    As cool as William's Manta would be...I've yet to see an actor petitioning for a role actually get it :sweat:.

    We do have the examples of Ryan Reynolds and Chadwick Boseman who both sought their respective Marvel superhero roles before they were eventually offered the job.

    But they didn't do it publicly, which comes across as desperate.

    Well, Boseman was offered and said he was interested. Not like Morris Chestnut who did talk about wanting the role. Marvel apparently always had Boseman on their shortlist.

    We don't know how DC is working, as they seem to be designed as individual films, as opposed to Marvel. So we have to wait who will be Black Manta.

    It's being reported the movie will film in Australia and pre-production starts before Christmas. It is supported by speculation it will done at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast in Queensland because of its film water tank and relationship with Warner.

    Pity. But 3-4 more months will probably be a boon for the VFX crews.

    Though hopefuly it doesn't subject the movie to more studio edits in the interim :sweat:.

    Of course it would be a Watchmen alumni :p.

    Though good to finally have Orm cast, and Wilson should be good in the role :).

    I wonder if this means Ocean Master will be the main villain, rather then Black Manta, or if they'll hold off on Orm going evil for a possible sequel (and to avoid Loki comparisons)?

    Plus Wan and Wilson have collaborated on the paranormal movie franchises, the Conjuring and Insidious.

    But yeah, we'll see what role Orm is playing...

    Have they ever really casted Manta? Orm might be the main baddie for now.

    Well, they haven't, but there's still time for that to happen and there've been plenty of rumors of Manta being in the movie.

    I doubt we won't see Aquaman's Archenemy show up in his first solo movie in at least some form...

    This is WB/DC so right now as Ive stated multiple times, we can understand if they don't.

    12/13: After Wan shared a photo with Italy's Castle of Venus in the background, it was confirmed the movie would film there in September 2017. Poseidonis?

    12/14: It's been reported $22 million was spent to bring Aquaman to the Gold Coast for filming. Also, the film will have a $160 million budget and provide over 1,200 jobs for locals.

    Well, hopefully it can earn back that budget and then some :sweat:.
