Marvel might be saying bon voyage to Netflix but that doesn’t conclude them from going to going to rival streaming service, HULU. Marvel will be working with HULU to create 4 new animated series for the streaming service based on some of their most obscure heroes. This further strengthens Marvel’s and HULU’s relationship as they already have one popular series on the streaming service, Runaways, which is connected to the Marvel films. As for the animated shows…
The shows will be based on the following Marvel characters: Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, and Tigra and Dazzler. Like the Marvel-Netflix “Defenders” shows before them, the four characters will then team up in the animated special “The Offenders.” Marvel’s head of TV, Jeph Loeb, will executive produce each project.
“Howard the Duck” will be written and executive produced by Kevin Smith and Dave Willis. Smith is known for his Askewniverse films, including “Clerks,” “Mallrats,” and “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.” Smith has also written for Marvel Comics in the past, writing for popular characters like Daredevil and Spider-Man. Willis previously co-created popular animated shows like “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” and “Squidbillies” for Adult Swim in addition to his work as a voice actor.
