With its partnership with Netflix winding down, Marvel TV is taking its characters to Hulu, signing a hefty deal for multiple animated series, including "Howard the Duck."

The agreement will see Marvel TV produce four adult animated series — "Howard the Duck," "M.O.D.O.K.." "Hit-Monkey" and "Tigra & Dazzler" — that will culminate in a crossover special, "The Offenders." The four series are being written and executive produced by the likes of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Smith, Chelsea Handler, and the "Blades of Glory" directing team of Josh Gordon and Will Speck.

Sony’s ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Trailer: 130M Views In 24 Hours Breaks Studio Record

Sony’s ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Trailer: 130M Views In 24 Hours Breaks Studio Record This week’s online release of a teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was an off-the-wall sensation for Sony’s Columbia Pictures racking up 130 million views in its first 24 frenetic hours. The massive response made Tuesday’s trailer debut the biggest digital launch in the history of Sony Pictures, topping the mark set by Spider-Man: Homecoming (116 million views in 24 hours). That July 2017 release went on to gross $334.2 million domestically and $880.1 million worldwide.

The deal comes as Marvel's parent company Disney is about to assume 60 percent control of Hulu as part of its deal with 21st Century Fox.

The 1986 live-action "Howard the Duck" film was a critical and commercial failure, though it's gained a cult following since. A computer-generated version of "Howard the Duck" (voiced by Seth Green) has made cameos in both "Guardians of the Galaxy" films.

Ron Howard to make doc about town devastated by wildfires

Ron Howard to make doc about town devastated by wildfires Director Ron Howard is planning to make a documentary about a California town's attempt to rebuild after the destruction of the 2018 California wildfires. National Geographic Documentary Films announced the project Thursday which will focus on the Sierra Nevada foothills town of Paradise, California. In November of 2018, the wildfires took over 14,000 homes and displaced over 50,000 people. Its working title is "Rebuilding Paradise." Howard said he has relatives in the area and was drawn to the universal human experience of the tragedy.

Oswalt is writing "Marvel's M.O.D.O.K," which centers around an egomaniacal supervillain with a really big head and a really little body, who struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family. Jordan Blum is co-writer and executive producer. Gordan and Speck are writing "Marvel's Hit-Monkey," which tells the darkly cinematic and brutally funny revenge 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.

"Marvel's The Offenders" is a story in which MODOK, Dazzler, Tigra, Hit Monkey and Howard the Duck are all forced to team up in order to save the world and certain parts of the Universe. The one-off special doesn't have a writer yet. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb serves as executive producer on all the series.

RIP Trevor the 'world's loneliest duck'

RIP Trevor the 'world's loneliest duck' Trevor, the only duck on the Pacific island of Niue, lived in a puddle and was cared for by locals.

The deal with Hulu is very similar to the one Marvel TV signed with Netflix back in 2015, in which the studio was to produce four live-action series that also culminated with a team-up special. But that partnership appears to be ending. Netflix has already canceled "Daredevil," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage." With the second season of "The Punisher" debuting last month, only the third season of "Jessica Jones" remains from that deal.

Marvel TV's big-screen counterparts, Marvel Studios, are also developing multiple TV series for Disney+ that will star characters from the films including Loki, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

Why ‘Lego Movie 2’ Stumbled at the Box Office.
Heading into the weekend, Warner Bros. expected everything would be awesome. Instead, executives on the Burbank lot are feeling a pain not unlike the sharp sting you suffer from stepping on a tiny plastic toy. The studio’s animated sequel “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” fell short of expectations, earning $34.4 million when it opened in 4,303 venues. It was enough to top domestic box office charts, but it arrived $15 million behind even modest estimates from both the studio and independent tracking services, and almost 50% behind the start of its predecessor, 2014’s “The Lego Movie.
