Patrick Wilson Cast as Ocean Master in Aquaman

Shares

Casting for Aquaman is fully underway as Deadline is reporting that Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, The Conjuring) has been cast as Orm, almost known as Ocean Master, the half-brother of Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) and one of his more well-known villains.

The casting has since been confirmed by Patrick Wilson himself, and Aquaman director James Wan.

Ocean Master first appeared in Aquaman #29 in September of 1966 and was created by Writer Bob Haney and Artist Nick Cardy and has a rivalry with Arthur Curry. In the New 52 he’s seen as King of Atlantis when Arthur Curry first appears in Atlantis, Vulko accuses him of killing the previous King, setting up his villainous ways.

It’s unknown if Ocean Master will be the main villain, but considering James Wan came on board due to his love for the New 52 run of the character it is more than likely he will be the main villain.

Wilson also played Daniel Dreilberg/Nite Owl 2 in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. Patrick Wilson is also best known for his roles in James Wan’s The Conjuring and Insidious films, as well as having a cameo role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as  the voice of the President of the United States.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

      Do you think it be strange as he was voice of POTUS in BvS. I guess his voice is different or he secret disguise himself as the president to attack his brother kingdom.

        I don’t think is a problem. In BvS was just a voice, in Aquaman will appear as a main character. Most of the people won’t recognize that was the same actor who voiced the President.
