Having announced its young leads for the TV series Runaways last week, the official Marvel site has now revealed the cast who’ll be portraying their parents, a.k.a. the supervillain cabal known as The Pride.
Via the official site:
Ryan Sands (Hat Hair, The Wire) as Geoffrey Wilder – is a man defined by the grueling path he’s taken to achieve his self-made success. A hulking presence, Geoffrey can effortlessly shift from approachable father to intimidating strategist with his son Alex.
Angel Parker (The People v. Oj Simpson: American Crime Story, The Strain) as Catherine Wilder – a successful lawyer, is deliberate and calculating in both her words and actions. But when it comes to her family, she’s fiercely loyal and a loving mother to her son Alex.

“Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were?”
That is among the questions at the fore of Hulu’s upcoming Marvel’s Runaways adaptation, and TVLine has a first look at the “Pride” Aka parents of the titular youths.
Among the familiar faces on hand are James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Annie Wersching (24), as well as Kevin Weisman (Alias), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives) and Ever Carradine (Major Crimes).
We recently learned which young actors will play the members of The Runaways in the Hulu series, but now ten more stars have been cast as the team's parents. A criminal organisation that controlled the Los Angeles area of the Marvel Universe, learning that their mothers and fathers were secretly villains is what led to The Runaways assembling in the first place, so expect this lot to play a key role here. "This cast is an abundance of riches," Executive Producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage said in a joint statement a little earlier today. "We are so excited to have assembled our Pride, though for the fate of humanity we should be very concerned…" Comic co-creator and series executive consultant Brian K. Vaughn added: "Marvel’s Runaways has enough great actors to support two shows, but I love that this project contains multiple generations of incredible talent all in one story. »
Sallie Patrick one of the key auspices behind the high-profile CW pilot Dynasty, has signed a new two-year overall deal with CBS TV Studios, which is behind the project.

If the pilot goes to series, Patrick will serve as showrunner. Under… »
Marvel has just announced the cast for their next television production, Marvel’s Runaways. Premiering on Hulu, the series is based on the comic created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona and will follow a group of teenagers who discover their parents are actually apart of a supervillain cabal.
The cast is as follows:
Ariela Barer (New Girl) as Gert Yorkes, a purple-haired, bespectacled, contemporary riot girl. Never passing up a moment to stand on a soapbox, Gert sometimes wields her persona as a brash social justice warrior to mask her true feelings. Lyrica Okano (The Affair) as Nico Minoru–tough, intelligent, and independent–embodies teenage angst. A budding “Wiccan,” Nico’s carefully crafted goth appearance isolates her from her peers and family, but maybe what she really needs is someone to talk to. Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf) as Alex Wilder is a loud-and-proud nerd. Admittedly a bit of a loner, »

Marvel has had an interesting run with their TV shows. While we had our doubts about how everything would turn out when it became clear that they’d have properties spread out across separate networks and streaming services, it all seems to be coming together. Rather than horde their franchises to the same safe, Disney-owned entity, they divvied up their properties based on demographic. The more general stuff would go on ABC, the adult stuff on Netflix, and the teen stuff would go on other services, like Hulu.
Their first foray into the more teen-centric space with Marvel’s Runaways. Don’t recognize the name? No worries. The I.P. has nowhere near the recognizability of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the like, but we’ve seen Marvel work wonders with relatively obscure characters and properties. At the end of the day, that red Marvel logo and overall execution »

Just about six months ago, we heard of Hulu and Marvel's partnership to create a Runaways series, based on the popular comic. Not being ones to daudle, Marvel Entertainment and Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have been hard at work to make this series a reality. Today, they took a big step forward by announcing the stars that will be portraying the beloved main characters.
Let's meet our new cast of rising stars that will become Runaways:
Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf, Casual) is set as Alex Wilder,a loud-and-proud nerd. Admittedly a bit of a loner, Alex spends much of his free-time playing video games, but deep down, what he wants most is to reunite his childhood group of friends.

It’s been a busy few days in the Marvel camp – when is it not? – after we caught wind of Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph landing the title roles in the upcoming Cloak and Dagger TV series earlier this week.
Switching gears from Freeform to Hulu and we now have confirmation that Runaways, the adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s award-winning comic series, has filled out its preliminary cast. Chronicling the remarkable story of six teenagers who rebel against their morally corrupt parents, Hulu’s serialized rendition will feature the same team of adolescent heroes seen in the 2003 series: Alex Wilder, Nico Minoru, Karolina Dean, Gertrude Yorkes (Aka Gert), Chase Stein, and Molly Hayes, who has been renamed Molly Hernandez.
Marvel has cherry-picked half a dozen rising stars to headline the new superhero series, which is expected to air via Hulu’s streaming service. Gossip Girl creators »
