The premiere of Runaways is mere days away, so now is probably a good time for fans to hear that the series' co-creator, Brian K. Vaughan, is a huge fan of the Hulu adaptation. According to a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the shift from page to screen has been a profound one for Vaughan, who penned the series’ first issue in 2003.
"When I helped create the book, I was much closer in age to these actors playing the Runaways," Vaughan said. "Now, I'm much closer in age to their parents. It's surreal to meet my fictional children when I've brought my actual children to the set, to meet my fictional kids. It couldn't have been cooler. They're all so nice. It feels like they're ripped right out of the pages of the book. It's fantastic."
Runaways follows a group of teenagers who discover their parents are collectively the sinister organization named The Pride, a supervillain group that meets in secret every year to conduct a sacrifice. When the teens witness the sacrifice being performed, they know they have to step up and take down their parents.
Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature, Runaways stars 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. The 10-episode first season of Runaways debuts Tuesday, Nov. 21 on Hulu.
