We know we’re a day late on this one, but if Marvel is going to be willing to put out more mature content on Hulu, we’re going to have to get better stuff than Modok… Hopefully,
that will start with Hitmonkey starring Jason Sudekis, Olivia Munn, and George Takei.
The Character of Hit Monkey has been seen all over the Marvel Comics universe, but he’s probably best known for a string of appearances in Deadpool. If you aren’t familiar with him, here’s his basic bio, care of Wikipedia:
An unnamed assassin was marked for death after his part in a failed political coup. After blowing up a squad of enemy soldiers, he decides to run for his life. Passed out in the snow after four days of fleeing, he was rescued by a troop of Japanese macaques. The monkeys allowed the assassin into their clan, with the exception of a lone monkey. The man knew that he would be hunted so he trained daily using snowmen as training dummies. Quietly, the monkey that distrusted him watched, and eventually picked up on the fighter’s skills. The assassin’s health began to fail, and as the tribe of monkeys tried to save him, the lone monkey objected, eventually fighting the rest of the group with his newfound skills. Because of the violence he displayed, the monkey was banished from his clan. However, on his own, he saw a group of men on their way to kill the assassin. He tried to run back and warn his tribe, but it was too late – the assassin had been killed as well as the rest of the monkeys. Furious at his clan’s slaughter, the monkey picked up extra guns from a bag and proceeded to kill the entire group of men. Determined to avenge his fallen tribe, the monkey now dedicated his life to killing assassins – under the alias of Hit-Monkey.
Hit-Monkey shoots his way onto Hulu, November 17th.
