DC Fans rejoice! The trailer for that long-awaited Aquaman film has been released! You know the one!
No! Not that one! I'm talking about the new animated direct-to-video DC film, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis! In all seriousness, this film looks amazing and just further proves how well DC is at making animated movies. Throne of Atlantis takes place after the events of a previous animated JLA film, Justice League War.
After the events of War, Ocean Master and Black Manta declare war against the surface in retaliation of Darkseid's cataclysmic invasion. Queen Atlanna, in a desperate effort to bring peace between the people of the sea and land, seeks out her other son; one Arthur Curry. Arthur is Ocean Master's half-brother, a half human who has no knowledge of his Atlantean background.
Noticing the danger around him, Arthur embraces his destiny! Joining the Justice League, Arthur uses his powers to restore balance between the two worlds as Aquaman!
Thrones of Atlantis is the 22nd film in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies (DCUAOM) and the third in a new series of shared universe DC Animated Films. The first and second being Justice League War and Son of Batman, respectively.
The film stars Jason O'Mara, Sean Astin, Steven Blum and Nathan Fillion and is slated for a January 27th, 2015 release! You can check out the awesome trailer below:
