It also declared 2 new Marvel series Helstrom and Ghost Rider. Yet, the platform has not made almost as much original program as Netflix. As the media claimed previously this year, Netflix has motive to fear Disney+. Now, it may have more factors to be concerned about Hulu. Although, the media do not know still when much Hulu aims to spend or how.

On a related note, the interest of Marvel in digital audio is not restricted to podcasts. Dreamscape Media and the media behemoth have agreed upon a deal to convert a number of well-known comic books into audiobooks, comprising Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Daredevil: The Man Without Fear. Almost 2 Dozen of them are only made by Dreamscape, while more 20 have not been extensively available earlier.

The concluded audiobooks will be accessible via various primary online audiobook suppliers, comprising Audible, Apple Books, and Google. Midwest Tapes, Dreamscape’s parent, will also provide the digital audiobooks to libraries via its Hoopla platform. This is not coming unexpectedly when Marvel provided its Wolverine podcast’s second season and has made stories that comprised both paper and audio copies. With that claimed, it is still a noteworthy expansion.
