Hulu announced the dark and horror-filled Marvel’s Helstrom will be joining the online version of the annual SDCC, now named Comic-Con@Home where panels will be streamed online free of charge.
Along with the Paul Zbyszewski EP’d Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon making its SDCC debut, Hulu will also be bringing the Thomas Middleditch-led aliens comedy Solar Opposites and the raunchy Crossing Swords.
Hulu Original Helstrom follows Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon), and thei complicated dynamic, as they track down the worst of humanity — each with their own attitude and skills.
Hulu Original Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who escape their exploding home world only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
Hulu Original Crossing Swords follows Patrick, a good hearted peasant who lands a coveted squire position at the royal castle. His dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when he learns his beloved kingdom is run by a hornet’s nest of horny monarchs, crooks and charlatans. Even worse, Patrick’s valor made him the black sheep in his family, and now his criminal siblings have returned to make his life hell. War, murder, full frontal nudity—who knew brightly colored peg people led such exciting lives?
