If Pip the Troll’s voice sounds familiar to fans, that’s because it belongs to comedian and actor Patton Oswalt, who seems to be on a tear through the various corners of the Marvel universe. Oswalt recently lent his vocal talents to the character MODOK in a Hulu series centered around the fat-headed villain. According to an interview with ComicBook.com, Starlin was not only a fan of Oswalt on the Hulu series, but thought that Marvel Studios also nailed it by casting him as Pip the Troll.
“Now, Patton’s always been a character actor who I think has got terrific range, and I think his voice is just perfect for it,” Starlin said in the interview.
As the mid-credits scene implies, we probably haven’t seen the last of Pip the Troll or Oswalt as his voice. That means Oswalt may be pegged for double-Marvel duty, depending on what happens with “MODOK.” Although a release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, a Season 2 of “MODOK” could come in the future if Marvel Studios thinks there’s a demand for it from fans.
