AQUAMAN 2: Patrick Wilson Teases His Return As Ocean Master With New Instagram Photo
With Aquaman 2 set to begin shooting fairly soon, star Patrick Wilson has begun training for his return as the villainous(?) King Orm, aka Ocean Master. Check out the actor's new Instagram post...
Amber Heard recently took to social media to tease her return as Mera for the upcoming Aquaman 2, and costar Patrick Wilson has now followed suit with an Instagram post of his own.
We got confirmation that Wilson was set to reprise the role of King Orm, aka Ocean Master, for James Wan's DC Comics sequel during the DC FanDome event last year, and the Watchmen actor has now begun his training regime in anticipation of production getting underway.
He captioned his photo with the hashtags #guesswhosbackormisback and #brothersdontshakehandsbrothersgottahug. Could this be taken as a hint that Orm and Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) will be on the same side this time?
Ocean Master laid down his trident and allowed himself to be led away by the Atlanteans at the end of the first film, and there's been a lot of speculation that he'll ultimately wind up joining forces with his half-brother to combat a larger threat. Black Manta, perhaps?
We still don't know what to expect from the plot, but it's assumed that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's vengeful David Hyde will be the main villain this time. There's also a good chance that The Trench will feature more prominently, given director James Wan's fondness for the deep-sea terrors.
We recently found out that Game of Thrones alum Pilou Asbaek was in final talks to join the cast, though no details on his role were provided.
Aquaman 2 is set to swim into theaters on December 16, 2022.
