Marvel Delays Its “Runaways” Feature

Though it hasn’t cancelled the project as rumoured, Marvel Studios certainly has slowed down its plans for the teenage superhero franchise “Runaways” reports Deadline.

Marvel had reportedly become uneasy about moving ahead with the project after “Kick-Ass” under performed at the box office, though the actual reason is apparently the studio has too much on its schedule right now and plans to take their time with the project to do it right.

The story revolves around a group of high schoolers that discover their parents are super villains and band together to use their super powers for good.

Peter Sollett (“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) is still attached to direct but will likely take other projects first. Brian K. Vaughan (“Lost”) penned the script.
