The King of the Seven Seas joins the Justice League in Throne of Atlantis



The DC Animated movies have never failed to impress but as the pendulum swung from Batman to Superman project there has been an apparent lack of new characters. Fans have been crying out for a Flash film (Flashpoint partly answered that need) and one centered on Aquaman. Throne of Atlantis, based on the multi-part story chronicled in the monthly Justice League comic book may fill that slot as well.

The home video release will establish a modern version of the King of the Seven Seas, just in time for the upcoming debut on screen with Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Momoa has reportedly signed a four picture deal so expect to get very familiar with this hero.
