Aquaman Swims to Animated Feature

Over the weekend, Geoff Johns, the Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics, as well as the writer of Justice League and Green Lantern, revealed on his twitter account that Aquaman, a character he wrote before the old DC Universe ended in September of 2011, would get his own animated feature.

Aquaman is a founding member of the Justice League of America and has been a DC Comics stalwart for decades. Originally conceived by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger in 1941, Aquaman became the butt of jokes in the 1990s after a skit on the MTV sketch comedy show, The State, depicted him as all but worthless for his ability to talk to fish.

Johns was able to restore the character to prominence, and Aquaman even held an important role in the Flashpoint event that ended the previous 75 years of the DC Universe.

There is no word when the animated Aquaman film will surface, but stay tooned to Animation Fascination for updates.
