Marvel’s “Howard the Duck,” “Tigra & Dazzler” Animated Series Not Moving Forward at Hulu

Back in February of last year, Marvel and Hulu announced a deal to create four new animated series. Unfortunately, now that lineup has been cut in half. Marvel’s Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler Show will not be moving forward at Hulu, according to Variety.

  • Marvel reportedly made the call to not to move forward with the two shows.
  • They will however still be moving forward with the other two new animated series – M.O.D.O.K. and Hit-Monkey.
  • The Offenders, the planned crossover between the four series, has also been cancelled as a result of the potential team being cut in half.
  • It was reported last month that Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show showrunner Erica Rivinoja and the show’s writing team had left the project due to creative and differences.
  • That departure halted production on the new series, leading to the cancellation.
  • Marvel’s Howard the Duck was set to be written and executive produced by Kevin Smith and Dave Willis.
  • The news of these cancellations comes just over a month after the announcement of the closure of Marvel TV, which would be folded into Marvel Studios.
  • In addition to the cancellation of these two animated series, a live-action Ghost Rider series set to star Gabriel Luna was also cancelled back in September.
  • However, Marvel’s planned live-action Helstrom series is still currently in production.
  • The Marvel and Hulu series Runaways debuted its third and final season in December.
  • That leaves Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the only remaining Marvel TV series, and that will end its run on ABC this spring with its seventh and final season.
