The DC Universe has recently made a significant move by adding three actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the voice cast of the upcoming Creature Commandos animated series. Here are the three actors who have joined the DC Universe:
1. David Harbour – David Harbour Known for his role as Jim Hopper in the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, Harbour has also made a name for himself in the MCU as the Red Guardian in Black Widow. In Creature Commandos, he will lend his voice to Eric Frankenstein, a former Nazi scientist who is transformed into a monster and becomes a member of the Creature Commandos team.
2. Frank Grillo – Grillo played the villainous Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War. He will now take on the role of Rick Flag Sr. in the DC Universe’s Creature Commandos. Grillo was already confirmed to be part of the project after teasing his involvement on Instagram.
3. Maria Bakalova – The Bulgarian actress recently made headlines for her breakout performance in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which earned her an Academy Award nomination. Bakalova will make her Marvel debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as the voice of Cosmo the Space Dog. In Creature Commandos, she will voice Princess Ilana Rostovic, a mysterious and powerful character who is a member of the Creature Commandos team.
The decision to cast actors known for their work in the MCU in a DC project is a bold move, but not entirely unexpected. Director James Gunn, who is overseeing both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Creature Commandos, has a history of working with actors he enjoys collaborating with. He has even cast his own brother, Sean Gunn, in multiple projects.
This move may start a trend of actors moving between the MCU and DCU, as the two franchises have always been in competition.
Fans of both Marvel and DC will be eagerly awaiting the release of Creature Commandos to hear the performances of these talented actors. The animated series is based on a DC Comics team of the same name, consisting of monsters and other supernatural creatures brought together to fight evil.
Overall, the casting of these three actors in the DC Universe marks a significant moment in the superhero movie industry, and it will be fascinating to see how it plays out in the future.
