One of the many Marvel TV series that died before it could hit screens was Marvel’s New Warriors TV series. Not only was the show ordered straight to series by Freeform, but it also had a showrunner in Kevin Biegel, with an entire cast of young actors pulled on board to star in the show. A pilot episode was even shot for the series.
Unfortunately, the series is now defunct and Biegel has taken to Twitter to briefly talk about what could have been had New Warriors been given the opportunity to actually air. According to Biegel, had the series continued, we could have gotten to see actor Keith David as the live-action version of M.O.D.O.K (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing).
For those not in the know, Keith David is known for his deep bass-like voice and was the voice behind evil ape Solovar on The Flash, King T’Chaka in the Avengers Assemble animated series, Mongul in the Young Justice series, and Spawn in the classic HBO animated series, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn.
Sadly it seems like we will never get to see a version of M.O.D.O.K voiced by David. Though at the very least, an animated M.O.D.O.K series is still in the works over at Hulu, with Patton Oswalt voicing the titular character.
M.O.D.O.K was originally George Tarleton, a technician who worked for the organisation Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM). Tarleton was genetically enhanced by scientists there, and ended up killing the scientists using his newfound psionic powers and superhuman intelligence. From there, took control of AIM, thereafter becoming known as M.O.D.O.K.
