Four Hulu Marvel Animated Shows on the Way

New Animated Marvel Shows Are Coming With Some Lesser-Known Characters Marvel & Hulu Ink Pact For ‘Howard The Duck’ Animated Series + More – TCA
Charles Bowen | 12 February, 2019, 17:30

Handing the streamer their own exclusives that are part of Disney's ownership of the Marvel Entertainment library is an early reveal of programming choices already in the works for the soon completed deal.

According to Variety, Marvel and Hulu will partner for series based on the following characters: the aforementioned Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, and Tigra and Dazzler.

And some surprising characters are going to be filling that void with The Offenders, a new adult animation initiative from Jeph Loeb and Marvel Television coming soon to Hulu. The chatty fowl be brought back to screens by avowed comicbook nut (and occasional writer) Kevin Smith alongside Aqua Teen Hunger Force veteran Dave Willis. "Marvel's M.O.D.O.K." comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, with Blum, Oswalt and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers. The series will all lead into a special animated event for Hulu, "Marvel's The Offenders".

Finally, Marvel's Howard The Duck focuses on the travails of the talking duck character first created by Steve Gerber as a play on a classic "funny animal" character trapped in a world he never made. Launching adult animated series on the platform is a bold move; it will be interesting to see how things shake out.

The second series is Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show, to be co-written and executive produced by former Netflix talk show personality Chelsea Handler.

Hit-Monkey: "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 amusing revenge saga". 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.

The four series are Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.

Here's the official description: "In Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show, two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles". 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.

No launch dates were announced but the shows will all be under the purview of executive vice president of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. "We're so excited for what's to come!" exclaimed executive producer Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television.
