Although Comic-Con@Home is just a few days away, The Walking Dead co-creator, Robert Kirkman, isn’t waiting to make news. Via EW, Kirkman used his Skybound Expo virtual con to reveal that Zachary Quinto and Khary Payton have joined the cast of Invincible. The upcoming Amazon Prime animated series is based upon Kirkman’s 2003 comic book that he co-created with artist Cory Walker.
Kirkman didn’t say who Quinto and Payton would play, but he did share intel about the previously announced cast members. Steven Yeun is headlining the series as Mark Grayson, a 17-year old who comes into his powers as Invincible. J.K. Simmons will voice Mark’s father, Omni-Man.
Deadpool 2 standout Zazie Beetz will portray Mark’s ex-girlfriend, Amber Bennett; with Gillian Jacobs as Atom Eve, a superheroine who has Mark’s heart. Additionally, Seth Rogen will voice Allen the Alien, with Jason Mantzoukas as Rex Splode, and Walton Goggins as Cecil Stedman.
Mark Hamill will also have a role in the series as Art, a tailor who creates costumes for superheroes. Andrew Rannells will step into the role of William Clockweel, Mark’s best friend.
The original Invincible comic book ran from 2003 to 2017, with 144 issues. The series was notable for its unflinching violence and adult themes, both of which will be retained in Amazon’s adaptation. However, Amazon has yet to announce a premiere date for the eight-episode first season.
