Patrick Wilson to Play Villain Ocean Master in ‘Aquaman’

Posted: December 13, 2016 in Comic Book News

Yesterday, Deadline revealed that actor Patrick Wilson will be playing the character Orm Marius, a villain also known as Ocean Master, in DC’s upcoming film Aquaman. Director James Wan later took to Twitter and confirmed the casting.

In the New 52 series, Ocean Master is the child of Aquaman’s mother, Atlanna, and an Atlantean man, driving him to be a rival of Aquaman’s for the throne of Atlantis. He regularly uses piracy, terrorism, and technology/magical powers in orders to help him reach his of usurping the throne from his brother.

With the announcement of Ocean Master’s casting, it seems as if the film will be pushing the originally announced villain, Black Manta, to a sequel film, instead using Aquaman’s first solo outing to focus on brothers battling for control of their undersea kingdom. On top of that, Wan also uses the hashtag “#KingOrm” in his tweet, suggesting that Aquaman won’t actually be the king of Atlantis by the time his movie rolls into theaters. Interesting…

Aquaman will arrive in theaters on October 5, 2018.
