Yesterday, Marvel officially announced the voice cast for their mature animated series titled M.O.D.O.K., which would be a comedy show centred around the large-headed Marvel Comics villain.
Well, voice cast member Jon Daly (voices Super Adaptoid) revealed on Instagram that the series will be stop motion animation and will be coming from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the animation company best known for producing the popular Adult Swim series Robot Chicken.

Very excited about this project I’m working on for Marvel/HULU – M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only For Killing) is stop motion animated at @stoopidbuddystoodios and insanely cool funny and ridiculous and stars @pattonoswalt – a “no-brainer!!!!!!” #MODOK #Marvel #MCU #superadaptoid #HULU
I’m slightly curious if they’ll be attempting something like the Marvel Super Heroes: What The–?! shorts.
Interesting enough, the press release from yesterday included the new name for Marvel’s television division which is now being overseen by Kevin Feige, as they’ll now be called Marvel TV Studios (formerly Marvel Television).
Marvel TV and HULU unveiled Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., the previously announced animated series, will include the voices of Patton Oswalt, Aimee Garcia, Melissa Fumero,Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ben Schwartz, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly and Sam Richardson! Slated for debut this year, Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. signals Marvel’s first endeavor into animated comedy geared towards adults.
In Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K. (Patton Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet: a midlife crisis!
Stop motion animation will certainly be interesting to see as a streaming series and might take a little longer to complete than traditional animation processes.
