Our First Look at Hulu and Marvel’s RUNAWAYS is Very Promising

Ever since it was announced that Hulu and Marvel Television would be adapting Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s beloved cult comic Runaways, we’ve been waiting with baited breath to see just how they’ll bring the wonderful world of Alex, Gert, Nico, Molly, Karolina, and Chase to life. If you haven’t read the comic—What are you doing? Read it now!—it tells the story of a group kids who discover their seemingly normal parents are actually super villains.

Earlier this year we  found out who would be playing our pivotal protagonists with Rhenzy Feliz as Alex, Lyrica Okano as Nico, Virginia Gardner as Karolina, Ariela Barer as Gert, Gregg Sulkin as Chase, and Allegra Acosta as Molly. Mostly unknowns, the young cast seemed fantastically suited to their characters and we couldn’t wait to see more. Today we’re finally getting our first look at the kids and their parents in full Runaways mode!

Rhenzy Feliz’s Alex looks ripped from the pages of BKV and Alphona’s beloved book with his iconic 1 shirt and signature specs. The Runaways unofficial leader is the heart of the group and a child prodigy.

Ariela Barer’s Gert is serving some seriously great looks as the groups resident sarcastic badass / telekinetic dinosaur whisperer.

Lyrica Okano, here playing fan favorite Nico Minoru, is clearly just as into witchy biz as her comic book counterpart, and for those eagle-eared MCU fans her surname might be familiar…

Molly Hernandez is the baby of the group, who also happens to be a super powered mutant! In this version it’ll be unlikely we hear the M word, but we’re sure she’ll be showcasing her super strength.

Check out more photos including Karolina, Chase, and the parents in our gallery below!

With show runners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage—the pair behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl—and Jessica Jones‘ Jim Chory, Runaways has some serious heavy hitters behind the scenes as well as on screen. It premieres November 21st, exclusively on Hulu!
