Watch 'Marvel's Runaways' on Hulu November 21!

Fan excitement is reaching fever pitch as “Marvel’s Runaways” nears its debut on Hulu next week. Based on the celebrated comic by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, “Runaways” follows six teens who find out their parents are part of a super villain team called the Pride. It’s time to get to know these legendary families and talk to the actors who are bringing “Runaways” to life.

Marvel.com spoke with to Rhenzy Feliz, who plays Alex Wilder; Angel Parker, who plays Catherine Wildere; and Ryan Sands, who plays Geoffrey Wilder. We talked to the Wilder family about their relationship and what it’s like raising a moody teenager in the Marvel Universe.

Feliz told us how tragedy changed the Wilders. “Alex’s relationship with his parents at the start of the series was a very good relationship. He loves his parents and he understands what they do for him, but then as things go on, it deals with how a relationship forms or continues after you find something out like that.”

“A lot has happened to him. The death of a friend, especially one that you were close to, and this group that you were very close to. When you’re a teenager it’s hard enough, but to throw that into the mix,” said Parker. “People are trying on different identities in high school. You’re trying on different skins, different clothes, different makeup, different personalities, and that doesn’t work well with grief in the center of it. We understand why he’s moody, why he’s changed, his solitude. We want to pull him out, it is time. It’s time to get through this, which is how we begin, but it’s easier said than done.”

Alex’s change in personality might be partly why he gravitates to being the leader of the Runaways. “Everyone has their own distinct personalities within the characters, within the Runaways, but I think Alex organically takes the lead because he’s so calculating,” said Feliz. “He thinks about things a lot.”

Looking at it from a father’s perspective, Parker said it’s black and white in the show. “You just see all sides of the same story. Being able to go on that journey and see how Alex goes through it. The leader that he starts to become, finding himself, and then being in these relationships with his friends while also trying to get to the truth. We are proud that our son would do that in such a good way, until, you know, it affects us. But at least he’s a strong kid.”

As opposed to the other Pride parents, Geoffrey and Catherine have a warmth and a care that resonates between them. Sands attributed that to the Wilders’ working together. “Early in the season, we both pick each other up at crucial times. So, we’re still moving forward, we’re moving forward as a unit. When one’s down, the other one lifts them up. We continue to stay on track and to keep going forward with this mission that we’re on. It’s really fun to play. We don’t necessarily get a chance to see that all the time on TV.”

Parker agreed, “There’s a love and respect that the Wilders have for each other. You do get to see how the Wilders first met and how their relationship grows from there; they respect each other. They have each other’s back. Just to have a loving black couple on television, as an actor, I’m very proud to be a part of that. And Ryan and I get along and respect and love each other as well. So, when we come into a scene when we’re figuring out how these characters are going to interact with each other, we come from ourselves. We have a mutual respect and understanding that what’s best for us is best for everyone and we have the same goal to do this right.”

Parker and Sands agree that the Wilders’ support for each other is what makes them great Pride leaders. Parker said respect is the key, “Every now and then, if something is a little off, we’re real quick to check each other and be like ‘Hey hey. We’re doing this together, right? We’re doing this together and this is why we’re doing this. Let’s not forget that,’ which is a strong marriage in any realm. So maybe that helps with leading the Pride; people respect us because we respect each other.”

Stonehouse delivers out of this world art piece for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' program.

We close out the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100” art program with artist Stonehouse capturing the highlights of Season 5 so far.

In case you missed it, take a look at the previous seasons captured by Dale Keown (Season 1)Daniel Acuña (Season 2), Nick Bradshaw (Season 3), and Rahzzah (Season 4).

With barely any time to recuperate from the events of Season 4, our agents were thrusted 70+ years into the future on a quaked apart earth by the Destroyer of Worlds as the clock ticks out on humanity. Flanking the art piece are Kasius, the Kree who rules over the Lighthouse, and his second-in-command, Sinara, who keeps the remaining humans in line. In addition to Kasius and Sinara, the agents are joined by Deke, a roguish scavenger, and a hard man to trust.

At the heart of the piece, we find Fitz and Simmons reunited after Fitz traveled across time and space to find Simmons.

“The Fitz-Simmons’ proposal is such a big moment for the show, the fans, and for everyone involved,” shared executive producers and showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen exclusively to Marvel.com. “It is the culmination of a relationship that has been maturing since Day One, and it’s only fitting that it was directed by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Director Clark Gregg.”

As the prophecy of Quake destroying the world looms over our agents, what can we expect from this season as we draw near the 100th episode and beyond for our agents? According to Whedon and Tancharoen, “They are going to have to try to do everything they can to stop the future they saw from coming to bear. The problem is they only have vague clues as to what events lead to the earth’s destruction. It will be a race against the clock as well as a puzzle and also a mystery and a conundrum and a rigamarole and a doozy.”

Season Five will return Friday, March 2. Don’t miss the 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air Friday, March 9 at 9|8c on ABC!

