Rooster Teeth has unveiled a new poster for their upcoming mecha series gen:LOCK ahead of their panel at New York Comic Con this weekend. The animated web series will feature the voices of David Tennant and Michael B Jordan and is set to launch early next year.

Michael B. Jordan voices main character Julian Chase, Dakota Fanning plays mech pilot Miranda Worth and Kōichi Yamadera voices new recruit Kazu Iida. gen:LOCK is co-produced by Jordan through his own company Outlier Society Productions.

The creators of the show have also announced new cast members to join the already starry cast. Award-winning Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) will voice field agent Yasamin "Yaz" Madrani.
Also signing up is Asia Kate Dillon (Orange Is The New Black) as fellow field agent Valentina “Val” Romanyszyn.

The NYCC Rooster Teeth Mega Panel takes place at 4pm on Sunday 7th October at The Hulu Theater, Madison Square Garden and promises exclusive sneak peeks of gen:LOCK and Volume 6 of the long running Rooster Teeth series RWBY.
