Back in October, the first clips from the show were released, showcasing the more adult-oriented series and Patton Oswalt’s voice work as the titular villain. Along with M.O.D.O.K., other Marvel characters will appear on the show, including some major X-Men villains.
In the comics, M.O.D.O.K. is the leader of the evil scientific organization A.I.M., short for Advanced Idea Mechanics. The Hulu series will follow the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing as he tries to rebuild his marriage after losing control of A.I.M. However, instead of facing the likes of Iron Man or other superheroes, M.O.D.O.K.’s nemesis will be a rival company called GRUMBL that ends up purchasing A.I.M. GRUMBL is led by Austin Van Der Sleet (SNL‘s Beck Bennett).
Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. stars Patton Oswalt as M.O.D.O.K., Aimee Garcia as Jodie, Ben Schwartz as Lou, Melissa Fumero as Melissa, Wendi McLendon-Covey as Monica Rappaccini, Beck Bennett as Austin Van Der Sleet, Jon Daly as Super Adaptoid and Sam Richardson as Gary. The series will stream on Hulu, though it has yet to receive a premiere date.
