Patrick Wilson Talks Joining James Wan’s ‘Aquaman’ As Orm

Recently, Patrick Wilson was cast as Orm, the evil half-brother of Aquaman in the 2018 DC Extended Universe Film.

The actor talked with GMA After Hours about why he joined the project, working with James Wan, and looking forward to meeting Jason Momoa. (via Batman News)

“What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling, I guess, for Aquaman.  Until now. And for me, of course, I’m completely biased with James Wan, who I’ve done four films with — knowing that he’s at the helm and knowing what he … can do and what he will do, I’ll do anything with him.


I think the lure of Aquaman [is] because he hasn’t been overexposed on screen. And I don’t know Jason (Momoa) — I can’t wait to meet him. I was a huge fan even from the first episode of Game of Thrones, so I’m in — I’m in with him, and he’s gonna be fantastic.”

Aquaman heads to Australia to film this week, where 1,000 jobs will be created and $111 million will be spent.

Aquaman hits theaters on October 5, 2018.
