HN Entertainment has been able to exclusively reveal that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. director Kevin Tancharoen has joined the directing team on the Marvel TV Studios/Hulu streaming series Helstrom based the Marvel Comics horror superheroes Son of Satan and Satana.
Kevin’s credits include Titans, Iron Fist, Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, 12 Monkeys, Inhumans, and Mortal Kombat: Legacy.
In Marvel’s Helstrom, Daimon (aka Son of Satan) and Ana Helstrom (aka Satana) are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills.
Tom Austen (The Borgias) and Sydney Lemmon (Succession, Fear The Walking Dead) will be leading the series as the two Helstrom siblings.
Other directors we’ve exclusively reported on that are working on the Marvel series include Diana Reid (The Handmaid’s Tale), Michael Offer (The Punisher, Homeland), Amanda Row (Cloak & Dagger), Jovanka Vuckovic (Riot Girls), Sanford Bookstaver (Jessica Jones), Bill Roe (The Blacklist, Castle), and Cherie Nowlan (Suits, How To Get Away With Murder).
Helstrom is expected to be the final live-action series from the Jeph Loeb era of Marvel Television as the company under Kevin Feige has been recently rebranded as Marvel TV Studios.
A Ghost Rider series starring Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) had also been in the works for Hulu as well but was suddenly cancelled by Marvel.
Marvel recently cancelled two animated projects at Hulu that include Tigra & Dazzler which had lost its showrunner over creative differences and Kevin Smith’s Howard The Duck.
Kevin Feige last year was promoted to Marvel’s chief creative officer giving him oversight on film, television, animation, and publishing divisions at the company.
He’s been highly focused on making a new wave of live-action Marvel shows that directly interlink with the feature film side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe starting with the first wave of shows on Disney+ that includes The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, Ms Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk.
Hulu has yet to announce a drop date for Helstrom.
