The first trailer for Hulu’s upcoming Marvel Comics series Helstrom has been unveiled at Comic-Con@Home.
San Diego Comic-Con isn’t taking place in its usual form this year due to everything happening in the world right now, but that hasn’t stopped various film and TV companies from bringing their offerings to fans in a virtual environment instead.
Comic-Con@Home gave fans the chance to catch up with some of their favorite films and TV shows through virtual panels, but one new arrival was Marvel’s Helstrom.
The highly-anticipated Hulu series made its Comic-Con debut with its very own panel hosted by IGN’s Laura Prudom. It featured the cast of the project and Helstrom‘s own showrunner Paul Zbyszewski.
While fans were eager to hear more about the upcoming show, they were also excited as the panel dropped Helstrom‘s very first trailer. You can watch it (and the panel) here:
Based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name, Hulu’s Helstrom follows Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon) as the pair are children of a formidable killer that hunts the very worst that humanity has to offer.
It’s clear from the tone of the trailer that the show will be a lot darker and more serious than most Marvel properties.
The trailer also revealed that the series will be dropping on the streaming service on October 16 of this year. It also stars Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, June Carryl, Ariana Guerra and Alain Uy and will consist of 10 episodes.
