Things We Saw Today: Marvel Announces Official Runaways Cast


Things are really coming together for Marvel’s new TV series Runaways, set to be released on Hulu. Based on the comic of the same name, it centers on a group of teens who don’t really like each other but must unite to take down a common enemy–their parents. The official cast has been announced and you might recognize a few faces.  Teen Wolf’s Rhenzy Feliz will play proud nerd Alex Wilder while Lyrica Okano  is set to take on the role of Nico Minoru, a tough and independent Wiccan full of the teen angst Nirvana often sang about. Check out the rest of the cast here. (via Marvel)
