Marvel’s “#The Runaways” will be making its TV debut next month on Hulu. They’ve just dropped the first trailer and it seems like they will be faithful to the original adaptation. The show will star some iconic Hollywood personalities like Lyrica Okano, Gregg Sulkin, Virginia, Gardener, and Ariela Barer. While the live action series will aim to adapt most of the original comic scenes to the live action series, Okano mentioned that there will be some slight changes.

21 on Hulu, so that’s something to look forward to if you’ve followed the comics. The show is based on the 2003 series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. The show centers around a group of six teenagers who discover that their parents are part of a supervillain group known as The Pride. After witnessing a shocking act, the six of them escape and discover that they each have their own superpower.

“The Runaways” is now part of Marvel’s growing television properties like “Agents of Shield,” “Cloak and Dagger,” and “The Defenders.” That said, the upcoming show will cater to young adults, which is fitting enough as “OC” creator Josh Schwartz and “Gossip Girl” co-creator Stephanie Savage are handling the show. Watch the first trailer below to learn more.

Cut scenes

In other news, some of the stars appeared during this year’s New York City Comic Con to talk about the show, as per Polygon.

There, Okano revealed that they had to remove one specific scene from the comic book. One of the characters, Nico, had to cut herself to summon her weapon. The actress mentioned that Schwartz and Savage thought it was best to remove that scene because of the show’s target audience.

“There’s going to be a lot of young teenagers who are going to be watching the show and we don’t want to promote anything like self-harming because that’s very serious,” Okano explained, “There is an element of drawing blood, though, I will say.” While the actress didn’t go into further detail, blood will still play an important role in Nico’s character arc.

That said, Netflix was recently under fire for the graphic scenes in “13 Reasons Why.” The show centered around a young girl named Hannah Baker and her suicide story, hence the extremities. It seems like “The Runaways” is trying to avoid any kind of controversy, and rightfully so. #Comic Book Series
