Amazon has released the first clip from its upcoming Invincible animated series featuring the voice talents of Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man: Far From Home) as their respective characters play an innocent game of father-and-son catch- just with a small twist.
Ever since the project was announced, fans of the long-running Image comic have insisted that viewers are not ready for the shocking turns and bloody violence the series will depict (if it stays true to the source material). In addition to the first clip above, Amazon has also revealed that the first three episodes of the series will drop on March 26, before moving to a weekly-release format that will conclude with 8 episodes on April 30.

Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker created Invincible in 2002, releasing a 6-page preview in the debut of another Kirkman series, Tech Jacket. The debut issue of Invincible would be released in 2003, kickstarting a 15 year run that concluded in 2018 at #144 issues.
Back in 2017, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were originally set to make an Invincible feature film at Universal Pictures before the project eventually moved to Amazon in 2018.
INVINCIBLE is an Amazon Original series based on the groundbreaking comic book from Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead. The story revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). In this extended first clip, Mark chats with his father about his developing powers. Coming only to Prime Video on March 26.
