See the gorgeous new Marvel's Runaways posters
Marvel has released some gorgeous new posters teasing the superpowered teens at the center of their upcoming Hulu series Runaways. The show, which comes from Gossip Girl and The O.C. alums Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, adapts the popular comic series in which the teens must face off against their parents after realizing they are part of an evil crime organization called The Pride.
Faking It's Gregg Sulkin leads the show's talented young cast as Chase Stein, a lacrosse player with a secret talent for engineering. Chase's life is made more complicated by his genius father Victor, played by Buffy the Vampire Slayer's James Marsters, and his unsatisfied "perfect PTA mom" Janet, played by The Handmaid's Tale's Ever Carradine.
Ariela Barer (One Day At A Time) plays Chase's comic book love interest Gert Yorkes, a rebel and social justice warrior, who, in the comics, has a telepathic bond with a genetically engineered dinosaur named Old Lace. Alias' Kevin Weisman plays her father Dale, a science-minded engineer, while Army Wives' Brigit Brannagh plays her mother, an absent-minded bioengineer.
Lyrica Okano (The Affair) plays Nico Minoru, a tough but angsty Wiccan who is the comics' leader of the group. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows star Brittany Ishibashi plays her "tiger mom" Tina, while Broadway actor James Yaegashi plays her gentle and brilliant father Robert.
Casual's Rhenzy Feliz plays Alex Wilder, a video game nerd who, in the comics, is a child prodigy who excels at strategy. His parents are played by The Wire's Ryan Sands and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story's Angel Parker, with Sands' Geoffrey is a strategic "hulking presence" and Parker's Catherine a successful and calculating lawyer.
Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac) plays Karolina Dean, a privileged teen who, in the comics, is shaken to find out that she is actually an alien. Remember the Titans actor Kip Pardue plays her father Frank, an insecure former teen star struggling with launching an adult acting career. Her mother Leslie, a charismatic and charming leader, is played by Castle's Annie Wersching.
Allegra Acosta (100 Things To Do Before High School) rounds out the group of young heroes as Molly Hernandez, the team's peppy youngest member. In the comics, the character is called Molly Hayes, and she has super-strength and invulnerability. The show's cast also includes Nip/Tuck's Julian McMahon as a "pivotal player" in the teens' parental rebellion.
Runaways doesn't hit Hulu until Nov. 21, but the show has already been screened for some lucky critics, who gave it mostly positive reviews– it currently sits at a 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The show will have 10 episodes that will hit the streamer over the course of the winter. You can view the new posters below.
