With the expansion of The Walking Dead franchise, it has become easy to forget that other Robert Kirkman assets are in the process of adaptation. A new animated television show, based on Invincible, has been in development on Amazon for almost two years. It is based on Kirkman, an unusual superhero comic created in 2002 with artist Cory Walker.
Kirkman provided an update on Invincible while interacting with cartoonist Kayfab (via Veer Hollywood). Fans of his original comic will be happy to know that Amazon will reveal a broadcast date and premiere the first round of images for the show in the near future. And given his comments, the series would retain the graphic image of the comic.
Amazon announced a voice cast for Invincible last summer. as Steven Yuen in the Simmons lineup as his father, Omni-Man. However, not much new information has been received about the project since then. According to Kirkman, this is due to the delay between the recording phase and the animation phase.
So we had to announce the cast, otherwise, it would have leaked. And who knows how they would report that kind of thing?” So we had to announce when we started doing the voice recording, but before we started doing the animation, we started doing the voice recording. So there is a big difference between: ‘We are doing an unbeatable show, and here is this amazing artist, and don’t worry, it will happen sometime in the future.’
