Trailer Thoughts: "Justice League: Throne of Atlantis"

Justice-League-Throne-of-Atlantis-- Flash and Aquaman

Continuing the pattern of DC Entertainment films, we just got a Batman film in “Batman: Assault on Arkham,” so now it’s time for a Justice League movie.

This one, “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis,” is the Aquaman new 52 origin to introduce him to the Justice League. I didn’t understand why Aquaman needed to be replaced in “Justice League: War” by Shazam, but Atlantis’ rightful leader gets his due in this feature.

Justice-League-Throne-of-Atlantis-GL, Wonder Woman and CyborgRight away, the animation stands out and even in the quick clip, we see that this is another effort that will definitely earn its PG-13 rating. Not that I have a big problem with it, but it seems a bit counter-intuitive for DC to revamp their universe in an attempt to get younger readers and make their movies so decidedly non-kid-friendly.

Black Manta is also making an appearance, but it looks like the main focus is on Aquaman vs. Ocean Master so that should be fun as that’s not a main comic rivalry we’ve seen outside of the comics too often.
