The season finale of Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur animated series ended on an explosive cliffhanger with fans chomping at the bit for the second season. While there’s been no official word when the second season will premiere, Disney has announced Edward James Olmos will voice a main villain, Molecule Man, in season two of Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.


According to the official press release, Molecule Man is one of the main villains in season two, making his debut in the premiere episode. He is 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! 

Much like the Beyonder, the series is clearly taking a departure from the comic book depiction of Molecule Man is an existing Marvel character who first appeared in Fantastic Four #20 (November 1963) and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. When creating the Molecule Man character for the series, the creative team wanted to cast an actor whose voice was powerful enough to face off with The Beyonder (voiced by Laurence Fishburne) and felt that Edward James Olmos was a perfect fit.

This isn’t the first time Olmos has played in the Marvel sandbox. He portrayed the character Robert Gonazles in the live-action Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series.

Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, based on Marvel’s hit comic books of the same name, follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette (Diamond White) and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur (Fred Tatasciore ). After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City, the duo works together to protect the city’s Lower East Side from danger. The Disney animated series stars Diamond White as Lunella Lafayette, who is Marvel’s first Black teenage girl superhero, and Fred Tatasciore as Devil Dinosaur.

The series is executive produced by Laurence Fishburne. Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC’s black-ish and mixed-ish, Freeform’s grown-ish) and Steve Loter (Disney’s Kim Possible).
