Marvel and Hulu Announce Series for HOWARD THE DUCK, M.O.D.O.K., HIT MONKEY, TIGRA & DAZZLER and THE OFFENDERS
We’ve got some big Marvel news today! While Marvel and Netflix are winding down their relationship, Marvel and Hulu are ramping up things! They’ve announced four new Marvel animated shows and a standalone special that are in development!
The four animated series include Marvel’s Howard the Duck, Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, and Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show. The standalone team-up special is Marvel’s The Offenders.
There’s also some great talent working on the shows. That talent includes Kevin Smith, Patton Oswalt, Chelsea Handler, Erica Rivinoja, Dave Willis, and more. Here are the details that have been revealed for each of the shows:
Howard the Duck:
Marvel’s Howard The Duck is trapped in a world he never made, but America’s favorite fighting fowl hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him the crispiest dish on the menu. Writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis will also executive produce along with Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. centers around an egomaniacal supervillain with a really big head and a really little body, who struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family. Writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt will also executive produce along with Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s Hit-Monkey tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally funny revenge saga. Writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck will executive produce along with Jeph Loeb.
Tigra & Dazzler:
Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show is a story about two woke superheroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, as they fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles. Writers Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler serve as executive producers along with Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s The Offenders, is a story in which nobody asked them to – and we’d be better off if they didn’t – but MODOK, Dazzler, Tigra, Hit Monkey and Howard the Duck are all forced to team up in order to save the world and certain parts of the Universe. Jeph Loeb will executive produce.
This is pretty exciting and completely unexpected! I can’t wait to see what comes of this, but I hope that they end up being better than the animated shows that Marvel has been producing recently. Marvel has been slacking in the animation medium. This is an great opportunity for them to do some great things, hopefully they bring on some talented artists to bring these shows to life!
What do you think about these new animated shows that Marvel will be producing for Hulu?
