According to an Australian casting call, two actors with rumored roles are now part of the actual cast.
Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison were both said to have been in talks for a role in the film, but this casting call suggests that their additions have been finalized.
As the earlier rumors reported, Kidman will be playing Arthur Curry's mother Atlanna, and Morrison will portray his father, Thomas Curry.
There has been no official word from Warner Bros. or the actors regarding an official casting, but those early rumors make a case for the truth in this casting choice.

Jason Momoa will play Aquaman. Also starring is Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
James Wan will direct Aquaman from a screenplay written by Will Beall, based on a treatment by Wan and DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns. Albert Cho is 1st AD. Producers are Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, Peter Safran, Deborah Snyder, and Zack Snyder. Rob Cowan will serve as executive producer.
Aquaman is scheduled to hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
