During the ongoing 2024 Annecy International Animation Film Festival, WB revealed that Creature Commandos would arrive sometime in December 2024. The series, which will act as the kickoff to the new DC Universe, is an adaptation of J.M. DeMatteis and Pat Broderick’s comic series.

While not much else was announced regarding the project, Warner Bros. Discovery is set to have a dedicated panel for the show at the festival later this week, potentially revealing more about the show.

The series’ voice cast includes Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr., Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Indira Varma as the Bride of Frankenstein, Zoë Chao as Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Doctor Phosphorus, David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein, Sean Gunn as G.I. Robot and Weasel, Steve Agee as John Economos, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Anya Chalotra as Circe.

Creature Commandos will be the first official project in Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU. Following the series, Superman, which is written and directed by Gunn, will be released in July 2025.
