At New York City Comic Con yesterday, Hulu unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming Marvel Universe show, Runaways, as well as a release date: November 21st, 2017.
The show is based off of the 2003 Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona comic book series The Runaways, and this trailer introduces us to six teenagers who discover that their parent are members of The Pride, group of supervillains. After witnessing some sort of ritual, they’re shocked at what they see, and begin to work out what their next steps are, while they contend with superpowers of their own.
Hulu announced that it would adapt the show in August 2016, and ordered the show to a series in May. It joins other Marvel television properties such as Cloak & Dagger (on Freeform), ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, and the entire array of Defenders shows on Netflix. Like Cloak & Dagger, this show definitely looks like it’s angling in on the young adult story, which isn’t a surprise, given that it’s been created by OC creator Josh Schwartz and Gossip Girl co-creator Stephanie Savage.
