runaways trailer

Until now, the trailers for Marvel’s Runaways seemed to lean heavily on the “runaways” element of the title and not the “Marvel” element. It makes sense — the Hulu series is created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage of The OC fame, and is catered to the young adult demographic, relying on teen soap tropes to bring the characters from the Marvel Comics to life.
