Yahya Abdul-Mateen II finally confirms he’s Black Manta in ‘Aquaman’ by thanking The Rock

The Rock Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

In late January it was reported that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was “in talks” to play Black Manta in Aquaman. Fellow DC Films actor The Rock congratulated Abdul-Mateen a few days later on February 3rd, but the role wasn’t officially confirmed… until now!

Abdul-Mateen finally replied to The Rock’s February tweet this morning, confirming that he will be playing Black Manta in Aquaman.

The Rock and Abdul-Mateen can be seen together in Baywatch next month. That’s also when Aquaman production is expected to begin in Australia. The movie will be released on December 21, 2018.
