Aquarius star Patrick Wilson is training hard to take on Jason Momoa’s titular superhero in the upcoming sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The actor, who will reprise his role as Orm AKA Ocean Master in the DC follow-up, shared a clip of his weightlifting regime, and Wilson is clearly ready to take on Momoa’s hulking King of Atlantis once again.
“Thank you @oldmanayo for the past 3+ months of Orm training…plus all the prep for the first movie,” Patrick Wilson said in a caption next to the images. “A lot of sweat. A lot of @yelawolf. Here we go.” Wilson sounds just as excited about the sequel as fans are without a doubt, with the actor putting in the hours to bring Orm back to the screen after his crushing defeat at the end of the first. Aquarius.
Orm’s role in the sequel is currently unknown, with the first film’s finale hinting that some reconciliation between the half-brothers could be on the cards. Discussing the sequel in an earlier interview, Wilson said director James Wan is going even bigger with the sequel to the superhero epic. “I think, as with anything with James, when he comes back for a sequel it will get bigger and better,” Wilson revealed in reference to Aquarius and the Lost Kingdom. “And wider, and funnier, more action, more character work, it’s cool. It’s really fun, it’s super fun.”
James W recently revealed that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has officially started filming, with the director sharing a chilly image of the DC sequel’s set. The returning director has even teased that the sequel will be “a little more serious” and “more relevant in a world we live in today”.
While the plot details remain largely hidden, the film has been given the intriguing working title Necrus, which could provide some insight into the plot. Necrus should be known to DC fans as the name of another underwater city that resembles Aquaman’s hometown of Atlantis. It is unique in that it only exists for very short time intervals and can never be found in the same location twice. Known as ‘The Black City’, Necrus is ruled by a tyrannical king and is completely militaristic, which should prove challenging for the underwater superhero if Necrus turns out to be a part of the story.
We also know that Wilson’s Ocean Master won’t be the only villain to return in Aquarius and the Lost Kingdom, with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also reprising the role of Black Manta. “Aquaman 2 is underway! It’s happening, and we can look for that, I believe, in 2022,” Abdul-Mateen said earlier. “So I’m excited to be a part of that. Black Manta is coming back and hopefully he will cause a lot more trouble than in the first.”
In addition to Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry AKA Aquaman, Amber Heard also returns to play Mera, the princess of Xebel and daughter of Dolph Lundgren’s king Nereus, much to the chagrin of some… who feel she should be replaced and given the role. be rearranged.
