Patrick Wilson Is The Only Member of The 'Aquaman' Cast Who Knew Who Aquaman Was

Patrick Wilson was the only member of the ‘Aquaman’ cast who had been a fan of the superhero growing up.

“I had a figure, about a six inch or eight inch, whatever we had as kids,” Wilson said of the action figure he played with as a child.

Actor Michael Beach who plays Manta’s Father, Jesse admits he didn’t know anything about the fabled comic book hero until his son gave him a lesson.
