Gillies will narrate the series, which follows Thor and his brother Loki as they venture on a quest to recover a dangerous alien artifact. The brothers won't be on this adventure alone, though.

"I'm delighted to take part in this project, particularly as this is a new territory in storytelling for the comic book fans. This material looks both challenging and absurdly fun, and I look forward to participating in this new aspect of the Marvel Universe," Daniel Gillies said in a statement.

Additional series following other popular Marvel characters like Black Panther, Black Widow, and Jessica Jones will launch on the service in 2020.

Thor: Metal Gods will premiere on Serial Box on Thursday, Dec. 12.
