Someone must’ve gone ahead and said his name five times in front of a mirror, because Candyman is back.

New Candyman

Director Nia DaCosta has confirmed something we theorized about earlier this month: reports of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II taking over Tony Todd‘s role of Candyman in the Candyman reboot were not entirely accurate. The news of Abdul-Mateen II joining the film came with the claim that the Aquaman actor was the new Candyman, but according to DaCosta, that’s not correct.

The actor himself was recently asked his thoughts on the matter, and he replied that he would very much like to be in the film in some capacity – but he also won’t take it personal if it doesn’t happen.
