UPDATE: The images have been removed at the request of Warner Bros.
A month ago, we got our first glimpse at what Aquaman villain Black Manta would look like in director James Wan's DC Extended Universe film, Aquaman. A screenshot from the movie teased the character's signature helmet, looking like it had been ripped right from a comic book.
Now, thanks to the release of pictures of upcoming collectible statues from the film, we have our first look at Black Manta in full costume. The statue of the DC super-villain proves that the character will absolutely look like he does in the comics. The full armored body suit is sleek and menacing, and it strikes the right balance between comic book accuracy and live-action adaptation.
Black Manta will be portrayed by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in the highly-anticipated DCEU film, whose first full trailer is set to debut during this month's Comic-Con International in San Diego. Hopefully, the trailer will give us an official look at Abdul-Mateen II's Black Manta in action.
Arriving Dec. 21, director James Wan’s Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren and Nicole Kidman.
