Interview: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II talks Black Manta, Working with Jason Momoa & More

Aquaman has made a big wave across the globe and now it’s finally hit American theaters! I sat down with Black Manta himself, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, during the Aquaman press junket last week! During the interview, Mateen talked about putting on the iconic suit for the first time and badass he felt. He also talked about working with Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson and how they helped mentor him during the filming process!

Watch the Interview below:

Meet Black Manta himself in this Aquaman featurette below:

Synopsis: Once home to the most advanced civilization on Earth, the city of Atlantis is now an underwater kingdom ruled by the power-hungry King Orm. With a vast army at his disposal, Orm plans to conquer the remaining oceanic people — and then the surface world. Standing in his way is Aquaman, Orm’s half-human, half-Atlantean brother and true heir to the throne. With help from royal counselor Vulko, Aquaman must retrieve the legendary Trident of Atlan and embrace his destiny as protector of the deep.
