James Gunn, co-chair of DC Studios, corrects the misinformation that was recently circulated by the French animation studio behind Creature Commandos.

The French animation company behind Creature Commandos, Bobbypills (Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix), recently released a video displaying their work on the series and simultaneously revealed that the DCU show had been postponed until 2025. 

The animation company working on the program would undoubtedly be the one to know about its current state, right?

Apparently not, as DC Studios co-chair James Gunn has stated that the show HAS NOT been delayed and that it's still on track to premiere in 2024. Check out Gunn's Tweets (...err X's) below. Furthermore, Warner Bros. has already had Bobbypills' video taken down from YouTube.

Previously, Gunn also confirmed that all voice recording for the show was complete and that it was wrapped up before the SAG-AFTRA strike commenced. He also confirmed that the series would be set in modern day.

That's somewhat of a significant change as the members of the creature squad typically originate and operate during the World War II time period. It's possible that there will be a flashback to this setting while the main storyline takes place in the present day. We'll likely have to wait until more promotional material for the series is released to confirm.

J. M. DeMatteis and Pat Broderick's Weird War Tales #93 (November 1980) featured the debut of the original team which consisted of a gorgon, a werewolf, a vampire, a Frankenstein's monster, and a human team captain. That's a slightly different line-up from the roster of monsters that will be featured in Gunn's take.

During World War II, the United States Army developed the unit to carry out tasks that were too dangerous for normal soldiers. The team was made up of monsters since they were thought to be resistant to fear and suffering, as well as being more expendable than regular soldiers. It will be interesting to see how James Gunn differentiates this team from DC's other expendable group of soldiers, the Suicide Squad.

The animated series will hit Max in 2024 and stars David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein/Frankenstein's Monster, Indira Varma as The Bride, Zoe Chao as Dr. Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Dr. Phosphorus, Sean Gunn as Weasel and G.I. Robot, and Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr.

Gunn has previously indicated that the voice actors are all expected to reprise their roles in any live-action appearance.

Another recent but unconfirmed rumor has pegged The Witcher actress Anya Chalotra as playing Circe in the animated series.

Though Creature Commandos will technically be the first new project released by the new DC Studios, Gunn has also previously disclosed that a deeper dive into the new DC canon starts with Superman: Legacy

It would have been better if he announced it was being cancelled.
kazuma - 11/5/2023, 11:55 AM
@Forthas - why?
KennKathleen - 11/5/2023, 12:16 PM
@kazuma -

kazuma - 11/5/2023, 12:37 PM
@KennKathleen - Did anybody care about the Guardians of the Galaxy? Nobody gave a shit about Iron Man or Captain america before those movies released.

So again. Why do you want it cancelled?
Forthas - 11/5/2023, 1:12 PM
@kazuma - ...Cause no one is asking for this!
marvel72 - 11/5/2023, 1:28 PM
@kazuma - Comic fans? Then general audiences.

@Forthas -

I feel like superhero universes are coming to an end.

DCEU, Sony and now MCU has over produced too much shit and mediocre content.

Gunn's universe will fail to launch 🦸.

Forthas - 11/5/2023, 2:50 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - I definitely think the super hero genre is circling the toilet BUT I think the popularity of the Boys, The Batman and Spiderman No Way Home (despite the gimmick) show that there is still hope. There are some signs of life. At Marvel, the Echo trailer was bad ass...they are got rid of the slapstick brothers Taika Waititi and James Gunn...and they have the Xmen/fantastic 4 up their sleeves. they just need two or three wins in a row and thy are back!

DC and Sony are just dead for the foreseeable future!
AmazingFILMporg - 11/5/2023, 2:58 PM
@Forthas -

There's still hope and I'm sure there will be hits but asking me to care for 15 pieces of content a year is just ridiculous 🤡
kazuma - 11/5/2023, 3:16 PM
@Forthas - Why ignore everything that I said before? Nobody was asking for a gotg movie either. Remove the stick from your ass and be happy we're getting new and different shit instead of the same rinse and repeat crap we've been getting.
bobevanz - 11/5/2023, 11:14 AM
Who cares, can we get an article on the review embargo for Marvels lifting THE DAY of it's release?

