Marvel announced the cast for their their upcoming series ‘Helstrom’

Get ready for a darker side of Marvel, perfect for binge-watching. After months of speculation, Marvel announced the cast for their upcoming live-action television series, Helstrom. According to Marvel‘s website, “the series will mark Marvel’s first foray into terror and is slated for debut in 2020.”

“We feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a cast loaded with this much talent,” said series Executive Producer and Showrunner Paul Zbyszewski. “From the beginning, we knew we’d need a group of actors who were multifaceted, who could play all the chords any great Marvel show promises to play, from dramatic thriller to comedy to action. It’s going to be really fun to watch them work.”

Tom Austen will portray Daimon Helstrom in Marvel’s upcoming series

The lead role of this series, Daimon Helstrom, will be portrayed by Tom Austen. Previously, the actor appeared in Grantchester and The Borgias. Now, Austen portrays this professor who doubles as an exorcist. His mission is to cast out evil and demons, by whatever means necessary.

Sydney Lemmon will portray the character Ana Helstrom

Sydney Lemmon, who previously starred in Succession and Fear The Walking Dead, will portray Ana Helstrom. Another lead role, Ana is just as cool and edgy as Daimon. According to the character description, “By day, Ana runs a successful auction house and suffers no fools, but her true interest lies in hunting down those who hurt others. Traumatized by her father as a child, Ana is driven to rid the world of those like him, even as she secretly worries her father will return.”

The cast of Marvel’s ‘Helstrom’ includes Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, June Carryl, and other actors.

Other actors included in this cast are Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, June Carryl, Ariana Guerra, and Alain Uy. This series premieres exclusively on the streaming platform, Hulu.

“Marvel Television is thrilled to have such an amazing cast that enriches Paul’s fantastic writing,” Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb said, according to Marvel. “The ensemble is the perfect way to bring our audience into our Adventure into Fear franchise causing delicious nightmares of what’s to come!”

Unlike Marvel television series’ Loki, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Hawkeye, this series will only be available for streaming on Hulu. (Other television shows made in conjunction with Disney will be available on their streaming platform, Disney Plus.) Presumably, the characters of Marvel’s Helstrom will not be connected to the Avengers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Although there is no official premiere date, Marvel’s Helstrom debuts sometime in 2020. Until then, fans can binge-watch movies like Avengers: Infinity War and The Ant-Man and The Wasp on Netflix.
