Hulu's Runaways have ditched Los Angeles for New York City. At this year's New York Comic Con, stars Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin and Allegra Acosta joined Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb and executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage at Madison Square Garden to screen the Season 3 premiere and tease the upcoming season.
"When I first read the comics, I found a lot of similarities between Nico and me as a teenager a few years back, and I wanted to keep that true to the comics and the show. I think she has a very hard time expressing her feelings, so she copes with that by spending hours getting her makeup just right," Okano shared.
"I wanted to make sure Karolina and Nico got to explore their relationship on the show," Gardner added.
"I want to see Victor Mancha," Acosta pitched in.
Comic series co-creator Brian K. Vaughan approached the microphone during a fan Q&A to thank the cast and crew on stage. "You guys have done an incredible job, and this is the very best cast in television right now," he said.
"Well, Cloak and Dagger. It's something we've wanted to do since the beginning of the show. We've always wanted them in our world, and this year Jeph finally said yes," Savage shared.
"Olivia [Holt] and Aubrey [Joseph] are wonderful people, so that was a joy," Sulkin added. "We know the Runaways has comic book fans... and it was incredible to be on set that this was a particular episode for you guys... This was very special, and we hope you enjoy it... We had extra energy on the episode because we felt like you were with us."
"They're integral to what happens this season," Loeb teased.
"The fact that we get to merge with another group of superheroes, it's awesome. I hope we get to do more," Acosta shared.
Loeb teased that perhaps the Runaways cast could appear on Cloak & Dagger. The Freeform series has not yet been renewed for a third season.
Arriving on Hulu December 13, Marvel’s Runaways Season 3 stars Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, Allegra Acosta, Angel Parker, Ryan Sans, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, Ever Carradine, James Marsters, Brigid Brannagh, Kevin Weisman, Brittany Ishibashi and James Yaegashi.
