'Aquaman' Has Found Its Villain, And He Has a Superhero Movie Past
Aquaman has found its villain, and it's someone who's previously starred in DC superhero movie directed by Zack Snyder.

Patrick Wilson is set to portray big baddie Ocean Master, AKA Orm. The evil half-brother of Aquaman, he could fill a Loki-type role in the DCEU given his complicated relationship with Jason Momoa's titular hero. He shares many of the same powers as his brother, and not surprisingly believes that he should be the ruler of Atlantis; a desire that often causes him to lash out, using the ocean as his weapon (he has mastery over the ocean, in case you couldn't tell by his name).

Wilson of course previously appeared in a DC film as Night Owl II in 2009's Watchmen. The divisive film has its fans and its haters, but most seem to agree that Wilson's down-to-Earth performance as the overweight and impotent hero was a bright spot. Now it looks like he'll get yet another opportunity to ingratiate himself to DC fans when Aquaman arrives in theaters on July 27, 2018.
