Is Black Manta only going to be in Aquaman? Will he join the Legion of Doom?
DC Comics only live-action film this year is Aquaman, and it will feature two classic villains from his roster, Ocean Master, and Black Manta. However, Ocean Master is the focus of the film. However, according the producer of the film, Peter Safran, Manta will be ever present in the future of the Worlds of DC universe.
“We certainly have every intention that Manta plays a very large role in the DC universe,” explained Safran in an interview with Cinema Blend. “We give him his origin story in this movie. We do show how Manta, that we see in the comic books, became that character. And we’re so fortunate to have this guy, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, to play him.”
The obvious answer to “what’s next?” for his is Justice League 2, where he’s likely to be a part of the Legion of Doom. However, given the state of DC following the first JL film, he could be the focus of Aquaman 2 should that get greenlit. Either way, looks like Black Manta is here to stay.The thread view count is
