HyperFocal: 0

Variety have confirmed that Patrick Wilson’s Ocean Master won’t be the only adversary that the King of Atlantis will be facing in his 2018 solo movie, with Black Manta being added to the cast.

Manta will be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, probably best known for his role as Cadillac on the Netflix series “The Get Down”.

Abdul-Mateen was also in the running to play the Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars Han Solo spinoff movie, and allegedly beat out competition from Moonlight’s Trevante Rhodes and 24: Legacy’s Corey Hawkins for the role.

Starring Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm) and Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), Aquaman will hit cinemas on October 5th, 2018.
