The Runaways from Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona stars the children of Marvel super villains who decide to rise up and save the world from their evil parents. Ever sense Marvel started making movies and TV The Runaways has always been a topic of conversation and rumored development. I mean, it makes perfect sense what better way to bring in the youngsters than with a young group of super powered teens taking down their parents whom are bent on world domination. What’s surprising about this announcement though is were The Runaway’s finally ended up. Unfortunately, its not going to be on the big screen, and it appears current Marvel media masters ABC and Netflix both passed. So Marvel decided to take over another media giant as The Runaways head to HULU.
We have little details on the show outside of the announcement of show runners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, but we are still very excited to see the super hero teens finally make the leap from the comic book page. For all the details from Marvel check out the press release below.
Marvel Television will be bringing the fan-favorite and ground breaking comic book series, “Runaways,” to popular streaming service, Hulu.
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents.
“We’ve known the Runaways’ story would make great television,” said Jeph Loeb, EP and Head of Marvel Television, “and being lucky enough to have Josh and Stephanie — who have time and again created shows that speak so genuinely to this exact audience — write and produce the series is nothing short of remarkable.”
“I’m a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn’t be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian’s characters to life,” said Schwartz.
Adds Savage, “Josh and I can’t wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu.”
