Is Hit Monkey a part of the MCU?

Is a vengeful Japanese snow monkey part of the MCU?

November 16, 2021

Marvel’s Hit Monkey is releasing soon and if you’ve been wondering if it’s part of the MCU, wonder no more.

Hit Monkey certainly sounds like a strange yet intriguing show and if you’re excited to dive in, thankfully, you’ll get to view it soon. The Marvel series will see Hit-Monkey, a Japanese macaque, known as a “snow monkey,” and who looks like something out of Pulp Fiction, take on Tokyo’s crime underworld.

Before landing itself as an animated series, Hit Monkey was a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics in 2010. If you happen to be a fan of the comics, it looks like the first season of the show will play out like the first issue of the comic.

Hit Monkey part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

The short answer to that is no, Hit Monkey doesn’t take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This follows in the same footsteps as other shows like The New Mutants, Inhumans, Legion, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and many more to name a few.

Who Stars in Hit Monkey?

You may recognise quite a few voices as you get stuck into the animated show. Fred Tatasciore comes in as Hit-Monkey, Jason Sudeikis as Bryce, George Takei as Shinji Yokohama, Olivia Munn as Akiko, Ally Maki as Haruka and Nobi Nakanishi as Ito.

Where can you watch Hit Monkey?

Viewers can jump into Hit Monkey on 17 November 2021 and watch the 10 episode series either on Hulu at 12:01 am ET or on Disney+ at 8 am GMT.
