Marvel to make four animated superhero series for Hulu

Hulu and Marvel Television have partnered to produce four adult animated series, Variety has learned.

All of us have been looking so closely at Marvel and Netflix that we forgot that, with the acquisition of Fox, they will effectively own most of Hulu.

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.

Sticking with the Marvel Netflix comparisons for a moment, these four series will ultimately culminate in a crossover show called The Offenders. "And the duck. Brought together because no one else could but Marvel Television on Hulu", said Loeb in a statement. Previously adapted into an infamously foul 1986 live-action feature, Howard centers on an anthropomorphic duck from the planet Duckworld who must survive on Earth and escape the clutches of Dr. Bong (a dude with a bell for a head) with the help of his "unstoppable gal pal Beverly".

Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler are teaming up for Tigra & Dazzler which sees the two "woke super heroes" teaming up in L.A. for what may be the first time in any medium.

M.O.D.O.K, based on the character whose acronym expands to Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, focuses on 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.

M.O.D.O.K. will be written and executive produced by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt.

Hit-Monkey: "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 amusing revenge saga". "Marvel's Hit Monkey" comes from writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck, with Gordon, Speck and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers. Smith has also written for Marvel Comics in the past, writing for popular characters like Daredevil and Spider-Man. Writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis will also executive produce.

All four series will cross paths in the Marvel' The Offenders special, which Jeph Loeb is executive producing in what is a major expansion of Marvel TV. We're so excited for what's to come."Additionally, you can check out what each show has in store below". But if you haven't been keeping up with Smith's comics work, rest assured that Howard's animated turn won't revolve around ponderous dialogue at a New Jersey mall.
