Will More Mature Marvel Content Come to Disney+ and Hulu? After the news that Disney would be dropping the Marvel Television studios label, many fans expected current Marvel Television projects to be dropped in a similar manner. Other Marvel shows such as Howard The Duck and Tigra & Dazzler were shelved before they could premiere and Helstrom was cancelled after a single season. Despite these changes, a renewed interest in mature animated series may save several Marvel projects including M.O.D.O.K., the upcoming animated show Hit Monkey, and open the door to more mature content from Marvel.
At the moment neither M.O.D.O.K. nor Hit Monkey are considered “canon” under the Marvel Studios label, and it is very unlikely that they will ever be added into the MCU timeline (even as Multiverse branches). Currently, M.O.D.O.K. is awaiting approval for a second season, and Head of Scripted Content at Hulu Jordan Helman shares he is hopeful that the series will continue and will allow Hulu to explore more mature animated content with Marvel.
“Marvel continues to be an incredibly important partner and one of the biggest generators of content within the Disney ecosystem so we’re excited about the possibility of what may lie in the future with regards to the Hulu/Marvel relationship,” adding, “Given Marvel’s place in the Disney ecosystem, it seems like an incredibly robust avenue for future projects.”
Helman did share he has not spoken with Marvel Studios or President Kevin Feige about the potential for crossover work, which leads us to believe the shows featured on Hulu will stay “non-canon” and remain exclusive to the Disney+ sister streaming service and International Hot Star services.
