The newest DC Universe Animated Original Movie, Batman: Assault on Arkham, hit digital release last week and will arrive on home video on August 12th, 2014, and with it came a great look at the next animated feature, the Aquaman-centric Justice League: Throne of Atlantis.
Throne of Atlantis will serve as a direct sequel to last year’s Justice League: War, and tells the story of Atlantean villain Ocean Master, Aquaman’s half-brother Orm, who declares war on the surface dwellers after his king is killed following an alien invasion. Based loosely on the New 52 story arc written by DC Comics’ chief creative officer Geoff Johns, Throne of Atlantis focuses on a young Arthur Curry, who discovers his Atlantean heritage and, from the looks of it, must team up with the Justice League to bring Orm down.
Entertainment news site Idle Hands posted a ton of new stills from the upcoming film this week, which show off its crisp visuals as well as giving us a glimpse at Green Lantern, Cyborg, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Aquaman’s future wife, Mera.
Fans have been hoping to see Aquaman get his own animated film for quite some time now, especially after the character’s absence in Justice League: War. If Throne of Atlantis is anywhere near as enjoyable and action-packed as Justice League: War and Assault on Arkham, we’re in for quite the treat. Plus, the film should act as a nice way to tide fans over until Aquaman’s quick debut in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and serve as a way for DC to prove how awesome the character really is.
Check out the new stills below, and watch for Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis when it releases on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download in early 2015.
