, it looks like Randall Park is ready to jump into another superhero universe in the form of James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Park has signed on to reprise his role as Dr. Stephen Shin in Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming DC sequel. Dr. Shin first appeared in the 2018 film, where fans had last seen him rescuing Black Manta during the film’s mid-credits scene.

In addition, the studio has also enlisted three new cast members to the franchise which includes Indya Moore (Pose, Escape Room: Tournament of Champions), Vincent Regan (300, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), and Chinese-Portuguese actress Jani Zhao (Jogo Duplo, The Sugar Captains) in her first major Hollywood film and English-language feature debut.

Moore is set to portray the role of classic DC character Karshon, who first appeared as a Green Lantern villain in 1963. In the comics, the character was originally a normal shark, who after getting hit with radiation, had gained abilities including intelligence and telepathic powers. As for Zhao, she is expected to portray the role of Stingray, an original character created just for the upcoming sequel.

Meanwhile, Regan will be playing Atlan, the ancient ruler of Atlantis who was first introduced in the first film during its flashback scenes and was first portrayed by Outlander’s Graham McTavish.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is being directed by Conjuring Universe creator James Wan from screenplay written by  David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. The sequel is produced by Wan and frequent collaborator Peter Safran. Wan previously teased that the sequel will feature a more serious and relevant story as well as some horror elements.

The sequel features the return of Jason Momoa as he reprises the leading role of Arthur Curry/Aquaman. Joining him are returning cast members including Patrick Wilson as Orm, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, and Amber Heard as Mera. It’s still unclear if other characters from the first film would also be appearing in the sequel like Nicole Kidman’s Atlanna, and Willem Dafoe’s Vulko. It was also previously reported that Momoa’s fellow Game of Thrones alum Pilou Asbaek was in talks to join the upcoming project.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is currently filming in London and is slated for a December 16, 2022 theatrical release.
