Marvel Television may look a lot different now than it did just a year and a half ago, but that doesn’t mean Marvel TV shows are going anywhere any time soon. For example, of all the animated series that were previously announced for Hulu, the most anticipated is Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum’s M.O.D.O.K.
The MODOK series will be an adult animated comedy following the titular villain, who has an enormous head and incredibly small body. The comedic and satirical approach is perfect for Oswalt’s brand of comedy, and the actor will be voicing MODOK in addition to his duties writing and producing the series.
During Hulu’s presentation at TCA on Friday, SVP of original content Craig Erwich offered an update on MODOK‘s progress, praising the work done by Oswalt and Blum.
“I have seen quite a few episodes of MODOK, which I’m really excited about,” said Erwich. “Patton Oswalt is a lifelong Marvel fan and was obsessed with the character of MODOK. So, for him to finally get his hands on that character and for he and Jordan Blum to do what they always wanted to do with it, which is a whole new take and a very funny one, on what it means to be a comic book villain is really special. I’m excited to see that.”
There hasn’t yet been an official release date set for MODOK.
