Marvel has axed it’s upcoming Howard the Duck animated series, and quite frankly ruined this particular writer’s day.
You may remember about a year ago when we reported with some degree of excitement that Marvel had joined forces with Hulu to bring some of its lesser-known characters to the small screen in all-new animated adventures. This included M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, and a Howard the Duck reboot from Kevin Smith and Dave Willis.
Well here we are, less than 12 months later and the Marvel/Hulu alliance has proved itself to be nothing more than a decoy for the collectives’ greater goal of crushing one man’s dreams of seeing his favorite ducktective back in the public consciousness.
Thanks a bunch, Marvel. You suck.
The M.O.D.O.K. and Hit-Monkey shows are still scheduled to go ahead … but don’t get too excited, they’ll probably be canned too.
