The Witcher’s Anya Chalotra Joins ‘Creature Commandos’ As Wonder Woman Villain, Circe

Now that the DCEU (short for DC Extended Universe) timeline has come to an end, it’s time to gear up for the arrival of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe (DCU). Animated series Creature Commandos will join live-action feature Superman: Legacy in kicking off this first chapter, with The Witcher star Anya Chalotra tapped to voice Circe, best known as a foe to Wonder Woman in DC comic books.

The casting was confirmed on social media platform Threads, where Gunn responded to a fan asking if Chalotra would indeed by playing the character . “Yes. And there are other cool characters in the show played by other cool actors. But all of the series regulars were announced,” he teased.

The news comes nearly five months after Chalotra’s CV listed Creature Commandos, which also stars Frank Grillo as Rick Flag Sr., Maria Bakalova as Ilana Rostovic, Indira Varma as Bride of Frankenstein, Zoë Chao as amphibious scientist Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Doctor Phoshorus, David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein, Sean Gunn as G.I. Robot / Weasel, Steve Agee as John Economos, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller from prior DC media.

While the David Corenswet-led Superman: Legacy is scheduled to be the inaugural DCU film in 2025, the seven-episode series will be the first project from DC Studios to arrive in 2024. It’s slated to premiere in the later part of the year on Max, with no exact streaming date set just yet.

Based on the DC Comics team of the same name, Creature Commandos will feature several characters from the New 52 era that haven’t been seen or mentioned in previous live-action projects. Despite its animated nature, Gunn confirmed that the DCU would share continuity between feature films, TV shows, and animated works, so these characters are also expected to appear in live-action form. l

“I think it’s going to be really fun and really exciting, and it opens up a whole new door to the DC Universe of how these characters will occupy the world. I like the concept of a live action and cartoon back and forth,” Harbour said previously to io9, on the opportunity to play the same role in two different mediums.
