Marvel’s New Adult Cartoon-M.O.D.O.K

There is a lot of hype about the content that Marvel has been and will be continuing to bring to Disney plus and the big screen in the future but if you didn’t know they are also bringing one of the most formidable villains in Marvel comics, M.O.D.O.K to the small screen on Hulu in his own show.

Animated in the vain of ‘Robot Chicken’, the hit stop motion parody show on Adult Swim, the show will be available to stream this month on the 21st and will be an adult comedy cartoon and when I say adult, I mean adult. This isn’t an Avengers or Spiderman cartoon able to be shown to kids of all ages on Disney channel. It is rated R; there is explicit language, blood, gore but from what we’ve seen so far some pretty cool fight scenes also, so viewer discretion is advised.

Here’s an official synopsis of the show:

In Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K. (Patton Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet!

As of now, no. M.O.D.O.K. the show is separate from the MCU, for example, what is happening with Wanda and Vision and the new Captain America and Bucky but there is a new comic series that is already melding the character into the official cannon. So if he were to end up in the MCEU at some point, it would probably be a long way off.

Check out the trailer here!

What do you guys think? Will be checking out M.O.D.O.K. on Hulu, this May 21st on Hulu? Let us know!
