Marvel’s Runaways Removed From Disney+ And Hulu Without Warning

“Runaways” ran for 3 seasons on Hulu between 2017 to 2019. There have been six major characters: the nerdy chief Alex Wilder (Rhenzy Feliz); goth sorceress Nico Minoru (Lyrica Okano); Karolina Dean (Virginia Gardner), who struggles along with her identification and sexuality; Gert Yorkes (Ariela Baer), a junior activist with a pet velociraptor; the jockish Chase Stein (Greg Sulkin); and the mutant Molly Hernadez (Allegra Acosta).

The ultimate season, the place the Runaways face off towards Morgan le Fay (Elizabeth Hurley), wasn’t essentially deliberate to be the ending. The finale foreshadows an look by a significant comedian character: Victor Mancha, the android son of Ultron. However, the collection was produced by the now-defunct Marvel Television, overseen by comedian veterans Jeph Loeb and Joe Quesada (who’re created as government producers on “Runaways”). Unlike the Netflix Marvel exhibits akin to “Daredevil,” “Runaways” and its sister present “Cloak & Dagger” have been supposed to attract a youthful viewers.

However, any additional plans all led to 2019, when the duty for MCU tv was moved in-house to Marvel Studios beneath Kevin Feige’s route. That’s why subsequent Disney+ Marvel exhibits are instantly tied to the flicks. Aside from particularly standard parts (Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin), Marvel Studios would not seem like tremendous excited about preserving the work of the once-independent Marvel Television. “Cloak & Dagger” remains to be on Hulu, but it surely could possibly be on the chopping block subsequent.

Fortunately, “Runaways” remains to be accessible to buy or hire on VOD companies, together with Apple TV, YouTube, Prime Video, Vudu, and Google Play.
