The voice cast for DC’s newest animated feature “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis” has been revealed. “Throne of Atlantis” will serve as a sequel to “Justice League: War” and will be loosely based on the “Atlantis Rising” arc from the comics. The central plot will remain the same as half-brothers Orm (A.K.A. Ocean Master) and Aquaman (Arthur Curry) fight for the throne of Atlantis. One key difference between the animated feature and the comic is that unlike in the “Atlantis Rising” arc, Arthur Curry will know nothing about his Atlantean heritage at the start, which will help introduce the character of Aquaman to those unfamiliar with his origins.
Aquaman will be voiced by Matt Lanter, and Orm will be voiced by Sam Witwer. Witwer’s voice work can be heard in “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed” where he plays Starkiller. Witwer also played Darth Maul in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, where Anakin Skywalker was played by Lanter.
The majority of the cast from “Justice League: War” will return with Jason O’Mara as Batman, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Christopher Gorham as Flash, and Sean Astin as Shazam. Superman will be voiced by Jerry O’Connell who voiced Captain Marvel in “Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam”, and Rosario Dawson will voice Wonder Woman, best known for her on screen role in “Rent”. Nathan Fillion will voice Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern, who has voiced the character previously in “Justice League: Doom” and “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights”. Aquaman’s love-interest (and wife in the comics) Mera will be voiced by Sumalee Montano, who voiced Katana on “Beware the Batman”.
“Justice League: Throne of Atlantis” will come out some time in 2015. More information about “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis” and other DC animation projects will be released at San Diego Comic-Con.
