We already have our Aquaman, Jason Momoa, what we don’t have are the rest of the characters. Amber Heard has been cast as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm, and with Nicole Kidman and Yahya Abdul-Mateen in final talks to portray Atlanna and Black Manta. So who should play the many characters left? Vote below for an actor/actress for each character! As always, let me know if I’m missing a character/actor in the comments!
*UPDATE – Amber Heard officially announced her casting as Queen Mera in Justice League Part 1 and the Aquaman solo film.*
Included in the fan-cast were: Alexandra Breckenridge, Amanda Righetti, Amber Heard (whoo!), Bryce Dallas Howard, Camilla Belle, Elizabeth Debicki, Emily Blunt, Gemma Arterton, Haley Bennett, Keira Knightley, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Isabel Lucas, Jessica Chastain, Natalie Dormer, Olga Kurylenko, Olivia Wilde, Paula Patton, Rachel Nichols, with Amber at #1.
I already had a Garth fan-cast in Titans but I decided to make a new one for this to better match the cinematic universe…I guess. I’m not sure what age they’re looking at for this character however, so I tried to mix it up.
Dolphin has been involved with both Arthur and Garth, so we’ll see how her storyline goes if she ever shows up in live-action.
*UPDATE – Elizabeth Debicki has been removed due to her casting in GOTG Vol. 2. Amber Heard has been removed due to her casting as Mera in JL/Aquaman.
LORENA MARQUEZ (Aquagirl)
I don’t know how much of the Aqua-family we’ll see, but we’ll fan-cast them all anyways. As for Lorena and Tula’s ages, I wanted one to be older than the other (but not as old as Aquaman/Mera), so Lorena I tried to keep a bit older while Tula’s fan-cast will feature younger casting.
JACKSON HYDE (Kaldur’ahm/Aqualad)
Again, don’t really know the plans for the Aquaman solo and which characters they’ll include. I think out of the Aqualads and Aquagirls Garth is the most likely to debut in the DCEU. Especially given Yahya’s age, he’s a bit young to have a son (at least in the age that we’re used to seeing Kaldur).
*UPDATE – Donald Glover removed due to casting in Spider-Man Homecoming. Michael B Jordan removed due to casting in Black Panther.*
Out of the Aquagirls, Tula I think is more likely to appear in the DCEU than Lorena is. I don’t know which version exactly they would go for, for example if she will be Orm’s half-sister, but perhaps we’ll find out soon!
OCEAN MASTER (Orm)
UPDATE – Patrick Wilson confirmed for the role!
The poll included Aiden Turner, Colin Egglesfield, Colin Farrel, Colin O’Donoghue, Daniel Gillies, Edgar Ramirez, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Dempsie, Joe Manganiello, Joseph Morgan, Luke Evans, Santiago Cabrera, Wes Bentley, Zachary Quinto, and Zach McGowan.
*UPDATE – Yahya Abdul-Mateen is in final talks to play Black Manta!
Included in the fan-cast was Andre Holland, Boris Kodjoe, David Oyelowo, DB Woodside, Denzel Washington, Isaiah Washington, Lance Gross, Michael Jai White, Michael Kenneth Williams, Omari Hardwick, Peter Mensah, Ricky Whittle, Roger Cross, Taye Diggs, Trai Byers.
