‘Aquaman’ casts Randall Park as Dr Stephen Shin, also set for role in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

James Wan‘s Aquaman is currently undergoing some reshoots, and in the process, the film has added Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin.

Wan turned to twitter to pump Park joining the film: “So happy and fortunate to be finally working with this man, @parkrandall, on pickups. ” – @creepypuppet

Park will be playing Dr. Stephen Shin, a comic book character known to help a young Aquaman develop his powers, but would later grow obsessed with finding out where the lost city of Atlantis was located. Shin is also a friend of Aquaman’s human father in the comic books.
Park will also appear in the upcoming MCU film Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as the Atlantian superhero with Amber Heard as Aquaman’s love interest Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Dolph Lundgrenas King Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane.

Wan directs a script by Venom writer Will Beall. The film will follow the events of Justice League.

In the past, director James Wan revealed that the film’s technical elements were complicating the production slightly. “It’s a very technically challenging shoot to be on,” said Wan. “Working with water, and even the dry-for-wet sequences are very complex. … Our equivalent of two people sitting around chatting in the underwater world is super complicated. You have to think about CG with the hair, and how their clothing moves, how are they floating, what kind of rig we put them on and all that stuff. ”

Aquaman swims into theaters on December 21, 2018.
