TRAILER: Marvel's 'Runaways' Could Be Hulu's Superpowered 'Riverdale'

Every teenager thinks their parents are evil, what if they actually are? Check out this early look at 'Marvel' s Runaways' exclusively on Hulu.


In the midst of New York Comic-Con, Hulu released the first trailer for Marvel's latest comic book adaptation series. Created for Hulu by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, 'Runaways' is based on the 2003 comic series of the same name by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona.

As far as teen dramas go, CW's darker reimagined Archie Comics characters in 'Riverdale' has made the show a hit and its good-looking cast into stars. The same might be in store for the stars of 'Runaways' whose parents, like those on 'Riverdale,' have some dark secrets of their own. It just so happens they're supervillains and the kids must put aside their differences to come together and face their parents.

Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, and Allegra Acosta star as the Runaways, six 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.

The series, consisting of 10 episodes, will premiere on November 21, 2017.



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.

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J. Mitte who played Walt Jr. to Bryan Cranston's Walter White, the school teacher turned meth kingpin on AMC's Breaking Bad, to reminisce about what made Big Walt a great dad. Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.




WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes Reunite for 'Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club' One-shot

This December, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of HELLBOY: KRAMPUSNACHT is reuniting for an all-new one-shot, HELLBOY &THE B.P.R.D.: THE SEVEN WIVES CLUB.


Written by legendary HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola and illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Hughes, this ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.


“The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season,” said Mignola. “We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes.”


“I’m dead thrilled to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice,” said Adam Hughes. “This one’s so spooky, I’m onl…
