Marvel and Hulu bringing M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler Show and Howard The Duck adult animated series to your TV

February 12th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Looks like Marvel, despite fears over the cancelled Netflix shows, aren’t worried about bringing together all their TV shows under the banner of their new streaming service, Disney + as they have just given the go ahead for four big new animated shows to Hulu.

Hulu and Marvel Television announced the four new adult animated series last night and they will be made up of M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler Show and Howard The Duck.

Ala Avengers and The Defenders, the four series will culminate in a special titled Marvel’s The Offenders.
Here’ the details:

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.

Hulu currently is on the second season of Marvel’s Runaways.

No word if the Howard the Duck character will be the same Howard we met in Guardians of the Galaxy, but we DO know that Kevin Smith is very excited to be getting his hands on a Marvel property. Here’s what he tweeted after the announcement:

Are you excited for these new shows? It’s a bit annoying, given that Marcel last year pulled the plug on Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series, but we’re still excited to see how these go.

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….
