For a hero who’s been around since his More Fun Comics debut in 1941, Aquaman just doesn’t get enough respect. But that’s all about to change.
Sure, Jason Mamoa’s brawny Justice League debut gave the character some much-deserved credibility, which should hopefully only grow when James Wan’s standalone DCEU film drops this Christmas. But until you’ve starred in a LEGO DC Super Heroes animated movie, it’s hard to really breach that upper echelon of metahuman respect.
Well, start stretching your bowing joints, because as you can see in our exclusive Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis trailer below, the ascendancy of the King of the Seven Seas is nigh.
You heard it here first, folks: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis is coming to Blu-ray/Digital later this summer, where the super hero who best wears orange shall battle the mighty Atrocitus (Jonathan Adams) and the Red Lanterns. But just because Aquaman (Dee Bradley Baker) is getting the super-duper hero treatment, that doesn’t mean he plans on waging the war for his ocean realm all by his lonesome. And The Marine Marvel’s got a pretty rad group of friends to call upon for help: the Justice League.
Joining Aquaman on his perilous journey to Area 52 at Dread Lake will be Batman (Troy Baker), Superman (Nolan North), Wonder Woman (Grey Griffin), Cyborg (Khary Payton), and the newest member of the League, Jessica Cruz/Green Lantern (Cristina Milizia). We’ll also see plenty of action from other returning characters from Warner Bros. Animation/DC Entertainment productions, including Alyson Stoner as Batgirl, Eric Bauza as Jimmy Olsen, and Scott Menville as Robin/Damian Wayne.
Since we’re dealing with Aquaman’s home turf… er water, we’ll also get to meet some newcomers to the LEGO DC Super Hero universe including Susan Eisenberg as Mera, Fred Tatasciore as Lobo, and Trevor Devall as Ocean Master.
You can bet that Aquaman is going to need all the help he can get, since danger doesn’t exactly lie beneath the surface at Dread Lake, which is technically a dry lake. How will The Dweller-in-the-Depths rise to the challenge? We shall see this summer!
