As excited as we're sure fans of Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker's Invincible are to finally get a chance to check out the official trailer for the upcoming Amazon Prime animated adaptation, we have a feeling Kirkman, Walker, and the rest of the team might be just a smidge more excited. First, so they don't have to keep hearing from everyone about when the trailer is dropping. Second, so that viewers can see for themselves what the teaser and preview clips have only hinted at- that the series is offering the same thrills, heartbreak, and jaw-dropping moments that the comic book series became known for. Oh, and the earlier tease was right: Jason Mantzoukas' (I'm Sorry, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) voice really does work for Rex Sloan aka Rex Splode.
Here's your look at the official trailer for Amazon Prime's Invincible, set to premiere on Friday, March 26, with three episodes (followed by weekly drops for the remaining five episodes):
From the comic book co-created by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker, and illustrated by Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an adult animated superhero series that revolves around Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), a normal teenager except for the fact that his father Nolan (J.K. Simmons) is the most powerful superhero on the planet- Omni-Man. Shortly after his seventeenth birthday, Mark begins to develop powers of his own and enters into his father's tutelage. The series is described as suspenseful, action-filled, and emotion-packed, yet builds upon poignant and heartwarming moments of love, friendship, and humanity.
Joining Yuen and Simmons on Invincible are Zachary Quinto as Robot, Khary Payton as Black Samson, Seth Rogen as Allen the Alien, Gillian Jacobs as Atom Eve, Andrew Rannells as William Clockwell, Zazie Beetz as Amber Bennett, Mark Hamill as Art, Walton Goggins as Cecil Stedman, Jason Mantzoukas as Rex Sloan / Rex Splode, Chris Diamantopoulos as Doc Seismic, Malese Jow as Kate Cha / Dupli-Kate, Kevin Michael Richardson as Monster Girl's monster form and the Mauler Twins, Grey Griffin as Shrinking Ray and Monster Girl, Clancy Brown as Damien Darkblood, Djimon Hounsou as the Martian Emperor, Ezra Miller as D.A. Sinclair, Jeffrey Donovan as Machine Head, Nicole Byer as new characters Fiona and Vanessa, Jon Hamm as new character Steve, Jonathan Groff as Rick Sheridan, and Mahershala Ali as Titan.

Kirkman, Racioppa, David Alpert, and Catherine Winder will serve as executive producers along with supervising directors Justin Copeland and Chris Copeland (Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man).
