James Wan will return to the DC Universe a bit of before anticipated. Wan will govt produce Aquaman: King of Atlantis, a 3 episode animated collection for HBO Max with Warner Bros. Animation. Only a few particulars can be found in the mean time however HBO says that “every of the standalone episodes can have a singular storyline following the adventures of Aquaman as protector of the deep.” It appears like that is an all-ages affair, and that is completely in step with the nutso underwater fairytale tone of Wan’s billion greenback grossing 2018 Aquaman film.
The collection seems to choose up proper after the tip of that film left off, though it is most likely not strictly in continuity with it. Here is the official synopsis:
“The collection begins with Aquaman’s first day on the job as king of Atlantis and he is bought a LOT of catching as much as do. Fortunately, he has his two royal advisors to again him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water controlling warrior-princess. Between coping with unscrupulous floor dwellers, elder evils from past time, and his personal half-brother who needs to overthrow him, Aquaman goes to must rise to the problem and show to his topics, and to himself, that he is the precise man for the trident!”
Wan will govt produce alongside Michael Clear (Annabelle Comes House), Rob Hackett (Swamp Factor…ahem #SaveSwampThing), and Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!). Victor Courtright (Thundercats Roar!) and Marty Halpern-Graser (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). There hasn’t been any phrase on casting but, but it surely positive could be enjoyable if they might entice Jason Momoa to reprise his massive display function to voice Arthur, whose gruff, bro-y dudeness would work very well right here.
“This DC property is a fan-favorite wealthy with well-known characters and dynamic storylines,” mentioned HBO Max head of authentic content material Sarah Aubrey in a press release. “On the heels of Warner Bros. Photos’ field workplace smash hit, we’re sure Aquaman: King of Atlantis will likely be an thrilling addition to our already sturdy slate of children and household programming.”
There isn’t any launch date but set for Aquaman: King of Atlantis, however do not be stunned if it is a bit of stopgap in 2021 earlier than the arrival of Aquaman 2 on Dec. 16, 2022. Wan is prone to direct that movie as properly, though in the mean time he hasn’t formally confirmed that. However he is undoubtedly concerned with the event of it, and it was clear from the splendid visuals of the primary movie that he loves working throughout the technicolor aesthetic of Atlantis.
