As if the name does not spell it out clearly, Hit-Monkey is a rather strange property in the Marvel library. Yet, despite seeming too “out there” for the mainstream, it has come up as a possible adaption before with James Gunn expressing interest.
Wisely, Marvel decided animation was a good place to start for this story of a Japanese snow monkey who, after being mentored by an assassin, goes on a mission of revenge. Think John Wick as a monkey. The Hulu show will be written and executive produced by Josh Gordon and Will Speck (Blades of Glory, Office Christmas Party).
