Runaways Show on Hulu

Information on the Runaways show on Hulu:

The Runaways will be the first Marvel show on the TV streaming service Hulu.  Multiple hit Marvel shows have already been released on Hulu's competitor Netflix.  The Runaways is not the most widely known property but is cultishly followed by fans.  The comic series began in 2001 with the Brian K. Vaughan series titled Runaways.  The comic had only a mild following but gained significant steam in the Trade Paper Back market where it made many fans.  Marvel has since released multiple new volumes to the original series.

The show will be produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.   Shwartz was quoted in an interview with Deadline saying, "I’m a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn’t be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian’s characters to life."  Schwartz and Savage had previously worked together on the show Gossip Girl.

The story of the Runaways follows a diverse group of teenagers who are forced to flee their parents after they learn they are super villains.  Opposing their parents they learn that each possesses a type of super power.

Marvel has released this cool banner that features all of the Runaways:

  • Nico Minoru  - Magic user
  • Karolina Dead - Alien 
  • Molly Hayes - Telepathic mutant
  • Gertrude Yorkes - daughter of time traveling thieves
  • Alex Wilder - Son of mob / gangsters
  • Victor Mancha - Cyborg son of Ultron
  • Xavin - Skrull
  • Klara Prast - time displaced mutant can communicate with plants.

MCU Connections:

One of the parents of Niko Minoru was shown in the Doctor Strange Prequel comic.  This effectively links the show Runaways to Doctor Strange.  She does not appear villainous in this iteration as she is confronting Kaecilius (the villain of Doctor Strange) over the spell he wishes to cast.
