Aquaman 2: New Look at Black Manta and Aquaman Costumes

Posted 2022/05/25 4 0


New images from this year’s Licensing Expo have revealed new looks at two of the main costumes from the Aquaman sequel.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will not only see the return of Jason Momoa as the titular king of Atlantis, but also, among others, the original movie’s villain, Black Manta. One again played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Black Manta’s role in the sequel to the 2018 hit movie is still mostly a mystery, but thanks to images from this year’s Licensing Expo we have a better look at the new Black Manta costume. While we are still waiting to see any official trailer for the movie, this is a nice look at the Black Manta suit, which was being displayed at the event alongside Jason Momoa’s Aquaman suit.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has recently been called a buddy movie between Momoa’s Atlantean king and Patrick Wilson’s returning Orm, with many others reprising their roles in the sequel including Amber Heard, Dolph Lundgren and of course Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who’s Black Manta costume can be seen below in the images shared on Twitter.

Black Manta Will Be Given More Personality In Aquaman 2

Abdul Mateen II previously discussed his return with, revealing that he was excited to be returning to the role of Black Manta, and that he wanted to make sure that audiences get to know more about the personality of the character and who he is in the film. He said:

“I think in the next Aquaman, I really wanted to put more personality into the character for us to sort of get to know him in some more private moments. Wanted to see [Black Manta] struggle with some things, then to see a bit more of his personality and character. Also, to see what it looks like for him to be in charge of something. So we get to see a little bit more of his leadership style, a little bit more of his personality in this one. And he’s back for more, no doubt, in a big way. Anywhere where he has a device or plot to get back to Aquaman, he’s going to use it. So, he can show up wherever, but when he does I hope that we get to see more of his wit and more of the comedic parts of Black Manta and see more of the things that make him [the Black Manta] that I know and the human that the fans, and the people in this universe, have grown to love over the years.”

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was originally scheduled to premiere this December, but in the recent schedule shuffle the film was replaced by Shazam! Fury of the Gods and will now arrive in March 2023 instead. While there was no specific reasons given for the delay to the movie, rumors have obviously suggested that the ongoing defamation trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp could have had some part in the decision, with Warner Bros. wanting to keep the release as far from the trial and its outcome as possible. Of course, there have also been a number of Covid delays, meaning that more time has been required to complete all of the post production work on the movie as well.
