Marvel fans have long wanted Kevin Smith to take on the foul-mouthed Howard the Duck character, and those dreams are turning into reality. Along with Aqua Teen Hunger Force co-creator Dave Willis, Smith is writing and producing an adult-oriented Howard the Duck animated series for Marvel and Hulu, and he’s blissful to finally have the chance.
Smith took to Twitter, after the series announcement was made on Monday morning, to share his excitement with the fans. Don’t worry, plenty of duck puns were involved.
“Thank you to Marvel & hulu for letting me do fowl things to Howard in animation,” Smith wrote. “But the *real* brains of our operation is a legit cartoon genius – the great Meatwad himself, Aqua Teen Hunger Force‘s David Willis! Prepare to get Ducked hard!”
Kevin Smith and David Willis are set to write Howard the Duck, which will follow the titular character’s journey home to Earth with his “unstoppable gal pal” Beverly as he avoids the villainous Dr. Bong.
