The Netflix Marvel Universe may be dead, but it looks like a whole new small screen universe is starting up for the comic’s publisher. Surprisingly, you won’t find Marvel’s new slate on Disney+. Instead, you’ll find it over on Hulu (which they now own 60% post-FOX deal). The good news is that, unlike the current offerings on Disney XD, these new shows will be geared towards an adult audience.
Hulu is announcing that, in addition to their popular live-action adaption of Marvel’s The Runaways, four new animated series are set to hit their network. The shows will be based around M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and Howard The Duck. Much like their Netflix cousins, the new shows will eventually come together in a special titled: Marvel’s The Offenders.
Here are the summaries for the five new series:
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.
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 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 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.
