Black Manta To Be Villain For Aquaman Film

Umberto Gonzalez of TheWrap has broken a new scoop this time for DC Films' upcoming sea-adventure Aquaman. He reports that Black Manta will be the antagonist for the film.

For the uninitiated Black Manta was a mercenary and treasure hunter who worked alongside his father. He was hired by Stephen Shin to collect the blood of Arthur Curry in an effort to prove that he was actually an Atlantean. Curry was defended by his father, Thomas Curry, and in the ensuing fight Curry’s father died of a heart attack. Enraged, Curry tracked him down and snuck onto his boat in the middle of the night. He killed Manta’s father, believing him to be Manta himself. Manta abandoned his career as a treasure hunter to seek his revenge against Aquaman.

Jason Momoa plays the titular role, Arthur Curry, he will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko. Aquaman is set for a July 27th, 2018 date directed by James Wan.

Wonder Woman is slated for release on June 2, 2017; followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; an untitled DC Film on October 5, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; an untitled DC film on November 1, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020.
