Aquaman was a block buster for DC. Its rich world and the mind blowing action made it an instant hit. So it makes sense for WB to cash in on its popularity further. There’s something new coming from Warner Bros in regards to Aquaman. What is it? Just read on. Sadly it’s not the Snyder Cut of Justice League, but we do think we know why people want it:
New Aquaman Miniseries Coming To HBO Max
Warner Brothers is developing a animated Aquaman miniseries for their HBOMax streaming service. The miniseries will be titled, “Aquaman: King of Atlantis.” And it will produced by Aquaman director James Wan himself. Aquaman 2 is on hold as Jason Momoa is busy defending sacred land.
The animated miniseries will be three-episodes long and it will start with Arthur Curry’s first day on the job as a King of Atlantis. Aquaman movie fans will know that he became the King of Atlantis in the final moments of the movie after defeating Orm, the Ocean Master. For those asking, Vulko and Mera will be on hand to support him in his work as the King of Atlantis as well. Both characters were present in the Aquaman movie.
That’s not all, the official details also mentions that:
“Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the trident.”
It Will Be Produced By Plenty Of People With DC Backgrounds
Head of original content for HBO Max, Sarah Aubrey says that:
“This DC property is a fan-favorite rich with well-known characters and dynamic storylines. On the heels of Warner Bros. Pictures’ box office smash hit, we are certain ‘Aquaman: King of Atlantis’ will be an exciting addition to our already robust slate of kids and family programming.”
The series is executive produced by James Wan, Atomic Monster’s Michael Clear (Annabelle Comes Home), Rob Hackett (Swamp Thing) and Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!). Victor Courtright (ThunderCats Roar!) and Marly Halpern-Graser (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will serve as showrunners and co-executive producers.
