Now, because the consummate Marvel fan and shepherd of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.Ok. on, Blum feels compelled to make a daring declare.
“I would argue that we have the most Easter eggs out of any Marvel thing ever. I know because I wrote them all down. I didn’t count them, but it’s like a six page document, if that tells you anything.”
All Marvel TV collection and flicks are anticipated to deliver a certain quantity of Easter eggs to the popular culture desk. The interconnectedness of the Marvel universe is a giant a part of the franchise’s enchantment. Marvel’s M.O.D.O.Ok., nonetheless, might have been forgiven for going simpler on its reference obligations.
That’s as a result of M.O.D.O.Ok. is a really atypical effort from Marvel Studios. Centering on the titular, big-headed supervillain (performed by Patton Oswalt, who co-created the present alongside Blum), M.O.D.O.Ok. isn’t technically part of the continued Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ in exhibits like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki. As a stop-motion animated office household comedy, M.O.D.O.Ok. is a little bit of an odd duck within the Marvel storytelling world…which is becoming as one of many present’s sister collection on Hulu was set to be Howard the Duck earlier than Marvel declined to maneuver ahead with it.
M.O.D.O.Ok. was supposed to be one half of a bigger “The Offenders” storytelling universe that includes offbeat characters like Hit Monkey, Tigra, Dazzler, and the aforementioned Howard. M.O.D.O.Ok. is now the final Marvel present standing on the streamer, disconnected from the MCU at giant and deserted by its Offenders’ friends. No one would blame the present for specializing in growing its personal tone relatively than shouting out different Marvel fare. But as consummate comedian ebook followers, Blum and Oswalt can’t assist however embrace the fervour of different comedian ebook followers.
“We were able to put some stuff in the background that rewards the comic fans,” Blum says. “There’s graffiti for the Yancy Street Gang on the subway. There’s a whole pawn shop filled with Marvel weapons and relics and things that, if you’re a fan you’ll recognize, to anyone else they’re just set dressing.”
