As we perviously reported, Entertainment Weekly got the exclusive first look at James Wan’s Aquaman, as two feature covers would be seen on newsstand starting today. One of the many exclusives is the first look at Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta or at least as the alter ego David Hyde, looking at the helmet that makes him the Black Manta.
Director James Wan in the interview for the magazine, goes on to explain that Black Manta will not be the main antagonist in the movie for Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
“He’s part mercenary but full-time pirate who in his suit will look like some crazy alien from outer space,” director James Wan teases. However, he won’t be Aquaman’s main antagonist; that honour goes to Patrick Wilson’s King Orm. “Black Manta is a really interesting character who is somehow factored into this story but our main story is about Jason and Patrick,” the filmmaker teases.
Aquaman releases in theaters on December 21st.
