Remember the Runaways movie that was in works? Me neither. Apparently it was as far along as a script by Iron Man 3’s co-writer Drew Pearce. However, since this is now a post-Avengers world, the project has been put on the shelf. 

The Hollywood Reporter had the story (read it here). "We were really close to being made, and then this movie started to happen called The Avengers," explained Drew Pearce. "Oddly, it pulled focus from the unheard-of brand Runaways, and it really did kind of consume the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's there -- maybe it'll be a Phase Three movie. I really hope so. I'm really proud of it and I think it'll be a brilliant film, but I think it all depends what Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel, his master plan is."

A movie based on Brian K. Vaughan's 2003 comic sounds like a great idea. Maybe it will be a part of Marvel’s Phase Three plan. Personally, I would rather see a series on FX or a HBO based on the comics. It will be interesting to see what Disney and Marvel do with the project.
