I think it goes back to the whole shared universe direction that their going with.

@micah: it just doesn't feel right. it's an american movie. it's really close to those awful marvel animes.

Nice.

At first I was really excited to hear that they were adapting this storyline, but I really hate the animation style. I like the casting of Sam Witwer and Nathan Fillion though.

I gotta disagree with you there, mon ami. DC Animated movies are actually well done and enjoyable to watch (by contrast)!

I'm not big on the "wish I were anime" style but I do have to say, I'm super excited to see this.

looks good

Man, couldn't resist giving him gills could they. Well, I'm looking forward to this film quite a bit even with some of the changes.

@i_dont_like_comics: I've never gotten this it looks like "anime" comment. That dosen't look like the anime I've seen. Sure it is probably produced in Taiwan or Korea (like most Anime) the art style looks like an extension of the Superman:TAS and Young Jsutice art style with a bit softer lighting.

With all this talk of it being an Aquaman ft. the Justice League movie hopefully Corson manages to set a good emotional foundation for the featre like Flashpoint did. Too many of these features don't do this basic aspect of storytelling imo.

Nathan Fillion!

Man, Can't Wait. DC animation rules!!! WOOOOOO AQUAMAN!!!!!!!!

Why do people hate the animation? There's nothing wrong. It's just fine.

Posted by AnthonyX

The Voice Actors look good enough to do a film adaptation!!!!!

I always enjoy these sneak peeks and behind the scenes stuff.

I liked it in Flashpoint and Assault on Arkham, but your right I don't want it to be the default style for all of them. And hey the Marvel Animes were pretty good. I enjoyed the Blade, Iron Man, and X-Men ones. They genuinely were legit animes.

Posted by DeathandGrim

Why does everyone say it "looks anime" ... because for the life of me I don't see this as anime.

Arkham doesn't look like these though. I would say everything since Flashpoint not including arkham have a similar look that I don't find very appealing.

Still upset that we don't get some of the normal VAs for certain rolls, but I'm looking forward to Lanter and Witwer and what they bring to their characters in this movie.

This'll be the first movie since Flashpoint that I haven't skipped because of crappy story-lines or character representations.

Posted by MannEffest

This looks good, please don't mess this up DC, please :(

Also, this new voice case sounds fantastic!! Granted Aquaman sounds younger than I anticipated but hey, if The Clone Wars taught me anything it's that Matt Lanter is a good voice actor if given good material. And anything with Sam Witwer in it I'm pumped for!

Is it just me or is Christopher Gorham just the perfect Barry Allen

Posted by medulaoblaganda

i don't care if its animeish. lol. just release the animated movie already, or take my money.

Edited by NightFang

I'm kind of disappointed Black Manta isn't in this.

Posted by PlaysWithSquirrels

I was interested in an Aquaman movie, but not with the Justice League from JL: War. What an unlikeable group of characters they were in that film. Now we have to deal with the Superman/Wonder Woman fan fiction in an Aquaman movie... great.

Posted by TimeLordScience

Let's hope it's better than JL: War.

Posted by Maddpanda531

I actually love the art style in these movies.

Edited by fables87

Quickly glancing at the title, I thought this was a Game of Thrones cartoon at first.

Posted by The Stegman

Nathan Fillion is the perfect Hal Jordan, and I can't wait for this film!

Posted by SynCig

I haven't seen Assault on Arkham yet but I wasn't too thrilled with Justice League: War or Son of Batman so I am really hoping they knock it out of the park with this one. DC animation is still good but it is hard not to compare the current movies to what we got in the past. Imo, the current direction doesn't compare favorably.

Edited by viin

looks awesome...liking this more than JL: War already.

and hopefully they save Black Manta for an Aquaman solo movie...

Posted by NICKXH

I actually really liked Young Justice's Aquaman. I thought his role as a father figure to Aqualad was really cool. Glad to hear they got Nathan Fillion voicing Hal Jordon. He should always voice Hal Jordon. Much like Kevin Conroy to Batman. I'm still not used to Jason O'Mara's Batman. :/

I hate this style so much. I can't watch a single DC animated movie without some small amount of disgust.

Yeah Arkham did look different. Great movie by the way.

I WILL ALWAYS LOVE DC ANIMATED MOVIES ALTOUGH HATE THE 52 UNIFORMS

Awesome! I can't wait!

Edited by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Sigh..... I was really hoping Captain Marvel wouldn't be in this. Also, dissapointed they couldn't get Shemar Moore for Cyborg :(

Other then that looks great.

Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse

Awesome. Looks really cool.

Wish Flash didn't act like a fangirl around Batman.

Posted by SilverPool

Hoping this is awesome. Looks like it's going to be like Flashpoint in that there will be a central character but it's still very much a JL film.

Posted by Perfect 10

why can bats get solo films but everyone else have to have the justice league (most annoyingly bats) in them?? sigh

im so pumped about this movie

Posted by SupBatz

It's a touch disappointing to see the Orm, rather than Vulko, will launch the attack against his own people. I really liked that you could sympathize with Orm in the original comic. Here, it seems he's just being reduced to typical villain status rather than angry monarch protecting his people.

The animation is okay. The faces all look pretty bland (especially for female characters) and I really don't like a lot of the costume designs. But Arthur looks pretty good. I really like him with the five-o'clock shadow. In costume, he looks okay. Not bad, but could be better.

Voice acting seems pretty good. I'm SO VERY VERY glad that we're not being forced to see all of the same actors from JL:War. Fillion is the perfect Hal Jordan, so it's great we'll be getting him. Superman's actor sounds spot-on, and Barry and Arthur both sound pretty great as well. Still a bit iffy on Shazam and Batman, but neither are bad choices, per se.

I'm glad that we'll be getting something of an origin story for Arthur. It'll add a new dimension to the film, and has the potential to really feel like an epic rather than a one-shot war story. I'm also liking that the movie seems like it'll be more character-based than action-based (unlike other recent DC movies).

I'm not sure I agree that Arthur is a "sarcastic" and "angry" character. Lost and semi-brooding? Definitely. But I don't think he's a joke-cracking, mad-at-the-world kind of guy. Just after his dad dies, sure. But not in present time. But I'm willing to give it a shot. I really love Aquaman, and I hope they do him justice.

do dc and marvel realize that most of their core followers are not anime/manga fans? im really starting to dislike the animation movies on both sides

Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub

Another crappy animated DC movie.

Posted by AmazingWebHead

OKAY IF WE COULD ALL STOP THE ENDLESS BITCHING FOR FIVE FREAKING SECONDS, THAT WOULD BE JUST GREAT! God, you people are all so emotionally draining I just can't stand it!

I mean, DC is kicking ass in live-action TV, just go watch that if you're all gonna gripe. It's AN AQUAMAN ORIGIN MOVIE!!! What more could you want?

6:46 Oh, don't worry Clark. You'll meet plenty from your world someday.

Posted by KaraZor-el

DC's animated films are always good. But the art lately has sucked.

Flashpoint, assault on arkham, now this.

Stop this art direction. Its horrible.

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Yeah, it sucks. Especially for fans of characters like Hawkman or Firestorm, who we know will never get anything.

Posted by longbowhunter

I loved the Throne of Atlantis story and I'll certainly give this movie a shot. But my expectations with DC's animated features are pretty low after Flashpoint Paradox.

Funny story, Shemar Moore who voiced Cyborg in the last film actually wanted to play Cyborg in live action. Also it's no secret fans have been wanting Nathan Fillion to play GL for years.
