9. Willem Dafoe is Vulko
Superhero movie fans were doing back flips when it was announced that Willem Dafoe had been cast in Justice League. However, it wasn’t known who the actor, formerly The Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, would be playing.
It turns out that Dafoe will be appearing as Vulco, the Atlantean mentor of Aquaman. This is quite surprising as many were expecting him to play a villainous role, but it looks like he will be on the side of the angels (or, at least, the fish), after all. It seems likely that he will also feature in the Aquaman solo movie, coming in 2018.
Likewise, it was confirmed that, despite the issues surrounding her divorce from Johnny Depp, Amber Heard will still appear in JL as Aquaman’s wife, Mera.
