AQUAMAN 2 Star Patrick Wilson Teases "Bigger, Better & Broader" Sequel; Shares Production Update

With Aquaman 2 set to begin shooting soon, star Patrick Wilson has teased his return as the villainous(?) King Orm, aka Ocean Master, while praising director James Wan's "super fun" sequel...

We got confirmation that Patrick Wilson was set to reprise the role of King Orm, aka Ocean Master, for James Wan's Aquaman sequel during the DC FanDome event last year, and the Watchmen actor recently revealed that he'd begun his training regime in anticipation of production getting underway.

Now, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It star has shared a filming update while also teasing Wan's "super fun" plans for the follow-up.

"With James, when he comes back for a sequel, it becomes bigger and better and broader and more funny, more action, more character work," Wilson tells ET Online, adding that he's now in his "eighth week of training," and that production should be ready to commence in "a couple of months."

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.

Jason Momoa and Amber Heard will reprise their respective roles as Arthur Curry and Mera, and 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
