Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s new Black Manta suit from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was revealed.
Production on James Wan’s highly-anticipated DC Extended Universe sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is underway, and we received an exciting behind-the-scenes look at what to expect. Some of the exciting action sequences and massive sets were teased, but perhaps the coolest reveal was the new design for Black Manta, played by Emmy Award-winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
From the behind-the-scenes look, it appears that the new Black Manta suit looks to take even further influence from the Aquaman comic books, making it a near-perfect translation into live-action form. Couple that with the brilliant onscreen physical presence of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in the suit, we truly got something striking to behold.

Here is the synopsis for the first Aquaman film:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
