Actress Anya Chalotra, best known for her mesmerizing portrayal of Yennefer in ‘The Witcher’ TV show and other captivating roles, has recently been announced as the latest addition to the cast of ‘Creature Commandos,’ an animated series set to premiere on HBO Max in 2024. Fans of the talented actress will be thrilled to know she will be lending her voice to the intriguing character, Circe.
So, what exactly is ‘Creature Commandos’? This forthcoming series, produced by giants DC Studios and Warner Bros. Animation, introduces us to a black ops team composed entirely of monsters. These monsters aren’t your everyday sort, though. Assembled by the formidable Amanda Waller, the Creature Commandos is not your average superhero team.
Wow! I had no idea this would blow up I was just excited to share a new role for Anya 😅 for those asking about the source is where we always get them: Anya’s official CV on Spotlight. While I don’t like sharing her CV page like that, I can show a screenshot of where the info is. https://t.co/SV03ACIklt pic.twitter.com/MXOQ4gx2uq— best of anya chalotra (@bestofanyac) November 2, 2023
The creation and direction of this promising series is in the trusted hands of James Gunn, who’s penned all seven episodes. And if you’re familiar with Gunn’s previous work, you can expect this series to bring a fresh perspective to the DC Universe (DCU).
But Anya isn’t the only big name tied to this project. Other cast members include the likes of Frank Grillo, who portrays Rick Flag Sr., the team’s leader and father to the leader of the Suicide Squad. The series will also feature Maria Bakalova, David Harbour (as the charming Eric Frankenstein), Zoë Chao, Alan Tudyk, Sean Gunn (who will voice both G.I. Robot and Weasel), Indira Varma, and Steve Agee. Not to forget, Viola Davis will be reprising her iconic role as Amanda Waller.
The backstory of ‘Creature Commandos’ is fascinating. Originally created for the comic Weird War Tales in 1980, this modern version will see the team battling various challenges in an animated format. From Nazis to new-age villains, expect a roller-coaster of events.
And as we await its release, it’s essential to mention that ‘Creature Commandos’ will kickstart the DCU’s Chapter One: Gods and Monsters. With the series set to be available on the streaming service Max, 2024 promises to be an exciting year for fans of DC and animation alike.
