A few months back it was reported that Willem Dafoe will be playing Vulko in next year’s Justice League. Now we have an interview published in The Guardian confirming the actor in another DC Extended Universe film, Aquaman.
“Justice League is very particular because it’s an ensemble movie and my character is being introduced here in order to be a principal role in Aquaman. These films are a different experience. They have different responsibilities, different resources and different intentions. It’s nice to go between those worlds if you can. They serve different impulses.”
As stated in Dafoe’s quote above, the character will be introduced in Justice League and play a substantial part in Aquaman.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
