14 Apr – Director James Wan has taken to Twitter to announce the new addition to the cast of "Aquaman".
He posted a photo of himself with "Fresh off the Boat" star Randall Park, who has come on board while the movie is undergoing reshoots before its release later this year.
"So happy and fortunate to be finally working with this man, @parkrandall, on pickups. #DrShin," Wan captioned his post.
As the hashtag reveals, it is very likely that the story would focus on the origin of the soon-to-be King of the Seven Seas, with Dr. Stephen Shin as one of the key roles in making it happen.
Randall Park will be playing Dr. Stephen Shin.
Based on the comics, Dr. Shin was a friend of Arthur Curry's father, Tom Curry. Dr. Shin helped Arthur develop his powers soon after he discovered it.
Park currently plays a role in another superhero movie, "Ant-Man and the Wasp", as Jimmy Woo, making him one of the few people to play a role in both Marvel and DC movies like Ryan Reynolds as "Green Lantern (DC)" and "Deadpool (Marvel)" and Ben Affleck as "Batman (DC)" and "Daredevil (Marvel)".
