Hulu has released the first official teaser trailer for Marvel's Runaways and this show actually looks like it's gonna be a solid series worth checking out. The series has a very different vibe than anything else we are seeing in the Marvel shows and I honestly dig what I'm seeing. The show obviously won't be for everyone, but I'm definitely looking forward to checking it out. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think.
Runaways is based on the comic created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona and this is the brief plot summary of the series:
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.
The parents are part of a criminal organization known as The Pride, which is "a group which hosts an annual "charity" gathering that serves as a meeting place for nefarious time-travelers, wizards, mad scientists, aliens, and mutants."
The series stars Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf, Casual) as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano (The Affair, Unforgettable) as Nico Minoru–tough, Virginia Gardner (Goat, Little Bitches) as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer (New Girl, One Day at a Time) as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin (Faking It, Don’t Hang Up, Anti Social) as Chase Stein, Allegra Acosta (100 Things to do Before High School, Just Add Magic) as Molly Hernandez, and Julian McMahon Jonah, a mysterious figure who plays an important role in the children's rebellion against their parents.
The series is being developed by The O.C. and Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. They will executive produce alongside Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
Marvel’s Runaways premieres on Hulu on November 21st.
