Marvel has a new animated show with Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Munn – heres the first Hit-Monkey trailer

Marvel has a new animated show on the way, and the first trailer is finally here.

Hit-Monkey sees a Japanese snow macaque go on a killing spree while exacting revenge for the death of his former mentor, Bryce, voiced by Ted Lasso actor and creator Jason Sudeikis. Despite being dead, Bryce has a big presence on the show, as he’s become a ghostly A.I. who guides Hit-Monkey. 

The trailer is as batshit as all that sounds and teases appearances from Olivia Munn and George Takai on the show. Watch below.

Hit-Monkey was commissioned by Marvel before the superhero studio began pushing new Disney Plus shows. Along with MODOK, the new series will be released on Hulu in the United States and does not have any connective tissue to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, Marvel’s shows on Hulu were originally envisioned as being part of a separate shared universe, MODOK and Hit-Monkey meeting in an Avengers-like team-up named The Offenders, though plans were scuppered when MCU maestro Kevin Feige took charge of Marvel’s TV output.

Jordan Blum, who co-created MODOK with Paton Oswalt, serves as co-creator of Hit-Monkey with Will Speck (Office Christmas Party, Switched). “[Hit-Monkey]’s a character who is violent and temper­amental but also deeply wounded and innocent,” Blum told Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab) while previewing the new show.

Meanwhile, Sudeikis has been winning Emmys for Ted Lasso, and Munn has been busy with roles in Netflix’s America: The Motion Picture, and The Gateway.
