Kevin Feige’s Marvel-tocracy continues to take form in sweeping change as Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler, both planned for Hulu streaming service has been canceled.
Initially, the series production was paused in December as part of a creative overhaul. And with the root characters gone, the same characters that make up the animated crossover event The Offenders is likely not to go forward either.
Despite this, only two series from the planned Hulu branch is still ongoing, ie. MODOK and Hit Monkey.
A week before this decision saw Hulu senior VP scripted originals Craig Erwich say:
I have seen quite a few episodes of MODOK, which I’m really excited about. Helstrom, we’re currently in production on. I’ve seen the first four episodes of that as well and I’m really excited about it. It is a definitely a different corner of the Marvel universe in terms of its horror. It’s a really unique take on a horror show and that has a very unique family situation at the center of it. So, we’ll be announcing dates of those soon.
So much for all that.
And to have the whole writing team behind Tigra & Dazzler let go 15 of 20 weeks in, has got to suck. But the writing was on the wall. Disney+ eco-system will not stand for stragglers.
