    So I guess we know what DC project Susan Eisenberg was teasing around this time last year. Pretty neat that they included her.

    However, that trailer doesn't seem to be working for me.

    I like some of the casting choices, such as Susan Eisenberg as Mera and Fred Tatasciore as Lobo. I also like some of the role reprisals such as Alyson Stoner as Batgirl, Jonathan Adams as Atrocitous, and Cristina Milizia as Jessica Cruz. Also, Dee Bradley Baker finally gets a starring role for a project.



    The movie will be written by Jim Krieg and Jeremy Adams, and directed by Matt Peters.

    This looks like it will be really fun, and it's awesome to see Aquaman taking a headlining role in an animated feature :).

    Although I see the writers just couldn't resist the Aquaman jokes :p.

    Dee Bradley Baker isn't my ideal choice for Aquaman, but I think he should be a solid fit here and it's nice to see him in a leading role since that's pretty rare for him these days :proud:.

    It's cool to see them using Jessica as the GL here, getting her more out there, and I guess it looks like Cristina Miliza is her official VA more or less. She would also make the third GL we've seen in these movies ;).

    Nice to get some continuity with Batgirl and Robin coming back :cool:.

    Susan Eisenberg as Mera isn't a huge jump from Wonder Woman, though I was a little disappointed we didn't get to see her much in the trailer. Hopefully she plays a major role in the movie :D.

    Eric Bauza is an...interesting choice for Jimmy Olsen :sweat:.

    Really happy to see Jonathan Adams reprising Atrocitus :evil:.

    Fred Tatasciore's Lobo will probably be a lot like John DiMaggio's, though Trevor Devall as Ocean Master should be fun :anime:.

    Fun little coincidence:

    Lego DC Super Heroes - Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis has Aquaman (and the Justice League) versus Atrocitus.

    Lego Marvel Super Heroes - Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda has Black Panther (and the Avengers) versus Thanos.

    Both will be released this summer. :p

    1. Kind of interesting how they got Alyson Stoner to reprise Batgirl rather than Sarah Hyland. Though I guess it helps she worked with Lisa Schaffer before. Same with Jonathan Adams.

    2. I figured they would've gotten Kath Soucie to reprise Mera, which wouldve been the second time after Spectacular Spider-Man where she and Dee Bradley Baker played a couple.

    3. Eric Bauza did voice Jimmy for his cameo in the Lego Flash movie.

    4. It's been awhile since I heard Ocean Master's voice, though I figured Trevor Devall might use his King Henrick voice from Sofia The First.

    It would've been even funnier if the League was fighting Darkseid again, though Jonathan Adams was the voice of JLA Darkseid :p.

    Noticed on the Amazon pre-order page, their cover image additionally notes it comes with a Jessica Cruz LEGO minifig.

    A trend that's happened since Attack Of The Legion Of Doom is to add in a subplot of the younger/more inexperienced heroes. The aforementioned movie gave Cyborg considerable focus. Cosmic Clash did this for SuperGirl. Gotham City Breakout did this for Robin, Nightwing, and Batgirl. Lego Flash gave great emphasis to Atom's conflict due to him joining in that movie. With that in mind, we could also get a plot here involving either Jessica, Batgirl, and/or Robin.

    Well, the thing with these movies is that the roster for the league is like this: the big three (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman), Cyborg (due to target audience appeal and minority appeal), and the rest of the roster rotating between new/regular members or honorary members (those nor formally in the league, but still fighting alongside them). Atom could still appear in this movie since Eric Bauza (who voices Jimmy Olsen and Atom) is in the movie.

    The movie comes out on July 31.

    Coupled with Gotham City Breakout and The Flash, that would make consecutive appearances by Poison Ivy in these films, with Marshall reprising the role all three times :D.

    If I had to guess, she'll probably show up during Lobo's attack or as one of the random assortment of villains who pop up in the films before the main threat shows up...

    I noticed how the last few seconds of the trailer had Ocean Master say to Aquaman "You have a world to save.". Maybe he'll also have an arc where he joins Atrocitus as his partner, but then pulls a heel face turn to help Aquaman.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's like when Ocean Master and Black Manta teamed-up in Brave and the Bold and Manta endangered Atlantis enough to where Ocean Master sided with the heroes to stop him ;).

    Looks like Warner Brothers and Lego are really amping up the DC content this year, especially with a Lego DC Villains game rumored for a 4th quarter release. Hopefully we get a couple more movies in 2019.
