Last week Revenge Of The Fans reported that Amazon’s upcoming animated series Invincible had a cast. Invincible is based off the Robert Kirkman comic series of the same name. The cast list found included: Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Jason Mantzoukas (John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Andrew Rannells (A Simple Favor), and Chris Dimantopoulos (Silicon Valley).
Now The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed their report, and also revealed that some top-rate talent has joined the cast. J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Sandrah Oh (Killing Eve), Seth Rogen (Sausage Party), Mark Hamill (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Walton Goggins (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Mae Whitman (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), Melise (The Shannara Chronicles), Kevin Michael Richardson (Lilo & Stitch), Grey Griffin (The Loud House), and Max Burkholder (Parenthood) have all joined the cast in unspecified roles.
The series will follow 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Yeun), whose father is Omni-Man (Simmons), the most powerful superhero on the planet. When Mark starts to develop powers of his own, it starts off great, but he soon learns that his father’s legacy isn’t all the heroic.
Robert Kirkman will serve as executive producer under his label Skybound alongside Simon Racioppa (Teen Titans) who will serve as the showrunner for the 8-episode hour-long series.
The live-action film from Universal is still very much in development Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg writing, starring, and producing the film. Kirkman will also be along side, as he is set to deliver this film under his first-look deal with Universal Studios.
The animated series is set to debut on Amazon Prime sometime in 2020. For more on Invincible stay tuned!
