Tara Strong, who played Justine in Shadows of the Damned, Mary Jane in Ultimate Spider-Man and Harley Quinn in Arkham City (and has, in addition, a list of credits as long as your arm, assumign you are quite lanky), privdes Julet’s voice.
Filmmaker James Gunn is among a number of Hollywood talents on board the project, having provided some details of characterisation and story, and Mindless Self Indulgence’s Jimmy Urine fprovided music for the boss sequences.