Rahzzah takes on Hydra in new art program piece.

We’re weeks away from the landmark 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and here to commemorate Season 4 of the Marvel TV series is artist Rahzzah. Don’t forget to look back at the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100” Season 1 piece by Dale Keown, Season 2 piece by Daniel Acuña, and Season 3 piece by Nick Bradshaw.

The dynamic fourth season was shook by the following key events that continue to haunt our agents — at the core of the art piece by Rahzzah is the introduction of Ghost Rider. Who can forget Daisy and Robbie Reyes’ rough start as they crossed paths in Los Angeles tracking down the Watchdogs who were hunting down Inhumans? Striking out on her own, Daisy had to cope with the effects of her ‘quake’ powers on her body.

Season 4 introduced us to another new character, Jeffrey Mace, who was appointed by the President to be the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and enforce his vision for the organization in their new partnership with the government.

Meanwhile, the season heats up as Radcliffe and Fitz develop Life Model Decoys. As Mack and his love of sci-fi movies taught us, nothing bodes well when robots become sentient. Aida gets a little more intense and a lot more deadly when exposed to the Darkhold. Devising her own cat-and-mouse game, Aida thinks she’s doing our team a kindness by removing each of their biggest regrets in the Framework, creating a ‘what-if’ world where Hydra is in charge.

Relationships are complicated when you’re an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and unfortunately for Coulson, he ended up locking lips with LMD May. Aida envisioned herself as Madame Hydra with a callous Fitz by her side. And Mack was reunited with his daughter Hope. Could Yo-Yo draw him out of the Framework to save his life?

In one of the defining moments of the season, Mace as the Patriot, assuring his life is real, sacrifices himself to save a child when a Hydra correctional facility is attacked on Aida’s orders. In sacrificing himself, he also sacrificed his real human self in the real world.

The choices and experiences made in this season continue to reverberate for our agents as they navigate Season 5. Some of which have yet to come to light…

Season Five will return Friday, March 2. Don’t miss the 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air Friday, March 9 at 9|8c on ABC!

Wendy Willming on how Season 3 of the series redefined Hydra's history and purpose.

Today, we shine a spotlight on Season 3 of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” as we draw closer to the landmark 100th episode.

The next piece, shown below, in the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100” art program comes from artist Nick Bradshaw, and helping us walk down memory lane is “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” producer Wendy Willming. Don’t miss the Season 1 piece and Season 2 piece.

Marvel.com: Bradshaw highlights several key moments from Season 3. What were the significance of these scenes and how did it impact our agents?

Wendy Willming: These moments depict some of our more iconic scenes and Bradshaw weaving a sense of evil throughout the piece is telling of the many layers that are uncovered this season.

On the far left, Fitz holds Simmons after he pulls her out of the portal from Maveth – a sunless, desert-like planet where Simmons was stranded for “4,722 Hours,” which also happens to be the title of the 5th episode in this season.

Shown on the far right, Coulson dives into the portal after Ward and Fitz. Coulson ultimately kills Ward with his prosthetic hand, finally destroying the evil that has plagued our agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for years. Unbeknownst to our team back on Earth, an ancient and parasitic Inhuman named Hive, finds Ward’s body and returns in his form until he reveals his true appearance – an octopod-like creature – that Bradshaw has depicted on the right.

In the bottom left hand corner, the art piece also features the Secret Warriors, finally together . It’s an iconic moment for our Inhuman agents – Daisy Johnson, Elena ‘Yo-Yo’ Rodriguez, Lincoln Campbell and Joey Gutierrez.

Bradshaw also gives us Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter, our beloved bickering couple. Fans will remember the episode “Parting Shot.” Morse and Hunter choose to leave S.H.I.E.L.D. after their lives are spared with the caveat that they never work for the U.S. government again. The team takes a shot in their honor but their undeniable presence is sorely missed.

Marvel.com: Hydra breaks the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo and its tentacles looms over the entire piece. How had the Hydra revelations change the course of the season?

Wendy Willming: The revelations that unfold throughout the season give a whole new perspective and understanding of Hydra’s history in the Marvel Universe. It also ties in the thread of Inhumans. In our third season, we learn that Hive is the source of Hydra and what an ancient, parasitic Inhuman has built, lived on to become the most feared institution in history. For fans and anyone keeping track of the Marvel U thus far, it redefines Hydra’s history and purpose.

 

Marvel.com: As we near the 100th episode, is there anything you’d like to share with the cast, the teams behind the scenes and the fans?

Wendy Willming: I’ve had the incredible fortune of being apart of Season 3 and our current Season 5. It’s a privilege to be a part of such a wonderful group of storytellers and artists. Everyone on this team, and it takes a village and then some, has been a complete joy because they love what they do and they love the show they get to bring to life every single day. I truly believe that if you love your job, it shows on screen. And this group, shows it on screen every week. Here’s to 100 more!

Season Five will return Friday, March 2. Don’t miss the 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air Friday, March 9 at 9|8c on ABC!
