Fair warning: If you watch this trailer, you will have Third Eye Blind stuck in your head for the rest of the day. It’s not just playing over the wacky hijinks of big-headed M.O.D.O.K.; it’s… well, you’ll see. (Doot doot doot! Doot doot doot doooooo!)
M.O.D.O.K. is next up on Marvel’s TV series plate, though the animated show will be on Hulu rather than Disney+. Patton Oswalt voices the titular Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, who’s having a rough go of it on multiple fronts: His family is struggling, his business is bankrupt, and no one took out the trash. How will he bring the world to its knees with all these other problems on his plate?
M.O.D.O.K.’s stop-motion style is courtesy of Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken). The series is created by star Patton Oswalt and showrunner Jordan Blum, and co-stars Aimee Garcia (Lucifer), Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog) as M.O.D.O.K.’s family.
If this Iron Man sounds both familiar and definitely not like Robert Downey Jr., that’s because here, he’s voiced by Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm. The rest of the cast includes Nathan Fillion as Wonder Man; Bill Hader as both The Leader and Angar the Screamer; and Whoopi Goldberg as Marian Pouncy, also known as Poundcakes.
All ten episodes of M.O.D.O.K. arrive on Hulu on May 21st. Maybe by then “Semi-Charmed Life” will be out of your head?
