Patrick Wilson: King Orm
Orm : People of Atlantis, hear me! My brother has come from the surface... to challenge me for the throne! Let us settle this in the ancient way: by bloodshed do the gods make known their will!
Orm : Down here, we have a legend about the Karathen, an ancient sea monster so powerful that even King Atlan himself couldn't contain it. So he imprisoned it in the depths of the ocean. In that abyss, the creature bides its time, waiting to rise again. Atlantis has been lying in wait, and now the beast has awakened.
Arthur Curry : You know, there was a time when I wanted to meet you one day, get to know my little brother, let him know that he wasn't alone, and we could hang out together. If only I'd know what a dick you'd turn out to be.
Orm : You were the reason our mother was executed. And I've hated you for it ever since. But I do not want to kill you, Arthur. I am going to give you one chance. Go home. Do not ever come back to Atlantis. You are not going to win this. A war is coming to the surface whether you like or not. And I am bringing the wrath of the Seven Seas with me.
Arthur Curry : You know I can't let that happen.
Orm : I know.
[Orm and Arthur tap their tridents together, to begin their duel]
Orm : You wield our mother's trident. Powerful, but flawed. Like her. I wield my father's, and it has never known defeat!
[Orm defeats Arthur]
Orm : I am the one true king!
Orm : Today we unite our kingdoms. Tomorrow we scorch the surface! RISE, ATLANTIS!
Orm : The time has come for Atlantis to rise again.
Orm : Vulko, my trusted vizier, you have stood by the throne since my father sat upon it. Have you any advice for me, as this war begins?
Nuidis Vulko : I have already given it, my king. But I will stand by your decision, as always.
Orm : My decision. To protect it... while you betray it? You think I do not know of your treachery, that you were ever loyal to my mother's bastard son, that you have spent years training him to take the throne from me. Do not deny it!
[guards surround Vulko]
Nuidis Vulko : I do not.
Orm : Why? I am pure of blood! I have dedicated my entire life to Atlantis! He wanted nothing to do with it! You swore to serve the throne!
Nuidis Vulko : I do serve it! Arthur may only be half-Atlantean, but he's already twice the king you'll ever be!
Orm : [to guards] Take him. But make sure he gets a view.
