The unstoppable tidal waves of photos from director James Wan’s Aquaman continues with the fist images of Patrick Wilson’s character King Orm and Willem Dafoe’s Vulko surfacing online.
They are revealed in Entertainment Weekly’s coverage of the Upcoming DCEU movie, also giving us the first look of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, with his signature helmet on and Queen Atlanna, Aquaman’s mother, which is being portrayed by Nicole Kidman.
Here’s the first look:

Dafoe’s character Nuidis Vulko was originally intended to debut in the last year’s Justice League, but like many other scenes, that too was chopped out of the film for unknown reasons.
“The water world my movie takes place in is so separate and so far apart from previous DC movies it’s like I’m making my own sci-fi fantasy film,”
James Wan to Ew.
“This is a whole new underwater world nobody has seen before in live action.”
Though we still know a little about the movie, what we do know about the film comes from the director himself. Wan characterises the movie as “a classic story of sibling rivalry” which will involve Jason Momoa’s Aquaman/Arthur Curry and his half-brother Orm played by Patrick Wilson.
