Regarding casting, CBM's JoshW pointed out that Allie Grant, who is best known for her role in the TV series Weeds, is offhandedly listed "seen opposite Michael Shannon in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Runaways" in her biography.
Based on the cult favorite comic book about the children of super villains who try to use their evil powers for heroic purposes, the story follows a group of teenagers who discover that their parents, an amalgam of mob bosses, time-travelers, dark wizards, mad scientists, alien invaders and telepathic mutants, are part of an evil crime syndicate. The series is known for it's solid characterization and its ability to tackle dark elements while maintaining a comedic tone.

The film will be distributed under Marvel's pre-Disney deal with Paramount Pictures. And regarding whether or not the Runaways will be apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe set up with Iron Man, the studios' President stated that without as many references as the big-budget films, it could happen. Announced back in May, British writer, Drew Pearce would be penning a draft for the film.
