Hulu has canceled the Howard the Duck and Tygra & Dazzler and has put the future of The Offenders crossover into question.
This news comes after reports of production problems for Tygra & Dazzler which had been put on halt back in December due to creative differences with Marvel. The writing staff of the Hulu Tygra & Dazzler series was reportedly let go from the series with their work scrapped. The staff of the Hulu series was reportedly going to be replaced but this sadly never happened. While there is no official word on why the series was canceled, it is possible that the cost of redoing all the work for Tygra & Dazzler may have factored into it.
Sadly for Marvel fans, no explanation was given to the cancellation of the Hulu Howard the Duck series. The character has made several cameos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most notably in the Guardians of the Galaxy films but has not had a major role in any of them. Unfortunately, because of this, it may be some time before Howard the Duck gets to headline his own series or film again.
The Hulu cancellations of Howard the Duck and Tygra & Dazzler are sadly becoming common tale in Marvel television. All of the Marvel Netflix shows were canceled over the course of a year and currently show no signs of revival. The Ghostrider series at Hulu was also canceled. Hulu’s Runaways is also getting the ax and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is entering its final season. Whether or not Howard the Duck and Tygra & Dazzler‘s cancellation are part of some larger plan, however, remains to be seen.
What do you all make of this news? Are you sad to hear that Howard the Duck and Tygra & Dazzler are not moving forward at Hulu? Are you looking forward to Hulu’s other Marvel shows? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Howard the Duck and Tygra & Dazzler were part of a four-show animated slate which also included MODOK and Hit-Monkey which was all set to culminate in The Offenders crossover. While MODOK and Hit-Monkey are still happening at Hulu, The Offenders crossover is now far less likely.
