‘Creature Commandos’: Full Cast Of First DC Universe Series Revealed

The hierarchy of weirdness is about to change...

Creature Commandos

Creature Commandos is set to be the first project in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe, as well as the first animated project to tie into the main line of DCU films. While not much has been released about the show, a full cast list has been officially revealed by Collider.

Fans already knew that Sean Gunn would be reprising his role as Weasel from The Suicide Squad, with the character being the only returning villain for the series. It was also recently revealed that Frank Grillo would play Rick Flag Sr. in the series.

Joining Sean Gunn and Frank Grillo are Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Indira Varma as The Bride, Zoe Chao as Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Dr. Phosphorus, and David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein. Sean Gunn will also be taking on the role of G.I. Robot in the series and will be joined by fellow The Suicide Squad alum Steve Agee, who is set to return as John Economos.

Given the new DC Universe is set to keep actors consistent across animated and live-action projects, there are a number of interesting choices in the revealed cast. For instance, Bakalova has previously worked with James Gunn as the voice of Cosmo in the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and is set to reprise her role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Given their close working relationship, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bakalova appear in another DCU project as Princess Rostovic.

What is interesting is David Harbour’s Frankenstein casting. While Harbour’s obligations to Stranger Things will be ending with its upcoming fifth season, the actor is also committed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Red Guardian in the upcoming Thunderbolts film. While actors often cross multiverse lines between Marvel and DC, they don’t often play two ongoing roles at once. Given Frankenstein’s rich history with the DCU, could this spell disaster for Red Guardian in Thunderbolts?

The future of the DC Universe

James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room and a unified storyline across film, teleivsion, animation and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.

The FlashBlue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
