Four Hulu Marvel Animated Shows on the Way

Howard The Duck

New Animated Marvel Shows Are Coming With Some Lesser-Known Characters

Given that the shows will be on Hulu in the United States, it's anybody's guess as to where they'll end up in the UK.

These four sets of heroes will also come together for a Hulu special titled The Offenders, in which these unlikely heroes are "forced to team up in order to save the world and certain parts of the Universe".

Notably missing from that list of writers is George Lucas, who infamously botched Howard The Duck's biggest mainstream moment in a 1986 feature film.

Ex-Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler shifts over to Hulu for Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show, which she will EP and write with Erica Rivinoja.

China claims almost all of the South China Sea, though Taiwan, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam all claim parts of it.

News of these new animated series comes as three of the four original live-action Marvel Netflix Defenders shows-Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist-have all been cancelled within the past few months.

Animation is a realm where Hulu can make its mark. Launching adult animated series on the platform is a bold move; it will be interesting to see how things shake out. A M.O.D.O.K. series is being created by Patton Oswald and Jordan Blum, centered around the egomaniacal villain as he struggles to keep control of his evil organization and demanding family.

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.

In the series, Howard the Duck is trapped in a world he never made, but America's favorite fighting fowl 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... The show's being shepherded to the screen by Kevin Smith and Dave Willis, who'll executive produce alongside Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb. Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show focuses on the two title characters, who are "woke superheroes" (one of whom is a cat person, while the other is a light-powered pop singer) as they try to break big in Los Angeles.

Apple sticking with Lightning over USB-C on next iPhone
It's possible Apple could have plans to finally make the jump to the increasingly universal USB-C port for its 2020 iPhones. But rumor has it that this year's iPhone will ship with the standard Lightning port and 5W USB-A charger , as usual.

Howard The Duck hopefully brings us more of the amusing animal's comic book absurdity, instead of the live-action nightmare, and features creators Kevin Smith and Dave Wills.

According to Variety, Marvel and Hulu will partner for series based on the following characters: the aforementioned Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, and Tigra and Dazzler. Jeph Loeb serves as Executive Producer, while writers and additional Executive Producers for the project will be announced at a later point.

Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb will executive produce all of the shows, just as he did for the various Netflix series.
