While Netflix is home to the lion's share of Marvel TV shows, Hulu will soon get a slice of the action.
Kids all know their parents are the devil. Some have already pointed out their frustrations that the directors did not cast a larger actress for the part of Gert, who is a bigger in the comics, something that a lot of people looked up to and what made Runaways stand apart. The teens, who grew up together but have since grown apart, discover their parents' villainy when they see their parents perform the Rite of Blood, a ritual sacrifice of an innocent victim would be fed to the Gibborim, an entity that provided the families with wealth and power. The comics are pretty dark, so it will be interesting to see just exactly how Hulu pulls of the series.
Marvel's Runaways is being produced by some of television's most notable creators, including Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl), Stephanie Savage (The O.C.), Jim Chory (Jessica Jones) and Marvel's head of television, Jeph Loeb (The Defenders, Jessica Jones). Filming started back in February of this year and production is expected to wrap in a few weeks.
Hulu has released a new teaser for their upcoming show Marvel's Runaways.
