Deadline is reporting that Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Insidious) has ben cast as ORM in DC’s 2018 Aquaman film. Orm Marius is the half-brother of ‘Aquaman’ who is being portrayed in the DC Cinematic Universe by Jason Momoa. In the comics, Orm, after learning that his father was an Atlantean wizard names Atlan, desired the throne of Atlantis for himself.
Keep in mind that this is not officially confirmed and will not be until stated by Warner Brothers, Aquaman director James Wan, Patrick Wilson himself or anyone else involved in the Aquaman movie. If this does turn out to be true, we could potentially see a tease for the character in an end credit scene in Justice League which hits theatres at the end of next year.
Between Justice League and Aquaman is reportedly Ben Affleck’s solo ‘Batman’ movie which begins filming in the spring of 2018!
Aquaman hits theatres on October 5th 2018!
