Elizabeth Hurley confirms that she will be joining Marvel’s Runaways, playing the character of the series’ villain, Morgan le Fay. The season 3 of Runaways, which was confirmed recently, will feature the live-action debut of the devilish sorceress who is a villainous character.
Is It Confirmed That Elizabeth Hurley Joining Marvel?
Elizabeth Hurley herself confirmed on Twitter that she is excited to be playing Morgan le Fey, “an iconic Marvel villain”, in Marvel’s Runaways. Other than her, Runaways‘ executive producer and Marvel Television boss Jeph Loeb also confirmed Hurley’s role, by praising her casting and expressing excitement for her addition to the show.
Who is Morgan le Fey?
Morgan le Fay is a supervillain occurring in various Avengers comics. She is mainly a rival to The Avengers, but she has also been a villain to Spider-Woman in the original comics. She is also a former lover of Doctor Doom. She is immortal and has spent her time learning mystical powers, which makes her quite powerful.
Morgan has been a destructive character, especially in recent events where she took over the fantasy-inspired domain of Weird world.
How will Elizabeth Hurley feature in Season 3?
We don’t know exactly how her character will be introduced in the following season. Season 2 contradicted the earlier explanation of Nico’s Staff of One as a high-tech weapon. Season 2 said that the Staff might have a magical history, as we see Nico’s eyes begin to crack in the skin as she uses more powerful spells of the Staff. This might signify that the Staff is probably connected to the Dark Dimension, something which was explored in the other Marvel show, Agents of SHIELD.
We will have to wait to see how Hurley’s character enters the show, but we do know she will create a lot of trouble for the teenager superheroes.
