James Wan Debunks Black Manta Casting

The Daily Telegraph ran a story recently that actor Michael K. Williams was cast in the role of Black Manta in Aquaman and many news sites took this as a confirmation. We decided to hold on reporting on it until it was actually confirmed or denied by those involved with the film.

Director James Wan, has gone to twitter to deny the story that Michael K. Williams has been cast as Black Manta. Wan wasn’t clear if Williams just wasn’t cast as Black Manta and will be in the film or if he is just not in the film at all, but its safe to say he is not playing Black Manta.

Wan than went ahead and commented as to why he is unable to diffuse all the rumors that keep coming from out of nowhere.

And when a fan responded to his comment by asking him to cast the actor in the role that he is a great actor, Wan agreed that Williams is a great actor.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
