JOSS WHEDON TO DIRECT MARVEL'S "THE RUNAWAYS"?

According to "MovieWeb" it seems that beside the super-hero flick "The Avengers" Marvel Studios has also started gathering cast and crew for their upcoming film "The Runaways" which is scheduled for 2011. Judging from the new rumors two directors are in the run to helm the comic adaptation: Peter Sollett (pretty much an unknown director) and Joss Whedon could take the helm of the high profile project.
"The Runaways" follows a group of teenagers who find that some family secrets are bigger than others when they discover their parents are actually super-villains creating a criminal group of mob bosses, time-travelers, dark wizards, mad scientists, alien invaders and telepathic mutants. Running away from their homes, the teens band together and begin a journey of discovery, both of their parents' origins and of their own inherited powers, while trying to make up for the evil done by their folks.

  2. Joss Whedon could be a good choice for director of Runaways.

    I've read this comics a while ago after I've heard a good things about it. And I wasn't disappointed.

    Runaways could make an interesting movie. Both to comic book fans, and to those who don't like/read superhero comics.
