The Cast Photo For Marvel’s ‘RUNAWAYS’

May 4, 2017

Following the announcement at Hulu’s Upfront Presentation at Madison Square Garden Theater, that Marvel’s RUNAWAYS has been picked up, now comes the first cast photo, which can be seen down below!

The show marks Hulu’s first order from Marvel Television. The pilot wrapped in March.

This fan-favorite and groundbreaking comic book series will be brought to life by the team behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Both of them will co-showrun, write and executive produce the series along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.

Marvel’s RUNAWAYS tells the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe– their parents. The popular classic explores the younger side of the Marvel Universe in a coming of age, new action series that will premiere on Hulu this winter.

Starring Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, a loud-and-proud nerd who spends much of his free time playing video games; Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, a tough, angst-ridden budding Wiccan; Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, who, underneath her veneer of privilege and perfection, is experiencing a newfound eagerness to explore her identity; Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, a purple-haired, riot girl; Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein, a high school heartthrob many write off as a dumb jock but who exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering; and Allegra Acosta as the eternally peppy Molly Hernandez, the youngest and most innocent of the group.

RUNAWAYS was originally in development as a feature film to be part of the MCU, with Kevin Feige producing and Peter Sollett directing from a script by Drew Pearce. By 2010, casting was underway when Marvel Studios cancelled the film in order to focus its efforts on the first Avengers film.
