In a Newsarama-exclusive debut, we have the first ever look at Justice League: Throne of Atlantis. In the new DC Animated movie universe, Aquaman was replaced by Shazam as a founding member of the premiere superhero team - but don't fret, fans, as it was all to serve him getting a feature of his own. Make no mistake, while it says "Justice League" in the title, this is definitely an Aquaman movie.
After a tease on the blu-ray release of Assault on Arkham, Warner Bros. Animation is ready to reveal the movie in full. As Orm and Black Manta make their move against the surface world after the battle with Apokolips forces in Justice League War had deadly consequences for Atlantis, the queen of the lost underwater civilization searches for her other son, Orm's half brother Arthur. Living on the surface world with powers he doesn't understand, Arthur Curry steps into his destiny as Aquaman, teaming with the Justice League to save and unite all people of the world.
The Justice League: Throne of Atlantis panel at New York Comic Con is slated for Friday, October 10 at 7:15pm on the Empire Stage 1-E. Panelists include Matt Lanter (Aquaman), producer James Tucker, dialogue director Andrea Romano, screenwriter Heath Corson and character designer Phil Bourassa.
Other cast of Throne of Atlantis, due out Spring 2015, includes:
Sam Witwer (Orm/Ocean Master), Chris Gorham (The Flash), Jason O'Mara (Batman), Shemar Moore (Cyborg), Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman), Jerry O'Connell (Superman), Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern), Sean Astin (Shazam) and many more. The film is Directed by Ethan Spaulding, who directed Son of Batman and co-directed Batman: Assault on Arkham, the last two DC Animated movies.
