DC Entertainment, via TV Guide, has unveiled the cast and a little detail for their next direct-to-dvd animated feature, Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis. Here’s the excerpt:
“We meet him at a low point in his life,” says supervising producer James Tucker, who created one of the most beloved versions of the character, the jovial warrior on Batman: The Brave and the Bold. “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.”
Though Tucker knows that Aquaman has a passionate fanbase — he’s been hearing their pleas for a movie like this for years — he also knows that the general public may be a bit skeptical. “A lot of times with Aquaman people just focus on his powers and their opinion of them as being lame — which I don’t believe — and that’s all they think of him,” he says. “Hopefully we’ve made him a person in people’s eyes first. And then the powers and the telepathy with fish and all that can be put in perspective.”

The lead role is voiced by 90210 and Star-Crossed vet Matt Lanter, who earned his animation bona fides as Anakin Skywalker on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The film, a continuation of the story begun in last winter’s Justice League: War, brings back much of the cast, including Jason O’Mara (Batman), Shemar Moore (Cyborg), Christopher Gorham (the Flash), Sean Astin (Shazam). Several Warner Animation vets return to play in the DC sandbox, including Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern), Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman) and Jerry O’Connell (Superman). Being Human’s Sam Witwer, another Clone Wars alum, stars as Aquaman’s devious brother Orm, who is behind the move towards war, while Sumalee Montano, who played Katana in Beware the Batman, plays the fiery badass Mera, Aquaman’s future queen.

Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis will be released DVD, Blu-ray, digital HD, and on demand 2015
