With Marvel’s Runaways currently in development ahead of its premiere on Hulu later this year, this series has added Julian McMahon to its ranks.
The Australian actor is no stranger to genre fans, having made a name for himself in the likes of Charmed and Nip/Tuck before landing the role of Doctor Doom in Tim Story’s Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. More recently, he’s been seen in the brilliant Dirk Gently. In Runaways, McMahon will be playing a character known as Jonah; a mystery figure who will play a pivotal part in the Runaways’ rebellion against their nefarious parents.
On the news, executive producers and showrunners Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz said, “We’re incredibly excited to add Julian to our exceptional cast and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the world of Marvel’s Runaways.”
The early synopsis on this new series reads:
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel’s Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents.
Marvel’s Runaways is set to premiere on Hulu on November 21st. At this stage, a UK home has yet to be confirmed for the series.
