Creature Commandos’ James Gunn Gives New Story Details, Explains Peacemaker Connection

James Gunn has shared new plot details for Creature Commandos.

In a video message displayed at the Annecy Animation Festival on Friday, June 14, via The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn spoke about Creature Commandos, the animated DCU series that will premiere on Max this December.

“It’s a cornerstone of the legacy we’ve been entrusted to carry at DC Studios and plays an integral role in the vision for our future storytelling,” Gunn said. “Since taking the reins, our true north has been to bring DC film, TV, animation and gaming into alignment under a single banner and bring a sense of unity and consistency into the DCU as a whole. This frees us to create a range of products that are diverse and compelling, and deliver great stand-alone entertainment experiences on every medium, while also being part of a larger story that we’re telling within our unified DCU.”

He added, “What this means in practical terms is that our characters can move in and out of animation or jump into a game or onto the big screen, but they will remain consistent throughout: same character, same history, same actor.”

James Gunn explains how Creature Commandos connects to Peacemaker

Gunn further revealed that Creature Commandos will pick up “directly” after the events of the Peacemaker Season 1 finale.

“[The Peacemaker finale] leaves Waller with her hands tied operationally, meaning that she’s no longer able to get away with putting human lives on the line to carry out her clandestine morally questionable missions,” Gunn explained. “Instead, she recruits a ragtag band of misfits, not unlike the Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.”

Creature Commandos is different from Suicide Squad and Peacemaker because the team is “actual literal monsters,” Gunn continued. He added, “I can’t wait for you to meet them. Creating this series has been one of the absolute joys of my life.”

The voice cast of Creature Commandos includes Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr., Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Indira Varma as the Bride of Frankenstein, Zoë Chao as Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Doctor Phosphorus, David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein, Sean Gunn as G.I. Robot and Weasel, Steve Agee as John Economos, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Anya Chalotra as Circe.
