Masters of the Universe: Revelation just took a ginormous step forward! Netflix has revealed the star-studded vocal cast for Kevin Smith’s upcoming animated series. In exciting fandom news, the cartoon will reunite Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy. Fans will recall that Hamill and Conroy both lent their voices to the beloved Batman show, Batman: The Animated Series.
Recent Arrow-verse guest star Kevin Conroy took on the role of Batman, while Mark Hamill played The Joker. This was a part that Hamill has expressed being “forever grateful” for, in light of it allowing him to frighten children. He kids! Let the good times continue as Conroy and Hamill reunite for Netflix’s ambitious Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Check out the full cast list below:
Still a little dazed by the blinding star-power of Masters of the Universe: Revelation? It is okay to feel overwhelmed and need a moment to sift through it. Twenty-one names were announced! As you can tell from scanning the list, Mark Hamill (Skeletor) and Kevin Conroy (Mer-Man) are not the cast’s sole connection to Batman. Diedrich Bader will also be part of the ensemble as King Randor/Trap Jaw.
Diedrich Bader voices Batman in DC Universe’s Kaley Cuoco-led Harley Quinn series, while Kevin Michael Richardson (Beast Man) voiced The Joker in The Batman. So, the cast for Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a revelatory list of pop culture mainstays. Also co-starring with Mark Hamill will be Game of Thrones stars Lena Headey and Liam Cunningham. Headey is playing Evil-Lyn, while Cunningham will voice Man-At-Arms.
Check out Kevin Smith’s Instagram post celebrating the casting announcement:
Yes, that is Mark Hamill and Kevin Smith striking a pose! Lena Headey can also be seen with Smith, three pictures to the right. Smith looks super excited, which makes sense, because he has the plum job of showrunner for Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which will be a continuation of the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
Masters of the Universe: Revelation is jam-packed with stars! Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar will voice Teela, while Clueless’ Alicia Silverstone is also on-board as Queen Marlena. Other familiar names include Supergirl’s Chris Wood, who recently reprised his role as The Vampire Diaries’ Kai Parker for the series’ spinoff, Legacies. Wood will play our Prince Adam/He-Man in the Netflix series.
Aside from Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, there are some other well-known and long-standing members of the voice acting community helping to bring our favorite Masters of the Universe characters to life. These include Office Space’s Stephen Root (Cringer), DC Super Hero Girls’ Cree Summer (Priestess), BoJack Horseman’s Phil LaMarr (He-Ro), and vocal legend Tony Todd (Scare Glow) of Candyman fame. In a casting coup that fans will absolutely adore, Toy Story 4’s Alan Oppenheimer (Moss Man) is also stepping up to the mic, and he just so happens to have been the original voice behind Skeletor.
Masters of the Universe: Revelation will not only reunite Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy with respect to their days on Batman: The Animated Series. The two have also taken part in the Arrow-verse. Conroy played Batman in the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, while Hamill has portrayed The Trickster on The Flash. But, Hamill and Conroy’s reunion for the Netflix series is no trick and all treat.
