Runaways Already Disappoints Me

I don’t ask for a lot. But no sooner do I make a list of the things I want to see in the upcoming Runaways TV show than Marvel Studios violates one of my requests! I was hoping that Marvel would recast actor Linda Louise Duan as Tina Minoru after she had a brief, mostly cut cameo in the Doctor Strange movie. I thought it would be a neat bit of continuity.

Instead, Marvel has cast actor Brittany Ishibashi as Tina Minoru in their upcoming show.


I’m sure she’s fine

You can check out the entire casting list for the villainous Pride at TVline.

I’m sure Ishibashi will do a fine job, but man, I was really hoping for that awesome movie to TV casting continuity!

Maybe Duan should fire her agent.

  1. I tweeted at Linda to let her know how disappointed I was that she was cut from Doctor Strange and she liked and retweeted it!

    The very next day I had to tweet her again because I found out she wasn’t cast in the TV show….sometimes you just can’t win.
