While the whole world is discussing the successes and failures of the "Suicide Squad", the department responsible for building the cinematic universe DC is not idle. This time the news comes from the camp of the fantastic action movie " Aquaman ". The portal The Wrap , without naming any sources, reports that the opponent of the King of the Seven Seas in his solo film will be Black Manta - one of the most dangerous and long-standing enemies of the superhero.|
Black Manta first appeared in DC comics in 1967. His origins and history have changed several times, but, according to the latest version, he is a mercenary and an excellent fighter without any superpowers. The endless whirlpool of mutual revenge began with the death of Aquaman's father during the first battle with Black Manta . After The Dweller of the Deep inadvertently killed the father of Black Manta . So the characters became blood enemies.
Recall that information about the main antagonist of the picture was received earlier: it was assumed that it would be Orm Curry , nicknamed Lord of the Ocean . Fans could only build theories, guided by their own reasoning and knowledge of comics. However, in the biography of Black Manta there is a significant fact that speaks in favor of choosing this particular opponent of Arthur Curry . He spent some time in Belle Reeve prison, where members of the Suicide Squad were held. Therefore, during the production of the blockbuster of the same name, there were rumors that a mercenary might appear in it.
While the failed attempt by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) to recruit Black Mantu from the printed source has been left behind the scenes, the very presence of this episode in the graphic novels adds weight to the information of The Wrap b>, because all characters in the expanded DC universe must be connected.
We add that a similar story about the revenge of an ordinary person on superheroes was recently shown in the film "The First Avenger: Confrontation", where Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl) tried to get even with the Avengers for his death families in Sokovia during the events of Age of Ultron.
There are no official comments from Warner Bros. regarding the introduction of Black Manta into the plot of the future tape. Jason Momoa made a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman. Next year, the actor will play a major role in Justice League, and Aquaman will be released on July 26, 2018 .
