TV| | By Brian Delpozo
Marvel Television has released its first full-length trailer for its upcoming Hulu series Runaways.
Based on the popular Marvel Comics series created by writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Adrian Alphona in the early 2000s, the series will focus on a group of high school students who discover that they have superpowers related to a secret villainous cult, known as The Pride, that all their parents are involved in.
The clip indicates that the series will stay true to its comic origins, putting heavy emphasis on the teens’ high school experience and interpersonal relationships, as well as their quest to “right the wrongs” committed by their parents.
The official synopsis for the series reads as follows:
After discovering their parents are super-villains in disguise, a group of teenagers band together to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents’ actions and to discover the secrets of their origins.
Developed for live action by showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C., Chuck, Gossip Girl), Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, and Allegra Acosta. The series is scheduled to debut on Hulu November 21, just four days after Marvel’s The Punisher debuts on Netflix.
