Hulu’s Runaways Trailer Highlights Teens Saving Their World

Runaways based on the eponymous Marvel comics series follows six teens on the run from their evil super villain parents. While attempting to escape, they develop superpowers of their own and go on to save the world.

This official trailer (showing more background than the NYCC trailer) does a great job of highlighting each character including the parents. Who are really terrible! One even states that “these kids are living on borrowed time.” Damn. In two minutes, the trailer packs a lot of information in and I did re-watch it multiple times.  Hopefully the other nine episodes are just as packed.

I’m super interested in this even though I have never read the comics. Especially because the characters are so diverse and engaging, even from a few scenes.

The comic book series was first released in 2003, and the show, set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has four volumes to use as a reference. Setting the show in the MCU probably makes writing this complicated plot easier because the teens already have a frame of reference for powers. Runaways will not be the only new Marvel series set to debut, as Freeform aims to premiere their own series Cloak & Dagger in early 2018.

Runaways premieres on Hulu, November 21st starring Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Rhenzy Feliz, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, and Allegra Acosta as the soon to be infamous group.
