As Marvel’s Netflix relationship sours, the comic book powerhouse is entering a new pact for a slate of four animated series with Hulu.
The streamer — soon to be majority controlled by Marvel parent Disney as part of the Fox asset sale — has greenlit four animated series (and a special) as part of a new partnership with the comic giant.
Adult animated series based on popular Marvel Television characters MODOK, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler and Howard the Duck have been ordered to series. Similar to Netflix’s original four-series deal, all of the Hulu animated shows will culminate in a special — called The Offenders.
I thought for sure that this was an April Fool’s gag, months early.
That said, A Patton Oswalt MODOK show? Hell yeah.
