With the confirmation the other day of an Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa, speculation began of everything from who the villain would be to whether the former Game of Thrones star would go with the long hair and beard or the short haired clean-shaven look… Now for me it seems obvious that if you are doing an Aquaman movie you need to have his family, Orm and Mera and the odds are Black Manta is showing up. Word from the Aquaman Shrine is they've been told those three will definitely be in the movie… along with The Trench.
We've been told that 2018's AQUAMAN starring Jason Momoa will also feature Mera, Orm, Black Manta and THE TRENCH!

They don't give their source so I have my doubts about this report and I have to question bringing in the creatures from the Trench so early when you have to establish the character, Atlantis and all his supporting cast… seems like making Orm (Ocean Master) and Black Manta the villains makes more sense for a first movie. But we will see.
