    As far as Big Bads for the movie go, it was always going to be between Ocean Master or Black Manta, though while Manta is Arthur's archenemy, there's that personal familial conflict with Orm for them to mine so I wouldn't be surprised if they go for him as the big main villain :cool:.

    Though I wonder if Manta might end up being connected to Ocean Master in order to factor him into the movie o_O?

    I actually kind of like not using the main villain in the first movie, so I'm fine with this. Build them up, and then use the main villain to end the trilogy. I never liked that the Green Goblin was in the first Spider-Man movie, or that the Joker was in the first Batman movie. No problems here.

    Or Red Skull in the first Cap movie, though I'd say despite using the main villain for just the first movie, at least the movies did them very well ;).

    Just so long as they don't do a Mandarin, even if it ends up being an awesome twist :p.

    It sounds like we will be getting an Aquaman origin movie, rather then start him out as already the veteran king of Atlantis (which I was expecting).

    I imagine Justice League will just touch on the basics of his origin, and Mera will probably play a big part of that, while we get more in-depth about Arthur being raised by Tom Curry and learning to deal with his powers in his solo movie ;).

    Another rumor has surfaced, Black Manta is the main villain.

    Wan comments on how Atlanteans communicate underwater and likens Aquaman to the Wolverine of the JL and he's the reluctant superhero and king.

    (Gasp) Black Manta as the main villain of an Aquaman movie? I never could have guessed :p.

    I do wonder if we'll see Orm though, and maybe see his relationship with Arthur get get build-up before he becomes Ocean Master o_O?

    The Wolverine comparison would probably be even more apt if he had the hook-hand, though the trident does have three prongs :sweat:.

    I'm actually wondering if Arthur is already king at this point...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a given we'll see both like in most of their appearances in recent animation - they appeared in tandem.

    That's a lingering question among fans no doubt. The JL teaser didn't seem to confirm that - more imply he was just Arthur Curry and sort doing the Man of Steel thing, wondering the world - helping people out - dragging out the first 1.5 hour of the movie.

    Wan explains Wolverine comparison. Michael K Williams wants to be Black Manta, and Wan talks speech underwater.
