Tigra & Dazzler was a planned but ultimately scrapped series from Marvel Animation. The series was intended be the first to focus on the characters, though Tigra was a main character on The Avengers: United They Stand while Dazzler was a main character on "Pryde of the X-Men".

The series was announced on February 11th, 2019 at the Television Critics Association press tour. It would have released released along with M.O.D.O.K., Hit Monkey, and Howard the Duck each leading up to the crossover series The Offenders. This was to be similar to Marvel Studios's Netflix series.


The series would have followed Tigra and Dazzler, two woke superheroines and best friends, as they fight for recognition among the powered people of Los Angeles.[1]


The series was to be written by Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler. Rivinoja, Handler, and Jeph Loeb will be executive producers.

However, on December 4th, 2019 it was reported that Rivinoja and her entire writing staff had been fired due to creative differences with Marvel. Production came to a halt as everything they were working on was scrapped. Reportedly, they had finished fifteen of the planned twenty weeks for production, and had completed several scripts and multiple outlines. Marvel then moved to finding a new showrunner who would bring on their own writing staff to overhaul the series. The halt in production was not expected to affect the other Offenders shows.[2]

Upong hearing the news, Tigra creator Tony Isabella offered his services. "Hey, Marvel, I'm neither a showrunner or a screenwriter. But, as the creator of Tigra, if I can be of any service, even as an unofficial consultant, just send me a private message."[3]


In January 24th, 2020 it was announced that Hulu would no longer be moving forward with the series along with Howard the Duck.[4] Howard the Duck was cancelled a month later, also ending production on The Offenders.
