Discussion in 'Aquaman' started by Speed Force, Jan 31, 2017.
Clear pr move to distract from the Affleck news. But this guy has the look for sure. Glad to see Manta is in. Haven't seen the guy act but I trust Wan
Not super familiar with Yahya, but he doesn't look like a bad choice.*
Wasn't expecting Ocean Master and Black Manta, but I'm guessing only one (likely Orm) is focused as the heel.
Good timing DC!
Even more motivation to finish The Get Down.
I approve! Aquaman is shaping up to be one amazing movie it seems. Too bad there's all that chaos with Flash and Batman!
I don't know much about Yahya but from what I've heard he's a phenomenal actor!
I like that the actor is not as well known. Giving someone a chance.
If done right this movie could blow ANY movie with Poseidon in it or about Poseidon that has ever happened out of the water.
I so want this to be awesome and I'm sure that the trailer should easily generate buzz due to being an underwater epic (generally speaking)
Definitely excited to hear about whose playing Black Manta and this coming together in general.
No idea how good this guy is but the fact we're getting Black Manta is ****ing cool!
Pretty much of the same mind here.
Good choice. I liked him in The Get Down.
Wan, don't waste his skills...
Agreed. Honestly his talent exceeded the material he was given. That could possibly also be the case with this movie, given the dceu track record so far, lol.
Is there some film of his you guys would recommend watching? I'd like to get familiar with the guy and I've no desire to watch that TV series.
Eh, maybe. I don't really agree, though. It's not like he's a well known actor.
He's pretty new, so he hasn't been in much. He's in a few things coming out this year including Baywatch.
Is it confirmed? I thought he's just being considered for the role but it isn't finalised yet. Being tapped for a role doesn't mean he has it.
I'll check out the other things though, thanks.
Says he was offered the role, i don't see him turning down the biggest role of his life
Yes, variety confirmed it.
Yeah, they rushed the casting of one of their films' antagonists just to distract from the catastrophic news that their Actor/Director is only Actor now.
Excellent. Love me some Black Manta.
Not what I said. They didn't rush casting but they rushed the announcement to distract us with some positive news. Pretty suspect that we get two huge casting announcements immediately after the Affleck news.
Does it really matter, though?
