Even a pandemic cannot stop Marvel Comics’ famed Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing from making his eventual Hulu debut. While promoting the upcoming third season of the Peacock series A.P. Bio, Patton Oswalt confirmed that the animated take on M.O.D.O.K. he and showrunner Jordan Blum are working on is on track to debut early next year.
It’s a wait, but Oswalt makes it sound like it’ll be worth it.
“The episodes have been written” he said. “They’ve been recorded. Now they’re being animated. And because we committed very hard to the stop-motion aspect to it and we’re really packing every frame with crazy detail. It’s looking like it’ll be early next year, but I don’t know the exact date yet.”
The stop-motion animation for M.O.D.O.K. is being done by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (the same production company behind Robot Chicken), with the previously announced voice cast for M.O.D.O.K. including Oswalt, Aimee Garcia, Melissa Fumero, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ben Schwartz, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly, and Sam Richardson.
