Though they’re still figuring out what to do on the big screen, DC has been killing it on the animated movie front for years with some very solid superhero flicks. For the latest, you'd better hold your breath (literally).
With the Flash most recently getting the spotlight in the solid pic Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, based on the Flashpoint comic arc, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has now revealed that Aquaman will be getting his very own adventure sometime soon.
[Johns] revealed the development via Twitter, in response to a fan wondering when the king of Atlantis would get his own movie. Sure, he played a (murderous, bloodthirsty) role in The Flashpoint Paradox, but it's high time we get a true Aquaman flick.
The character has had a comic renaissance as of late, finally proving you can tell some pretty awesome stories with DC’s typical whipping-boy hero.
So, now that we know an Aquaman animated film is coming, which story arc do you want them to base it on?
Aquaman getting his own animated movie
I would like a solo Aquaman movie before they tried to tackle Throne of Atlantis. Established the kingdom and it's enemies and then show the invading conflict.
The Justice League episode: Enemy Below is basically the same story and needed no build up. Who'se to say Aquaman will get more than one movie when Wonder Woman and Flash haven't?
Also, after the Aquaman film, 6/7 founders will have headlined a film.
I can't wait for this animated movie to come out. It has taken them quite a bit of time to finally announce this. I would rather see Aquaman take a solo movie like Wonder Woman rather than a shared movie with the Justice League. The reason is because it needs to establish that Aquaman is a perfectly capable individual on his own, that doesn't need the Justice League. I would like to see either Black Manta and/or Ocean Master be the main villain(s) too. This could potentially set a path for a live-action solo film in the next ten years.
@outlawrenegade: Well I suppose I don't really count Throne of Atlantis as an Aquaman movie. It's a Justice League movie that would star Aquaman. Same as Flashpoint isn't a Flash story, it just stars him.
Agreed I don't see why people consider the Flashpoint movie a Flash movie they most likely made that for him out of fear of giving him a solo act, Throne of Atlantis would be the same thing but with Aquaman there both great stories though but we could all be wrong about Throne of Atlantis and they could end up doing The Trench or The Other's.
