Patrick Wilson recently talked about Orm’s wild look in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom wrapped filming recently with James Wan dropping a behind-the-scenes photo featuring Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson. Wan has also shared other looks at the upcoming Aquaman sequel throughout production, including Orm’s new look. Wilson recently spoke to ComicBook.com about Orm’s transformation in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
“Yeah, that was my ‘Castaway Does Crossfit’ look. What can I say? Well, that’s certainly Orm who’s been… You saw him be taken away, so clearly, he did not have a razor wherever he went.”
Patrick Wilson went on to say how much fun it was to shoot Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and touched on how James Wan is trying to top the epic first film:
“No, it’s fun. The movie’s gonna be a blast. We had such a great time shooting it, I will absolutely say that. And the tone, I think he took the tone in those moments in the first one that we enjoyed, and that kind of went beyond the comic book world in that they were much more really appealing to a wider audience, and we embraced that. I think we embraced the tone much more in this movie, we established what James established, what he wanted to do with the first one, it was clearly successful, and it’s like, ‘Okay, so now let’s just push it.’ So every little fun moment, every goofy moment, every heartfelt moment, every action moment, some of the set pieces are unbelievable, the stunts were crazy, fighting sequences are crazy, just awesome.”
Here is the synopsis for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
When an ancient power is unleashed, Aquaman must forge an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally to protect Atlantis, and the world, from irreversible devastation.
