Marvel's Animated Tigra & Dazzler Show Loses Entire Writing Team
Tigra & Dazzler Show runs into problems as showrunner exits.
While there's plenty of excitement about the various Marvel shows in development for Disney+, things aren't quite as healthy for some of the other Marvel series made elsewhere. Following the cancellation of Cloak and Dagger and the news that the live-action Ghost Rider show won't be happening, it's been reported that the animated Tigra & Dazzler Show has run into problems.
According to Variety, Tigra & Dazzler Show showrunner Erica Rivinoja has left the series, along with the entire writing staff. Rivinoja and her team reportedly differed from Marvel on the creative direction of the series, and the studio is now looking for a new showrunner to take the project in a different direction. Variety notes that the writers could return, depending on who Rivinoja's replacement is.
Tigra & Dazzler Show was one of four new animated Marvel series that are being developed at Hulu. The others are M.O.D.O.K, which will be co-written by comedian and actor Patton Oswalt, Hit-Monkey, from Blade of Glory directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck, and Howard The Duck, from filmmaker and comic book icon Kevin Smith. When the shows were first announced in February, it was reported that the plan was for all four sets of heroes to come together for a Hulu special titled The Offenders.
Ghost Rider was also being developed for Hulu, with Gabriel Luna set to reprise his role as Robbie Reyes from Agents of SHIELD. However, in September, the whole show was cancelled due to "a creative impasse" that "could not be resolved.' Another supernatural-themed Marvel series, titled Helstrom, is still happening at Hulu however.
As for Marvel shows on Disney+, Falcon and Winter Soldier recently started production. Other upcoming series include Loki, WandaVision, Hawkeye, and She-Hulk. For more check out GameSpot's guide to every Marvel movie and show to watch right now on Disney+.
