King of Atlantis Animated Miniseries Is Happening at HBO Max with James Wan

Aquaman: King of Atlantis the miniseries is set to HBO Max. James Wan will serve as producer on the project, which is currently in development. Warner Bros. ordered the animated three-part series, which will take place after the events of the blockbuster film Aquaman . The news comes as Aquaman 2 prepares to enter the pre-production phase. Star Jason Momoa has already started training for the aftermath, as evidenced by some recent social media videos.

Aquaman: King of Atlantis should begin with First day of Arthur Curry as king of Atlantis. We see Curry take the throne during the final moments of the 2018 big screen adaptation of the comic book source material. The new king of Atlantis has his two royal advisers to support him – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the warrior princess who controls the water. Aquaman will face the inhabitants of the surface, as well as the continuing family drama, due to his half-brother, Orm Marius, who wants to take control of the throne. Basically, he will need all the help he can get.

As for who will provide the voices in Aquaman: King of Atlantis that is to say unclear at the moment. However, you could easily see the cast of the film, including Jason Momoa, jump on board to lend their talent for three episodes. We also don't know who will write the series. Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max's original content manager, said this about the next animated series.

"This DC property is a fan favorite, rich in well-known characters and dynamic stories. The Warner Bros. Pictures box office was a resounding success, we are certain Aquaman: King of Atlantis will be an exciting addition to our already robust range of programs for children and families. "

As is the case with the possible voice distribution for Aquaman: King of Atlantis it is also unclear whether the animated miniseries will lead directly to Aquaman 2. We could easily see Warner Bros. and DC setting up the sequel, or less connect the first episode to the following, with the miniseries. The franchise Star Wars does it frequently with comics, which creates some confusion when the films are released in theaters. I hope we will have some clarification in the coming months, as well as a casting announcement.

This is all very good news for Warner Bros. and DC, but there's still a lot going on in the next series that we don't know. Either way, DC fans will certainly be very happy with this new series. The miniseries Aquaman: King of Atlantis is produced by James Wan, Atomic Monster & # 39; s Michael Clear ( Annabelle Comes Home ), Rob Hackett ([19459004)] 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 executive co-producers.
