Amazon Studios have released the official trailer for Invincible, the new, animated series based on the comic written by The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman. The series, which centers on the second generation of a superhero family, is set to debut next month on the streaming service. The cast includes The Walking Dead veterans Steven Yeun and Khary Payton as well as genre staples like J.K. Simmons, Zachary Quinto, and Mark Hamill. At the same time, Kirkman's Skybound Productions is reportedly working to develop a live-action movie adaptation independent of the animated series -- but which a success here would likely make easier to sell.
From The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and based on the Skybound/Image comic of the same name by Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an adult animated superhero show that revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems.
You can see the trailer above.
Fans of The Walking Dead will likely not be too disappointed by a cast that brings back a number of Skybound favorites, including series lead Steven Yeun, who played Glenn on the AMC horror series.
