5 Actors Who Could Play Black Manta In ‘Aquaman’

Idris Elba

5. Idris Elba

Elba is at number 5 because he’s a long shot. The chances of DC getting him are slim to none. He has a contract with Marvel that probably won’t be finished until after Aquaman hits theaters. But, if the chances weren’t slim, Elba would be my number one choice. His villain roles are always intimidating and frightening and I believe it’s time he’s had a chance to shine in a superhero film. Besides, his look just screams Black Manta.
