It was abound to happen. Patrick Wilson has officially joined the DCEU, and he will be playing the heroe’s half-brother Orm.
In the comics, Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, and Orm have a relationship that mirrors that of Thor and Loki in the MCU, with Orm lusting over the throne of Atlantis.
Patrick Wilson already has a history with Aquaman director James Wan, having starred on The Conjuring and the Insidious films which Wan handled. Wilson has already appeared in the DCEU with a voice cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as the voice of the President of the United States.
I’m very excited to Wilson on this new role, And I’m looking forward to see how they try to distance themselves from the Thor-Loki relationship audiences are already so familiar with in the MCU.
Aquaman is coming to theaters on October 5, 2018 directed by James Wan and stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson.
