‘Aquaman’: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Cannot Stop Raving About The Film

The post-production work on Warner Bros. upcoming film Aquaman is going on in full swing. Actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen, who plays the villain by the name Black Manta cannot stop talking about the film, which he thinks will be loved by the fans.

Even though Black Manta will not be the main villain in DC’s Aquaman, actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen is incredibly excited about his role, the film, and the set location. In an interview with GQ, Abdul-Mateen said:

“The scale is epic and this movie is going to be so good! I can’t say too much, but in the hands of [director] James Wan and with Jason Momoa at the helm, I think people are going to be really happy with it.”

Talking about his workout regime, Mateen said it was exhausting but worthwhile. He said:

“It’s been about five days a week in the gym and doing fight training, too. I have a love-hate relationship with working out. I do not enjoy the experience when I’m doing it, but I never regret it. I think I’m in the best shape of my life.”

Yahya Abdul-Mateen also revealed that he enjoyed filming in Australia and recommend\ed everybody to visit the country.

“It’s just so low stress. I love it and have been telling everyone that if they ever get the chance they should come visit. I kind of assumed all of Australia was like the Gold Coast – so I was telling people Australians just work out and go to the beach. Like, Australia has it figured out! But then I went to Sydney and it was nothing like the Gold Coast – but I still loved it,” said Mateen.

DC released the first look of Aquaman/Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) early last month. Aquaman’s angry looks as he strides along was much talked about.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman is scheduled to release in theaters on December 21, 2018. The star-cast includes Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Amber Heard as Mera, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Patrick Wilson as Prince Orm Marius (Ocean Master), Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna.
