Jeffrey Dean Morgan's tenure as complex villain Negan on AMC's The Walking Dead recently came to an end (though he will reprise the role for upcoming spin-off, Dead City), and the actor now appears to have lined up his next project.
Morgan has seemingly teased a mysterious voice acting role in the upcoming second season of Prime Video's adult animated Invincible adaptation.
Though nothing has been made official just yet, the Watchmen actor took to social media (via Toonado.com) to share a photo of himself with volumes 2 and 3 of the Invincible graphic novel in the foreground. The caption reads: "Doing a little reading. Thanks to” #robertkirkman."
The show's Twitter account also posted the image, adding: "Just a man reading the best superhero comic in the universe, nothing else to see here!!!"
We have no idea which character Morgan will play, but there are numerous possibilities. The most popular theories online seem to be Conquest, Space Racer, and General Kregg.
"From The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and based on the Skybound/Image comic of the same name by Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an hour-long, adult animated superhero show that revolves around seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems."
Invincible's voice cast features (deep breath):
Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) as Debbie Grayson, Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as Art Rosebaum, Seth Rogen (An American Pickle) as Allen the Alien, Gillian Jacobs (Community) as Samantha Eve Wilkins/Atom Eve, Andrew Rannells (Black Monday) as William Clockwell, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) as Amber Bennett, Walton Goggins (Vice Principals) as Cecil Stedman, Jason Mantzoukas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as Rex Sloan/Rex Splode, Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley) as Donald Ferguson/Doc Seismic, Khary Payton (Young Justice) as Black Samson, Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Beyond) as Robot, Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries) as Kate Cha/Dupli-Kate, and Grey Griffin (Scooby-Doo) as Shrinking Ray.
Invincible season 2 hasn't been given an exact premiere date, but we recently got confirmation that the show will return to our screens at some point this year.
