Watch the rise of a hero from Down Under in Koala Man, which stars creator Michael Cusack (Smiling Friends) together with Hugh Jackman in his animated collection debut. The collection comes from Cusack’s eccentric mind, with Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites) and Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit (each writers on Pokémon: Detective Pikachu) government producing.
In the primary trailer for Koala Man, we get a style of Cusack’s penchant for placing strange individuals in bonkers, surreal circumstances.
Here we meet Kevin, a middle-aged father who has adopted the persona of Koala Man to guard his city, which on the skin seems to be regular however is definitely an Australian suburban hub of cosmic and human evil. Sort of like James Gunn’s Super however with actual supernatural threats. Hugh Jackman performs Kevin’s boss Big Greg, who finally ends up supporting his worker on his superhero ventures. Fittingly, Jackman will get in not less than one hilarious Wolverine shout out as seen within the trailer above—which is nothing in comparison with how weird we’re anticipating the present to get. If you haven’t seen Cusack’s earlier collection Yolo: Crystal Fantasy, you aren’t prepared—however do watch it as a primer on the creator’s absurd sensibilities. They’re nice!
The collection’ voice solid additionally contains Sarah Snook (Succession), Jemaine Clement (Avatar: The Way of Water), and Demi Lardner, in addition to Alexandra Daddario, Rachel House, Angus Sampson, and the legendary Hugo Weaving—sure, I do know, it’s nice to see him return to style in an enormous bizarre means.
