With the November 21 premiere date less than two weeks away, Hulu has released six new character posters for Marvel's Runaways, which offer a unique glimpse at each character's special abilities. Hulu has also released a new banner that features all of these characters together, although it remains to be seen if Hulu will release any new footage between now and the premiere. Hulu did release a new Runaways trailer at the end of October, but it remains to be seen if that will be the final footage released before the show's debut.
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel's Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe, their parents, known collectively as The Pride. The Hulu original series is based on the Marvel comics created by the award-winning team of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. The book series has won an Eisner, a Harvey and was featured as one of the Young Adult Library Services Association's best books for young adults.
The ensemble cast includes Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, Angel Parker as Catherine Wilder, Annie Wersching as Leslie Dean, Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, Brigid Brannagh as Stacey Yorkes, Brittany Ishibashi as Tina Minoru, Ever Carradine as Janet Stein, Greg Sulkin as Chase Stein, James Marsters as Victor Stein, James Yaegashi as Robert Minoru, Julian McMahon as Jonah, Kevin Weisman as Dale Yorkes, Kip Pardue as Frank Dean, Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, Ryan Sands as Geoffrey Wilder and Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean. For many years, the project was being lined up for a movie adaptation, but that all changed when Hulu issued a series order back in August 2016, with this show coming together quite quickly.
During New York Comic Con, Hulu screened the Runaways pilot episode, although the rest of us have to wait until November 21. Still, instead of just the first episode, fans will get to watch the first three episodes of the 10-episode season on November 21. No further programming details have been given, but it seems that the new episodes will continue to drop on subsequent Tuesday's throughout the remainder of the season.
Josh Schwartz, who co-created the series with his longtime collaborator Stephanie Savage, revealed in August that the superhero series won't have "traditional villains," and while The Pride certainly serve as the villains of this show, they aren't exactly your typical villains. Marvel's Runaways is executive produced by series showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C. and Gossip Girl) along with Marvel's Head of Television, Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's The Defenders) and Jim Chory (Marvel's The Defenders, Marvel's Jessica Jones) Fake Empire's Lis Rowinski will produce as well. Marvel's Runaways is a co-production with ABC Signature Studios. Take a look at these new character posters and banner, from the Runaways Twitter.
