Aquaman Adds Potential Third Villain

Michael Beach, formerly of Pitch fame has been cast in Aquaman as a character with a possible connection to one of the film’s villains.

Beach will be playing “Jesse Kane” who Deadline says is a hijacker who has a fateful interaction with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. The rumor mill is saying that Kane will be the father of Yaya Abdul-Mateen’s Black Manta, who will supposedly vow vengeance on Aquaman for the death of his father. This rumor was stoked by a photo Beach and Mateen took back in May, in Australia where the film is being made.

Beach later on Twitter responded to the possible connection with a non-denial, saying “Yes or no … Correct!”

This is pretty on the spot when it comes to New 52 Black Manta. All we know about Black Manta following Rebirth is that his father’s first name is David. Beach will be the film’s third villain alongside Mateen’s Black Manta and Patrick Wilson’s Ocean Master.
Aquaman will be in movie theaters December 21st of 2018.
