Marvel's Hit-Monkey Trailer Delivers Animated Ape Action And Jason Sudeikis
The animated Hulu show also stars Olivia Munn and arrives on November 17.
The trailer for Marvel's Hit-Monkey has been released. The animated series stars Ted Lasso's Jason Sudeikis, and it premieres on Hulu on November 17.
Hit-Monkey is based on the Marvel comic book by Daniel Way and Dalibor Talajić. The title character is indeed a monkey who becomes an assassin--specifically, a Japanese Macaque out for vengeance against a criminal gang. Sudeikis voices Bryce, a deceased hitman who appears only to Hit-Monkey, and offers him advice from beond the grave. It looks like an unusual, action-packed series that at the very least stand out from other Marvel shows out there. Check the trailer out below:
Hit-Monkey's voice-cast also includes George Takei (Star Trek) as a politician named Shinji and Olivia Munn (the X-Men movies, The Predator) as his niece Akiko. The showrunners are Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who are best known for directing the hit comedies Blades of Glory and Office Christmas Party.
The show was first announced back in 2019, when it was one of four new animated Marvel shows in development at Hulu. One of these was Patton Oswalt's MODOK, which premiered back in May. However, the other two shows--Tigra & Dazzler Show and Howard The Duck--were both canceled before they reached production.
The next live-action Marvel show will be Hawkeye, which arrives on Disney+ on November 24. The series stars Jeremy Renner as Clint Booth and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop--check out the trailer here.
