    For Hulu? Very interesting, though I do wonder why not Netflix or Freeform but I guess they don't have to put all their eggs in one basket. It's also interesting to see Schwartz involved. The last time he tried doing something with Marvel characters was when he tried Young X-Men.

    I wonder if this will be another MCU connected series, if it gets made.

    Yeah, after all the attempts to get a live-action adaption off the ground, it's awesome to finally see it going forward, even if it's going to be stuck on Hulu :sweat:.

    That said, I am excited for this adaption and how they're going to handle it. Definitely looking forward to seeing who they cast for the kids and The Pride :cool:.

    And, if this ends up being in the MCU, I'm especially curious to see how they might handle Victor and Xavin if they ever end up bringing them in :ack:.

    Well, one thing I found odd even awkward -- aren't Netflix and Hulu well... business rivals?

    Well, with Hulu becoming subscription only...it seems they're heading in that direction :sweat:.

    When I heard the original Runaways movie was scraped in place of the Avengers movie, I expected it to re-surface as a TV show, so I'm not surprised. That being said, I'm surprised Hulu is involved.

    I don't have the money to start another subscription so I might skip this show only for that reason unfortunately. :( If only it was on Netflix as well.

    And that is interesting timing to announce the show when Hulu is making that change. Fans are going to have to make a decision on how they're going to watch all these shows that require subscriptions. I know some people are waiting for the Netflix Marvel shows to come on Blu-ray so they don't have to get a Netflix account.

    Must have been 8 years they've been trying to do something with Runaways.

    I am part of that group of people. While slowly reading some spoilers here and there.

    I know a LOT of people who have waited years for a Runaways adaption, so I'm happy for them. But ugh, I hate Hulu.

    Nice to see Marvel make TV series of Runaways, and better for Hulu :D.

    I noticed in this article, it's stated Hulu only ordered a pilot and full season script. The series hasn't been greenlit yet.

    Well, hopefully they're a little less trigger happy then ABC :sweat:.

    Though Runaways is a pretty strong concept and book, so if they can adapt it well, I think it's a lock ;).

    Can someone tell me what's everyone's problem with hulu, I don't know much about it so can someone enlighten me? From the looks of things it's seems to me that hulu is same thing as Netflix just with more variety and shows commercials.

    Yeah I think its also nice to see Marvel want to expand outside of Netflix as well.

    Tamara Becher, one of the writers for Netflix's Iron Fist, implied she's started work on Runaways today.

    Hmm...wonder if it's deliberate, having show writers move around, or just a happy coincidence :sweat:?

    After rereading the older comics this is probably now the Marvel adaption I'm looking forward to most now.
