Creature Commandos is a highly-anticipated animated series for the DC Universe. With the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes continuing on due to studios refusing to pay their artists, James Gunn assures fans that this particular DC Studios show won’t be delayed.
As the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes continue on, it seems as though every project fans have been excited about has been delayed due to the AMPTP refusing to come to an agreement with their actors and writers. Luckily, it seems as though one DC Universe project has avoided this fate. When asked when fans would get more news on Creature Commandos, James Gunn promised surprises coming down the pipeline, as animation is separate from the ongoing strikes:
According to the National Association of Voice Actors (or NAVA), SAG-AFTRA members are allowed to voice act as long as the production is not a feature-length animated film, trailer, narration, or voice replacement/matching. This allows Creature Commandos to forge on entirely unimpeded at DC Studios. Though given the recent string of box office failures, fans can only hope James Gunn has a plan to save the DC Universe beyond the creepy, kooky, and altogether ooky.
