HBO Max Releases a New Synopsis For Aquaman: King of Atlantis

New Aquaman: King of Atlantis details have made their way to the surface world. HBO Max (via CBR) has released a new synopsis for its upcoming animated series featuring the aquatic superhero.

King of Atlantis will consist of three episodes and finds Arthur Curry navigating his new role as the ruler of the titular undersea kingdom. The show was originally announced at the beginning of 2020, with Aquaman director James Wan also on board as an executive producer. Fans also got their first look at the animation style in a sizzle reel that made the rounds earlier this year. So far, the response to the character designs have been mixed. Regardless, it is now confirmed that King of Atlantis will air on Cartoon Network as well as HBO Max.

You can read the new synopsis for King of Atlantis below:

“The three-part animated mini-series event begins with Aquaman’s first day on the job as king of Atlantis and he’s got a LOT of catching up to do. Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water-controlling warrior-princess. Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the trident!
