DC Films has cast Watchmen actor Patrick Wilson as Orm, the evil half-brother of Aquaman, opposite Jason Momoa in the Aquaman movie.
Orm may be better known to DC Comics fans as Ocean Master, the villain who frequently challenges Aquaman for the right to sit on the throne of Atlantis.
Wilson has worked with Aquaman director James Wan on two films in The Conjuring franchise already, with the latest opening earlier this year. He also played Nite Owl in Zack Snyder's adaptation of Watchmen.
Momoa debuted as Aquaman with a cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He will reprise the role for Justice League before taking the lead in Aquaman, where he will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, the Queen of Atlantis.
Aquaman opens in theaters on Oct. 5, 2018.
