AceShowbiz - Hulu releases first official teaser for "Marvel's Runaways". It gives a sneak peek at teenage angst, family drama, cultish ritual and superpowers. Families are torn apart as the parents turn out to be the bad guys and the kids become runaways and soon realize that they've inherited certain powers from their parents.
The series follows Nico Minoru, Karolina Dean, Molly Hayes, Chase Stein, Alex Wilder, and Gertrude Yorkes - 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.
Gregg Sulkin, Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer and Allegra Acosta play the teen heroes. Meanwhile, the parents are portrayed by the likes of Ryan Sands, Angel Parker, Brittany Ishibashi, James Yaegashi, Kevin Weisman, Brigid Brannagh, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, James Marsters and Ever Carradine.
The "Runaways" was originally developed as a feature film but it was eventually shelved due to "The Avengers" success. Written by Tamara Becher ("Marvel's Iron Fist"), the 10-episode show is scheduled to premiere November 21 on Hulu. Marvel's head of television Jeph Loeb serves as one of the executive producers.
Loeb said the show would take place in Marvel Cinematic Universe but the characters would not be affected by the events in the Marvel films. "Would you be following Iron Man [on social media] or would you be following someone your own age? The fact that they've found each other and they're going through this mystery together at the moment is what we’re concerned about, not what Captain America is doing," he said.
