Booked And Busy: Djimon Hounsou Has Roles In DC's 'Aquaman,' DC's 'Shazam!' And Marvel's 'Captain Marvel'

Ahead of Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has released a first look image from Aquaman featuring Djimon Hounsou as the Fisherman King.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the image is from a scene when King Orm (Patrick Wilson) goes to the Fisherman King to ask for his help in declaring war against the surface dwellers (i.e., us) who keep polluting the oceans. Alongside Hounsou is Natalia Safran as the Fisherman Queen and Fisherman Princess (Sophia Forrest).

Aquaman-Hounsou

This isn’t the only role Hounsou will play in Aquaman. He will also star in another DC film, Shazam!, as The Wizard.

On top of that, he’ll reprise his MCU role as Kree mercenary Korath the Pursuer in Captain Marvel. In short, we’ll be seeing a lot of Hounsou in the months to come, and that’s always a good thing.
