Did You Know A Marvel Horror Series Is Coming To Hulu?
Now here’s a project that came in slightly under the radar! Hulu just dropped a trailer for a new horror series coming to the network called Helstrom which is based on the grim gothic comic books from Marvel.
The synopsis for the show reads:
As the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer, “Helstrom” follows Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon), and their complicated dynamic, as they track down the worst of humanity — each with their own attitude and skills. Additional cast members include Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, Ariana Guerra, June Carryl, and Alain Uy.
The 10 episode series will premiere on the streaming network (which is also owned by Disney) on Friday, October 16th. The series was created by Paul Zbyszewsk (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) He is also producing the series alongside Karim Zreik (Defenders and Jessica Jones) and Jeph Loeb (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Daredevil.)
Though Helstorm is a Marvel Cinematic Universe Show it’s new trailer suggests that the Marvel connection is definitely being toned down perhaps due to the darker nature of the series. Afterall, and as IndieWire tells us, the Helstorm comics are rooted in Satanic horror making for a very creepy gothic aesthetic.
As you can see from the logo above, Marvel branding has been removed from the trailer. There is no word yet on if/how this series will play into the broader Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Disney+ streaming service will also be home to several Marvel-focused projects including WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye and more!
On a positive note, the trailer and the upcoming premiere date is good news for fans of all-things Marvel since projects like Falcon and the Winter Soldier and even Black Widow have been delayed due to COVID-19. You can check out the official trailer for the series below:
