Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ Get Into Some ‘Narnia’ Stuff in First Hulu Trailer
The kids are officially not all right. Marvel’s Hulu Runaways have serious parental problems as the next generation of heroes stumble into some evil dealings in the first trailer. And to paraphrase a certain raccoon from another corner of the Marvel universe, “he didn’t say ‘stuff.’”
Straight from New York Comic-Con and over a month out from the three-episode November premiere, Runaways released a first full trailer for the fan-favorite comic adaptation. In it, we get a good look at all the kids and their evil parents (sadly rocking robes over their comic garb), along with a mystery girl at the center of it all. Oh, and did someone say, “Old Lace”?
The original Runaways was created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona in 2003, while the new series’ synopsis reads:
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.
In addition to Buffy breakout James Marsters, along with several 24 and Alias alum as their Pride-ful parents, Hulu’s Runaways features Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez. Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will helm the series overall.
We’ll have a closer look at the series before its November 21 premiere, so stay tuned for the latest on Marvel’s Runaways.
