Catwoman: Hunted, Wonder Woman in Fortnite, & Star Wars: Visions – 2021-08-18

WB announces Catwoman: Hunted animated movie and voice cast

Catwoman is going from hunter to hunted as Warner Bros. Animation and DC have announced their next animated movie, Catwoman: Hunted, which will star Elizabeth Gillies as the voice of Selina Kyle.

The movie, which is produced in an anime style, picks up with Catwoman as she attempts to steal a priceless jewel. The heist puts her squarely in the crosshairs of both a powerful consortium of villains and the ever-resourceful Interpol as well as Batwoman, voiced by Stephanie Beatriz.

Other stars include Jonathan Banks as Black Mask, Steve Blum as Solomon Grundy, Lauren Cohan as Julia Pennyworth, Keith David as Tobias Whale, Zehra Fazal as Talia al Ghul & Nosferata, Jonathan Frakes as King Faraday & Boss Moxie, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Cheetah, Kelly Hu as Cheshire, Andrew Kishino as Mr. Yakuza & Domino 6, Eric Lopez as Domino 1, Jacqueline Obradors as La Dama, and Ron Yuan as Doctor Tzin.

Catwoman: Hunted is being written by Gargoyles creator and Young Justice co-creator Greg Weisman, with an expected release date of early 2022.

Wonder Woman arrives in Fortnite

Fortnite is getting even more heroic with the addition of a Wonder Woman skin when the Amazonian Warrior leaves Themyscira and lands in the game to fight alongside her fellow Justice League members.

Diana Prince’s outfit will come with a battle armor variant as well as her iconic regular costume. Of course, the outfit won’t be the only cosmetic for the Amazonian hero. She’ll also be released alongside Athena’s Battleaxe gathering tool, the Golden Eagle Wings glider, Diana’s Mantle back bling, and a DC Trinity loading screen where she poses with Batman and Superman.

Fortnite’s Wonder Woman skin will be released on August 19th. To celebrate the release of the new outfit, Epic will also host the Wonder Woman Cup tournament and give players a few challenges to complete. Any team that earns eight points or more in the tournament will receive the Honorary Amazons Loading Screen.

Star Wars: Visions sets Disney+ release date and voice cast

The anime anthology series Star Wars: Visions has been set for a premiere date of Wednesday, September 22nd on Disney+. A full trailer was also released to accompany the announcement.

Each of the nine episodes has a unique style and original story, and hails from seven visionary Japanese anime studios, with Trigger and Science Saru each behind two episodes apiece.

James Waugh, executive producer and Lucasfilm vice president of franchise content and strategy said of the series, “Their stories showcase the full spectrum of bold storytelling found across Japanese animation; each told with a freshness and voice that expands our understanding of what a Star Wars story can be, and celebrates a galaxy that has been such an inspiration to so many visionary storytellers.”

Disney also announced the main Japanese and English voice casts for the series. Along with returning actors such as Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett, there are a host of well-known performers involved in the English dubs including Lucy Liu, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Neil Patrick Harris, Alison Brie, Simu Liu, David Harbour, Henry Golding, and George Takei.
