Marvel's Runaways (2017 Hulu Series)

Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, and Allegra Acosta star as the Runaways, 6 teenagers from different backgrounds who unite against their parents, the Pride, portrayed by Ryan Sands, Angel Parker, Brittany Ishibashi, James Yaegashi, Kevin Weisman, Brigid Brannagh, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, James Marsters, and Ever Carradine. A film from Marvel Studios based on the Runaways began development in May 2008, before being shelved in 2013 due to the success of The Avengers. In August 2016, Marvel Television announced that Runaways had received a pilot order from Hulu, after being developed and written by Schwartz and Savage. Casting for the Runaways and the Pride were revealed in February 2017. Filming on the pilot began in Los Angeles in February 2017. The series was officially ordered by Hulu in May 2017. The series, consisting of 10 episodes, will premiere on November 21, 2017.

Marvel's RunawaysLoeb confirmed in July 2017 that the series would be set in the MCU, but that the show's characters would not be concerned with the actions of the Avengers, for example, saying, "Would you be following Iron Man [on social media] or would you be following someone your own age? The fact that they’ve found each other and they’re going through this mystery together at the moment is what we’re concerned about, not what Captain America is doing." The showrunners considered the series' connection to the MCU to be "liberating", as is allowed them to set the series in a universe where superheroics and fantasy are already established and do not need to be explained to the audience. Loeb added that there were no plans to crossover across networks with the similarly themed Marvel's Cloak & Dagger and Marvel's New Warriors on Freeform. He added that Marvel wanted the series to find its footing before further connecting with other elements of the universe, saying "You'll see things that comment on each other; we try to touch base wherever we can... things that are happening in L.A. are not exactly going to be affecting what's happening in New Orleans [where Cloak & Dagger is set]... It's being aware of it and trying to find a way for it to be able to discuss in a way that makes sense."

 

The Runaways:

  • Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder: A nerd who longs to reunite with his childhood friends.
  • Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru: A Wiccan who isolates herself with her gothic appearance. Unlike the comics, Nico does not summon the Staff of One through self-harm. Okano said this was tweaked, "for good reason" as there would be "a lot of young teenagers watching the show and we don't want to promote anything like self-harm because that's serious." She added that an element of drawing blood would still be involved.
  • Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean: A blonde model who is burdened by her privileged upbringing and wants to pursue her own desires.
  • Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes: A riot grrrl and social justice warrior.
  • Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein: A high school lacrosse player who is often dismissed as a dumb jock but displays bits of brilliance in engineering. Sulkin and the writers wanted the character to be "more layered" than the comics, and Sulkin felt that Chase was the most changed of the Runaways from the source material.
  • Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez: The youngest member of the Runaways who is characterized by her positive attitude.
  • Old Lace, a genetically engineered Deinonychus (dinosaur!) telepathically linked with Gert Yorkes, appears in the series. The character is portrayed by a puppet that was operated by six people, including one person pumping air through the puppet to show the dinosaur breathing. Barer called the puppet "incredible ... You see her emotions. We don't not make use of that."
  • Julian McMahon as Jonah: Someone who helps the Runaways rebel against their parents.

 

The Pride

  • Ryan Sands as Geoffrey Wilder: Alex's father and a self-made business man who had a grueling path to his success.
  • Angel Parker as Catherine Wilder: Alex's mother and a successful lawyer.
  • Brittany Ishibashi as Tina Minoru: Nico's mother who is a brilliant innovator, ruthless CEO, and perfectionist "tiger mom".
    (The character previously appeared in the film Doctor Strange, in a minor role as a Master of the Mystic Arts, portrayed by Linda Louise Duan. The producers felt free to recast the role and create a different version of Tina Minoru since Duan was not named as the character in the film.)
  • James Yaegashi as Robert Minoru: Nico's father.
  • Kevin Weisman as Dale Yorkes: Gert's father and a bioengineer.
  • Brigid Brannagh as Stacey Yorkes: Gert's mother and a bioengineer.
  • Annie Wersching as Leslie Dean: Karolina's mother and one of the leaders of the cult-like religious group the Church of Gibborim.
  • Kip Pardue as Frank Dean: Karolina's father, a former teen star who is struggling in his professional acting career, who is one of the leaders of the Church of Gibborim.
  • James Marsters as Victor Stein: Chase's father and an engineering genius.
  • Ever Carradine as Janet Stein: Chase's mother who has a brilliant mind and is "a perfect PTA mom".

