Finally, after waiting a bit to hear a little more about the upcoming TV project between Marvel and Hulu, we have our first clear look at the upcoming adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s beloved comic series, Runaways. Take a look for yourself below!
I am gonna be honest, I’m feeling excited. It looks really good and I am a huge fan of the original run of comics done by Vaughan and Alphona. It was one of the most unique and original ideas when it first published back in 2003 for Marvel and got you invested quickly towards our teenaged protagonists.
The trailer neatly lays out the premise of teens find out their parents are villains in a cult, they team up to stop them, get powers of their own. Right to the point and I like it. Also we don’t fully see him, but we do get a brief glimpse and full confirmation that Old Lace, the genetically engineered dinosaur, will in fact be on the show and that is crucial to the overall plot of Runaways.
If executed correctly, Runaways could be a standout among the landscape of superhero and comic book adapted television shows we have today.
Runaways is set to premiere on Hulu on Tuesday, November 21.
