Hulu offers up its own answer to The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises this summer with The Awesomes, a hilarious-looking web series from SNL‘s Seth Meyers and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon‘s Michael Shoemaker.

Other SNL cast members like Kenan Thompson, Bill Hader and Taran Killam are set to voice characters too, so here’s hoping that Vincent Price appears as a villain.
Let’s go behind the scenes, shall we?:
