Creature Commandos star David Harbour has spoken positively about the upcoming DC Universe animated series from James Gunn.
What did David Harbour say about Creature Commandos?
Speaking to Collider before the SAG-AFTRA strike, Harbour opened up about when he first got pitched Creature Commandos and his meeting with DC Studios Co-CEO James Gunn. The actor then described just how funny the show will be.
“I didn’t know what it was when it was sent to me,” Harbour explained. “I met with James, and he sort of laid out a lot of stuff. It’s really exciting. He considers it some of the best stuff he’s ever written. It’s hilarious, and the character is great. I think it’s been announced that it’s Frankenstein, and it’s a very colorful, terrific character. So, yeah, we’ve started to shoot stuff. I’m not one to really break, but during this, it is wildly funny stuff. So, yeah, we’re shooting. It’s hilarious and I can’t wait for people to see it.”
Creature Commandos is the first project of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new DC Universe. The animated series will star Viola Davis, David Harbour, Sean Gunn, Frank Grillo, Indira Varma, Alan Tudyk, Maria Bakalova, Zoë Chao, Steve Agee, and more. The series, which is canon to the wider DCU, will debut in 2024.
The DC Universe’s first phase, called Chapter One: Gods and Monsters, will feature a multitude of different movies and television shows. A few of the announced projects include Superman: Legacy, a Batman and Robin-focused movie called The Brave and the Bold, a Supergirl movie titled Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, a Swamp Thing film, and multiple TV shows.
