'Marvel's Runaways' First Official Teaser: When Parents Turn Into Villains

Life is turned upside down for a group of teenagers after they caught their parents doing their evil deeds.

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.

%cGregg Sulkin%, %cRhenzy Feliz%, %cLyrica Okano%, %cVirginia Gardner%, %cAriela Barer% and %cAllegra Acosta% play the teen heroes. Meanwhile, the parents are portrayed by the likes of %cRyan Sands%, %cAngel Parker%, %cBrittany Ishibashi%, %cJames Yaegashi%, %cKevin Weisman%, %cBrigid Brannagh%, %cAnnie Wersching%, %cKip Pardue%, %cJames Marsters% and %cEver 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.

The producer also ruled out any chance for a crossover between other teen Marvel TV shows like "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" and "Marvel's New Warriors" on Freeform.
