NYCC 2011 - Tony Todd is Dreadwing on Transformers Prime; Could Nathan Fillion Voice a Character Too?

By Peter Van on Sunday, October 16, 2011



We are live at the Transformers Prime panel at New York Comic Con 2011 where they revealed that Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle) could voice a Transformer in Season 2.

The creators teased that anything can happen. Mr. Fillion is just one of the celebrity voice actors that they wanted to work with and said to expect more guest stars just like this.

Also revealed at the panel is that Tony Todd will be voicing Dreadwing in Season 2 and he will have a compelling character arc.

For all the other details of the panel, check out our liveblog.

Correction: This article previously stated that Nathan Fillion was definitely joining the cast. However, they only said it was definitely a possibility. The correction is reflected above.

He's a good actor, might be good. Man, Firefly/Serenity sure is ironically keeping it's actors at work, while the series itself didn't work out.

I'd hoped to see Darkwing and Dreadwind to return in some form, but we may have to settle for Dreadwing (and maybe 'Darkwind', which was meant to be Darkwing's original name anyway). Being a fan of the UK TF comics, they were to me, a bit like the Scourge and Cyclonus partnership. ... read more

The Hub will not rest until the entire cast of Firefly are regular characters in TF:Prime.

Dreadwing? Not Darkwing or Dreadwind, but Dreadwing? Kinda disappointing. Granted, they probably can't get the name Darkwing from Disney, but still, they could rename him "something-wing" and still have the combined form be Dreadwing. Emerje

Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Diecast for the heads-up! As befits the name, Amazon has a Transformers deal for their Prime Day promotion! Amazon Prime members can get the Covenant of Primus - the super-slick book that recounts the entire history of the Transformers Aligned Continuity - for only $30!

While the Autobots have vowed to protect Earth, Megatron and his treacherous Decepticons have vowed to strip it of its valuable Energon, no matter the cost.

With Ultimate Decepticons, you can now see five of the greatest Decepticon stories, featuring Starscream, Skyquake, Makeshift, Airachnid, Dreadwing, Predaking, Knock Out and more of your all-time favorite transforming villains!
In what appears to be last minute deal, Tranformers and other Hasbro shows will be staying on with Netfilx. As we reported previously, Hasbro and Netflix were to go their own way last month when a new deal fell through. However, without disclosing the terms of the detail. USA Today reports Netflix let be known that Hasbro Studios shows aren't going anywhere. Good news for Netflix customers who need their Transformers fix.
Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
