Invincible Audio Teasers Offer Clues to Upcoming Episodes
If you're reading this then i's pretty safe to say that you've already taken a deep dive into Amazon Prime's adult animation adaptation of Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker's Invincible. That also means you know by now that Kirkman wasn't kidding when he said they wouldn't be pulling any punches bringing the comics to life- every violent, bloody panel of it. And by the end of the first episode, that became painfully apparent (as if someone was working through some serious TWD issues). But with the series going one episode per week after a three-episode debut, we wanted to pass along something Kirkman clued everyone into on Friday. Amazon released seven audio previews for seven of the main cast members, but what many folks probably didn't realize until the series' co-creator gave them the heads-up is that there are clues and details for upcoming episodes buried within- so definitely worth a listen if you want to say ahead of the game (and you're not up on the comics).
So for a listen to Steven Yeun as Mark Grayson/Invincible, JK Simmons as Nolan Grayson/Omni-Man, Zachary Quinto as Robot, Gillian Jacobs as Atom Eve, Zazie Beetz as Amber Bennett, Sandra Oh as Debbie Grayson, and Mahershala Ali as Titan as well as some possible clues to what's still to come, check out the following teasers:
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, Sandra Oh as Debbie Grayson, 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.
