“Yesterday saw it reported that Aquaman will be filming in Australia and that Michael Kenneth Williams is attached to the project.” – cosmicbooknews.com
It was then suggested (online) that Michael Kenneth Williams would be playing Black Manta in Aquaman.
A fan (on Twitter) asked director James Wan if Michael Kenneth Williams will be playing Black Manta, in which Wan said no – relating tweet can be read below.
“Nah, not real” – @creepypuppet
“It should be noted the original article on Australia’s Telegraph didn’t state Michael Kenneth Williams was playing Black Manta, just that: “Willem Dafoe and Michael Kenneth Williams are also attached to the project, that is expected to begin filming in the new year.” – cosmicbooknews.com
Who knows! Michael Kenneth Williams may be playing a different character in Aquaman.
