Patrick Wilson confirms Ocean Master’s return for Aquaman 2
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Conjuring star Patrick Wilson has confirmed that he is set to reprise his role as Orm/Ocean Master in the Warner Bros. Pictures’ forthcoming Aquaman 2 which is scheduled to hit theaters on December 16, 2022.
“I’m slightly briefed [on Orm-related matters],”Wilson said. “I just throw a little dart here and there. I’ll say, ‘So, what about this?’ and [James Wan will] say, ‘Well, this is what I’m thinking.'”
He also teased about James Wan’s new vision for the highly-anticipated sequel. “I can tell you that even his concepts for Aquaman 2 are pushing it even further. I have a few ideas of where Orm fits in, but I’m not gonna talk about them.”
Aquaman became the biggest success for the DC films, which have a history of faltering at the box office, with the exception of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman. It grossed over $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office earning its spot as the highest grossing DC film of all-time for Warner Bros, and revealed the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry (Momoa) and took him on the journey of his lifetime — one that forced him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman also starred Amber Heard (Justice League, Magic Mike XXL) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man 2) as Vulko, counsel to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Baywatch, The Get Down) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Lion) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna. Also starring is Ludi Lin (Power Rangers) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando, and Temeura Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Green Lantern) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.
