Academy Award-nominee Edward James Olmos will voice a main villain, Molecule Man, in season two of Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
A new foe enters the fray in season 2! Starting with the premiere episode, Edward James Olmos will guest star as Molecule Man — a powerful being with the ability to manipulate nonliving organic matter. Often feeling like there was no place for him, he escaped to a whole new planet and used his powers to create an incredible world of natural wonder, soon making it a popular destination for aliens and beings across the multiverse!
When creating the character, the creative team behind the show searched for an actor whose voice was powerful enough to face off with Lawrence Fishburne, who voices The Beyonder. Olmos, who the team thought was a perfect fit to be one of The Beyonder’s main antagonists.
Molecule Man first made his Marvel Comics debut in FANTASTIC FOUR #20 in November of 1963, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
