Black Manta – Edi Gathegi
Aquaman has been the butt of far too many lame jokes over the years, and it’s about time we see the King of Atlantis come to the big screen and prove to everyone how really kickass he is. For him to really show his potentially, he’ll need a great villain, and Black Manta definitely fits that bill. He has been the primary big bad for Aquaman for a long time, and we’d love to see him on screen. Edi Gathegi was great in his bit part as Darwin in X-Men: First Class, but we think it’s time for him to make the leap to big villain instead of minor hero.
