Many in the geek community were first introduced to Ludi Lin when he played the Black Ranger in the 2017 Power Rangers reboot. Now, audiences will have the opportunity to see him in an even bigger blockbuster, Aquaman.
Lin plays Murk, the Captain of the Men-of-War army of Atlantis. Much like in Power Rangers, Lin gets to don yet another suit that gives him special abilities and powers as he is shown jumping throughout the small city in Sicily, Italy as he along with other Men-of-War members and Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) chase down Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard).
In an interview with SyFy Wire, Lin explained that donning his suit as Murk was even more difficult to shoot with than his Black Ranger suit in Power Rangers. Given the action-packed nature of the James Wan production, difficulty in bringing those sequences to life was a massive challenge for Lin:
“But the most challenging part was the suit, probably. It was even harder to move and more inflexible than the Power Rangers armor. It was heavier too, like a hundred something pounds — it was so heavy. And just working with the stunt teams, I would always just be completely exhausted and flabbergasted by the end of the day. We were soaked not in water but in our sweat.”
Leave it to the production of Aquaman to push Ludi Lin further into the action than even Power Rangers could. Despite being a supporting player in the film, Murk is prominently featured in one of the best sequences of the film, and has one of the funnier moments within that sequence as well.
Here is the synopsis for the film:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
Aquaman is in theaters now!
