The upcoming animated show sees Patton Oswalt voice Marvel’s titular villain in a more light-hearted representation. The series follows the supervillain as he tries to pursue his dream of one day conquering the world. However, after many years of failures and fighting the Earth’s greatest superheroes, M.O.D.O.K. has finally run his evil organization A.I.M into bankruptcy. M.O.D.O.K. is ousted as their leader while dealing with personal issues including a crumbling marriage and family life.
M.O.D.O.K. star Patton Oswalt is joined by Melissa Fumero, Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz, Jon Daly, Sam Richardson, Beck Bennett and Wendi McLendon-Covey. Oswalt also executive produces the show alongside Jordan Blum.
M.O.D.O.K. was initially part of a larger slate of animated Marvel TV series expected to hit Hulu in 2019. However, three of the four shows are now defunct. When Marvel TV shut down that year, Jeph Loeb, then-studio head left the company and the future of Marvel TV was placed on the shoulders of Kevin Feige‘s Marvel Studio division. M.O.D.O.K. is expected to be a final glimpse at the company’s alternative path towards comic adaptations before MCU finally takes over.
