The Runaways Has A Hot New Trailer And An Upcoming Release Date For Hulu!

Freshly released – a new trailer for the upcoming Marvel series, Runaways. This one really ups the drama and effects, as we see not only the full compliment of kids and parents, but a couple of glimpses of Old Lace, a dinosaur that’s psychically connected to Gertrude. The series also announced it’s release date for Hulu’s first Marvel project, as we’ll get to see the first 3 episodes of the 10 episode season on November 21.

Runaways is about 6 very different teenagers who don’t really like each other, but are forced together by the friendship of their parents, whom they find comprise an evil cabal called The Pride. The series is executive produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, of course Marvel’s head of television, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are highly involved. This will be the first of ABC Signature Studio’s live-action Marvel efforts to air, which will be followed by next year’s Cloak & Dagger, and New Warriors series, both coming to Freeform next year. They additionally are producing an animated Deadpool series with Donald and Stephen Glover, also slated for 2018.


What if interracial relationships gave you super powers? Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger wants to find out.

Well, that was fast. Only a few weeks after filling in the top line roles for Cloak & Dagger, we already have our first trailer! The show is coming to Freeform and the trailer looks like the show will fit in with the normal fare on that channel (Pretty Little Liars, anyone?) It also features one of my favorites – a story based on an interracial relationships. Truth be told, the only superpower that comes from those is pretty babies (thanks Mom & Dad.)

The cast for this one is pretty strong, so as long as we can get past the idea of starting this story at the YA level, we should be in for some fun. We’ll be discussing this and more, this Sunday at the Trusty Sidekick Live Podcast recording, this Sunday (4/23) at the Laugh Factory in Chicago. Contact us at for comp ticket info!
