Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Cast as Wonder Man In MCU

Well guys we got some big news coming at us from Marvel Studios and this relates to one of the stars of the Aquaman franchise as Black Manta himself is officially going to be playing the one and only Wonder Man for Marvel Studios.

That’s right everybody Yaya Abdul Mateen II is officially going to be playing wonder man according to multiple sources the big one here is, of course, the big trades that are reporting this and that it’s more or less been finalized but they can’t 100& confirm it.

It’s one of those things where he’s currently in talks and he’s still eating man most people believe that he’s already been cast just like when we heard multiple other castings in relation to what was going on with other roles.

Essentially they’re just waiting for 100% confirmation from Disney and Marvel that this is in fact true.

Yaya Abdul Mateen II Movies

Now the actor himself is not that unfamiliar with working in the Comic Book Realm again yeah he’s playing Black Manta Aquaman’s rival in the first film and the second film.

But also he did play Mr. Manhattan in Watchmen which was the HBO version, not the Zack Snyder version so it’s kind of awesome to see that he’s honestly you know doing more especially since he’s doing something with Marvel because he’s very talented.

I know people will bring this up he recently talked about how doing Aquaman and comic book Things is kind of like clown work.

I defended him there because he’s right this is stuff that was made for children’s comic books they’re now just kind of getting a glow up and they’re for everybody right?

Yeah he’s putting on a suit he’s having fun he’s doing comic book stuff it’s fun clown War that’s what he was saying don’t be mad. you could see what he’s trying to say here it’s not like Oscar-worthy performances like he’s fighting a fish man what do you want from him right.

Yaya Abdul Mateen II Confirmed as Wonder Man In MCU

So it’s cool you know none of that impacts my opinion of him I think he’s super talented I’m excited to see what he’s gonna do as Wonder Man

Because from what we understand this is supposed to be a comedic character much like in the comics. So a serious type of character like he’s playing with a Black Manta and even what he did with Manhattan.

So overall I’m really excited by this um I think that he’s gonna offer something awesome to this role as a whole and I think that you know in due time when we see what direction they go with this character in the MCU.

I think there’s going to be something interesting here with getting an actor like him to play him and just um how far out of his normal all-brooding you know I guess genre-type casting can he go out of.

And maybe this is an indication that they’re gonna go a little bit more serious with Wonder Man I mean I don’t know again it’s still very early on in development.

But overall it’s pretty awesome you know the deadline is dead set that he’s been cast so um I guess we’ll talk about it soon they’re probably gonna make it official or Disney’s gonna sit on in we’re all going to know about it for a couple of months like they did other times when it comes to castings.
