Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ live-action adaptation in development for Hulu


How about some Runaways live-action adaptation? I haven’t read the series in forever, but I distinctly remember fucking loving it back in the day.


Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s “Runaways” are heading to Hulu. Deadlinereports “Gossip Girl” creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have teamed with Marvel Television to bring the comic book series to live-action in a brand new series.

According to the report, “‘Marvel’s Runaways’ will tell the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe — their parents.”

“I’m a long-time fan of ‘Runaways’ and couldn’t be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian’s characters to life,” Schwartz shared.

“We’ve known the ‘Runaways” story would make great television,” added Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb, “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.”

Loeb will executive produce the series alongside Schwartz and Savage, who developed the idea with Marvel Television executives over the last year. The show will be part of Schwartz and Savage’s studio Fake Empire and falls under a deal they made with ABC Studios, which is also home to Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

No release date has been announced for “Marvel’s Runaways.”
