The rule of thumb states all good heroes need a good villain. For the Runaways, the Marvel heroes need ten of them. To do that, you need damn good actors.
Like James Marsters- the guy who used to play Spike.
Deadline reports Marvel’s Runaways has found their Pride for the future Hulu series.
Marsters of Buffy fame will play Victor Stein, who is the father of Chase (“Talkback”) Stein. The group includes Ryan Sands, Kip Pardue, and Annie Wersching.
Executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are voicing their support of the cast.
“This cast is an abundance of riches. We are so excited to have assembled our PRIDE, though for the fate of humanity we should be very concerned,” they say in a statement.
Comic co-creator Brian K. Vaughn will serve as a consultant to the series. He says: “Marvel’s Runaways has enough great actors to support two shows, but I love that this project contains multiple generations of incredible talent all in one story.”
The Runaways has yet to film. No release date is set.
Here’s a list of who’s who in the cast:
James Marsters as Victor Stein
Ever Carradine as Janet Stein
James Yaegashi as Robert Minoru
Brittany Ishibashi as Tina Minoru
