Pictures Like most superhero movies, Aquaman offers a hint of the future in a mid-credits bonus scene. After a big spoiler warning, let’s dive right in, shall we? spoilers-dceuDavid Kane (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), one of the movie’s secondary villains, leads a team of pirates who hijack a Russian submarine early in the movie. His father, Jesse (Michael Beach), is part of that team whose efforts fail after Aquaman (Jason Momoa) intervenes to rescue the sub’s crew.39b969a4-708a-433c-ab87-a892196ecff0-4734-0000038c076d5b39Black Manta may have a poster, but he doesn’t appear in costume much during the movie.

He makes an alliance with the movie’s main villain, King Orm (Patrick Wilson), to get his hands on Atlantean technology that’ll make him a match for Aquaman and takes the name Black Manta.Later, Manta leads a team of Atlantean commandos tasked with taking out Aquaman and his ally Mera (Amber Heard) in Sicily, but he’s defeated and thrown off a cliff to a watery fate.However, the mid-credits scene reveals that an unconscious Manta is rescued by people on a boat. We learn he was saved by Dr. Stephen Shin (Randall Park), who’s seen ranting about Atlantis to a disbelieving audience on TV a few times during the movie.A recuperating Manta agrees to lead Shin to Atlantis in exchange for the scientist’s help in finding and killing Aquaman.It’s a pretty obvious bit of sequel setup, but it’d make sense given how much development Manta is given in this movie and how little payoff we get — he basically fights Aquaman in costume once and is badly beaten.