Episode #1: "Reunion" - November 21, 2017

A girl named Destiny is "rescued" by the Church of Gibborim from two muggers, who were actually trying to save her. Six months later, Alex Wilder is depressed over not having spoken to his friends, Nico, Chase, Gert, Karolina and Molly ever since the death of Nico's sister, Amy. He uses his parents upcoming get together with the other parents for a PRIDE meeting to reach out to his friends who have since drifted apart and pursued other interests. They all turn down his offer, but later change their minds. At another party, Karolina removes her bracelet from the Church, sees her hands glowing light and loses consciousness, after given a drug by a stranger, which she actually doesn't take, and Chase rescues her from getting raped. Elsewhere, Gert is stood up by Chase for a studying session and picks up Molly, who discovers that she has super strength and that the Yorkes have a creature in the basement. Nico comes later when she fails to contact her sister from the afterlife. The gathering is awkward, but they are soon intrigued by a secret passage in the house. They come across their parents who sacrifice Destiny in a ritual. Molly's camera flash alerts the parents, but the kids escape before they are caught.

#2 "Rewind" - November 21, 2017

This episode mostly shows the parents' perspective of the events on the previous episode. Geoffrey, who was once a mob boss, threatens an old associate to leave his PRIDE school project alone; Victor tests a "box" that he builds for the ritual; Leslie convinces Destiny not to leave the Church of Gibborim until she reaches the stage of "Ultra" despite the latter's revelation that she has a daughter, while Frank, who is not a member of the PRIDE, loses his agent due to his role as the co-founder of the Church; Tina plans to use the Staff of One, also important for the ritual, to seal Amy's room; and the Yorkes are less excited by the meeting. Although Geoffrey hesitates about killing a teenager, the PRIDE perform the ritual nonetheless. The kids, accidentally alerting their parents, formulate a plan in order not to look suspicious. When the guests are about to go home, Chase cryptically informs Alex that the Steins' self-driving car, invented by Victor, has an "extra-large trunk space." Geoffrey finds Molly's hairpin in his study. Meanwhile, Frank attempts to enter Leslie's secret room, where she possesses an elder man whose face fully covered in a mask, but gets caught by her employee.

#3 "Destiny" - November 21, 2017

The kids decide to investigate what else their parents may be hiding. Karolina finds out that Destiny is in London for a church trip, and later learns that she is the only one who experiences the glowing light while not wearing the bracelet. Nico accidentally summons the Staff of One, but when she cannot stop what it does, she asks Alex for help. In the Yorkes' house, Chase and Gert find a dinosaur—an experiment by her parents—which is telepathically linked to her; however, it inadvertently escapes. Meanwhile, Victor is haunted by the vision of Destiny, who begs him to set her free. The Minorus have a deteriorating marriage life due to Amy's death; it is later revealed that Robert and Janet have an affair. Catherine, learning of Molly's hairpin, decides to question her; fearing Molly knows PRIDE's real motives, Catherine prepares a mind-wiping serum—invented by the Yorkes—for her, but after listening to her story, Catherine sympathizes, and promises to tell her about her deceased parents. The Yorkes plan to move to a remote ranch in Yucatan now that the PRIDE is over; however, Leslie and Tina learn that Destiny's body washes ashore, indicating that the ritual fails and that they need "another sacrifice." Flashbacks to ten years ago show the families holding a funeral for Molly's parents, who died on a mysterious fire, and how the Yorkes adopted Molly.

Karolina reveals to Chase how her body glows without her bracelet. She and Gert also look for proof of their parents' innocence, but with Alex's help they realise that Leslie has been selecting people from her church to sacrifice for years. This does not include Amy, who appeared to commit suicide but Nico believes was murdered by the Pride. She goes to the police, but leaves when she sees Victor and Robert talking with a policeman apparently on their payroll.
