Patrick Wilson Talks About Why He Thinks Aquaman Will Appeal


Patrick Wilson was recently announced as antagonist Ocean Master in 2018's Aquaman. He will once again be teaming up with director James Wan, this time to bring Aquaman's half brother to life.

Speaking on ABC Radio, Wilson gave his two cents on why he thinks Aquaman will rise above other Superhero movies, stating that he is a mostly misunderstood or underexposed hero. He said:

I think the lure of Aquaman (is) because he hasn't been overexposed on screen. And I don't know Jason. I can't wait to meet him. I was a huge fan even from the first episode of Game of Thrones, so I'm in, I'm in with him, and he's gonna be fantastic.

For me, Aquaman's appeal on screen is how do you translate a character that is pretty ridiculous, into a character we care about? However, I also seem to remember similar conversations surrounding Thor too, before he hit the big screen. For the most part, that worked out.
