Hulu greenlights four animated series based on obscure Marvel characters
Hulu has greenlighted four adult-oriented animated shows based on niche Marvel characters, the AV Club reports. The streaming platform announced Monday that M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and Howard the Duck are all in the works.
With Netflix canceling the majority of its Marvel shows—including Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage—it seems that Hulu is the next streaming service finding partnership with the comics juggernaut (Hulu’s Marvel lineup already includes The Runaways). Eventually, its four new series will culminate in a crossover special titled The Offenders, in case the dig at Netflix wasn’t obvious enough.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, M.O.D.O.K. will feature the writing team of Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum and will center on the Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing as he “struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family.” In Hit-Monkey, writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck will tell the revenge story of a “wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin.”
Tigra & Dazzler centers on a woman with jungle-cat like abilities and a sometimes-member of the X-Men with the power to convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams respectively. The story of these “two woke superheroes” will be penned by Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler.
Finally, the Howard The Duck series will seek to redeem the character from the universally panned film of the same name produced by George Lucas in 1986. The new series will be written by Kevin Smith and Dave Willis.
