Amazon’s Invincible, the animated series adaptation to the Robert Kirkman Image Comic, has taken a major step forward today.
The cast for the anticipated project, which revolves on the teenage son of a Superman like hero, was announced. Dang, it’s a really freaking great cast.
Steven Yeun, formerly of AMC’s The Walking Dead (which also came from Kirkman), will voice the lead character, Mark Grayson. Mark is pretty much like every other guy his age, except his father is Omni-Man. When Mark develops powers of his own, however, he learns his dad’s legacy may not be what it seems.
Voicing Omni-Man will be J.K. Simmons (Counterpart). The rest of the cast, honestly, only gets better from here.
Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, and Mae Whitman have also lent their considerable talents to the venture.
That’s honestly one hell of a cast to assemble, which makes even more excited for the project. Though how much it will follow of Kirkman’s comic remains to be seen at the time.
This is probably the only major news will get on the project for awhile as it is still in development.
The eight-episode series will premiere on Amazon Prime sometime in 2020.
