New official details of Marvel Television and Hulu’s partnership to create five adult animated series have been confirmed, including the creators behind each show.
As previously reported, filmmaker and comic book writer Kevin Smith and Aqua Teen Hunger Force co-creator Dave Willis will take on Howard The Duck, whose official description reads “Trapped in a world he never made, America’s favorite fighting fowl Howard the Duck hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him into the crispiest dish on the menu.”
Meanwhile, writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck will tackle Hit Monkey which is described as follows: “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.”
Then, The Dazzler & Tigra Show will be written by Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler. Here’s the official description: In Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show, two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles.”
Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt will develop M.O.D.O.K., which carries the description “In Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., M.O.D.O.K, an egomaniacal Super Villain with a really big head and a really little body, struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family.”
Finally, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb will executive produce The Offenders, which brings characters from all four shows together.
“A giant head. A monkey. A tiger lady and a disco queen. And the duck. Brought together because no one else could but Marvel Television on Hulu,” said Loeb in a statement. “M.O.D.O.K., Hit Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler and Howard the Duck will form a team no one asked for – The Offenders (and wait until you see who the Team Leader is!)! We have such tremendous talent bringing amazing adult animation that’s fun, fresh and fantastic. We’re so excited for what’s to come!”
No projected release dates for any of the series were announced.
