Warner Bros. has made a major casting addition to Aquaman today as Patrick Wilson is set to take on the role of Ocean Master. The Fargo and Watchmen star worked with director James Wan on both of The Conjuring movies, so the fact that they’re reteaming for this movieĀ is very exciting. Wilson joins Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Amber Heard as Mera.

For those of you unfamiliar with the comic books, Orm is Arthur Curry’s half-brother. They’ve fought side by side on a few occasions, but Ocean Master spends most of his time plotting against Aquaman because he believes that the throne of Atlantis rightfully belongs to him.

Wilson very nearly starred in Marvel’s Ant-Man a few years back, but this will be by far his biggest superhero movie role to date. As Nite-Owl in Watchmen, the actor landed on the radar of many fans and he’s since been suggested for a long list of characters. Orm is an inspired choice though, and it’s going to be a lot of fun seeing what he brings to the table.

With Aquaman (which recently got a new release date) set to begin shooting next year, more casting information will no doubt be revealed soon, so stay tuned for further updates.
