In a recent interview, Randall Park talked a bit about his return as Stephen Shin for the upcoming Aquaman sequel starring Jason Momoa.
An Aquaman sequel was setup during the film’s mid-credits scene. In that Aquaman mid-credits scene, we see Randall Park’s Stephen Shin saving Black Manta. Stephen Shin first appeared in Geoff John’s New-52 Aquaman run and made his cinematic debut thanks to Randall Park’s appearance in Jason Momoa’s first cinematic solo outing as the DC Comics icon. With Aquaman‘s billion dollar success, a sequel is already in the works with David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick penning the script.
Randall Park is one of the few actors who is actually starring in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe at the moment. In the MCU, he plays FBI Agent Jimmy Woo and appeared in Ant-Man and the Wasp and will return for WandaVision. In an interview with Yahoo, Randall Park talked about what it’s like starring in all these comic book movies:
“Yeah it’s surreal because I grew up collecting comic books, I was a big Marvel fan you know, so just to be in that world and to play a character that was actually in the comic books. And then on top of that in the same year to be in Aquaman and to play a character that was in the DC universe, I mean that was pretty surreal.”
Randall Park also spoke specifically about being an actor starring in Marvel and DC films at the same time:
“There’s a few of us, but I don’t know how many were in the same year you know, which was pretty cool, but yeah I’m looking forward to whatever happens with that character because that character is going to come back for sure.”
Given Stephen Shin’s appearance in the mid-credits scene, it’s expected that he will have a bigger role in the Aquaman sequel. The actor went on to tease a deeper storyline for Stephen Shin in Jason Momoa’s Aquaman 2:
“Yeah, I think so but I…for sure, for sure, I can’t tell you anything (laughs).”
