The Hulu and Marvel original series M.O.D.O.K panel answered some of the questions we are curious about how they created the series. Executive produced by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, the panel included Melissa Fumero, Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz and Jon Daly and special guests.
The series is stop motion animation from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios famous for their work on Robot Chicken and their specials. This unique look and animation gives M.O.D.O.K a comic book style design that transfers over smoothly to television animation.
The panel answered many fan questions about the origin of the show and how the panel guests got involved with it. They also revealed some special cameos like Jon Hamm, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Fillion and Bill Hader. One of the things that Patton and Jordan wanted was cameos by M.O.D.O.K’s creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby,
The Panel ended by showing a clip of a fight between M.O.D.O.K and Monica. The short clip allowed viewers to see the tone and style that the series is going to take. The clip is highly entertaining and does not spoil anything about the show.
M.O.D.O.K premieres on Hulu, May 21st.
