Marvel's The Offenders will be coming to Hulu and will feature M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra, Dazzler, and Howard the Duck in an animated series. Much like The Defenders, on Netflix, several of them will have their own series and then be tied to the team show, The Offenders. Marvel.com broke the news.
AFJ's Take: This sounds great. Marvel has proven that its offbeat characters, with the proper creative team behind them, can be a success. Those involved only inspire confidence in us. Will Seth Green return to play Howard the Duck, is our next question? #AFJ4LIFE
From Marvel: Marvel characters M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra, Dazzler, and Howard the Duck are all getting animated at Hulu – and hopefully you’re not (too) offended!
At the Television Critics Association press tour Monday morning, Hulu announced four new Marvel Television animated series are on the way, including “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.,” “Marvel’s Hit Monkey,” “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show,” and “Marvel’s Howard the Duck.” The series will all lead into a special animated event for Hulu, “Marvel’s 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 writers Kevin 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.
“A giant head. A monkey. A tiger lady and a disco queen. And the duck. Brought together because no one else could but Marvel Television on Hulu. M.O.D.O.K., Hit Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler and Howard the Duck will form a team no one asked for -- The Offenders (and wait until you see who the Team Leader is!)! We have such tremendous talent bringing amazing adult animation that's fun, fresh and fantastic. We're so excited for what's to come!" exclaimed executive producer Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television.
