Marvel Television announced today that actress Elizabeth Hurley (“Gossip Girl,” “The Royals”) is set to portray the infamous Marvel character, Morgan le Fay during the upcoming third season of acclaimed series, Marvel’s Runaways on Hulu.
Morgan le Fay is an iconic Marvel villain. A student of Merlin, she is considered the greatest sorceress of all time. With a black crow as her familiar and the ability to enchant objects, manipulate mystic energy and astral project, she is powerful and intelligent with a cut-throat wit.
“Elizabeth Hurley is joining the Marvel Universe and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her portraying one of the most enchanting Marvel characters,” said executive producer and head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb.
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. Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were?
Marvel’s Runaways is a co-production with ABC Signature Studios and is executive produced by series showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage ("THE O.C.,” “GOSSIP GIRL") along with Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,” “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.”)
