Marvel fans, are you ready to meet the “Runaways”?
On Wednesday (3rd May), Hulu dropped the Marvel television show’s first promo poster on Twitter. And dare we say, they look extremely similar to their comic book counterparts!
Created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, “Runaways” is run by “Gossip Girl” creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. The series follows a group of 6 teenagers in the Marvel universe – Nico Minoru (played by Lyrica Okano), Karolina Dean (played by Virginia Gardner), Molly Hayes (played by Allegra Acosta), Chase Stein (played by Gregg Sulkin), Alex Wilder (played by Rhenzy Feliz), and Gertrude Yorkes (played by Ariela Barer) – who discover that their parents are secretly members of a supervillain cabal called The Pride. After deciding they’re no longer safe in their own homes, the kids go on the run. In the midst of hiding from their elders, the teens learn about themselves and become a family of their own.
In a leaked teaser video, which was secretly recorded by someone in the audience during Hulu’s Upfronts presentation, the teenage heroes discovers that their parents are The Pride, a supervillain team. It also shows glimpses of their super powers.
No release date for “Runaways” has been confirmed yet, but we’ll be updating this post with more information as soon as we get ’em details.
