Hulu is pushing forward with its new Runaways series, announcing a cast that will bring a new set of actors into the Marvel universe, led by Gregg Sulkin.
The London-born actor will star as Chase Stein, according to The Hollywood Reporter, who many call a dumb jock because of his lacrosse stardom in the school, but who instead “exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering.”
Chase, of course, will discover he and some other teens at the school are actually children of a terrible crime organization, and they have to join forces to fight their own parents.
Sulkin probably is best known for playing Liam Booker in the MTV comedy series Faking It. He also played Mason Greyback in Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place.
The story was created by Brian K. Vaughan, and published through Marvel’s now-defunct Tsunami imprint between 2003 and 2009. Vaughan also is the creator of Y: The Last Man, which FX announced late last year it was turning into a television series.
The current series is based on a pilot written by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, probably best known for their work on Gossip Girl, and who also are currently developing a Dynasty reboot for The CW. Schwartz also made his mark as the co-creator of the popular NBC series Chuck, which starred Zachary Levi as a store clerk who suddenly finds himself become a secret agent.
