When is the Creature Commandos release date? It’s a new day over at DC Studios, with James Gunn and Peter Safran relaunching the superhero-stuffed universe with a raft of new movie and TV projects.
The first of these new DCU series is perhaps the most intriguing. Creature Commandos is an animated series based on a relatively obscure comic book series from the early ’80s, about a group of monsters who are recruited to fight Nazis. This’ll be the first step in the Gods and Monsters slate, so here’s what you need to know.
Creature Commandos release date speculation
Creature Commandos will be released sometime in 2025.
Creature Commandos was originally set for 2024, but with the delays following the 2023 industry strikes, that simply won’t be possible.
In November 2023, Bobbypills Animation Studios (the company behind the Creature Commandos animation) posted to X, confirming the release would now come in 2025. There’s no exact date set, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
This is technically the first project set in the new DCU, although Gunn claims Superman: Legacy is the first chapter in that story.
Who’s in the Creature Commandos cast?
The Creature Commandos cast includes Indira Varma, Frank Grillo, David Harbour, and Viola Davis.
According to James Gunn, these actors are also set to appear as live-action versions of their DC characters, should future projects call for it.
Here is the Creature Commandos cast list:
- Indira Varma as Bride of Frankenstein
- Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr
- David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein
- Zoë Chao as Nina Mazursky
- James Gunn as G.I Robot
- Alan Tudyk as Doctor Phosphorus
- Sean Gunn as Weasel
- Viola Davis as Amanda Waller
- Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic
- Steve Agee as John Economos
What will Creature Commandos be about?
We know the Bride of Frankenstein is set to be the series lead of Creature Commandos.
Gunn said as much himself when announcing the TV series. Beyond that, we don’t know much about the plot, but we imagine it’ll closely follow the original DC comic.
The basic premise of the comic, which takes place during WWII, is that the Creature Commandos were created as part of a top-secret project known as Project M.
The experiment aimed to create a roster of super-soldiers (No, not those ones) who, through their monstrous appearance and amplified abilities, would inspire fear in their Nazi enemies.
It seems likely that the sci-fi series will follow this chain of events — perhaps through the perspective of Bride of Frankenstein, given she’s meant to be the lead.
Is there a Creature Commandos trailer?
There’s no Creature Commandos trailer just yet, but if the 2025 release date sticks, we expect to see one in late 2024.
We anticipate the ragtag vibe and overall atmosphere of Creature Commandos to match that of the Suicide Squad movies, so why not take a moment to refresh your memory of what that involved with the trailer below?
In the meantime, we’ll keep an eye out for any potential trailer or first-look updates.
Where can I watch Creature Commandos?
You’ll be able to stream Creature Commandos on HBO’s streaming platform Max when the time comes.
We’re hoping that this marks the beginning of a DC TV series universe, though we’ll have to see how well the first series will fare before we get too excited.
How many episodes of Creature Commandos will there be?
There will be seven episodes of Creature Commandos, with each episode being 22 minutes long.
Gunn wrote all seven episodes, so we’re excited to see how this series will play into the rest of the Gods and Monsters phase of the DCU.
