Marvel’s Runaways Stars Dish on Season 2: New Dangers, More Drama
The cast and crew of Marvel’s Runaways met with reporters during a set visit earlier this year, and they had a lot to say about what’s coming up on Season 2 of the Hulu hit.
One actor, in particular, could not be more thankful that he’s still part of the cast.
“I was hired to come in for seven episodes and then die,” James Marsters shared, confirming that he was not supposed to be a part of the cast at this point in the run.
“Instead, they decided to shoot me and then they just stuck me in a box.”
The star is more than happy that his character will ahve a long-term arc and is relishing finding out more about what’s to come.
It’s basically taking the character from a disposable bad guy — maybe the guy that is set up that the audience wants to hate and try to dig a littel deeper and find a human being under there that’s actually really well motivated,” he continued.
Can you imagine the show without Marsters? It almost happened. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum brings a lot to the table.
Marsters wnt on to speak about the biggest challenge of being on the series.
“My biggest challenge has been trying to convince my bosses that the Runaways are the villains,” he said.
I think it’s obvious and they don’t get it,” he added.
