Ocean Master Patrick Wilson Aquaman

Even since AQUAMAN was first announced with James Wan taking the helm, fans have been wondering which villain would be facing off against The King of the Seven Seas. Although many expected Black Manta to take on that role, today's casting announcement reveals that a very different baddie will be taking center stage. Deadline reports that Patrick Wilson (THE CONJURING) will be joining the cast as Orm Marius a.k.a. Ocean Master.

If this news feels somewhat familiar to you, it may be because our own Editor-in-Chief Paul Shirey reported that Ocean Master would likely be AQUAMAN's villain over a year ago. Your cookies are in the mail, Paul. As Patrick Wilson has appeared in four of James Wan's movies to date, I would have been somewhat surprised if Wan didn't carve out a spot for Wilson in AQUAMAN as well. For those of you who need a quick refresher on the Ocean Master, such as myself, here's what he's all about. Although his origin has shifted several times over the decades, the nefarious Orm frequently finds himself squaring off against Arthur Curry, his half-brother, for the throne of Atlantis. Wielding a trident which gives him the ability to control storms, Orm has has gone toe-to-toe with Aquaman on many occasions. Along with Patrick Wilson, AQUAMAN will also star Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and is set for a October 5, 2018 release.

How do you feel about Ocean Master serving as the AQUAMAN villain and, more importantly, how do you feel about Patrick Wilson filling the role?

Patrick Wilson is starting to become the actor who can just perform any kind of role. He was pretty good in Bone Tomahawk too.

Patrick Wilson is that guy everyone loves. He treads on the line of superstardom, and b-movie obscurity, but he always manages to stay relevant. This guy and Aaron Eckhart should be friends.

Even though he was high on my list to be cast as DC's next Green Lantern, I couldn't be any happier with this decision. He's a great underrated actor and am glad to see him joining the DCEU in a vital role and to also see Wilson and Wan partnering up again for a fifth time.

He's in a lot of mediocre or even outright bad films but he always turns in a game performance regardless. I'm not sure whether Aquaman's going to be any good, but anything that helps Wilson's star shine a little better is fine by me.

Great news!

Wilson is a very underrated actor. I am glad to see him get in a high profile role like this. Impressed the hell out of me in Hard Candy.

Wilson is a solid actor and handled playing Night Owl in Watchmen quite well so this seems like a good choice.
