I guess nothing major then. No one has come up with one ,even if it bothers the purists, of an origin for him befitting of a true king.

It could very much be like Star Wars. It could have the advanced Atlantean tech mixed with the mystical/mythological stuff. The Atlantean tech would be interesting to see since it could be mysterious, advanced and ancient at the same time (kind of like Krypton in Man of Steel, but tied to the ocean environment in design and function.)

So there could be great action scenes mixed with strange alien-like creatures, and all the politics/intrigue of Atlantis etc.

In terms of mystical stuff, "Sword of Atlantis" had great art and design and had a lot of "Game of Thrones" style of mythology, and strange creatures etc. Not that they should follow that storyline, but it had a great look.
It would be cool if some Atlantean technology was the start for something we use today or shown to have been used to build the pyramids.
