- Creature Commandos, the animated TV show from James Gunn’s DC Universe, is set to arrive on Max in fall 2024.
- Sean Gunn is excited for the audience to finally see Creature Commandos.
- The release of Creature Commandos on Max is highly anticipated.
Sean Gunn teases when Creature Commandos, the first project from James Gunn’s DC Universe, is finally arriving on Max. The DCEU movie timeline has finished its run, but Gunn’s DC Universe is getting ready to replace it. While Gunn’s Superman: Legacy will be the first DC Universe movie to arrive in 2025, the franchise is getting a soft start in 2024 with the animated Creature Commandos series.
At this year’s Saturn Awards, during an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Gunn spoke about what is coming up for him in terms of new movies and TV shows. One of the projects he is part of is the Creature Commandos cast, as he gave an update on what part of 2024 viewers should expect to see on Max, sharing the following:
We have Creature Commandos coming out in the fall, which is amazing, I just can’t wait for our audience to see [it.]
26 DCU Rumors That James Gunn Has Debunked So Far
James Gunn has been very active on social media as DC Studios’ co-CEO, and he has debunked several major DCU rumors about Superman, Batman, and more.
Everything We Know About The Creature Commandos TV Show
A handful of details for Creature Commandos have already been confirmed, despite the fact that there hasn’t yet been a trailer released for the show. Creature Commandos, based on a team of military metahumans, will be set in the present time rather than World War II, which is where the group originated from in the comics. Creature Commandos season 1 will consist of seven episodes, which were all written by Gunn.
One of the biggest Creature Commandos reveals in recent months is that the DC Universe animated adventure will mark the debut of a major Wonder Woman villain. The Witcher’s Anya Chalotra will be voicing the animated DCU version of Circe, who is one of Diana Prince’s more recognizable foes in the comics. As Gunn has stated previously, anyone who plays a role through DC Studios-produced animated projects will also play their live-action counterpart, which means Circe could be featured in future DC Universe movies and TV shows.
Max, Warner Bros. TV, and DC Studios have yet to issue an official announcement for the exact Creature Commandos premiere.
Given that Creature Commandos is reportedly targeting fall for their release window, it wouldn’t be shocking if the marketing for the series begins in earnest sometime around April or May, as they carry it into summer. While it remains to be seen if DC Studios will be at San Diego Comic-Con this July, promoting Creature Commandos at that event would be a huge opportunity for the DCU series to gain more hype nearer to its release. Hopefully, more updates about Creature Commandos will emerge following Gunn’s recent comments.
