Marvel has decided not to move forward with two of the four previously announced animated comedies that were slated to air on Hulu. Howard The Duck and the Tigra And Dazzler shows are no more. The other two, MODOK and Hit Monkey are still moving forward. The Tigra And Dazzler series had reportedly been dealing with writing staff issues and production was halted back in December. The decision by Marvel to scrap these two shows is likely part of a house-cleaning measure being taken due to the transition from the Jeph Loeb era of TV programing to the Kevin Feige one. Feige was named Marvel's chief creative officer of film, TV and animation back in October.
Hulu today announced they will be launching a slew of new shows based on Marvel Comics characters. It will be a self-contained animated like universe which will include obscure characters such as MODOK, Hit Monkey, Howard The Duck, Tigra & Dazzler. They will also have a team based special called The Offenders. 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. “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.” comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, with Blum, Oswalt and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers. “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. “Marvel’s Hit Monkey” comes from writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck, with Gordon, Speck and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers. 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. “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show” comes from writers Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler, with Rivinoja, Handler, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers. 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 the crispiest dish on the menu, in “Marvel’s Howard the Duck.” “Marvel’s Howard the Duck” comes from writersKevin Smith and Dave Willis, with Smith, Willis, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers. Finally, nobody asked them to, and we’d be better off if they didn’t, but M.O.D.O.K., 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 in “Marvel’s The Offenders.” Jeph Loeb serves as Executive Producer, while writers and additional Executive Producers for the project will be announced at a later point. Look for these to hit the streaming service starting later this year.
