The actors may change. The directors may change. But there is one man who’s name you’ll find on nearly every project to come out of the DC Animated Universe since Batman: The Animated Series. No, it’s not Bruce Timm, it’s James Tucker.
Having done everything from character design to storyboards, James has moved to the role of producer in recent years, filling the role of Supervising Producer on many of the DCAU’s movies, including Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, the long-overdue spotlight feature for Aquaman. Based loosly on the comic arc of the same title, Atlantis explores the origins of The King Of The Seven Seas as he learns of his heritage and joins up with the heroes of the JLA.
At New York Comic Con, we had the chance to talk with James about finally bringing Aquaman to the forefront, and translating the Throne of Atlantis arc from page to screen.

Featuring the voices of Matt Lanter, Sean Astin, Rosario Dawson, Jerry O’Connell, Sam Witwer, and Nathan Fillion, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will be available on January 27th, 2015 on Blu-ray, DVD, and via direct download.
Check back soon for more interviews from the crew of Justice League: Throne of Atlantis! And, in case you missed it, you can find our interviews with Aquaman himself, Matt Lanter, and Voice Director Andrea Romano here and here!
