First Look at 'Justice League: Throne of Atlantis'

Feast your eyes on the first image of Aquaman and see who's providing his voice!

Aquaman may have been absent in Justice League: War, but it looks like he'll be hogging the spotlight an upcoming DC animated movie! Based on Geoff Johns' event, Throne of Atlantis, the animated film will follow Atlantis as it's locked in a conflict with the surface world. Seeing as the movie is introducing Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman, into the new animated movie universe, it'll also reveal how a young Aquaman discovers his aquatic roots.

Supervising producer James Tucker shared some extra details about the story."He's a little bit lost. His father has died and he's always been an outsider, so the one person who had his back is now gone. When that Atlanteans instigate incidents to escalate a war with the surface world, he doesn't yet know who he is. As he discovers his true history he's going to have a lot of choices to make. It's definitely about him finding his own path."

Aquaman will be voiced by Matt Lanter, the voice of Anakin Skywalker on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Since Justice League: Throne of Atlantis takes place in the same timeline as Justice League: War, Batman (Jason O'Mara), Cyborg (Shemar Moore), the Flash (Christopher Gorham), Shazam (Sean Astin), Green Lantern (Nathan Fillion), Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson), and Superman (Jerry O'Connell) will return. Joining them will be Orm (Sam Witwer) and Mera (Sumalee Montano). The characters are designed by Phil Bourassa and he says Aqauman's look is inspired by Jim Lee's New 52 design for the hero.

So, who's excited?! Let us know below.

Looks good!

Nice to see someone besides Superman or Batman taking the lead.

I really hope they make Forever Evil into an animated film.

I like aquamans design for this film, but judging by the action figure, i really dont like meras. Theyve taken away all associated features of her design, like her green scaly suit, no crown and her hair is tied back. It probably wont ruin the film for me, but i wont connect with her as mera, yknow.

Still not sure how I feel how all of the new animated movies being in a connected timeline, seems constricting.

Matt Lanter? Very nice. :D

That orange top just looks so... plain. Rest of the art looks fine. Story sounds good.

I love his hair, looks kind like 70's hair.

Cool but the animation style they've been using for this continuity sucks

You guys gotta double check that cast list. Jerry O'Connell and Nathan Fillion weren't in Justice League War...

Glad I'm not the only one who saw that.

I've been pretty lukewarm on the last few DC animated features. But I'm actually pretty excited for this and Assault on Arkham.

@mrtummytumms: That would be so great. Especially if they add in some more villains VS the Crime Syndicate scenes. They'd probably have to do Trinity War as well.

I said the characters are returning. I didn't say all of the voice actors are reprising their roles.

Yeah that would be awesome. I think Trinity War could be an okay movie, but they would have to explain a lot. Pandora, the skull, JLA, JLD, and so on.

Edited by TommytheHitman

@mrtummytumms: Yeah. Maybe they'll just skip TWar (although I still liked it) and just come up with another reason why the Syndicate have arrived and how they defeat the Justice League. Which could easily be explained.

A thousands times better than the design of the Flashpoint Aquaman. Looking forward to this.

Agreed.

Well, I guess I'll give this one a pass. 'Cause I don't give a sh!t about Aquaman.

Thank Zod Nathan Fillion is reprising his role as the voice of Green Lantern. It's a damn shame he never got a chance at being the green willed ring slinger on the big screen. Here's hoping he still gets that chance I mean him and Ben Affleck are around the same age

More skeptical then excited their "adaptions" have tended to be currently horrible.

@k4tzm4n: Not to argue or anything, but in my defense it kind of seemed like that's what you were saying. No problem. Now I know. Can I tell you something without you getting mad?

I can get that -- just wanted to clear up why I wrote it that way, though. And of course.

@tparks: That's the plan for the N52 JL, no matter how much some whine.

It looks really good.

Posted by ravisher

make sure yall dont download it illegally

support him or they will keep making batman films

Posted by Black_Claw

I'm glad they're letting someone else voice Superman. As much as I love Alan Tudyk, he was horrible as Supes.

Posted by SlickyMike88

Nice abs ?

Posted by CitizenJP

So stoked

Posted by M1cAL

@dagmar_merrill: maybe. but personally, i like it. & how they're doing recent events from the comics, just makes me more excited for the future movies

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

Looking good. Aquaman's costume looks great and the voice cast looks better this time around.

Awww, no seashell necklace? :(

Hell, it could be adapted into a live action Legion of Doom-based movie. Like I've done here.

It be awesome if the movie began with a rocket landing on the farm and we get this scene.

That part was really stupid though.

So's the concept of an entire dimension were everyone is evil. Everyone knows that when you create a mirror universe where the good guys are evil, you need to make the villains "La Resistance" as they say.

I didnt realize he was wearing an orange top. i was going to ask why his body was so much tanner than his head.

Posted by IDontLikeBirds

Finally he get's some recognition and love. He's been long overdue. The last time he really got the spotlight was with the Robot Chicken special.

Aside from that, I like the costume, though the shirt does look a little flat and I don't care for his hair. I'd like to see how they portray his personality.
