In an effort to build excitement for the next DCU cinematic revamp, James Gunn is back on social media, sharing intriguing tidbits with fans.

If you pay close attention to Gunn's posts, you'll notice that he seems to alternate between the franchises for which he teases and releases updates which is probably a deliberate PR ploy on Gunn's part.

On this occasion, Gunn disclosed the member of the show's roster of outsiders and monsters that he is most eager for viewers to meet during Creature Commandos' debut later in 2024.

"The Bride is something special, she's the lead character in a lot of ways, but I love them all," said Gunn in response to a fan question.


Additionally, Gunn stated that viewers should anticipate seeing Frank Grillo's Rick Flag Sr. transition from animation to live-action. Previously, Gunn stated that "some" but not "all" of the cast of Creature Commandos might appear in subsequent live-action DCU productions.

Previously,  David Harbour implied that his Frankenstein's monster character will also be making the jump from animation to live-action. 

Back in November, the Stranger Things star commented, "What we recorded is really great. I’ve seen the art, James is a genius. I think it’s going to be really fun and really exciting, and it opens up a whole new door to the DC Universe of how these characters will occupy the world. I like the concept of a live action and cartoon back and forth."



Gunn also shared that he isn't directing any episodes of Creature Commandos but he did direct the voice recording sessions.


Lastly, when asked how introducing these lesser-known characters compares to how Gunn first introduced the Guardians of the Galaxy, Gunn replied, "Well yes [their introduction will be similar] except a lot more because they get seven episodes of a TV series not one, two hour movie.Every character gets their day in the sun."


Creature Commandos has fought off delay rumors for months, with Gunn recently confirming a late-2024 release window for the Max series [via Threads].  If we had to make a logical guess, it would make sense for Creature Commandos to drop around Halloween.

The 7-episode animated series will stream on Max and stars 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.

Steve Agee will also reprise his Peacemaker role of John Economos.  Viola Davis is also slated to appear as Amanda Waller.

Additionally, Anya Chalotra who plays Yennefer of Veneberg in The Witcher, is rumored to be portraying Wonder Woman villain, Circe in the project. Keep this casting labeled as a rumor for now as it hasn't been confirmed by Gunn.

@harryba11zack - I am slightly disappoint. However, she is pretty. And I am sure her acting will make up for it.

What's most important is story and if it is entertaining.

But oh man, I wish we got some big titty action!

@Goldboink - Thou art a 16 year old teenager trapped in a 61 year old man's body!
The mind is willing, but thine body hath doubts!
Break ye free of thy mental bonds and enjoy the tittays I sayeth unto thee!
