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.

Its SUPER dissapointing that whoever voiced Green Lantern in JL War isnt reprising his role. As cool as Nathan Filion is all I hear is Nathan Fillion. The actor in War was one of the best parts of the movie. He was hilarious when he needed to be and serious when the time came for it.

I thought Hal Jordan finally had his iconic voice actor. Hopefully hes back in whatever sequel we will see to this. If he isnt than just stick with this voice cast. If its in the same continuity I dont want their voices to sound different in every film!

With how dcau has been doing lately, not sure if they're honoring or insulting Arthur... I'd be lying if I say I'm not looking forward to Attack on Arkham solely because it's Gubler voicing The Riddler and that I have hopes for this one.

Never was a big fan of Aquaman but I do want this to work out for his sake...

I like this design, the one they need to change is Mera's. It just...doesn't look like her at all. They got rid of her full green suit, her golden tiara (now green?) and her hair is tied back. Doesn't look like her. Hopefully she'll be an awesome part of the film and I doubt it'll make me terribly upset but still...it would have been nice to just use her comic look

Nathan Fillion voicing GL is the best! I always thought of him as the standard for the character, like Conroy with batman.

1. Aquaman looks like my dad...

2. I wonder if Kaldur and Garth will appear.

3. I was hoping the Justice League wouldn't be in it to be honest.

4. Too bad all the DTV movies from DC have sucked recently. I haven't liked any of them since Dark Knight Returns Part 1.

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.

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

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

@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.

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

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

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

Agreed.

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

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

@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.

@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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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