Amusing Trailer for 'Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.' Villain Stop-Motion Series
"I shall reclaim my family!" Hulu has unveiled the official trailer for a new animated series streaming in May called Marvel's M.O.D.O.K., about an egomaniacal super villain. This stop-motion animated series is from one of the lead animators on "Robot Chicken", and features 10 episodes of mayhem and depression. M.O.D.O.K., a bad guy with a really big head and a really little body, struggles to maintain control of his evil organization after it is bought by a multinational tech company, while juggling the needs of his demanding family. Patton Oswalt stars as the voice of M.O.D.O.K.; he's joined by Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz, Melissa Fumero, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly, and Sam Richardson. And for those curious his name stands for "Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing" but it seems like he's got other big problems to deal with like a divorce and his kids. Ahaha this looks hilarious.
