DC Studios co-head James Gunn took to Twitter to put an end to rumors that former Superman actor Henry Cavill is voicing Frankenstein in the upcoming animated series Creature Commandos. Gunn, who wrote the series as part of the “Gods and Monsters” chapter of the DC Universe, debunked the rumors, stating that Cavill’s involvement in the project is purely speculation.

Creature Commandos was recently revealed as part of James Gunn’s and Peter Safran’s DC Universe slate. The animated series follows a team of supernatural soldiers as they embark on dangerous missions to save the world from evil forces.

In his message, James Gunn further stated that Frankenstein has already been cast with his first choice for the role. Fans of DC Universe will have to wait for the official announcement to find out who it is, but one thing’s for sure: Henry Cavill is not involved with Creature Commandos.

The Creature Commandos were created by J. M. DeMatteis and Pat Broderic, with the team making its first appearance in the pages of 1980’s Weird War Tales #93. Their leader General Matthew Shrieve made an appearance in the third season of The CW’s Arrow, with Marc Singer bringing the character to life.

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.

Shazam! Fury of the GodsThe 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.
