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".

Things between Marvel TV and Netflix may be winding down, but Hulu and its Disney-owned corporate cousin are just getting started it seems.

The four series are Marvel's M.O.D.O.K. Like every one of the new series, Loeb will also serve as an EP on the show of the politically progressive Tigra and Dazzler as they try to get their superpowered heads, hands and hearts around life in the City of Angels. In the case of Howard the Duck, perhaps that distinguishes Marvel's Howard the Duck from George Lucas' infamous live-action Howard the Duck. Virtually simultaneously, the House of Mouse is gearing up to take on Netflix and other with its near fully loaded Disney+ streaming service, of which Marvel movies and programming are a major component. Comedian-turned-talk show host Chelsea Handler is part of the team for that series, working with Erica Rivinoja, who crafted the story for Girls Trip and has worked on shows including South Park and The Last Man On Earth.

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. His goal is to return home with the help of his "unstoppable gal pal" Beverly, but they will have to take on the likes of the evil Dr. Bong, who wants to turn Howard into a meal. Comedian/actor/writer Patton Oswalt will work on that show along with Community's Jordan Blum. The character of Hit-Monkey first appeared in a 2010 issue of Deadpool, and is a "wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin". Writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck will executive produce along with Jeph Loeb. Here's the official description: "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".

The pack of weirdos, including MODOK, Dazzler, Tigra, Hit Monkey and Howard the Duck, will then "team up in order to save the world and certain parts of the Universe" Marvel's The Offenders. As for Howard the Duck, this show sees director, writer, and comic book icon Kevin Smith attempt to what the 1986 movie could not-namely, produce a decent screen version Howard the Duck. Jeph Loeb will executive produce. Jeph Loeb will executive produce.
