Ahead of its Nov. 21 premiere, Hulu has released a new full-length trailer for Marvel’s Runaways that effectively lays out the premise, introducing viewers to the six young friends who reunite after growing apart, only to discover their wealthy parents are, well, evil.
Based on the Marvel Comics series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, the Runaways shown in the first 30 seconds or so of footage may resemble standard CW teen-drama fare, but only until we’re shown the Pride’s human sacrifice, Jace’s X-ray goggles, Molly’s super-strength and Karolina’s glowing form. Oh, and Old Lace, the genetically engineered Deinonychus.
There’s plenty new to see here, with completed special effects, magic and high drama.
Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature, Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, a loud-and-proud nerd; Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, a budding wiccan with a carefully crafted goth facade; Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, whose model-perfect exterior disguises an eagerness to explore her identity and desires; Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, a brash, purple-haired social justice warrior; Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein, a lacrosse-playing heartthrob with flashes of engineering brilliance; and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, the youngest member, known for her positive outlook and deep yearning to belong.
They’re joined by Ryan Sands, Angel Parker, James Yaegashi, Kevin Weisman, Brigid Brannagh, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, James Marsters and Ever Carradine.
Executive produced by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, the 10-episode first season of Runaways debuts Tuesday, Nov. 21, on Hulu.
