Read here below for our top five takeaways from the Marvel’s Runaways panel and premiere!
Marvel has no shortage of properties they can use to adapt for the big or small screen. Considering how popular television has become, it’s no surprise that the studio would want to have a piece of that market. Now we are getting our first look at two of their newest shows. The Inhumans, which was once a film that has now become a TV series, though that doesn’t mean it won’t be getting the film treatment as its pilot will debut in IMAX theaters. Runaways is the second show. While it won’t have anything as grand as The Inhumans, the show has already been picked up by Hulu, so that’s a very good sign. Check out the first images and a teaser for The Inhumans, below.
Runaways was first introduced to the Marvel universe by comic creator Brian K. Vaughan (Saga) in the summer of 2003. The story follows a group of teenagers who discover that their parents are evil masterminds.
For years now, particularly since the creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an adaptation of the series for both film and television have been rumored; however, nothing has come to fruition — that is, until now.
I know, “What’s a “put pilot”? It’s not a commonly known term, but it means that a network guarantees that a TV pilot will get air time, or else they’ll owe lots and lots of money. So that’s good news for HorrorstÃ¶r, a novel written by Grady Hendrix about a haunted furniture super store that’s just been given a put pilot commitment from FOX. So, it’s pretty much guaranteed it will air on TV.
