Patrick Wilson is the most recent actor to be bought into the DC Extended Universe, who has worked with James Wan four times already, so it was a no brainer when he was approached to play the role of Orm/Ocean Master in Aquaman.
In a recent interview with WBT Radio, Wilson discussed what bought him onto the film and overall DC Extended Universe.
“What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling, I guess, for Aquaman,” Wilson tells Lopez, “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 — 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.”
What’s really exciting to hear is how Patrick Wilson is discussing how the technology has not been really there to back up the type of storytelling this film is going to have until now and that James Wan has a specific vision he has shared with Wilson that got him excited.
The report also mentions that he will begin working on the film in 6 months and has a costume fitting next week.
