‘Aquaman’ exclusive: First look at Black Manta

‘Aquaman’ exclusive: First look at Black Manta

Nicole Kidman is featured in an image where "Queen Atlanna protects a young Arthur Curry".

Fans have already seen Momoa and Heard in costume and in action across trailers and promo images but we have never seem Kidman.

It appears that the DCEU will be going for some comic book accuracy in the design of Black Manta's helmet in Aquaman.

In the gallery below, we get cool new looks at Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Amber Heard as Mera.

Scottish actor Graham McTavish also reportedly has a role in the upcoming movie, though it's now unknown what character he'll be playing. Other actors set to appear include Star Wars actor Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Ludi Lin as Murk.

"Aquaman" arrives in December 2018.

Although few concrete plot details have been revealed about Aquaman, it's been characterized by Wan as "a classic story of sibling rivalry", involving Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry and his half-brother Orm. Entertainment Weekly reports that he is a mercenary and a pirate by the name of David Kane, and he will be played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II who you may recognize from The Greatest Showman.

"He's part mercenary but full-time pirate who in his suit will look like some insane alien from outer space", states Wan about the villain.

"He's part mercenary but full-time pirate who in his suit will look like some insane alien from outer space", director James Wan said, clarifying that Black Manta is the secondary antagonist after Aquaman's half-brother King Orm (Patrick Wilson).

In the comics, David Kane is known as David Hyde, and he is one of the biggest villains in the Aquaman universe, which means that the upcoming movie may be setting the Black Manta character up for more roles in the DCEU, possibly even another Aquaman movie. Clearly Black Manta will feature in the movie in some way, but all the director has said is that he is, "somehow factored into the story".
