Hulu’s big 2019 Upfront Presentation kicked off today at Madison Square Garden, introducing several big projects and confirming two Marvel projects. At the event, Marvel and Hulu announced two live-action series coming to Hulu from the Marvel universe, one being “Marvel’s Ghost Rider” and the other is “Marvel’s Helstrom.” Both of the series are slated to debut on Hulu in 2020, joining an already growing slate of Marvel adaptations and series.
Marvel’s Ghost Rider, also known as Robbie Reyes, is a quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. Reyes lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields. Marvel’s Ghost Rider is executive produced by Ingrid Escajeda, who will serve as showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.
Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer in Marvel’s Helstrom. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills. Marvel’s Helstrom is executive produced by Paul Zbyszewski, who will serve as showrunner and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.
The two series are co-productions with Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.
With Disney owning a prominent share of Hulu, the platform has started to improve its Marvel offerings. A third season of “Marvel’s Runaways” is on the way to the platform, and a recently announced adult animated series based on popular Marvel Television characters is also on the way. Those series include “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K,” “Marvel’s Hit-Monkey,” “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show” and “Marvel’s Howard The Duck,” which will culminate in a special event, Marvel’s The Offenders.
