News broke recently that Hulu had teamed with Marvel to produce a series of adult oriented animated shows, and it seems like the streaming service isn’t stopping there as they have expressed an interest in bringing back shows like Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to their platform.
While speaking with TheWrap, the Hulu Senior Vice President of Originals said the following:
“Marvel has a ton of titles we’d be interested in. It kind of just depends on when they’re ready, [and] who, most importantly, is going to be behind these things,”
While Hulu may want to resurrect the Defenders series on their platform, they would have to wait, as a clause in the original contract between Marvel TV and Netflix states that the characters cannot appear in any television shows or movies for two years.
Hulu isnt new to the Marvel universe as they are home to Marvel’s Runaways, which focuses on six teenagers, some with powers and some without, who discover their parents are criminals and must team up to stop them.
Created by Steve Lightfoot, The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Daniel Webber, Paul Schulze, Jason R. Moore, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Deborah Ann Woll, Josh Stewart, Floriana Lima, and Giorgia Whigham. Check out the synopsis below:
“In the first season, Frank Castle, known throughout New York City as “the Punisher” after exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his family, uncovers a larger conspiracy beyond what was done to him and his family. The second season sees Castle, who has been living a quiet life on the road, drawn into the mystery surrounding the attempted murder of Amy Bendix, forcing him to decide if he should embrace his life as the Punisher.”
Both seasons of The Punisher are now streaming on Netflix!
