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?

Oh man, oh man. Marvel's Runaways first season was by far the best Marvel show that I wanted to see more of. Every other thing Marvel has on TV seems to end on a contained note where the story really doesn't have to go anywhere else. Or a note where I don't care what happens next. Not this one, I couldn't get enough of this show, & when it ended? I found myself left begging for more. My wants have been answered in the form of this awesome teaser for Runaways: Season 2 . This looks like it's going to blow away what was set up in the first season. December 21 is officially on my calendar now. I definitely won't be missing this. Check it out, & tell me what you think?

I'm didn't know how much I was anticipating November 16th until I saw this teaser trailer. Hulu looks like it's prepared to give Netflix a run for it's money with this spot for their upcoming Runaways. This will be based on Marvel's story about a group of kids who find out their parents are in a supervillain cult. Awesome premise. I've read some of it myself, & went on to follow some of the characters further on in their lives. A part of me is wondering if I'm only this excited from this trailer for the few things I do know about some of the characters, because it's definitely a teaser. I can't wait to see this though. I really am intrigued as to what y'all think? Especially those who know nothing of the source material. Does this look intriguing to you? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
I'm really excited for this one. I read some of the first couple issues of Runaways, but I actually cared more about these characters following some of them in a series called Murderworld. It was a kind of Battle Royale, Hunger Games thing where the contestants of the game had to kill each other off to be the last. After getting closer with some of the Runaways kids, I've wanted to dive back into the Runaways comics. Once this was announced I put those plans on further hiatus. Glad too, Entertainment Weekly put up these awesome exclusive first look pics, & I can't wait to see this series. The premise is amazing, some kids find out their parents are actually supervillains in some "League of Supervillains" known as the Pride. I've got the pic of the kids with the parents underneath down there, & under that is the kids one by one. First there's the parents played by Brigid Branagh (Stacey Yorkes), Kevin Weisman (Dale Yorkes), James Marsters (Victor Stein), Ryan Sands (Geoffery Wilder), Ever Carradine (Janet Stein), Angel Parker (Catherine Wilder), Annie Wersching (Leslie Dean), James Yaegashi (Robert Minoru) & Brittany Ishibashi ( Tina Minoru). Then you've got the kids which I'll list in the order they're pictured from left to right. The pictures really sum up the attitudes of them. The kids are played by Gregg Sulkin (Chase Stein), Lyrica Okano (Nico Minoru), Virginia Gardner (Karolina Dean), Rhenzy Feliz (Alex Wilder), Ariela Barer (Gert Yorkes), & Allegra Acosta (Molly Hernandez). My main question after seeing these pics is how the hell did Inhumans miss the mark so badly? These come off looking like movie quality & Inhumans played in a friggin' IMAX. Anyway, Nov. 21, count me in. If you don't have Hulu now might be the time. What do y'all think though? Do these pictures interest you at all? Does this storyline of kids vs. supervillain parents do it for you? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Earlier this week two cast pictures were released. One of which via Twitter, the cast of Marvel's Runaways, coming soon to Hulu, about a group of teens who find out their parents belong to a secret evil organization. While the second came from Entertainment Weekly in the form of the fully costumed cast pic of Marvel's Inhumans debuting on Imax Sept 1, & later following up on ABC. You'll see below I've labeled those pictures Exhibit A & Exhibit B. We'll start much like our alphabet with A. All Exhibit A needed was a diverse cast of teens from all different backgrounds. Mission accomplished. That success keeps me fully interested. Then there's Exhibit B. The internet has not been kind. The words cosplay & Walmart Halloween costumes have been thrown around, & I've got to say, not without merit. This is very 1994 Fantastic Four-ish. And maybe it's only because I've seen these done sooo much better by cosplayers. I'm hoping they come off more believable in action, but this picture is not encouraging. It is just a picture, but man. What so y'all think? Leave it in the comments, like, & share...
