Williams has wanted a role in a comic book film for quite a while and was even interested in joining the MCU as Black Panther before actor Chadwick Boseman was offered the part. The DC villain has been a thorn in Aquaman’s side for several years and has continuously tried to conquer Atlantis. Do you think that Williams will make a good Black Manta or would you rather prefer another actor taking on the role?
