    M.O.D.O.K. announcing a May 21 premiere date on the streaming
    service. The new teaser can be viewed in the player below!

    Teaser Trailer: (58secs)

    In Marvel's M.O.D.O.K., the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K.
    (Patton Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering
    the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the
    Earth's mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization
    A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.'s leader, while also
    dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental
    Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest
    challenge yet: a midlife crisis!

    The cast also includes Aimee Garcia (Lucifer), Ben Schwartz (Sonic
    the Hedgehog), Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids), Melissa Fumero
    (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Beck Bennet (Saturday Night Live, Bill & Ted
    Face The Music), Sam Richardson (Werewolves Within) and Jon Daly
    (The Kroll Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm).

    Garcia will play Jodie, M.O.D.O.K.'s wife and mother to his
    children, who has had a late-in-life awakening - excited to pursue
    her mommy-blog turned lifestyle-brand empire and discover who she
    is as an independent woman in her forties. There are just too many
    things to do in this world and not enough time to waste being held
    back by negativity. And unfortunately for M.O.D.O.K., the thing
    weighing her down the most... is him.

    Schwartz will voice Lou. To be honest, M.O.D.O.K. doesn't really
    "get" his twelve-year-old son Lou. Not athletic enough to be a jock.
    Not smart enough to be a nerd. Lou is... well, Lou - a kid who clearly
    marches to the beat of his own drum. Lou's lack of friends,
    ambition, and hygiene is a constant worry for M.O.D.O.K., who often
    projects his own insecurities onto his overly confident son.

    Fumero is Melissa. Even with her father's "features,"
    seventeen-year-old Melissa has risen the ranks to become the
    Heathers-like queen bee of her school and a star in the world of
    teen figure skating. Every popular kid either wants to date her or
    avoid her terrifying wrath. But for all of her success, Melissa
    secretly yearns for her father's approval.

    McLendon-Covey will play Monica Rappaccini, a brilliant mad-scientist
    at A.I.M. and M.O.D.O.K.'s rival at work. Clearly more competent and
    qualified than M.O.D.O.K., Monica believes she should be running the
    organization. After GRUMBL acquires A.I.M., Monica relishes in
    M.O.D.O.K.'s suffering until the new management begins to infringe on
    her ungodly experiments. With a common enemy in Austin, M.O.D.O.K.
    and Monica are finally able to put aside their differences and work
    together... when they aren't constantly betraying each other.

    Bennet will voice Austin Dan Der Sleet. After M.O.D.O.K.'s evil
    organization A.I.M. is run into the ground, he's forced to sell it to
    silicon valley tech-giant GRUMBL. GRUMBL sends slick,
    twenty-something Austin as a "post-merger-integration-consultant" and
    M.O.D.O.K.'s new boss. Though M.O.D.O.K. wishes he could just zap
    Austin to the Negative Zone, M.O.D.O.K. must find new solutions to
    confront Austin's corporate jargon-speak and frequent mandatory HR
    meetings, if he's ever going to reclaim A.I.M. from Austin's grip.

    Daly is Super Adaptoid, a snarky android with ambitions to live, feel
    and create, but is instead forced to spend his days massaging the
    hoverchair sores on his creator M.O.D.O.K.'s scalp. Although the
    Adaptoid dreams of overwriting his programming and turning on
    M.O.D.O.K., there is also a begrudging friendship between these two.

    Richardson is Gary, a henchman or "beekeeper" at A.I.M. who is
    fiercely loyal to his boss M.O.D.O.K., even if M.O.D.O.K. struggles
    to remember his name. As M.O.D.O.K. continues to get demoted within
    his own organization, Gary is there by his side, always offering his
    help and unshakeable optimism whether M.O.D.O.K. wants it or not.

    M.O.D.O.K. is set around the character of the same name. He was
    created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in 1967. As well as providing
    the voice, the series will be co-created and executive produced by
    Oswalt. Jordan Blum (Community) and Jeph Loeb (Legion) will also be
    executive producing, with the latter serving as co-creator with

    The series is set to premiere on May 21!
