Variety reported four new animated Marvel shows coming to Hulu produced by Marvel TV head, Jeph Loeb. Obviously by the title you can tell which one has me the most excited. Mainly because it's being written & executive produced by the amazing Kevin Smith & Dave Willis, but Howard the Duck by far tops this list for me. In the synopsis given, Howard will be "trapped in a world he never made." He's hoping to return home with the help of gal pal Beverly before the "evil Dr. Bong can turn him the crispiest dish on the menu." Next up is M.O.D.O.K. or Mental Organism Designed Only For Killing. He's a really big, floating head with a really little body. He'll be executive produced & written by Jordan Blum & Patton Oswalt, as he trys to maintain control of his evil organization & family. Second on my list to look forward to, even if M.O.D.O.K. has never really been one of my favorite villains. Third up we start to get off my radar with Hit-Monkey . Where we'll get a Japanese snow monkey, trained by the ghost of an American assassin, as he takes on the Tokyo underworld. This one will be executive produced by Josh Gordon & Will Speck. I don't even know what to think much less expect with that one. Finally we've got Tigra & Dazzler . This didn't come with a synopsis, but it's executive produced & written by Erica Rivinoja & Chelsea Handler. This grabs my attention as I used to be a really big Chelsea Lately fan. On top of all this, they will eventually combine to form The Offenders in yet another, team up series. With this already being labeled as for adults, & popping up on Hulu instead of Disney+, I have a feeling these are going to be pull no punches hilarious. With Disney now having controlling interest in Hulu we could see these for awhile, spawning even more titles if they're good. I'm pretty intrigued to see how this pans out. What about y'all?

1986's Howard the Duck has gone down in history as one of the worst movies of all times. However, I was 6 at the time so I loved this movie. It still has a place in my heart even though it has been universally panned. Making it an even bigger surprise when Howard the Duck made an appearance in the post-credits of the first Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm not the only fan of Quack-fu apparently as according to Movie Pilot at a press conference for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Kevin Feige was asked about what's in the cards for Mr. the Duck. Offering no concrete response he gives a vague, "You know, the fun thing about Howard is he shows up where you least expect him, so like who knows where he's going to appear next?" So nothing major, but he definitely left the door open for the possibility. I'm down, as long as we keep it more in touch with the source material this time around. Do you want to see more Howard the Duck in the MCU? Let us know in the comments, like, & share.
