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.

    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.

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

    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.
