Marvel to make 4 animated superhero series for Hulu

LUCASFILM

Marvel did not say when we could expect to see any of these shows hit Hulu, but we can't imagine any will be ready for 2019.

Disney will own a majority stake in Hulu once it receives regulatory approval for its purchase of film and television businesses from Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox Inc, which is expected in the coming months. But the news also emerges days after Marvel's corporate parent Disney talked up sweeping content plans for its own upcoming video-streaming service, Disney Plus.

Hulu announced to the Television Critics Association a new partnership with Marvel for four animated series and a standalone special.

Sticking with the Marvel Netflix comparisons for a moment, these four series will ultimately culminate in a crossover show called The Offenders. Hit-Monkey isn't a name-brand character for Marvel, but neither was Howard the Duck (or the Guardians of the Galaxy, for that matter) at one point.

"M.O.D.O.K", or Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, 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. Comedian/actor/writer Patton Oswalt will work on that show along with Community's Jordan Blum. Smith has also written for Marvel Comics in the past, writing for popular characters like Daredevil and Spider-Man.

The character of Hit-Monkey first appeared in a 2010 issue of Deadpool, and is a "wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin". His goal is to return home with the help of his "unstoppable gal pal" Beverly, but they will have to take on the likes of the evil Dr. Bong, who wants to turn Howard into a meal. Kevin Smith and Dave Willis are writer and producers on Howard the Duck, with Loeb.

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. Jeph Loeb serves as Executive Producer, while writers and additional Executive Producers for the project will be announced at a later point. We're so excited for what's to come."Additionally, you can check out what each show has in store below". What do you think about seeing the likes of MODOK and Howard the Duck get the adult animated treatment?
