There’s already a lot of hype among fans for DC’s upcoming underwater superhero film Aquaman. The first Aquaman trailer released last month at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 gave audiences a glimpse of almost all the major characters from the film including Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), Mera (Amber Heard), Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), Thomas Curry (Temuera Morrison), King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren), Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) as well as Arthur’s half-brother Ocean master Orm who he will challenge for the throne of Atlantis.
During a recent interview with Yahoo!, Aquaman director James Wan gave some insight about the film’s main antagonist Orm, who is played by Patrick Wilson, and explained the reason of him being hostile to the other inhabitants of the planet in the upcoming movie.
“It’s so rooted in the environment and that’s what Orm hates,” Wan said to Yahoo! “He hates how we treat one another, treat the planet with so little regard. And the idea here is that all the crap from the surface world literally rolls down to him and his people. And he’s just sick of it.”
According to the comic book storyline, Orm, who is the current king of Atlantis, wants to rage a war against the surface dwellers, as he along with other Atlanteans blames them for ruining and polluting the Seven Seas. The film will eventually see the half-human, half-Atlantean DC superhero trying to stop Orm from going to war against the surface world.
Notably, in the Aquaman trailer, Orm can be seen charging into battle riding a large marine reptile. While many believed that the reptile is a Mosasaur, director James Wan took to Twitter to confirm that the creature is a Tylosaur.

It recently came to light that DC and Harper Collins have collaborated together to release an Aquaman prequel novel titled Aquaman: Undertow which will focus on the adventures of a thirteen-year-old Arthur Curry as well as a pictorial guide titled Aquaman: Arthur’s Guide to Atlantis that will be featuring everything about the mythical city of Atlantis.
Aquaman will debut in theaters on December 21, 2018.
Can see Orm becoming the Killmonger of #Aquaman.
