    In addition to that
    In any case, I hope they honor that in this show.

    Keep in mind this is going to be a pilot and they almost never pertain to what the show is actually like.

    Late to the party, just noticed this...last I checked, "Runaways" was one of the shows being entertained as coming to "Freeform". Or maybe that was "Cloak and Dagger".

    Anyway, I think "Hulu" is a much better alternative to "Freeform". People here complaining about it coming to Hulu must all have cable or something. I don't have cable, but I do have a Netflix account, a Hulu account, an Amazon account, and I'm also watching some cable channels by way of "Sling TV". Hulu's also moving into live broadcasts for certain channels so they are no longer just a place to dump NBC and FOX reruns.

    1/7: Interesting. I think the TCA just finished a press tour with Hulu series yesterday or today.

    "Runaways" was always attached to Hulu. And yes, "Cloak and Dagger" is attached to Freeform.

    2/1: Day in February from what Rory posted was revealed. So in total, filming starts February 13, 2017 in LA under "Rugrats"

    They could get sued for the name.

    The six leads have been announced. Rhenzy Feliz is playing Alex, Lyrica Okano is playing Nico, Virginia Gardner is playing Karolina, Ariela Barer is playing Gert, Greg Sulkin is playing Chase, and Allegra Acosta is playing Molly.

    Barer is the only one I'm familiar with, since she's on One Day At A Time.

    None ring any bells but that hasn't stopped me from watching something from Marvel yet.

    Good to see The Pride confirmed if though pretty obvious. Implications for Nico's mom continue...

    They all relatively look the parts, and the personalities sound right (though Nico sounds post-character development to some degree), so all-in-all looking good :).

    And if Vaughn is happy with them, the guy who created these characters, that's good enough for me ;).

    I'm guessing they changed Molly's last name to reflect the actresses ethicnicity?

    "Lyrica Okano" sounds like an anime name. Curious to see how they'll handle Nico's fashion in this series...

    Now the big question is who all is going to play the Pride :evil:?

    I'm glad that this is finally happening. Runaways was one of my favorite mainstream titles!

    Not surprised they recast Tina Minoru but hope they don't totally ignore the Dr. Strange stuff. A mention of her training at Kamar-Taj or the Hong Kong incident is enough for me, imo.

    James Marsters is the only person I recognize in this group :sweat:.

    I wonder if there's a reason they haven't listed Molly's parents o_O?

    How come those descriptions make them sound completely unvillainous?

    Could be. There must be something going on given they're the only members of The Pride left-out here o_O.
    To not spoil the first episode twist like in the comics ;)?
