thorhulk77 - 7/22/2013, 8:01 AM
Cant believe they replaced Aquaman
thorhulk77 - 7/22/2013, 8:02 AM
John's run current run on Justice League and Aquaman have shown Aquaman to be extremely powerful and a badass... smh
GoILL - 7/22/2013, 8:03 AM
Gonna watch this before WB take it down.
RamonSuarez - 7/22/2013, 8:03 AM
So...does this mean DCE will be reluctant to use Darkseid for a future JLA movie?
BANEofExistence - 7/22/2013, 8:06 AM
And so they decided to replace Aquaman with Shazam? What the hell
superherofan21 - 7/22/2013, 8:08 AM
I really like O'Mara's Batman voice. Very similar to Conroy's.
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 8:09 AM
I'm so hot for this right now! Oh and Aquaman better freaking be in this
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/22/2013, 8:10 AM
This better not be the start of only New 52 animation films now. Let's just keep this it's own thing and go back to the original comics.
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 8:12 AM
Wait WAIT. They're replacing Aquaman with... Shazam? OH MY GOD, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME DC!!! WHY THE HELL DON'T YOU LIKE YOUR OWN CHARACTER THAT YOU PUT IN THE ORIGINAL COMIC?! BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO ME YOU HATE AQUAMAN, BUT HE'S AMAZING. WHY HATE AQUAMAN, WHY?!!!!

My caps lock rant is over... [frick]ing DC
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:12 AM
@LEVITIKUZ

Conroy is overused, let them have new people.
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 8:14 AM
I guess they're gonna totalllyyy DISREGARD the whole Shazam build up like in the comics. I mean COME ON! He just now has interacted with the League after the start of Trinity War! What the hell is wrong with you DC?!!!

Wingding sad :(
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:15 AM
@Wingding

Wow overreacting much? :/

@MAC

You do know Fillion has other duties, hes not just sitting on his ass and waiting for these guys to call him and he has other obligations.
RamonSuarez - 7/22/2013, 8:16 AM
@MartianAbominationClone

Yeah, but they were already doing that with Teen Justice so there's no real big deal if they use this film as a launching pad for other animated features and/or shows. To be honest, who cares? Lets talk about the medium EVERYONE is waiting to see which is movies.

Will DCE be reluctant to go the Darkseid route for a JLA movie (if they ever make one soon) because of the similarities with this story? I remember when JL Unlimited was on and Warner Bros. put an embargo on using Batman characters for that cartoon because they were afraid that Dini would steal potential storylines for what became Nolan's reboot.
JoeMomma29 - 7/22/2013, 8:18 AM
Awwww Aquaman never ever gets the love.
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:19 AM
@RamonSuarez

No the bat embargo was put on place because DC were essentially thinking we were all idiots and couldn't discern that The Batman show was separate from the Justice League Batman who was separate from the Nolan Batman all 3 of which existed at the same time at that point. So they put that dumbass embargo on villains because they thought we were too stupid to know these were 3 different Batmen and 3 different continuities.
typicalfanboy - 7/22/2013, 8:25 AM
I really hate how they keep shoving characters at us like cyborg and vibe. Really? Cyborg is a Titan. Forever. Just because he was on the 80s Superpowers team show doesn't mean he needs to come back. Also who's playing aquaman?
bluedude - 7/22/2013, 8:25 AM
not excited for the voice talents
other than wonder woman flash and cyborg
kevin conroy IS batman
nathan fillion IS hal jordan
tim daily IS superman
why ef with that
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:27 AM
@MartianAbominationClone

No Wonder Woman having her amazon show would mean you cant use WW or her villains in an animated series. They still could in a movie.
Dev7 - 7/22/2013, 8:27 AM
Flaspoint paradox was crap, hope this is at least better.
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:29 AM
Oh god here comes more bitching about the voice talent.... Has it occurred to you people your picks are too busy with other things or simply aren't interested?
Nivekian - 7/22/2013, 8:29 AM
New 52, just an example of people trying to remake something already cool, more modern & cooler. And in effect killing the coolness.
Dev7 - 7/22/2013, 8:30 AM
How am I anti-DC? I loved some of the past DC animated movies but paradox was complete garbage, it was too rushed and they tried to cram alot of story into that 90 minutes.
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 8:31 AM
@ekrolo2

Do you read Justice League in The New 52? If not than you have no room to speak. Aquaman IS one of the founding members of the team, his intro was completely bad ass. Starting in issue #7 they began a Shazam BACKUP story which featured his origin. It was continually building up with Black Adam going after Billy, then in issue #21 Shazam's backup ended and he was finally introduced to the team in issue #22 (the start of Trinity War). So yeah, Shazam is important too, but Aquaman is WAY more important and it's frustrating that they're actually going to replace such a big character. For some people that's like replacing Manhunter with Cyborg (which they did), or it would be like replacing Flash with Shazam. Because Aquaman is just as important as Flash.

