Hulu’s latest fantasy horror series, ‘Helstrom’, premieres worldwide this week, but fans are excited to see what connection the show has with the MCU.
With its dark and twisted fantasy horror themes, along with a fantastic cast of actors, Helstrom is arguably one of the autumn’s most anticipated new series.
However, there has been much discussion about the upcoming series regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the current heavyweight in the film and television industry.
Helstrom Premiere this week on the Hulu streaming service, but what’s the connection between the fantasy horror series and the MCU?
Is Helstrom part of the MCU?
- Yes, Hulus Helstrom is a standalone title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s separate from the main Avengers Thanos timeline.
There are several characters in Helstrom that are part of the original Marvel comic universe – Daimon Helstrom, for example – first appeared in the first issue of Wrong-way drivers in 1973.
However, it was announced in 2019 that the Helstrom TV series wouldn’t flow directly into other Marvel series or films, which makes it a standalone title in the MCU.
Elizabeth Marvel (yes, that’s her real name), who plays Victoria Helstrom, spoke to ComicBook about how fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe should support the Hulu series anyway.
“You are being encouraged to open new doors and completely different wings to this huge Marvel building that you have never been in before… And now we say, ‘Come with us here in this whole new section. ‘And I think it will be a great pleasure for people to do that. “- Elizabeth Marvel via ComicBook.
The actress would then compare Helstrom to other MCU spin-off series Daredeviland says the series may not be “more frightening than much of the area explored in something like Daredevil“But that” It’s a different kind of story, a different kind of fear, a different kind of playing out of similar elements. ”
While there’s no official confirmation that the series directly mentions either The Avengers or Thanos, Marvel likes to put Easter eggs in the background of their projects – so watch out for subtle clues in Season 1.
Why doesn’t Helstrom have a Marvel logo?
While Helstrom is in fact part of the broader Marvel Cinematic Universe. From the trailer, fans will have noticed that a clear logo, probably the clearest logo in the entire film industry, is missing in the opening credits … ‘MARVEL’.
The Marvel logo is an icon of branding and is used in every single MCU-associated project, but is clearly absent Helstrom. ScreenRant believes this is because “Marvel doesn’t want to Helstrom Being associated with them is not a brand. ”
This may be due to the recent changes made at Marvel Studios since then Helstrom was first ordered by Hulu in early 2019. Kevin Feige was named chief creative officer of Marvel Entertainment later that year. Many other live action projects have become Disney Plus exclusive projects, like this Wandavision and The falcon and the winter soldier.
However, it is worth remembering that Hulu is owned by Disney. So maybe Helstrom becomes a “distant relative” rather than a direct family member The avengers.
Helstrom arrives in Hulu on Friday October 16th, 2020.
