On Friday, IGN featured a great segment on the upcoming Invincible animated series during their IGN 2021 Fan Fest.
In addition to an extended clip, they also interviewed series writer/creator Robert Kirkman along with the voice cast members Steven Yeun (Mark Grayson), J.K. Simmons (Omni-Man), Gillian Jacobs (Atom Eve), Zazie Beets (Amber Bennett), and Jason Mantzoukas (Rex Splode).
The entire thing is definitely worth watching, but here are the main “newsy” highlights:
- The series is an hour long drama that just happens to be animated…and extremely mature/violent.
- Unlike most superhero stories, the good guys don’t always win. Also, when something bad/major happens, it remains a part of the story instead of being retconned back to the status quo.
- A live action Invincible movie is still in the works.
Here is the extended clip, which features Mark Grayson’s bizarre life as a teenager with a superhero father and the first time his powers show up.
The first three episodes of Invincible will premiere March 26 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
