I think it's the other way around.. they are looking for an ethnic MERA.. so I am guessing atlanteans are ethnic.. so his dad is caucasian human and his mom would be tanned/diverse ethnicity. So I could see Haiwwaiian, Indian and other Asian actors in roles as atlanteans
MICHAEL K WILLIAMS as BLACK MANTA
Toby Kebbell for Ocean Master
I still want to see Ray winstone as King shark. Not as a primary antoganist but perhaps as someone Aquaman has to form an uneasy alliance with
El Mayimbe is saying its Black Manta
A lot of the names people are bringing up for Manta, while good actors, don't seem like they'd pose much of a physical threat to a dude as big as Momoa. I know they can do camera tricks and all that, but I think you need someone at least somewhat physically imposing in the role. That said, Michael K. Williams is awesome and he brings intensity to every role he plays, so if they cast him, I'd be thrilled.
I loved Michael on Boardwalk Empire and think he'd be a great Black Manta!
That picture of Snyder and momoa taken on the set of justice league way back when seemed to show a Manta suit. I always thought it was mantas suit anyways. Anyone have that picture?
as cliche as it is i know who i want
Idris is a good choice. Also Boris Kodjoe.
Black Manta has to be someone who looks pretty intimidating out of costume and who you'd believe is this guy that's kind of militant, but it's really just a facade for him to be a despot.
Go big or go home.
I think Denzel is too old to play Black Manta.
He definitely is, he is 62 and Momoa is only 37.
I'd throw Michael Jai White into the mix as well. Especially after he didn't get as much time to shine on Arrow as Bronze Tiger as I would have liked.
He could work well as he fits the age range and could easily be a bonified intimidating threat.
If Mayimbe is right, I would like to see Omari Hardwick from the Starz series Power play Black Manta. He's a good actor, and while not quite as tall as Momoa, he has the kind of build that looks like he could pose a physical threat to him.
Michael K Williams is interested!!!
Predictable but solid choice. Plus, if they do it right they can sow the seeds for Orm's climb to power
I hate that helmet so much. I laugh every time.
Black Manta. He still looks like a something out of a cheesy 1930's horror flick. Though, I think the Young Justice version looks pretty cool.
Michael Jai White is interested
