Recently came the news that “Watchmen” and “Fargo” star Patrick Wilson has been cast as the villain Ocean Master in director James Wan’s upcoming “Aquaman” movie.
Wilson, who has worked with Wan several times, has now spoken about his involvement and his excitement to reunite with Wan and play the antagonist to Jason Momoa’s King of Atlantis. He tells WBT :
“What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling, I guess, for Aquaman… until now. And for me, of course, I’m completely biased with James Wan, who I’ve done four films with — knowing that he’s at the helm and knowing what he … can do and what he will do, I’ll do anything with him.
I think the lure of Aquaman [is] because he hasn’t been overexposed on screen, and I don’t know Jason — I can’t wait to meet him. I was a huge fan even from the first episode of Game of Thrones, so I’m in — I’m in with him, and he’s gonna be fantastic.”
Production on “Aquaman” gets underway in Australia and China next year ahead of an October 2018 release.
