With the movies, Netflix Shows and Agents of SHIELD all seemingly unstoppable, it’s hardly a surprise to know that pretty much everyone wants in on the MCU.

The latest name added to the list is Hulu who are bringing Runaways to the small screen with the help of Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage, Marvel Television and ABC Signature.

At the minute the order is for a pilot but a full-season is definitely the hope.

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.

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

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

Jeph Loeb, EP and Head of Marvel Television said of the show: “We’ve known the Runaways‘ story would make great television and being lucky enough to have Josh and Stephanie write and produce the series is nothing short of remarkable.”

It’s certainly a fresh direction for Marvel… and one we’re looking forward to seeing. We hope it is part of the MCU but can stand as its own thing too.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
