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!”
