Amazon Prime Video's eight-episode animated adaptation of Robert Kirkman's Skybound/Image comic book Invincible has just unveiled some major updates to its "super" voice cast for the series, joining The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun and Counterpart's J.K. Simmons. At Saturday's Skybound Xpo panel "Skybound: Past, Present & Future," Robert Kirkman and David Alpert offered an update on the project. After promising a trailer "soon," Kirman offered some major updates of the "who's who" of voice actors tapped to appear (or be heard).
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 Splode, Chris Diamantopoulos as Doc Seismic, Melise as Dupli-Kate, Kevin Michael Richardson as Monster Girl's monster form and the Mauler Twins, Grey Griffin as Shrinking Ray and Monster Girl, and others, with more announcements expected soon.
"I couldn't be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years. To know our characters will live on in multiple iterations in other media is almost too exciting to bear! What Amazon is allowing us to do in animated form is nothing short of ground-breaking, and I can't wait for our rabid fan base to experience it!"
– Robert Kirkman
Co-created by Kirkman, Cory Walker and artist Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an adult animated superhero show that revolves around Mark Grayson (Yeun), a normal teenager except for the fact that his father (Simmons) is the most powerful superhero on the planet. 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.
Kirkman, Racioppa, David Alpert, and Catherine Winder will serve as executive producers alongside supervising directors Justin & Chris Copeland (Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man). Skybound is set to produce the series.
