Brian K. Vaughan was hired to write a screenplay for Marvel Studios in May 2008, based on his comic creation the Runaways.[9] In April 2010, Marvel hired Peter Sollett to direct the film,[10] and a month later Drew Pearce signed on to write a new script.[11] Development on the film was put on hold the following October,[12] and Pearce explained in September 2013 that the Runaways film had been shelved due to the success of The Avengers; the earliest the film could be made was for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[13] In October 2014, after announcing Marvel’s Phase Three films without Runaways, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said the project was “still an awesome script that exists in our script vault… In our television and future film discussions, it’s always one that we talk about, because we have a solid draft there. [But] we can’t make them all.”[14]

By August 2016, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (whose company Fake Empire Productions had an overall deal with ABC Studios) had spent a year conversing with Marvel Television (also based at ABC) about turning Runaways into a television series. That month, Marvel’s Runaways was announced from Marvel Television, ABC Signature Studios, and Fake Empire Productions, with the streaming service Hulu ordering a pilot episode and scripts for a full season. Hulu was believed to already have “an eye toward a full-season greenlight.” Schwartz and Savage wrote the pilot, and serve as showrunners on the series, as well as executive producers alongside Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Fake Empire’s Lis Rowinski produces the series,[1][15] and Vaughan serves as an executive consultant.[3] On this, Vaughan noted he “did a little consulting early in the process,” but felt the series “found the ideal ‘foster parents’ in Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage… [who] lovingly adapted [the comics] into a stylish drama that feels like contemporary Los Angeles.” He also praised the cast, crew and writers working on the series, and felt the pilot looked “like an Adrian Alphona comic”, the artist who worked with Vaughan when he created the characters.[16] In May 2017, Runaways received a series order, consisting of 10 episodes, from Hulu at their annual advertising upfront presentation.[7]
