Marvel TV may be cutting through its live-action shows like adamantium through butter, but its animation division is just getting warmed up. Several shows remain in development and one just took a giant step forward. Or should we say giant brain forward?
Hulu and Marvel just announced the complete voice cast for M.O.D.O.K., which is being touted as â€œMarvel’s first endeavour into animated comedy geared towards adults.â€
fan-favourite Marvel villain who, in this show, goes through a midlife crisis after his supervillain endeavours fail and he’s forced out of the leadership of his evil company, AIM.
Oswalt is joined by Dexter‘s Aimee Garcia as Jodie, M.O.D.O.K.’s wife; Parks and Recreation‘s Ben Schwartz as his son; Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Melissa Fumero as his daughter; The Goldbergs‘ Wendi McLendon-Covey as M.O.D.O.K.’s work rival Monica Rappaccini; Saturday Night Live‘s Beck Bennet as Austin Van Der Sleet, the person who buys M.O.D.O.K.’s company after it fails; Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Jon Daly as Super Adaptoid; and Veep’s Sam Richardson as the henchman, Gary.
â€œI’m blown away by our insanely talented and hilarious voice cast, who have all brought their specific kind of magic to this weird and wonderful corner of the Marvel Universe,â€ showrunner Jordan Blum said in a statement.
M.O.D.O.K. is scheduled to debut on Hulu sometime later this year. Where it’ll end up in Australia is currently unknown.
