COMIC-CON@HOME: Marvel does horror in Hulu’s Helstrom trailer and panel

July 26th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Marvel does horror!

Yes, all the way from YouTube, or rather Comic-Con@Home, we have the first trailer for Hulu’s Marvel/MCU series Helstrom.

Originally set to be the beginning of the horror corner of the MCU, Helstrom and Ghost Rider were set to be two series thatwould put the supernatural in, em, superheroes.

Sadly, with Kevin Feige now overseeing all of the MCU content, including the shows on Disney+, this is likely the last non-Disney+ MArvel show and it’s also likely that a second series isn’t likely.

Anyway, check out the trailer below and keep scrolling for the full panel from Comic-Con too.

The world isn’t ready for a Helstrom family reunion.

All episodes premiere October 16th, 2020, only on Hulu. A

As the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer, Helstrom follows Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon), and their complicated dynamic, as they track down the worst of humanity — each with their own attitude and skills.


Here’s the full panel from Comic-Con@Home:

Talk about some family drama! Join Helstrom showrunner Paul Zbyszewski and cast—Tom Austen, Sydney Lemmon, Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, Ariana Guerra, June Carryl, and Alain Uy—for one hell of a sneak-peek look and conversation around bringing this terror-filled comic to life as Hulu’s next horror series. Moderated by IGN’s Laura Prudom.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
