Actor Willem Dafoe was originally supposed to make his debut as Nuidis Vulko in 2017's Justice League. However, the character didn't make it into the final cut, as Warner Bros. reportedly mandated that the film have a two-hour runtime. A new piece of concept art gives a look at what Vulko could have looked like had he appeared in Justice League.
The images, which come from the ArtStation account of concept artist Constantine Sekeris, shows Vulko outfitted in the costume he would have worn in Justice League. The fact that the face used in the model bears pretty much no resemblance to Dafoe seems to indicate that this design was indeed from very early in the production process.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna. The film is now in theaters nationwide.
