Black Manta is going to be the most badass villain in the DCEU

Man was insanely good in Aquaman. How did you guys think he was?

I loved Black Manta - the costume, the actor, the backstory, all of it!!! I’m looking forward to seeing where they go with his character in the next movie. I want to see more of Dr. Shin too.

I loved Black Manta in Aquaman! He was everything I wanted in a live-action version of Black Manta. I can’t wait until the next movie!

I loved Manta too. Shin is a villain in the comics I believe, so it’ll be interesting to see where he goes in the sequel (s).

My favorite DCEU villain is General Zod. That is one guy you do not mess with.

Waiting on Sinestro and the REAL Parallax (not the fart cloud we got in 2011)

The 2011 Parallax reminded me of a dog, so I am anxious to see what the next version looks like.

But, Black Manta was alright. After watching it again, I was not as annoyed about some things, but I still think an assassin shouldn’t have been quickly defeated by a ball and chains slug at him. Yes, he had system malfunctioning on his radar, but before that screen appeared in his helmet, he already knew his equipment was damaged, and he should have handled it better. Also, again some leniency because he is a novice, but if the majority of people are satisfied with a watered-down version of the “stealthy” Black Manta, then little improvement will be brought to the sequel.

Glad to see James Wan embraced the absurdity of Manta’s design. Any other director would have tried to modernize it or make it look like something would exist in the real world. James Wan just said “F*** it, let’s go all in”, and gave us possible the most accurate page to screen adaptation of a comic book villain ever.

He’s an ever present character & they did him justice in the movie. One of the all time great villains imho.

I don’t know about Zod being the best. I never really felt for him and Black Manta feels like there is more to him then just what the movie gave us. In the next movie, they could include flashbacks with him and his father and it will create a more relatable and grounded villian.
