Interview with Marvel’s Runaways Actor Angel Parker About Her Character Catherine Wilder

source: https://comicsverse.com/marvels-runaways-angel-parker-interview/

The latest episode of our podcast features a conversation with Marvel’s RUNAWAYS cast member — Angel Parker. In addition to “Runaways,” Angel most recently recurred on NBC’s “Trial and Error” opposite John Lithgow, and also recurred on FX’s hit series “The Strain.” Another standout project was appearing in FX’s critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning series “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.” Angel was a scene stealer as famed celebrity attorney Shawn Chapman, one of Simpson’s ‘Dream Team’ lawyers.

The ability for me to restrain my excitement over Marvel’s RUNAWAYS on Hulu likely exists outside my skillset. With a major cult following stretching back to the middle of 2003, the RUNAWAYS comic books by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona started a revolution in comic book storytelling. 14 years and currently five volumes of collected work later, these young heroes have some stories left in them. Recently, Hulu has begun releasing episodes weekly for their original series based on the hit comics. With a deep focus on characterization and an obvious adoration for the source material, this show sets the bar high for future MCU television releases.

RUNAWAYS seeks to answer one simple question. What would happen if our parents were really as bad as our teenage selves believed? What if they were really supervillains? For Alex Wilder, Nico Minoru, Gertrude Yorkes, Chase Stein, Molly Hernandez, and Karolina Dean, they don’t have to imagine. They are living it. After stumbling upon a cryptic sacrificial ritual, the teens gather evidence again their parent’s underground criminal empire. Along the way, they garner new powers, new weapons, and a pet dinosaur to boot.

On RUNAWAYS, Parker plays Catherine Wilder, the mother of Alex and a member of the supervillainous Pride. Catherine is a successful, deliberate and calculating lawyer and acts as a defining member of the Pride. When it comes to family, she is fiercely loyal as well as a loving mother and protector of her son. Parker plays the character with a cold yet steely edge, giving her scenes a much-needed tension. Luckily, she is much kinder in person, and she has agreed to give ComicsVerse her thoughts on all things acting and RUNAWAYS!

Mystery!

On this week’s episode Gwen and Derek discuss three recent releases that, while all being quite different, nonetheless share a common theme of mystery. They start off with Jon Chad’s Bad Mask (BOOM! Box), a multimedia project that explores perspective and interpretation. With its various components in multiple print formats — comic book, trading cards, newspaper tabloid, mainstream news magazine, business reports, etc. — it’s an intelligent exploration of how we define “hero.” Next, the Two PhDs Talking about Comics explore the first issue of Evolution (Image Comics). This is a different kind of comic in that it’s written by four authors…and the result is solid and far from fragmented. James Asmus, Joseph Keatinge, Christopher Sebela, and Joshua Williamson contribute to the story, with Joe Infurnari providing the art. Finally, Gwen and Derek look at Noël Simsolo and Bézian’s Doctor Radar #1 (Titan Comics). This is a translation that taps into the crime noir genre, expertly done and perhaps the highlight of the week.

The Great American Mythological Drama

On this interview episode Derek talks with Tim Lane about his series Happy Hour in America, Vol. 2, the first issue of which is just being released from Fantagraphics Books. This isn’t the first time that Tim has been interviewed on The Comics Alternative. In January 2015, Derek published on the blog a text-based conversation with him that he had conducted via email. That was a insightful and substantive interview, but the current one goes even further, allowing Tim not only to comment on his current work, but to delve into a variety of other topics, such as the business side of the medium, the state of comic books as a publishing platform, and matters of comics pedagogy. But the core of the conversation concerns Tim’s latest efforts in this new volume of Happy Hour in America, his fascination with twentieth-century Americana, his previous collections — Abandoned Cars and The Lonesome Go — and the interpretive biography he currently has underway, Just Like Steve McQueen. This is an unusually long interview, running just over two hours, but it’s an engaging conversation that will introduce you to Tim’s “Great American Mythological Drama.”

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 166: The World’s Worst Detective, or: Rorschach, Meet Vibe

Marvel Studios’s latest Netflix series, The Punisher, dropped all at once a couple of weeks ago, and it was, in a lot of ways, very different than the series that have been delivered up until now. Sure, the other series dealt with adult themes – Jessica Jones tackled being a survivor of abuse, Luke Cage dealt with racism, and Iron Fist took on the perils of being a boring rich white guy no one likes – but none of those series featured a protagonist who stabs people in the neck just to watch them die.

So we spend a chunk of the show talking about The Punisher, how it handles themes of PTSD and how war destroys not only soldiers, but also their families… and how those weighty issues map to a story that delivers the cheap thrill of watching Jersey mooks having their legs broken by a man sometimes known as “Shooty Batman.”

But the money of the week is the release of the first issue of Doomsday Clock #1, written by Geoff Johns with art by Gary Frank. This is the real beginning of DC Comics not only sequelizing Alan Moore’s and Dave Gibbons’s Watchmen, but putting characters from the DC Universe onto a collision course with that universe. While we’ve both been enjoying DC: Rebirth, Rob is a huge fan of the original Watchmen, and thus has been DREADING the release of this book. So we break it down, and come to a couple of surprising conclusions.

This episode was recorded live to tape, with minimal editing, so if you’re looking for a podcast where the hosts are pretty convinced they came up with the moniker, “Shooty Batman,” you’ve come to the right place!
