The Walking Dead Stars Reuniting for Robert Kirkman’s Animated Superhero Series Invincible

Past and present stars of The Walking Dead will reunite and lend their voices to adult animated superhero show Invincible, inspired by the Image Comics series of the same name co-created by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. The Amazon Studios series is led by former Walking Dead star Steven Yeun as super-powered teen Mark Grayson — who suits up as costumed crime-fighter Invincible after inheriting powers from his alien father, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), the world's most powerful superhero — and features a previously announced cast that includes Sandra Oh, Mark Hamill, Seth Rogen, Zazie Beetz, Gillian Jacobs, Walton Goggins, Zachary Quinto, and The Walking Dead's Khary Payton.

Joining Yeun and Payton are current Walking Dead cast members Lauren Cohan and Ross Marquand as well as Fear the Walking Dead leading man Lennie James. Former Walking Dead stars joining Invincible include Sonequa Martin-Green, Chad Coleman, and Michael Cudlitz.

The newly-added cast members will voice the Guardians of the Globe, a Justice League-inspired superhero team. An announcement during this year's online-only Comic-Con@Home revealed the new cast members and their respective characters:

Lauren Cohan as War Woman
Chad Coleman as Martian Man
Michael Cudlitz as Red Rush
Lennie James as Darkwing
Ross Marquand as The Immortal & Aquarius
Sonequa Martin-Green as Green Ghost
