‘Aquaman’ Finds Its Black Manta

I was kind of hoping Black Manta would be played by Michael Jai White as he was totally up for role but it isn’t meant to be as the villain will instead be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who starred in Netflix’s Baz Luhrmann show The Get Down.

According to THR “The actor has nabbed the part of Black Manta, one of the DC Comics villains. Director James Wan and the studio have been meeting with numerous actors for the part over the past two weeks, settling on Abdul-Mateen over the weekend. The official offer went out on Monday and the parties are now in talks.

If a deal is made, Abdul-Mateen will suit up as Manta, who first appeared in a DC comic in 1967 and stood out due to his unique battle-costume, trident and deadly schemes.”

Black Manta is also a part of the newer Suicide Squad comics and has rapidly become one of my favourite characters. Apparently, Nicole Kidman has also been cast as Aquaman’s mother Atlanna.

We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
