MOVIE RUMORS: Has the Villain of Aquaman Been Revealed?

December 2nd, 2015 by Jake Tanner Comments



Joblo has posted numerous rumors that classic Aqua-villain Black Manta won’t be the villain in the King of Atlantis’s first film. That role will go to Aquaman’s half-brother, Ocean Master, who will battle with Arthur for the Throne of Atlantis. They are reportedly looking for a non-white actor to fill the role.

They also talk about Arthur’s wife, Mera, who is rumored to first appear in the first installment of the Justice League. They go on to describe her relationship to Aquaman as, “a force of nature whose relationship with Aquaman is closer to that between Max and Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Are you guys excited for this news? Are you looking forward to Aquaman? Let me know in the comments!

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
