Marvel To Adapt "Runaways"!

So it looks like “Runaways” is getting the big screen treatment. Honestly, I couldn’t be more excited. If you’ve read the first volume of “Runaways”, you know its perfectly laid out for one hell of an entertaining movie.

For those of you who have been under a rock. “Runaways” is the tale of a group of children who learn that their parents are members of The Pride, a group of super-villains. Upon learning this and witnessing them slaying an innocent girl in a ritual sacrifice, the group runs away and learns that many of them are far more than human.

So far, there has been no casting decision, but the script is being penned by series co-creator Brian K. Vaughn. The film also has no set release date, thus placing it in a similar limbo as the company’s announced “Ant-Man” movie (though I’m sure the odds of a “Runaways” movie are much, much higher).

The “Runaways” title is in its second volume and is currently being published monthly by Marvel Comics. The first volume ran for 18 issues and is available in 3 separate trades, titled “The Runaways Vol. 1: Pride & Joy”, “The Runaways Vol. 2: Teenage Wasteland”, and “The Runaways Vol. 3: The Good Die Young”. You can also collected the entire 18 issue first volume in the hardcover “The Runaways: Vol. 1”.
