This also isn’t the only place where Atlantean weaponry is seen in the Snyder Cut’s trailer. In the glimpse offered of the Knightmare future first seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a trident is visible, as is Wonder Woman’s broken shield, on the site of the demolished Hall of Justice. However, this trident bears three prongs and is more akin to the Trident of Atlan seen in James Wan’s Aquaman. King Atlan himself is also seen wielding his trident in a snippet of the history lesson.
The Black Pearl is the most famous ship in Pirates of the Caribbean, but she went through a few captains in the movies. Here are all of them.
Here’s every captain the Black Pearl had in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. On the seven seas, any pirate captain worth their salt should command a ship befitting of their reputation and skill. In Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie series, there are plenty of formidable vessels, from Davy Jones’ Flying Dutchman to the British Navy’s HMS Endeavour. But by far the most famous ship in Pirates of the Caribbean’s fleet is the Black Pearl, the boat at the very heart of the original movie.
The fictional history of the Black Pearl is as tumultuous and colorful as any of the human characters in Pirates of the Caribbean’s maritime lore. The ship has switched allegiances, outlived captains, been miniaturized inside a bottle, and is always a coveted bounty among the ocean’s top pirates. With a mythical origin story and a reputation for unmatched speed, any pirate would be lucky to find themselves aboard the (in)famous Black Pearl, and here are the 4 captains lucky enough to tame her.
The first chronological appearance of the Black Pearl comes in the flashback sequence of Dead Men Tell No Tales when Jack Sparrow is only a teenager. At this point in the timeline, the ship is still known as the Wicked Wench and under the command of Captain Morgan. The Wench’s entire crew, with the exception of Jack, are killed during a battle with Salazar’s Silent Mary, but before Morgan can breathe his last, he leaves the Wicked Wench in Jack’s care.
After the Salazar incident, Jack’s path took him away from piracy and the Wicked Wench, but in a strange quirk of fate, Sparrow would reunite with the ship while working for the East India Trading Company, where he once again took command of the Wench. After serving East India faithfully for several years, Jack’s began to clash with his superiors over the transporting of slaves as cargo, which Sparrow was vehemently against. Due to his insubordination, Jack was captured and the Wicked Wench destroyed, but Sparrow struck a deal with Davy Jones to revive the vessel. Blackened by fire damage, Jack renamed his ship the Black Pearl and set sail for a life as a pirate.
During Jack Sparrow’s first two years as the captain of the Black Pearl, he brought one Hector Barbossa aboard as a first mate, but this grizzled sailor would betray his captain, leading a mutiny and leaving Jack stranded on a remote island. This turn of events would actually prove fortuitous for Jack, as the crew under Barbossa’s command seized a haul of cursed Aztec Treasure, turning the Pearl and her men into a ghost ship. Jack manages to kill Barbossa and reclaim his ship in The Curse of the Black Pearl, but command would flit between Sparrow and a resurrected Barbossa during the events of At World’s End. They were even forced to work together on one occasion. After passing between Sparrow and Barbossa several times, the Black Pearl was last seen under the leadership of Captain Jack once again.
