While Superman: Legacy will serve as the official launching platform for the DCU, our first glimpse at this rebooted reality will head our way when Creature Commandos launches on Max in 2024.

Very little has been revealed about the animated series, though we know the actors who lend their voices to the characters here will also portray them in live-action. That's all part of DC Studios' plan to create a shared world that's even more connected than the MCU (these ambitious plans have even called for video games, which take considerably longer to produce than movies and TV shows, to be set in the DCU). 

Now, thanks to artist Meryl Frank (via Toonado.com), we have a first look at concept art from the animated series. 

If this is any indication of what the finished series will look like, Creature Commandos will be like watching a comic book come to life. That's a big difference from Marvel Studios' animated offerings but a style we're sure many of you will be fully on board with. 

It seems both Frankenstein and his love interest, the Bride of Frankenstein, have also gone through some changes since that promo image was released by DC Studios. These may be early, unused, designs, though we're sure you'll agree that the four-armed bride looks absolutely killer.

Gunn has previously said the series will consist of 8 episodes and recently confirmed the Hollywood strikes did nothing to slow production down. Work on Waller, Elseworlds TV series The Penguin, and even The CW's Superman & Lois remains on pause with actors striking, so Creature Commandos may end up being the only DC TV show we get next year. 

Even many hardcore comic book fans aren't overly familiar with this group of freakish heroes, so we're intrigued to see how audiences respond to them. We also can't help but wonder what clues this series will provide when it comes to the DCU's tone and what this new reality looks like. 

Creature Commandos stars Frank Grillo as Rick Flag, Sr., Indira Varma as Bride of Frankenstein, Zoë Chao as Nina Mazursky, David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein, Alan Tudyk as Doctor Phosphorus, Sean Gunn as G.I. Robot and Weasel, Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Steve Agee as John Economos, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.

The series sees Amanda Waller create a black ops team out of monstrous prisoners. Gunn wrote all of the first season's episodes.

While we'd expected a possible delay due to the strikes, it appears Creature Commandos will be released in 2024 as planned.

I honestly keep forgetting that this is a thing.

I liked the art style. Especially if it'll be similar to the art that Gunn released during his DCU announcement.

Oh ok so she has 4 arms? I was like she has THE BIGGEST earlobes I've EVER SEEN!!!!

@Mixedsuperman - Mockups like this will often show characters in more than one pose. I think that's what's going on here, since all the other photos show two arms.

@ClintThaHamster - Not this time. She has four arms. Google helps. 😉

@RolandD - Well, shit, now I'm wondering if I made that up about multiple poses in a single drawing.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@ClintThaHamster - I didn’t go looking for this. I was trying to figure out how DC was able to get away with a Frankenstein monster that looked an awful lot like Boris Karloff when I believe that is trademarked. I wound up seeing pictures of the bride and there you have it. All I found out about Karloff was that in the Wikipedia article on the character it did say he looked all out like the Karloff version.

its nice to see some positive comments

The final product rarely looks like concept (wish that were different), so I doubt we'll actually see this in the show. Hope to be proven wrong though, because this looks really good

This looks like concept art, if Jim Carrey's The Mask was cosplaying Frankenstein.
