    He looks utterly fantastic!

    Is it motion capture or prosthetics? Also is he a good or bad guy?

    Absolutely love the design.

    I remember when he had bigger roles. But I guess even small roles in superhero films pay the rent.

    I don’t know to be honest. I think this is a film that’s inspired by game of thrones sort of. There’s no good guys or bad guys, there’s people with different ideologies grinding up against each other and with differering levels of ambition

    I'm...

    Pretty sure there's bad guys in Game of Thrones.

    Besides, wiping out the entire surface world is a pretty evil thing to do.

    But on the note of moral complexity, you have a point. Orm very much believes what he's doing is what's right, much like Zod from Man of Steel.

    He cares about helping his people, and to hell with everyone else.

    I wonder if he will be a harsh king that sides with ocean master then eventually turns good?

    Most definitely, just upset there is not one piece of merchandise shown at comic-con. Very disappointed.

    So he’s in Aquaman. The wizard in Shazam. And reprising his role as Korath in Captain Marvel.

    Always the bridesmaid. Never the bride.

    Guess not. :(

    Maybe they’ll do something after the film comes out if the character is popular.

    I like his design and I'm very happy to see various types of Atlanteans, particularly this kind of mer-people.

    However, I am not a fan of the name: The Fisherman King.

    Is Fisherman the name of his people; the Fishermen from Fisherland?
    Is he so good at fishing he was named the Fisherman King?
    Are these the only Atlanteans who fish, if so what does everyone else eat?

    Why not call him The Fisher King, in reference to Arthurian Lore?

    Just a small thing, but it bugs me.
