Willem Dafoe will appear in DC’s Justice League movies, but it hasn’t been clear what role the actor will play. A new rumor, however, suggests Dafoe will play an Atlantean in the film.
Sources at Birth.Movies.Death. have no more information regarding exactly which Atlantean the actor might be taking on, but it’s previously been reported that Dafoe’s character will be a “good guy” in Justice League.
Atlanteans—for those unfamiliar—are not Mermen, but the native species of the continent of Atlantis. A.k.a., Aquaman’s home town.
