Robert Kirkman‘s Invincible is just another one of his comic book properties that are heading to TV. Although, this one will be just a little bit different as it is being designed as an animated series. Still, that doesn’t make it any less interesting, as noted by the stellar voice cast. New reports say that Steven Yeun, who had a starring role in The Walking Dead, the the AMC television show adapted from Kirkman’s comic book series, has landed the lead voice role. And he’s not alone. The actor will be joined by J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Mark Hamill, and so many more. More on the report below.

If you’re excited to explore the ultimate Elder Scrolls open world map in The Elder Scrolls Online, that excitement is about to be elevated. Because the game isn’t just about exploring a massive map that includes previous game locations visited in Morrowind, Oblivion, and most recently, Skyrim. It also includes a story and plenty of quests, which of course means voice actors are necessary.
Bethesda Softworks has announced the official voice cast for The Elder Scrolls Online, which is being developed by ZeniMax Online Studios, and it is an impressive line up. You can see who’s on board, who they’re voicing, and watch a cool video of some of the actors talking about and recording lines for the game below.
An animated series that some of you may be familiar with and others not at all familiar with, Dan Vs. is finally making its way to home video.
The show, which comes from the same animation studio behind episodes of Family Guy, The Simpsons, Beavis and Butt-Head, and King of the Hill, airs on Discovery and Hasbro’s The Hub network, but, if you’re like myself, is also a show you’ve never heard of—to the point of it already getting through a significant chunk of its second season unnoticed—on a channel you’ve never heard of. One of the primary reasons for this is because it used to be the Discovery Kids channel, and most of its content is aimed at a much younger audience. Upon further inspection, however, the channel does air re-runs of ALF, so we should all give it a peek on that basis alone.
For those of you who are aware of and watch Dan Vs., you’ve likely been wondering just when the first season of the show would be released on DVD. The answer is later this summer, on July 17th, and you can pre-order it right now.

Planet Hulk is the latest direct-to-DVD film from Marvel’s Animation Studio and it’s got a lot going for it. Director Sam Liu has previously worked on Superman/Batman: Public Enemies and screenwriter Greg Johnson worked on one of my personal favorites, Doctor Strange. The film is also based on one of the best Hulk stories of all time (written by the awesome Greg Pak) in which the Green Goliath is deemed too dangerous for Earth and exiled to another planet free of any intelligent life. Unfortunately something goes wrong and the Hulk’s ship crash lands on a war world where he’s immediately forced into slavery and forced to fight Gladiator-style for his freedom. All of these factors contributed to my Hulk-size anticipation of the film and I can thankfully say I was not disappointed.
