Liam McIntyre On How To Voice Aquaman In ‘Justice Society: World War II’

by Erik Amaya

While there are a handful of accepted ways to play Aquaman — John DiMaggio‘s Hercules-like King of the Seas from Batman: The Brave and The Bold comes to mind — voice actor Liam McIntyre had an unusual challenge on Justice Society: World War II in figuring out the voice of a Golden Age Arthur. In the following video, McIntyre discusses the sorts of qualities that specific version of Aquaman needs and how to draw it out of one’s own voice. He also talks about the right attitude to strike with the character and the film’s take on the DC Universe over all.

The film sees Aquaman and the rest of the Justice Society encountering future Flash Barry Allen (Matt Bomer) just as their mission in Europe hits a critical phase. Stana Katic, Armen TaylorOmid AbtahiMatthew Mercer and more also lend their voices to the heroes of the Golden Age. Although the film is already available on digital platforms, it comes to disc formats tomorrow with special features including a new DC Showcase short centering on Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth; behind-the-scenes looks at Justice Society and the next DC Universe Animated movie, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One; and an assortment of vintage animated series episodes and featurettes.
