Earlier this month, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb and Runaways showrunners Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz revealed that Brian K. Vaughan — who co-created the original comic with Adrian Alphona — had a pretty significant role in Hulu’s adaptation of the beloved series. Although the upcoming series is supposedly quite faithful to the source material, Vaughan has now confirmed that fans of the comic have some surprises waiting for them.
“It was important to me that we do something where people can’t go online and read how this ends or what’s going to happen next,” Vaughan said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “If you’re a fan of the comic, you’re going to be surprised. If you’ve never read the comic, you’re going to be surprised.”
The series sees six teenagers band together when they discover their parents are a group of supervillains collectively known as The Pride. The show is based on Vaughan and Alphona’s 2003 comic series.
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 budding activist; 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. The 10-episode first season of Runaways debuts Nov. 21 on Hulu.
