According to an exclusive report by Deadline, Patrick Wilson has signed on to Warner Bros. to play the Orm the Ocean Master, the super-villain half brother of Aquaman.
This character is mostly comparable to that of Thor’s brother, Loki, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s a rival for the throne of Atlantis – like Loki and Asgard – and he causes a lot of trouble when things don’t go his way – you’ve guessed it, like Loki.
Patrick Wilson joins Jason Momoa as Aquaman himself, Amber Heard as Queen Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko. You can catch Aquaman in action in next year’s Justice League movie before his solo outing.
Aquaman surfs into cinemas on October 5, 2018.
