Creature Commandos: The Witcher Star Anya Chalotra Confirmed as Circe

James Gunn confirmed that "The Witcher" star Anya Chalotra is voicing the role of Circe in Max's upcoming animated series Creature Commandos.

With all of the big news lately surrounding Superman: Legacy, let's not forget that DC Studios' James Gunn & Peter Safran's new DCU kicks off this year with the animated series based on writer J. M. DeMatteis & artist Pat Broderick's Creature Commandos. The role call for the adult animated series (and any potential live-action takes) includes Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr., with Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Indira Varma as The Bride, Zoe Chao as Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Dr. Phosphorus, David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein, and Sean Gunn as G.I. Robot & Weasel, and Steve Agee returning as John Economos. And now, thanks to Gunn's response on Threads, we can add Anya Chalotra (The Witcher) to the cast in the role of Circe – one of the more prominent villains in Wonder Woman's rogues gallery. In addition, Gunn added that "there are other cool characters in the show played by other cool actors" alongside the series regulars who were previously introduced.

In the DC Comics universe, the character was first introduced in Wonder Woman #37 (September/October 1949), created by writer Robert Kanigher with artwork by Harry G. Peter. Here's a look at Gunn's social media response from earlier today:

Creature Commandos: J. M. DeMatteis on James Gunn's DCU Approach

"James [Gunn] and I had a very nice conversation about 'Creature Commandos' and other things…but that's all it was: a pleasant conversation. I'm not involved in any upcoming projects," DeMatteis shared in a tweet/x earlier this evening. But in a follow-up tweet/x, DeMatteis made sure to let everyone know that the DCU is in "great hands" with Gunn, adding, "Let me add that I think the DC TV/movie universe is in great hands with James Gunn. He's a fan. He understands and respects the source material and the creators." Here's a look at DeMatteis' tweets from back in October 2023:

First introduced in Weird War Tales #93 (November 1980), the comic book series focused on Frankenstein's monster teaming with a werewolf, a vampire, and a gorgon to fight Nazis in World War II. The series has the distinction of being the first DCU project that Gunn & Safran gave the green light to (with Gunn having penned the series) and the first from DC Studios that will hit screens. In addition, the series is being cast with voice actors who could also play their characters in a live-action project down the road.
