As a third season of the Schwartz and Stephanie Savage created Marvel's Runaways seems a sure bet, Hulu is hoping to strongly up its Marvel game and to resurrect the reputation of the acerbic Howard The Duck, who got plucked in that awful 1986 feature film, as part of its big programming chess move.

Disney will own a majority stake in Hulu once it receives regulatory approval for its purchase of film and television businesses from Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox Inc, which is expected in the coming months. When they do debut, they'll join Marvel's live-action Hulu hit The Runaways, which is expected to be picked up for a third season soon.

With Marvel TV overlord Jeph Loeb also involved in each show, the aim is to have the characters team-up in a special called The Offenders. And the duck. Brought together because no one else could but Marvel Television on Hulu. Writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis will also executive produce along with Jeph Loeb.

In "Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.", M.O.D.O.K, an egomaniacal Super Villain with a really big head and a really little body, struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family.

Finally, Marvel's Howard The Duck focuses on the travails of the talking duck character first created by Steve Gerber as a play on a classic "funny animal" character trapped in a world he never made. "Marvel's M.O.D.O.K." comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, with Blum, Oswalt and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck will executive produce Marvel's Hit-Monkey, "the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld".

Hit-Monkey: "Marvel's Hit-Monkey tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally amusing revenge saga".

Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show is a story about two woke superheroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, as they fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles.

No launch dates were announced but the shows will all be under the purview of executive vice president of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. On Monday, Marvel Studios announced that it will be teaming up with Hulu for four new adult animated series, including Howard the Duck, following a similar format to the Defenders series that previously launched on Netflix, starting with Daredevil. Jeph Loeb will executive produce.
