Yahya Abdul-Mateen II recently confirmed that he’ll return as Black Manta to fight Arthur Curry again in Jason Momoa’s Aquaman 2.

While discussing his role on HBO’s Watchmen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II confirmed that Black Manta will return in Jason Momoa’s Aquaman 2, explaining that he’s excited to revisit the character on the big screen again. Fans will remember that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta has a unique vendetta against Jason Momoa’s Aquaman after the DC Comics hero let his father die on the submarine at the beginning of the movie. It seems like Black Manta will be aiming for revenge in Jason Momoa’s Aquaman 2.

When speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II revealed that he’ll return as Black Manta for Aquaman 2 and can’t wait to cause trouble for Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry once again. The Aquaman star also explained that he really wants to explore Black Manta’s personality after Arthur Curry defeated him in the first film. In the film’s post-credits scene, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta was rescued by Dr. Stephen Shin (Randall Park), who agreed to help the villain get his revenge on Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. Take a look at what Yahya Abdul-Mateen II said about Black Manta in Aquaman 2 below.

“We have a date of December 2022. Hopefully, that will hold. Black Manta will be back — I feel confident in saying that. I’m excited to step into that world again and cause some more trouble. I really want to add more personality and more character to David Cane and flesh him out in Aquaman 2 and give him more of a journey.”
