2019 is bringing in a lot of changes to many different industries. Hulu and Marvel Recently struct a new partnership. Four new adult animations are in the works for the upcoming years.
The shows are supposed to be tied into another in a special event called, The Offenders. Focused on Howard the Duck. M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & The Dazzler
Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) is centered around “an egomaniacal super-villain with a really big head and a really little body” who attempts to maintain control of his evil organization and family. The notorious villain for Captian America Iron Man and The Fantastic Four, M.O.D.O.K. is being written by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt and produced by Jeph Loe.
Hit-Monkey, often seen with Deadpool, follows a wronged Japanese snow monkey who is mentored by the ghost of an American assassin. He fights his way through the Tokyo underworld in what’s described as a dark, cinematic and brutally funny revenge saga. Hit-Monkey is being written by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who will executive produce with Loeb.
Tigra & Dazzler
Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show is about two “woke” superheroes and best friends who fight to be recognized among other powered people in Los Angeles. Tigra & Dazzler is being written by Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler, who is executive producing alongside Loeb. Chelsea Handler has some serious comedy chops so hopefully, these two have a crazy funny dynamic.
Howard The Duck
For those who dont remember Howard the duck had a pretty cool after credits scene in the first Guardians of The Galaxy movie. Truly heartbreaking that didn’t amount to anything. The Puppet era of film also ushered in a Howard the Duck Movie that was aimed for adults, not doing so well in the box office it slowly grew into being a cult classic.
Marvel’s Howard The Duck follows the titular anthropomorphic ill-tempered fowl, who is trapped in a world he never made and hopes to return home with the help of his “unstoppable gal pal” Beverly before Dr. Bong can “turn him the crispiest dish on the menu.” Howard The Duck is being written by Kevin Smith and Dave Willis, who are executive producing with Loeb.
With Kevin Smith Patton Oswalt and Chelsea handler writing and producing these shows have a lot of promise. The adult animation world has been dominated by Rick and Morty for far too long . No Offical air date has been attached to these projects yet, but check back in with us to be updated.
