DCU TV series

Creature Commandos is an upcoming American adult animated television series based on DC Comics featuring the eponymous team. Produced by DC Studios and Warner Bros. Animation, it will be the first television series in the DC Universe (DCU) and the first installment overall. It focuses on a black ops team of monsters assembled by Amanda Waller. All seven episodes were written by James Gunn, who serves as showrunner, while Balak Yves serves as supervising director.

Frank Grillo stars as Rick Flag Sr. in the series, alongside Maria Bakalova, Indira Varma, Zoë Chao, Alan Tudyk, David Harbour, Sean Gunn, and Steve Agee. After Gunn and Peter Safran became co-CEOs of DC Studios in October 2022, Gunn began writing a new DCU television series that was revealed to be Creature Commandos in January 2023. Production on the series had begun by then and casting was underway. The cast was announced that April. Animation for the series is provided by Bobbypills.

Creature Commandos is scheduled to debut on the streaming service Max in December 2024. It will be part of the DCU's Chapter One: Gods and Monsters.

Transcription

Premise

Amanda Waller assembles a black ops team of monsters called the Creature Commandos.[1]

Cast and characters

Additionally, Viola Davis reprises her role as Amanda Waller from prior DC media.[1] Anya Chalotra has been cast as Circe.[9][10]

Production

Background

James Gunn was hired in October 2018 to write and direct The Suicide Squad (2021),[11][12] a standalone sequel to the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film Suicide Squad (2016) which retained some cast members but otherwise told its own story.[13] He worked with producer Peter Safran, who also produced the DCEU films Aquaman (2018) and Shazam! (2019).[14] They later expanded The Suicide Squad into a spin-off television series, Peacemaker (2022–present), for the streaming service HBO Max.[15] Warner Bros.' parent company WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc. merged in April 2022 to become Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD), led by president and CEO David Zaslav. The new company was expected to restructure DC Entertainment and Zaslav began searching for an equivalent to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to lead the new subsidiary.[16] Gunn and Safran were announced as the co-chairs and co-CEOs of the newly formed DC Studios at the end of October 2022.[17] A week after starting their new roles, the pair had begun developing an eight-to-ten-year plan for a new DC Universe (DCU) that would be a "soft reboot" of the DCEU.[18][19][20] Gunn and Safran said some cast members would return from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker in the DCU, and a "rough memory" of the events of those projects would remain.[21]

Development

Gunn revealed that he was in the middle of writing a new DCU television series in January 2023.[22] On January 31, Gunn and Safran unveiled the first projects from their DCU slate, which begins with Chapter One: Gods and Monsters. The first project in the slate was Creature Commandos, an animated series for HBO Max's successor, Max, based on a black ops team of the same name featuring various monsters from DC Comics. Gunn had already written the seven episodes and production had begun. It was expected to be released as an "aperitif" for the DCU before the film Superman, which was scheduled for release on July 11, 2025.[3][1] Warner Bros. Animation co-produces the series.[23] Executive producers of the series include DC Studios' Gunn and Safran, Warner Bros. Animation's Sam Register, and Dean Lorey,[24] while Balak Yves and Rick Morales respectively served as the supervising director and supervising producer.[25]

Writing

Created for Weird War Tales #93 (1980) by J. M. DeMatteis and Pat Broderick, the Creature Commandos were originally a team of monsters fighting Nazis during World War II.[3][26] The series depicts a modern version of the team being assembled by Amanda Waller, and consists of the characters Rick Flag Sr., Nina Mazursky, Doctor Phosphorus, Eric Frankenstein, the Bride of Frankenstein, G.I. Robot, and Weasel. Gunn said the Bride of Frankenstein was the lead character of the series.[1] Waller, Weasel, and Flag's son Rick Flag Jr. previously appeared in The Suicide Squad.[3] Grillo described the series as being "hard R" and said the tone was "funny and filthy".[5]

Casting and voice recording

Gunn and Safran said Viola Davis would reprise her role as Amanda Waller from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker in the DCU,[21] and she was confirmed to be voicing the character in Creature Commandos with the series' announcement. Further casting was underway by then, with Gunn and Safran intending to hire actors who could voice the characters in the series and also portray them in live-action DCU projects;[1] as such, actors performed on-camera auditions for the series, instead of voice-over as is common in animation.[27] Casting was almost complete by late February 2023.[28] In April, the cast was announced, with Frank Grillo as Flag,[4] Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic (an original character created for the series),[2][29] Zoë Chao as Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Doctor Phosphorus, David Harbour as Frankenstein, Indira Varma as the Bride of Frankenstein, Sean Gunn as G.I. Robot in addition to returning as Weasel from The Suicide Squad, and Steve Agee reprising his role as John Economos from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.[2][6] James Gunn said Harbour was his first choice for Frankenstein,[30] and that by then, some of the actors were already planned for live-action appearances, with Grillo cast across all DCU media.[29] Voice recording began by May 2023,[8][31] and was completed by that August.[32] In November 2023, Anya Chalotra was reported to have been cast as Circe,[9] which Gunn confirmed in January 2024.[10] Gunn served as the series' voice director for the main actors.[33]

Animation

Production on the series was underway by the end of January 2023. Gunn said animation was a way to "tell stories that are gigantic" without spending $50 million per episode.[3] Animation studio Bobbypills worked on the animation for the series.[34] By February 2024, the initial animatics had been finished and picture locked, while Gunn said "elaborate animated finals" were being worked on.[35]

Marketing

A making-of session and presentation for the series with Yves and Morales will take place at the 2024 Annecy International Animation Film Festival.[25]

Release

Creature Commandos is scheduled to premiere in December 2024,[36] on the streaming service Max.[8] It will be part of the DCU's Chapter One: Gods and Monsters.[3]
