Given the enormous box office success of Aquaman, it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. has already set a December 2022 release date for a sequel to the highest-grossing DC movie of all time.
During an interview with Syfy Wire, Patrick Wilson was asked about the future of his character Orm, and while he’s yet to hear whether he’ll be involved in Aquaman 2, the actor has expressed his excitement over potentially getting to reprise the role – although he doesn’t believe we’ll see Ocean Master as the main villain in any more films.
“You can’t kill him. He’s too important to [Arthur’s] journey,” said Wilson. “He’s a foil to [Aquaman]. He’s not gonna be a main villain in another movie. I don’t think Orm ends up in Belle Reve like he does in the New 52. I assume they’re gonna keep him in some kind of jail below the surface… If [director James Wan] wants me back, I’m certainly happy to come back.”
