Aquaman: James Wan Shares BTS Photo Of Yahya Voicing Black Manta

For a long time, the DCEU community has been awaiting a big reveal from the Aquaman director. Fans are expecting either James Wan or Yahya Abdul-Mateen II to unveil the first look at Black Manta’s costume.

Earlier today, Wan surprised his followers on Twitter by sharing a behind-the-scenes photo of Mateen II inside a recording room, holding a trash can up in the air. Fans can check out the image below.

As absurdly funny it looks, the director has revealed that the trash can has its purpose. Here’s what he had to say:

Doing voice looping. Hey @yahya, why are you talking into a trash can?? Oh right. Fancy way of simulating the inside of a certain large helmet,” wrote Wan in his Twitter post.

Fans who have watched DC’s animated series Young Justice would be well aware of how Black Manta sounds wearing his headgear. From the looks of it, Yahya’s portrayal of Black Manta’s voice could share a resemblance to Khary Payton’s voice from the cartoon show.

By far, Warner Bros. has only revealed official production stills and posters of Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry and Amber Heard’s Mera.  But fans are expecting to get their first glimpse at other supporting characters such as Vulko, Ocean master Orm and Black Manta.

Aquaman wrapped up principal photography last October. It is currently the only slated DC film for 2018 release, set to hit theatres on December 21st.

The first trailer for the film is yet to be revealed to the masses. Earlier last year at SDCC,  Momoa revealed a small teaser for Aquaman at the convention. But Warner Bros. didn’t release it to the public.

Later, Pursue News’ also got its hands on set photos which confirmed that the trailer was specially shot for Comic-con.  Stay in touch with our updates for more news on Aquaman and others related to the DC Extended Universe.
