January 15, 2015: More Video Interviews for "Justice League: Throne of Atlantis"Print

Rennie Cowan (from Krypton Chronicles) attended the January 12 West Coast Premiere of "Justice League: Throne of Atlantis" on behalf of the Superman Homepage, where she conducted red carpet interviews with the cast and crew of the highly-anticipated DC Universe Animated Original Movie arriving from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Here are interviews with character designer Phil Bourassa and dialogue voice director Andrea Romano:

Throne of Atlantis Blu-ray In Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Cyborg discovers an imminent threat in the depths of the oceans so powerful that it rallies together the newly formed Justice League.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League must band together as they face off against warmongering Orm, an army of sea creatures, otherworldly weapons and perilous odds. In this all-new epic adventure from the DC Universe, mankind's only hope of escaping from the darkness lies with the guiding light of a man - Aquaman!

The celebrity laden cast features primetime television stars Matt Lanter (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, 90210) at Aquaman, Sam Witwer (Being Human, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Orm, Jason O'Mara (Terra Nova, Vegas, Life on Mars) as Batman, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) as Flash, Nathan Fillion (Castle) as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Rosario Dawson (Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Jerry O'Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me) as Superman, Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as Shazam, Sumalee Montano (Beware the Batman, Transformers Prime) as Mera, Sirena Irwin (Superman: Unbound) as Queen Atlanna, and Harry Lennix (Man of Steel, The Blacklist) as Manta.

January 15, 2015: DC Comics Inspired Casino in ChinaPrint

Casino Macau's Studio City has licensed an 'unrivaled portfolio' of DC Comics and Warner Bros. characters to build a new $3.2 billion resort opening in the Chinese city of Macau.

    The complex is set to open in mid-2015, with a "Batman Dark Flight" attraction billed as an "action-packed motion ride" that lets visitors "fly through Gotham City, following Batman ... as he brings some the most notable Super-Villains from his Rogue's Gallery to justice." Other DC Comics superheroes have also been licensed for Studio City - children can "[climb] on structures with Batman and Superman and [drive] go-karts with Wonder Woman and The Flash."

    Attractions are even built into the building itself, with the resort's creators Melco Crown Entertainment claiming that a 130-meter-high ferris wheel located in the building's central tower was inspired by the image of "two asteroids shooting through a Gotham City building."

January 14, 2015: "Justice League: Throne of Atlantis" Animated Movie ReviewPrint

Throne of Atlantis Blu-ray By Rennie Cowan

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis is the sequel to Justice League: War. On the night of January 12, 2015, I had the pleasure of attending the Los Angeles premiere and by the close of the film I felt I got a good feeling for who Aquaman was. The first thing you have to keep in mind is that it is an Aquaman movie, not a Justice League movie. Sure, the Justice League name is on it. The name is on the poster. It's on the box. We see the Justice League characters in the movie. But it's an Aquaman origin movie in all it's right based off the Geoff Johns' Aquaman (and Justice League run). You are not going to get a whole lot of meat with the other characters. It's about Aquaman. I find it refreshing to see, because let's face it, Aquaman has been one of the lesser developed characters in the DC Universe. It wasn't until Geoff Johns revived him in the New 52 that we really got an Aquaman with some kick-butt glory. And don't worry, you won't see the seahorse. This is an origin film that takes you on a journey into Arthur Curry's life. He is a troubled young man, half human and half Atlantean. Mera appears as the love interest, and Aquaman has no problem with love.

What I find great about this film is that DC is starting to realize that there is a market and interest for the other, lesser characters. They've done Superman, and done Superman and done Superman, and they've done Batman, and done Batman and done Batman. But let's face it, Batman/Superman...we have the movie coming out in 2016. Do we really have to keep seeing these two again and again as the capstone stars? Batman and Superman can get run into the ground, and eventually to the point to where you just want to see something more than that psychology. Green Lantern had his spotlight recently, and Flash got his spotlight with Flashpoint. So it only seems fair to give some of the other characters a chance too.
