Marvel's Runaways

Quote:
Hulu is getting into the Marvel business with an order to Runaways, a drama series based on the fan-favorite Marvel Comics books. It comes from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage, Marvel Television and ABC Signature. The order is for a pilot plus additional scripts with an eye toward a full-season greenlight.

Created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, the Runaways comics feature a group of teenagers who discover that their parents are part of an evil crime organization.

Written by Schwartz and Savage, 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,” said Schwartz.

Added Savage, “Josh and I can’t wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu.”

The book series debuted in 2003 and is still in print with a short break in later 2004 when it was canceled but brought back by popular demand.

The TV adaptation stems from a series of conversations Schwartz and Savage had with executives from Marvel TV over the past year. The project was developed under the overall deal Schwartz and Savage’s Fake Empire had at ABC Studios where Marvel TV also is based.

Coming of age is familiar territory for Schwartz and Savage who created together the successful TV series adaptation of another book series, Gossip Girl. Schwartz also created the coming-of-age Fox drama The O.C.

“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.”

Schwartz and Savage will serve as showrunners of Marvel’s Runaways, which they executive produce with Loeb (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) and Jim Chory (Marvel’s Daredevil) Fake Empire’s Lis Rowinski will produce as well.

Fake Empire is repped by WME. Schwartz also is with Mikkel Bondesen.

Marvel TV has Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC and several series on Netflix, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher as well as The Defenders.

I love Runaways and I'm glad it's being adapted to the screen. My only concern is the budget. Hulu hasn't tackled a property like this yet so I'm not sure what kind of money they'll throw at it.

This is cool and all, but I'm hoping its a hit so they can give us Young Avengers down the line.

I do love the characters, just not the Runaways stories as much. Molly and Gert are outstanding.

I don't understand the need to change molly's name from hayes to hernandez. If they had just casted someone who was mixed race and kept the last name it wouldn't have been a big deal. Plus if they were worried about diversity Latin American Victor Mancha would join the cast in season 2

My one gripe with the casting is that they Molly looks older than Alex.

I have no idea what to make of this. I guess it looks better than the other one they're making with the white chick and black dude? I have no idea.

Cloak and Dagger?
Yeah, this one'll probably be better if that's the case. These characters have more personality.

Does anyone else think we're approaching a tipping point in all of this with Marvel TV? Agents of SHIELD, 6 Netflix series, Cloak and Dagger, Inhumans AND this?

Yep. I think one symptom is the fact that it's spread across... four channels/sites now?

Hulu, Netflix, ABC, and... not sure what Cloak and Dagger is going to air on. But who has the time or interest to get all of those services for a bunch of shows?

Although, Netflix does have the ABC stuff available, a season behind...

Which isn't really all that dissimilar to reading the comics.

True, true!

Except we don't have an on-screen glut of crossovers. Yet.

Wait for it....waaaaaaaiiiiiit for iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

Not that I'm complaining. I mean, I will watch Matt Murdock's smug, punchable face just about anywhere.
And who wouldn't love to see Molly square off against The Punisher again?

You've got a point there.

And how about an influx of new "characters" of different variety, included for the sake of being PC?
Man, that would be horrible.

I don't even know who the Runaways are, I like to consider myself a somewhat knowledgeable Marvel geek.
