Marvel's Runaways Casts Elizabeth Hurley as Morgan le Fey

Tony Sokol Jun 5, 2019

Marvel's Runaways conjures the devilish Elizabeth Hurley to play sorceress Morgan le Fey.

Elizabeth Hurley, who Bedazzled us as the devil in the 2000 faustian comedy, will next play one of literature's greatest sorceresses. Marvel's Runaways Season 3 has cast Hurley as Morgan le Fay, according to Variety.

“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," Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television and executive producer of Runaways, said in a statement.

Morgan le Fay is best known as the less-than-stellar student of the great Wizard Merlin. She first appeared in Sir Thomas Malory's 1485 page-turner Le Morte d'Arthur, as King Arthur's half sister and mother to one of his children. She is the lady who threw the sword Excalibur in the lake.

Morgan gets her roots from Welsh mythology and

Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ Adds Elizabeth Hurley As Morgan LeFay

Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ Adds Elizabeth Hurley As Morgan LeFay
Elizabeth Hurley will be bringing some dark magic to Marvel’s Runaways on Hulu in the Season 3 role of Morgan Le Fey, a sorceress with considerable history and even greater power.

The Royals actress will be taking on the role of a character that dates back to 1955 in the lore of Marvel Comics (then still known as Atlas Comics). The character made her debut in The Black Knight issue No. 1, which introduced the nefarious Le Fey as the scheming half-sister of King Arthur of Camelot and a high priestess born with faerie heritage.

That 1955 issue was written by Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee, who imported Le Fey’s name and persona from the classic Arthurian legends that mesmerized him as a child. Black Knight issue No. 1 was illustrated by Joe Maneely, who is credited as the character’s co-creator along with Lee.

The character description from the Runaways producers: “Morgan

Elizabeth Hurley has been cast in the upcoming third season of the Marvel-Hulu series “Runaways,” Variety has learned.

“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 “Runways” executive producer and head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb.

The role reunites Hurley with “Runaways” showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. The duo previously created the series “Gossip Girl,” on which Hurley portrayed Diana Payne during the show’s fifth season. Hurley most recently starred in the drama series “The Royals.” She

DVD Review – Killer Party (2018)

Killer Party, 2018.

Directed and Written by Chris von Hoffman.

Starring Sam Strike, Virginia Gardner, Brandon Micheal Hall, Erin Moriarty, Kian Lawley, Julian McMahon, Robin Tunney, and Lance Reddick.

Synopsis:

Three young thieves infiltrate a mansion dinner party secretly hosted by a group of recovering murderers for the social elite.

A fun slasher horror going for laughs rather than jumps and scares, Killer Party (also known as Monster Party in the USA) scores high for amusing ridiculousness. A clever central conceit of a trio of young thieves breaking into a party hosted by serial killers is a strong concept that promises blood, gore and guts. The movie wholly delivers in this respect, also serving up laughs and entertaining slapstick humour.

The plot is pretty simple; three crims stake out places in wealthy neighbourhoods, break in and then run off with the loot. Aside from wanting to get rich quick, Casper (Sam

Movie Review – Starfish (2018)

Starfish, 2018.

Directed by A.T. White.

Starring Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, and Eric Beecroft.

Synopsis:

A unique, intimate and honest portrayal of a girl grieving for the loss of her best friend. That just happens to take place on the day the world ends as we know it.

The elevator pitch for Starfish is simple; combine the otherworldly nature of Stranger Things with the emotionally devastating treasure hunt of 13 Reasons Why. However comparing it with the two feels like a disservice to what A.T. White has set out to achieve here in his directorial debut. There’s so much more bubbling under the surface than simple genre mechanics. Instead what plays out is a melancholic depiction of grief which stays with the audience long after the credits. This isn’t a typical bombastic painting of the apocalypse, instead it’s a quiet reflection on an individual’s place in the world,

Home Entertainment: Starfish Digital Review

A young woman, struggling with the death of her friend, finds herself entangled in a mystery about the universe as a mysterious signal, from an unknown dimension, brings about the end of days. Locked in her deceased friends apartment, she much decipher the meaning behind a tape cassette labelled as “this mix tape will save the world”, whilst at the same time avoiding monsters from another reality.

Starfish opens with the immortal words, ‘based on a true story’, and whilst it’s highly unlikely that someone tried to save the world from an invasion from another dimension, the truth likely is based within the bereavement felt by our main character Aubrey. First time feature director (and lead singer/songwriter of UK band Ghost Light) A. T. White, captures the tumultuous nature of grief. The entire film is coated with melancholy, but far from being buried with sadness, Starfish has a

‘Killer Party’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Sam Strike, Erin Moriarty, Robin Tunney, Julian McMahon, Lance Reddick, Virginia Gardner, Kian Lawley | Written and Directed by Chris von Hoffman

When three teenage thieves infiltrate a mansion dinner party they have plans for pulling off an easy and lucrative heist. Little do they know that the dinner party is actually hosted for a group of recovering serial killers that have gone ‘sober’ and fought to change the error of their ways. Once the mansion owners realise they are about to be robbed all hell breaks loose.

I love home invasion movies. Even moreso when those whose homes are being invaded are not quite who or, in some cases, what they appear. Taking the typical home invasion flick and turning it on its head by having the hunters become the hunted usually makes for some intriguing, exciting storytelling. Especially when said homeowners are as blatantly evil as the antagonists,

Movie Review – Starfish (2018)

Starfish, 2018.

Directed by A.T. White.

Starring Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, and Eric Beecroft.

Synopsis:

A unique, intimate and honest portrayal of a girl grieving for the loss of her best friend. That just happens to take place on the day the world ends as we know it.

What happens when your grief and anxiety is so bad that it seems like it’s the end of the world? And then, to make things even worse, it is the end of the world?

A.T. White’s assured debut explores all this and much more in a memorable genre-shifting work that embraces vintage Lovecraftian cosmic horror mixed with 90s-era angst trauma. The beautifully skewed vision is teeming with ideas that artfully explode onto the screen, providing a psychedelic flurry of dream-scenes and nightmare imaginings that are both transporting and memorable.

Following Aubrey (an assured performance from Gardner) as she struggles to

Review Round-Up: Charlie Says, Starfish, and In Memory Of

2019 has been a very busy year so far for the horror genre, as we’ve been getting a ton of films coming out over the last few months, which can make it hard to keep up. Here’s a look at a trio of projects that I recently had the opportunity of viewing: Mary Harron’s Charlie Says, which arrives in theaters in Los Angeles today, writer/director A.T. White’s Starfish, and In Memory Of from filmmaker Eric Stanze.

Charlie Says: For Charlie Says, filmmaker Mary Harron explores the manipulative spell that the infamous Charles Manson (Matt Smith) cast over his followers, and in this case, three different women—Leslie Van Houten (Hannah Murray), Susan Atkins (Marianne Rendón), and Patricia Krenwinkel (Sosie Bacon)—who were incarcerated for their involvement in the brutal killings that rocked Los Angeles (and the entire world) in 1969. The trio were incarcerated together, kept away from the general population,

Friday One Sheet: Starfish

The 'grain' on this third piece of key art for A.T. White's Starfish (the other two are also great) resides somewhere in the space between digital noise, and oil canvas texture. This is apt for a film that bills itself as a 'science fiction, end of the world, mix tape.' The tagline at the bottom says so. What I think makes La Associates' design really stand out, is the sideways orientation of Virginia Gardner's visage. Like many 'askew' designs, the promise is implicit that the film is offbeat, or at least, non-conforming. And while I have not seen the film itself, critical receptions seems to be in line with this. Starfish will be available on...