@JoeMomma29

I know! It's ridiculous :(
bluedude - 7/22/2013, 8:32 AM
maybe theyll adapt some new 52 aquaman
i havent been able to read any yet but i hear great things
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:35 AM
@Wingding

Yeah I have been reading the New 52 Justice League and Ive been loving it since it started, I don't like that Aquaman got cut out but me bitching about it and saying my life is over because of it wont change jack shit. And them putting in he Shazam origin in this movie would be overkill, its too long and needs a whole film dedicated to it and whose to say they wont do this? As for replacing Cyborg with Manhunter I really dont care as I have never liked Manhunter at all so him being gone is a plus in my book.

@MAC

Arrow is awesome dude, I love that version of GA.
MJPETTY7 - 7/22/2013, 8:35 AM
Wait, Shazam instead of Aquaman? REALLY?!?!?!?!?!
batnerd04 - 7/22/2013, 8:40 AM
Really? You show Aquaman's picture in every panel they took from the comic but he's not even included in the movie? That's not cool, I want to see more of that dude, to me he's cooler than Cyborg. Aquaman deserves a damn chance people! If you want a successful Aquaman movie test it out....
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 8:40 AM
@ekrolo2

I'm glad you like it. So then you know it makes no sense to have Shazam in the origin...
And I didn't say my life was over, comics aren't my life actually. Lol. I totally agree Shazam needs his own movie. But that would come after War because the backup didnt start till issue #7. I guess I just don't get WHY they replaced Aquaman. It's confusing to me. I'm actually liking Cyborg as a main member as well, that was just an example. If you read JLA you can see how bad ass Manhunter is though.
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:42 AM
@MAC

If you honestly think Marvels doing this cosmic stuff because they want to use an underutilized aspect of their universe then you're crazy, the only reason this whole Marvel cosmic thing is being done is because Thanos was in Avengers so in typical modern day Marvel fashion they need to pander to the movie crowd. See thats what Marvel does thanks to the MCU, if its in the movies they need to make the comics just like them no matter how contrived or stupid it is, case in point Nick Fury Jr.
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 8:43 AM
@MJPETTY7 @batnerd04

Exactly how I feel. If they don't ever put faith in Aquaman in animated movie form, then we are never getting him in a live action movie. Which would be a shame.
ekrolo2 - 7/22/2013, 8:43 AM
@Wingding

Maybe the origin stuff is a prequel to War? That seems like the logical thing to do. My only exposure to MM was the animated series (Ive only been reading comics for a couple of years since the New 52 and I have missed out on a LOT) and he was really bland for me in that show, he was kinda cool in YJ though.
JatevinM - 7/22/2013, 8:52 AM
I'm seriously tired of DC giving Aquaman the shaft.
Chucky2003 - 7/22/2013, 8:53 AM
Looks like DC is out of ideas
FlixMentallo21 - 7/22/2013, 8:58 AM
Aquaman had better be in this before it comes out.

Also, looks like Steven Blum is voicing Darkseid.
FlixMentallo21 - 7/22/2013, 9:03 AM
Also, HOLY MOLEY, it looks like they replaced Aquaman with Shazam!
Wingding - 7/22/2013, 9:05 AM
@ekrolo2

Yeah, maybe so. Even still, in the part with him they showed in the video, he was interacting with Wonder Woman and Supes. Which seems like a continuity screw up...Eh, I guess they're changing the original story. Yeah in the animated series Manhunter was basically the punching bag of the League, lol. But in JLA he is awesome. Since you read Justice League, I assume you remember that fold out picture of MM fighting the League? That was a taste of his bad-assery, as was in issue #20 when he beat up on Despero. Him and Hawkman truly stand out in JLA.
pud333 - 7/22/2013, 9:07 AM
Do you know what would be even better than this? A live action JL movie. Holy crap, WB, get your act together! But I am looking forward to this. I just re-read the trade.
Shara184 - 7/22/2013, 9:10 AM
The only thing that bothered me was the voice of Darkseid, it's Wolverine again. Every character that guy voices I just think "Hey look, it's Wolverine pretending to be someone else"
