RUNAWAYS movie in the works with Vaughan

RunavaughanThe Hollywood Reporter reports that a movie based on RUNAWAYS may be coming:

Brian K. Vaughan, who co-created the series with artist Adrian Alphona, is writing the adaptation, for which Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will act as producer. Vaughan is also a co-producer and writer on ABC’s “Lost.”

As opposed to other Marvel characters getting the silver screen treatment, such as the Hulk and Spider-Man — who have been around since the 1960s and are pop-culture fixtures — the heroes in “Runaways” are relatively new, with the comic series launching in 2002.


Yes, that’s exactly right. Bringing RUNAWAYS to the screen would be a huge boost for Vaughan, as well as Marvel’s ability to adapt newer characters to marketable status.

    Go, Brian! That’s fantastic news.

  2. I’ve been squealing with delight about this elsewhere. I’ve been longing for a Runaways movie ever since issue #1, and having BKV write it is a dream come true.

  3. :D:D:DD:D:D:D:D:D…. I CAN WAIT NO LONGER!

  4. If they mess up Gert or Molly I’m gonna have to go to Hollywood and start angrily flipping tables over.

  5. I was so excited when I heard about the movie. I’m a huge fan (I think Chase is the best :D) and I can’t wait for this. It’ll be pretty hard to pin down a good Gert and Molly, as K. said. I can’t wait to see what kind of arch they put in the film and if they include Alex’s betrayal.

    This is cool, i have recently gotten into the comics and i am waiting for Vol.3, but if they need an actor for Alex, sign me up!
