Yahya Abdul-Mateen II confirmed he is set to reprise his role as Black Manta opposite Jason Momoa in Aquaman 2.

Aquaman 2 is happening! It is happening, and we can look for that, I believe, in 2022,” Abdul-Mateen said during an interview with Uproxx. “So I’m excited to be part of that. Black Manta will be back, and hopefully, he’ll be causing a lot more trouble than he did in the first one.”

While Black Manta appeared to be defeated before the final act of Aquaman, the Jason Momoa film featured a post-credits scene setting up an alliance between the villain and Dr. Stephen Shin in the sequel.

Momoa also recently teased plans for Aquaman 2, with a new profile from Esquire revealing that he’s able to bring his own ideas to the project now.

“I came in with a big pitch,” Momoa explained. “I came in with the whole thing mapped out, and they loved it.”

Aquaman 2 will premiere on December 16, 2022.
