Patrick Wilson teased his upcoming film Aquaman 2 will be even more epic in scale than the first.
Aquaman 2 is one of four major projects coming from DC Films set to hit theaters in 2022. The highly-anticipated sequel to the 2018 blockbuster sees the return of James Wan to the director’s chair, and according to Orm/Ocean Master actor Patrick Wilson, it looks like the highly-anticipated film will further broaden the scope of the undersea world of Atlantis.
While promoting his new film The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Patrick Wilson touched upon what fans should expect from Aquaman 2, while also giving a brief update on production. The actor told ET Online that he’s on his eighth week of training for his role as Orm, and hinted at what James Wan has in store:
“With James, when he comes back for a sequel, it becomes bigger and better and broader and more funny, more action, more character work… In about a month or so, they start… and then I go and in a couple of months we start.”
Aquaman 2 will be the sixth actor/director collaboration between Patrick Wilson and James Wan, and interestingly enough, their third sequel. Before Aquaman, the two previously worked together on Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2, The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2.

The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
