One of the many characters featured in director James Wan’s Aquaman film will be Willem Dafoe’s Nuidis Vulko, though fans will be introduced to the King of Atlantis’ chief advisor when Justice League arrives in theaters this fall. While we have yet to be given on official look at Nuidis, Funko’s mystery mini figure of the character has offered what may be the best look at the character to date.
The image comes courtesy of Twitter user SindarMomoa and while fans may question the figure’s resemblance to Willem Dafoe, it does provide a glimpse of the character’s Atlantean armor and wardrobe.
You can check out the image of the figure in the post below!

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.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League will be released in theaters on November 17, 2017.
Reasons Behind The ‘Aquaman’ Hype
If I went back in time five or 10 years and told myself that Black Panther and Aquaman would be my most anticipated superhero movies of 2018, I would have said, “Ahhhh!” because time traveling is freaky. But I would also have been quite surprised about the movies, too. The former I knew only in passing and the latter by the frequent jokes made about him. We here at Heroic Hollywood previously talked about what got us most excited about Black Panther. But we haven’t yet talked about the positive developments behind-the-scenes of Aquaman that have turned the film into an unexpectedly-anticipated blockbuster.
Aquaman is the next DCEU ready for production, gearing up for filming to begin in April in Australia. Of course, the character played by Jason Momoa, a Hawaiian of mixed descent, has already debuted in video and photographs in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad respectively. The king of Atlantis gets his proper introduction in Justice League, coming this November. But its his solo feature, directed by James Wan, that has really grabbed my imagination. The superhero’s story intertwines many great comic book and genre tropes, from the Shakespearan family drama to civilizational clashes to the tragic origin stories. He’s is the first big-screen water superhero. As fascinating as space is, I can’t help but be as fascinated more by the mysterious blue depths.
