No Hulu “Runaways” Pilot Or Updates At Comic Con
July 18, 2017 - Marvel, TV,
Launched in 2003 the on-and-off series has a strong following
It seems like the perfect place and time to announce a comic book based series, but sadly there will be no Runaways pilot or any updates at Comic Con this year. Hulu confirmed this weekend that the Marvel series about gifted runaway teenagers isn’t quite ready. I followed up to see if there was any timeline for another announcement but have yet to hear back.
Certainly there will be plenty of other Marvel television shows to be enjoyed at Comic Con (which starts Wednesday) but I had big hopes to hear more about this fan favorite story. Since its announcement back in August there has been little to go on. The Twitter account hasn’t been much help either.
What we do know about the Runaways
The cast for Runaways was set and announced back in February, and includes Gregg Sulkinis as Chase Stein. Also noted were the showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage from The O.C. fame. Runaways will be released on Hulu sometime in 2018.