Origame - 11/5/2023, 11:26 AM
@bobevanz - not until Josh can find a way to spin it to make marvel sound good and smart for doing it 🤣
FireandBlood - 11/5/2023, 11:54 AM
@bobevanz - Wow, they know they’ve got a sure fire miss with this one then 😬
DarthAlgar - 11/5/2023, 12:54 PM
@bobevanz - Now I have to go watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers - The Movie after seeing this.
mountainman - 11/5/2023, 1:02 PM
@bobevanz - You inspired me to check my local theaters to see how many tickets have been sold. It’s really not looking good. Thursday - Saturday, there aren’t more than 12 seats sold in any showing as of yet.
marvel72 - 11/5/2023, 1:40 PM
@bobevanz - I thought it was the day before it's release?

Either way I can't wait for the reviews and seeing how much money it takes.

@bobevanz - Jesus shawty why u had to play this ill begotten song....you'll wake the dead with this type of bullshit...on a Sunday no less 😂
JustAWaffle - 11/6/2023, 8:53 AM
@bobevanz - That’s pretty bad. Have there been any other movies where they’ve done this where it was a surprise win?
SheepishOne - 11/5/2023, 12:37 PM
I hate to say it, but I feel like the DCEU and now MCU are killing interest in the superhero genre altogether. Wouldn't surprise me if CC falls flat on its face, even if it's good. Same with Superman.
FireandBlood - 11/5/2023, 12:43 PM
@SheepishOne - DC flooded the genre with garbage and Marvel got lazy, so people stopped caring.
Forthas - 11/5/2023, 1:10 PM

There is always The Boys universe!
marvel72 - 11/5/2023, 1:44 PM

@Forthas - It's funny that Amazon is now producing better CC quality than both Marvel and DC. With Sony being bipolar lol!
Forthas - 11/5/2023, 3:04 PM
@Kadara - Agreed! The high comedy introduced by James Gunn is what is killing the Marvel brand. The initial Captain Marvel trailers made it look like a childrens Saturday Cartoon come to life. I have said from the very beginning that dramatic narrative is what customers want and the Boys and now Gen V are filling in that gap. If I were Disney I would put the makers of "The Boys" in charge of the X-men franchise.
JustAWaffle - 11/6/2023, 8:57 AM
@Forthas - I don’t know. The team behind The Boys is doing a bang up job, but it all revolves around deconstructing the genre. I don’t think they’d do that necessarily with another property, but if that was their agenda I wouldn’t really like a deconstructed X-Men. I just want to see the OG model done right on screen.
Forthas - 11/6/2023, 9:46 AM
@JustAWaffle - the XMen are supposed to be a commentary on accepting difference in society. I don't think it would be deconstructing the characters as much as providing commentary on social and economic realities which perfectly fits the purpose the X-Men was written.
DocSpock - 11/5/2023, 1:00 PM

Again it all comes down to Superman Legacy. If that movie is great, then they will get a lot of latitude. If it's bad, they are of course FURKED.

Even if CC is good, I don't think it will matter. On this site and among some avid comics readers, animated stuff is a big deal.

But to many(probably a majority) comics readers & mostly all of the general audience doesn't care at all about animated comic book TV shows.

Even if CC is great, it will just be a snack for the rabid animation fans and kids to get all gooey about.

WarMonkey - 11/6/2023, 6:57 AM
@DocSpock - I have consumed like 90% of the DC animated movies ever made and I agree with you. Even if it's amazing it won't matter much like you said, but if it sucks then it could lose a lot of interest in the built-in customer base like me for when Superman comes out. They would lose a lot of positive buzz and good-will.
DocSpock - 11/6/2023, 9:35 AM
@WarMonkey -

Very true.

I feel like Gunn's universe will crash and fail.

Getting audiences to care for a brand new universe where games, animated series, TV and movies are connected is asking for too much from general audience.

JustAWaffle - 11/6/2023, 9:01 AM
@AmazingFILMporg - I kind of see it as a wild card at this point. It could be enough to revitalize things or it could just crash and burn like the Hindenburg. I’m inclined to the latter, but I’m curious to see what they’ll do with this.


EskimoJ - 11/5/2023, 2:12 PM
Damn, so much doom and gloom.

Do CBM fans like anything?
AmazingFILMporg - 11/5/2023, 2:30 PM
@EskimoJ -

I'm still looking forward to MCU stuff and Gunn's superman. But Gunn asking me to care for everything connected like games, comics, animation, tv and movies is a no go.

Reginator - 11/5/2023, 2:26 PM
After experiencing the doom patrol season 4 musical episode, I’m ready to get to the DC reboot.
WarMonkey - 11/6/2023, 7:17 AM
@Reginator - Oh no. Sounds like I made a good decision to stop watching the show. Season 3 I did not enjoy.
