Circe was first introduced back in 1949 in the pages of Wonder Woman #37 and was created by writer Robert Kanigher and artist Harry G. Peter. Like her namesake in Greek mythology, Circe a penchant for turning human beings into animals alongside her immortality and powerful command over sorcery.
Gunn confirmed the casting whilst replying to fan on Threads over the weekend:
Gunn has previously stated that actors will portray their roles in both animated and live-action projects. So could we see Chalotra turn up as a live action Circe down the line?
In the 7 episodes series Sean Gunn will voice Weasel, Grillo is Rick Flag Sr., Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Varma is The Bride, Chao is Nina Mazursky, Tudyk is Dr. Phosphorus, Harbour is Eric Frankenstein and Agee is John Economos.
