Hulu Drops First Look Photos of Marvel’s Helstrom
The upcoming Helstrom series on Hulu has the unique distinction of being the last show produced under the Marvel TV banner. It’s based on Marvel’s Son of Satan comics from the ’70s; which featured Damion Hellstrom and his sister, Satana. The new series is taking some liberties with the source material. For example, Satana is called Ana, and the family name is Helstrom not Hellstrom. Additionally, Damion and Ana are now the children of a serial killer who “track down the worst of humanity.” However, we wouldn’t be shocked if the siblings discover that their father really was the devil.
IGN has debuted the first cast photos from Helstrom; which features most of the cast in character. Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon headline the series as Damion and Ana. One of the pics also introduces Elizabeth Marvel’s Victoria, the mother of the Helstrom siblings. Victoria may hold the key to unlocking the secrets of Damion and Ana’s true heritage. But Victoria has been institutionalized for years, and she may no longer be sane.
Robert Wisdom also co-stars in the series as Caretaker; a character originally created for the ’90s Ghost Rider comic. Additionally, Ariana Guerra appears as Gabriella Rosetti, with June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings, and Alain Uy as Chris Yen.
Helstrom will premiere on Hulu in October. The first season will run for ten episodes.
