Flashpoint Paradox Week: Cary Elwes Interview


Cary Elwes talks to ToonBarn about Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox at SDCC 2013

Cary Elwes plays Aquaman in Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, but it’s not the Aquaman who we grew up watching. This Aquaman, along with his fellow Atlanteans, is in the middle of a war with Wonder Woman’s Amazons. A war that Aquaman declared himself, due to circumstances that we don’t want to get into because it may spoil some of the story. This Aquaman is always strong, but you can tell he is conflicted in some way, although he keeps his feelings hidden deep down.

The voice of Aquaman hadn’t been heard before, in any of the Warner Bros Home Entertainment films from the DC Universe. Cary Elwes has now become the standard by which all other actors who may play this character will have to aspire to be. On the other hand, Cary Elwes may have set himself up to play Aquaman for many years to come. Just like the name Kevin Conroy became synonymous with Batman and Mark Hamill with The Joker, so could Cary Elwes’ name be associated with Aquaman. Time will tell.

Cary Elwes certainly wouldn’t mind doing more of these movies, as he told us when we interviewed him for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox at San Diego Comic-Con. He is a fan of the genre, and is thrilled to be a part of it. Having known Andrea Romano, the Casting/Voice Director, for almost 20 years now, Cary Elwes gets the occasional call to let him know what she’s working on. He would certainly love to work with her again on another Justice League movie. We certainly would love that, too.

ToonBarn wants to thank Cary Elwes for our interview at San Diego Comic-Con, and we also have to thank Gary Miereanu and Warner Bros Home Entertainment for the interviews, panel, and screening of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox


Marc Morrell

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
