It was already evident that Ludi Lin was going to be a rising force in Hollywood thanks to his role as the Black Ranger in March's Power Rangers, and now the Chinese-Canadian actor just scored another major gig. He will now star in DC's upcoming Aquaman movie, Deadline reports.

Lin is set to portray Murk, known in the DCEU as the leader of the Men-of-War—a.k.a. the front-line army of Atlantis—who is also Aquaman's (played by Jason Momoa) close ally. Along with Lin and Momoa, Amber Heard, Wilem Dafoe, Yahya Adbul-Mateen II (The Get Down), Patrick Wilson and Nicole Kidman will star in DC's latest film.

The Aquaman spinoff, whose release date was pushed back to fit Marvel's Venom Oct. 5, 2018 premiere, will now hit theaters on Dec. 21, 2018. But before then, Momoa will play the superhero in Justice League, which arrives on Nov. 17, 2017. As for Power Rangers? It recently scored six more movies in the franchise with the sequel expected to start filming soon. Next up, read our spotlight on Ludi Lin as part of Fuse's Future Asian & Pacific History Month
