Deadline was first to report that Patrick Wilson has joined James Wan’s Aquaman as Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother.
Wilson’s casting is no surprise here as he has worked on multiple films with Wan, most known being The Conjuring franchise. He’s also not unfamiliar with the comic book world as he played Nite Owl in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and also provided the voice of POTUS in Batman v Superman.
Wilson joins already cast Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, and Willem Dafoe who play Aquaman/Arthur Curry, Mera, and Vulko. The Aquaman solo film has an official release date of October 5, 2018.
