"Aquaman" Movie Updates

Warners have confirmed the identity of the DC Comics' super-villain, who will torment 'Arthur Curry', aka 'Aquaman' (Jason Momoa), in director James Wan's upcoming "Aquaman" stand-alone 3D underwater feature that could make Marvel's 'Namor: The Sub-Mariner' look like 'Charlie The Tuna':

'Black Manta', the archenemy of 'Aquaman' debuted in DC's "Aquaman" #35 (September 1967) created by Bob Haney and Nick Cardy.

'David' was originally an autistic orphan placed in the 'Gotham City' prison 'Arkham Asylum'. He felt comfortable in freezing cold water, but found cotton sheets excruciatingly painful. Because the attendants at Arkham did not know how to deal with autism, they would end up restraining him to the bed as he struggled and screamed.

The boy would end up being subjected to experimental treatments. One treatment seemed to clear the boy's head, but left him violent as a result, killing the scientist who administered the treatment, escaping from Arkham.

As an adult, he designed a costume and fashioned a high-tech submersible inspired by manta rays. Taking the name Black Manta, he and his masked army became a formidable force, clashing with Aquaman, Wonder Woman and a whole lot more....
