Earlier this week the news broke that Watchmen and The Conjuring 2 star Patrick Wilson has joined the cast of Aquaman. Wilson will portray the heroes half-brother and nemesis Orm. While talking to ABC Radio’s GMA Wilson explained why he decided to join James Wan and Jason Momoa on the project.
“What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling, I guess, for Aquaman,” Wilson said, “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 (Momoa) — 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,” Wilson added.
Patrick Wilson and Aquaman star Jason Momoa will head to Australia for production soon. The film will shoot at Roadshow Studios in Queensland, using one of the largest water tanks available.
