the Hulu cartoons are giving me Hellstrom vibes to where they were in production too far enough before Feige got creative control to get immediately axed, which makes me wonder just how much Marvel is genuinely willing to support them.

An unfortunate reality of the corporate world - tech, animation, anything - is that people who inherit others' projects often scuttle them for budget/resource reasons, which then get assigned to their own projects. Those projects - hopefully successful - then become part of their resumes. This is (basically) what inspired the cancellation of AEMH in favor of Avengers Assemble.

Well, they're releasing a tie-in comic focused on MODOK...
A very minor update, but ABC News mentions that Hit-Monkey is still in the works.
Seems like we keep forgetting about that one because we've heard so little about it :sweat:.

Well, the most recent report prior to this (from December 2020) mentioned MODOK and Hit-Monkey are all that remains from Jeph Loeb's Marvel/Hulu projects. I thought that would be enough confirmation both shows will be produced and released.

03/11:
Looking through the WonderCon schedule, there's a Q&A session with the cast and crew of M.O.D.O.K. listed for March 27 at 12:00 pm PT.

03/27:
Here's the WonderCon panel for M.O.D.O.K..


Also an article on Marvel.com with some more character designs and additions to the cast.

So, just to recap, the new guest-stars announced are Nathan Fillion as Wonder Man, Whoopi Goldberg as Poundcakes, Bill Hader as both the Leader and Angar the Screamer, and Jon Hamm as Iron Man. Sounds like a pretty solid cast to me.

Jon Hamm as Iron Man is pretty inspired, I'm not gonna lie :p.

And hey, Nathan Fillion gets to actually play Simon Williams! As Wonder Man, to boot ;).

Kind of curious what Bill Hader's Leader will sound like...

It's a shame the Howard show won't be happening, that was the one I was looking forward to most- it's especially becoming more of a bummer seeing how different and higher the levels of production are for the MODOK show. That's exciting and fun and I wish we'd get more lol.

Same. I'm gutted that said shows were scrapped as a result of Marvel Television's folding.

I think this is the rumor that was recently brought up in the "Future of Marvel Animation" topic. I'm kind of skeptical myself, don't know how accurate the source is but the Deadline article they included in the article doesn't mention anything about Deadpool.
