Deadline is reporting that Game of Thrones alum Pilou Asbaek is joining James Wan’s Aquaman 2. Sources close to the industry trade note that Asbaek will star opposite Jason Mamoa in the sequel to the 2018 DC Extended Universe blockbuster.
Pilou Asbaek is best known for his work on Game of Thrones, starring as the ultra villainous Euron Greyjoy. Asbaek portrayed Euron for three seasons, playing against some of the series most memorable characters. His next role is starring alongside Sylvester Stallone in MGM’s Samaritan.
Little is known about Aquaman 2 as details are being kept under wraps.. There’s also no report on who Asbaek will be playing, but many fans hope he’ll take on another villain role. Could he take on the part of Fisherman or Charybdis, the villain known for feeding Aquaman’s hand to piranhas?
2018’s Aquaman was met with a lukewarm reception from critics but went on to gross more than $1.14 billion at the box office. Jason Mamoa was last seen playing the Arthur Curry character this year in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
