Kevin Smith’s series Howard the Duck as well as Tigra & Dazzler series have been cancelled at Hulu.
Only a few weeks ago, Kevin Smith was giving us updates on his Howard the Duck series. He declared “Now, Marvel TV won’t cease to exist it’s just becoming this different version. I hear the Hulu shows are still alive. So far, so good for Howard the Duck. I’ll let you know if anything happens”. The project was still alive and the fans were reassured. Howard the Duck made a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, including in the post-credits scene. The character also had its own movie, produced by George Lucas in 1986.
Concerning the series, Hulu had even released the plot in 2019 when the project was announced: “Marvel’s Howard The Duck is trapped in a world he never made, but America’s favorite fighting fowl hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him the crispiest dish on the menu.” Tigra & Dazzler was also canceled along with Howard the Duck. The show was already looking for a new showrunner since Erica Rivinoja (and the writers) left for creative differences.

Kevin Smith declared “I got a text from Dave Willis in the morning saying, ‘We got Tigra and Dazzler’d,’ I called him and asked ‘Is that what I think that means?’ And Dave said he had just got the word that there will be no Howard the Duck show. The only explanation was ‘We have no plans for this character at this time”. He continued “We had a lot of great writers who put in a lot of really hard work and came up with some inventive scripts, but we all got paid, so no one’s complaining. But we were all there to do the show, so that’s a bit of a bummer.” He finally tweeted,”Alas, Howard remains trapped in a world he never made. Thanks to [Jeph Loeb], [Dave Willis], and the Best Duckin’ Writer’s Room for all the effort. May we all (Marvel) meet again one day on something else!”
