Three of the five Marvel-Netflix series are dead with the other two expected to be killed off soon. While some have long held onto the hope the show’s would be revived on either the new Disney+ streaming service or the newly Disney majority-owned Hulu, there’s been zero indication from anyone about such a possibility.
That has somewhat changed this week as The Wrap has spoken with Craig Erwich, the senior vice president of originals at Hulu, and asked him if Hulu had any interest in bringing back any of those shows on its service. He told them:
“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… We’ve had a relationship with Marvel since Runaways, we’re getting into business on these animated shows. I’m sure it will lead to – you know, business gets you business – we have a good creative relationship with them. That’s where opportunities tend to arise.”
Earlier reports on licensing contracts suggest the absolute earliest any of these shows could hit the air on Hulu would be late 2020/early 2021. However, in the wake of Hulu announcing a deal to bring several animated Marvel shows to the streaming service and Disney+ concentrating on its own new titles to sell the service – the possibility still seems slim.
