If you're a fan of Marvel TV shows, there's a whole lot to love this month — and we're not just talking about on Netflix. We have superheroes, some great movies, and two of Marvel's most fascinating TV projects to date.

Hulu's buzzy Runaways adaptation drops this month, plus the streaming service's Seth Rogen-produced sci-fi comedy Future Man (fair warning, it definitely ticks most of the R-rated boxes). Netflix will drop its long-awaited Punisher series, plus its animated Stretch Armstrong animated project. Oh, and of course, more than a few movies you'll know and love.

The originals line-up is a bit thinner on Amazon Prime this month, but there are still some great sci-fi flick deep cuts hitting the service over the next few weeks.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be streaming.


Marvel's The Punisher (Season 1): Marvel’s Punisher series is unlike pretty much anything else the studio has tried on the small screen in the MCU, and for the most part, it works. The show picks up with Frank Castle as he meets Micro, and it's loaded with the bullets and bone-crunching you would likely expect from the character.

Oculus: If you're a big fan of Karen Gillan but want to see the talented actress trade deep space and the TARDIS for something a bit more spine-tingling, Oculus is an excellent little horror flick you may have missed on its first go-round. It follows Gillan as she tries to prove a haunted mirror ruined her life, and it turns into a mind-bending thriller over its tight runtime. It also features a freaky cameo for Katee Sackhoff, in case you're not already sold.

9: This 2009 CGI animated flick arrived to a mixed reception from critics but has spent the past few years turning into a cult hit. It's a weird steampunk story filtered through a family-friendly lens, and for the most part, the mash-up works. The effects are top-notch, and it features an A-list cast with Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, and Martin Landau. Tim Burton produced and writer-director Shane Acker brought a whole lot of love to the project.

Future Man: This is basically Back to the Future meets The Last Starfighter, filtered through an acerbic, R-rated lens by producer Seth Rogen — and it looks like a heck of a lot of fun. The series stars Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) as a gamer who's recruited by time travelers to try to save the future. That mission will have him traveling through time to stop the man who will eventually destroy the future, all because he’s trying to make a cure for herpes that eventually leads to the downfall of humanity itself. Yeah, it only gets crazier from there.

Runaways: One of Marvel's best comics is finally getting a shot at the small screen, and from everything we've seen, Hulu looks to have nailed it. The story is simple: A group of teens realize their parents are actually secret supervillains, so they go on the run to try to stop them. It's teen angst twisted into a superhero story, with a lot of laughs and heart to hold it together. It's also one of the most outside-the-box shows Marvel has attempted yet, so if you're getting burned out on the formula, this looks to be the perfect palate cleanser.

Doug's 1st Movie: If you’re game for a blast from the past, the beloved NickToon series Doug has its feature-length adventure from 1999 landing on streaming for a whole generation of new fans to discover. It's a big adventure that finds Doug looking into reports of a local monster, and is a great introduction (or reminder) into the world of Doug Funnie and all his pals.

Marvel’s Runaways: Series Premiere Hulu Original


Falling Water (Season 1): If you missed this supernatural USA series during its first run, you can kick back and catch the entire first season this month on Amazon. The series follows a group of strangers who realize they're all dreaming parts of the same dream.

The Cell: If you're game for something super-weird from the early 2000s, you can't do much better than this freaky sci-fi thriller. It stars young Jennifer Lopez, Vince Vaughn, and Vincent D'Onofrio in a reality-bending tale of virtual reality and positively mind-boggling visuals. If you've never seen this one, or simply forgot it existed at all, it's high time to take it off the (virtual) shelf.

Moonraker: The Roger Moore-era James Bond dabbled in straight-up sci-fi with this 1979 spy-fi favorite, and the film stands out as easily one of the most fun Bond movies ever made. Space shuttles have never been so cool. The visual effects and stunts were mind-blowing at the time, and even now, it's still a retro-future we'd love to live in.
