Marvel recently announced its cast for the Hulu live-action series, Runaways, and they could not be more perfect. The series is based on the comics created by the award-winning team Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona.
“I’m so excited for fans of the comic to watch this perfect cast of amazing actors, all of whom embody the spirit of their characters more than I ever could have imagined,” said Vaughan in the official announcement.
As a big fan of the comic book series, I am extremely excited to see this group of kids come to life in the form of a live-action show. While parts of the expanding story suffered a bit here and there, mainly because of it falling into the hands of other writers and artists, the initial story of six diverse kids standing up to their evil parents won me over all those years ago.
Gert, Chase, and Molly were my absolutely favorites, but if the series is successful and continues on to touch on other parts of the comics, I truly can’t wait to see Victor Mancha, one of my favorite Marvel characters.
