Director James Wan‘s Aquaman looks to be shaping up as some important casting news hits the Internet. Joining opposite Jason Momoa as (one of?) the film’s antagonist(s) is Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Hard Candy) who will play Ocean Master, the half-brother of Aquaman. While the original Ocean Master along with Aquaman might have been the inside joke of the Justice League, the post 52 Aquaman and Ocean Master are powers to be reckoned with.
The Marvel equivalent is Thor and Loki so we should expect some similarities between the big screen versions. There’s not much known about the script so far, but one would expect some Game of Thrones type political backstabbing going on between the two brothers as one sits on the throne the other covets.
As more Aquaman news comes in, we’ll let you know about it here. There is still almost two years to go until the October 5th, 2018 release date.
