We have Runaways! NYCC delivered the trailer we were waiting for: a full look at Hulu’s upcoming series. I’m pleased to report that from the impressions this trailer gives, it’s pretty darn faithful to the comic.
Most of what we see here is lifted directly from the comic by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, including much of the opening scenes where the kids discover what their parents are actually like…right down to Alex’s quote that their secret bookcase passage “is some Narnia ****,” which is verbatim from the original.
Other cool glimpses we get to see for half a second: Molly’s eyes glowing as she prepares to punch something, Karolina starting to glow as she discovers her alien powers, the friggin’ Staff of One (finally), and if you watch REALLY closely, you might even see the shadow of Old Lace.
