A Runaways TV Show is Apparently Totally Happening!
To the surprise of a lot of people, Marvel randomly and apropos of nothing announced the casting of the upcoming Runaways TV show! It’s going to be on Hulu, apparently! And Marvel being awesome, seems like they’re casting the Runaways as comics accurately as they can! All the characters are here!
From left to right, we’ve got 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!
I don’t recognize any of these actors, but that shouldn’t be too scary. If Marvel trusts them then I totally trust them!
You can read a better description of all the characters, and some of the actors’ credits, at the Marvel announcement article.
Also, Runaways creator Brian K. Vaughn will be an executive consultant on the show, so that’s pretty neat. He’s a great writer and has a lot of experience with TV shows.
So yeah, this is pretty neat. I look forward to the show whenever it premieres. And personally, I hope that Marvel somehow keeps the Minoru family continuity from the Doctor Strange movie. That would just be insanely cool.
Oh, also, Marvel casted Cloak and Dagger a few days ago too. So clearly somebody’s burning the midnight oil in the TV division.
