Well, they had to be running away from something, right? Hot on the heels of casting its leads, Marvel’s Hulu Runaways prepares to embarrass them all with a cast full of “Pride”-ful parents, including Buffy breakout James Marsters, 24 and Alias alum, and a whole host of others.
Just as Marvel’s Freeform Cloak and Dagger is starting to unfurl, so too are Marvel’s Hulu Runaways ready to hit the pavement. The full cast for the new series has been announced, along with their familiar comic designations.
Luke Cage and Danny Rand have never been as high profile as they are right now; with one successful Netflix show in the can and another on the horizon, the Heroes For Hire are hotter than ever. However, things might get a little too hot in November's Power Man and Iron Fist #10 as David Walker and Sanford Greene bring back former Runaway Alex Wilder in a new story titled "Harlem Burns."
We don’t yet know if Marvel’s Hulu Runaways series will follow suit with a place in the larger MCU, but there might be at least one familiar voice behind the long-awaited adaptation. Following the initial announcement, one of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist writers has confirmed their involvement with Runaways.
It seems that at least once a year the Big Two superhero publishers push for a major relaunch of their titles with a wave of new number ones that often feature characters that haven’t had an ongoing series in a long while. The choices are sometimes baffling, but the relaunches usually result in at least a few surprise hits, like The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
Marvel is currently in the process of launching an all-new, all-different Marvel Now with characters like Foolkiller and Solo, but there are a lot of great characters that just aren't being used to their full potential. We’ve put together a list of five ideal candidates for the next big Marvel relaunch, or the next phase of the current one.
This week, as I occasionally do, I'm shifting focus to a project that's actually happening. The Runaways are getting TV series on Hulu, with a full series order and the involvement of Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. So obviously we've been thinking about the original book, and who should play those roles.
Brian K. Vaughan, Adrian Alphona and Christina Strain's Runaways has been an obvious choice for live action adaptation since it first debuted in the early 2000s. The tale of a group of teens who discover their parents are supervillains and go on the run has the potential to be a huge hit, and this week it was announced that Hulu has ordered the Marvel property to series under the supervision of the creators of Gossip Girl.
But who are The Runaways? They haven't been a team in comics for quite some time, and haven't had an ongoing series in even longer. We've put together a Crash Course to make you a Runaways expert in no-time.
Just when you thought Netflix the new premiere destination for Marvel’s TV branch, Hulu snags a few Runaways. Six, to be exact, as the long-gestating Marvel property has a full series order for the streaming service from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
For today’s question, we asked our writers; Which comics should Marvel Comics launch after Secret Wars? Marvel has been unveiling its new line-up over the past few days, with the full reveal coming on Wednesday 1 July, and what the publisher has announced thus far has shown plenty of promise, including a more diverse Avengers team and a new central role for Miles Morales in the Marvel Universe. But there's always room for more. More diversity, more originality, more weirdness.
Though the return of the original Runaways team remains high on a lot of comics fans' ultimate wishlist, the Secret Wars version --- featuring the rag-taggiest of teams of cross-universe teens --- is easily one of the most hotly anticipated titles to come out of Battleworld, thanks to the stellar creative team of Noelle Stevenson and Sanford Greene.
Nimona writer/artist Stevenson is writing the book, with Greene on pencils, but that doesn't mean we don't get to see Stevenson's take on the motley crew, which includes versions of Molly Hayes, Jubilee, Amadeus Cho, and Cloak and Dagger. Stevenson has lined up some of the crew for this variant cover for the second issue, revealed exclusively here on ComicsAlliance.
