RUNAWAYS: Will It Be Connected To The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Will the upcoming Marvel and Hulu's upcoming Runaways be part of the larger MCU? Jeph Loeb answers this and more in new interview!

At the Television Critics Association press tour for Marvel's new Runaways series, head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb spoke about how this new show fits into the larger cinematic universe.

Loeb said "Runaways lives in the same world" as all the other Marvel properties, from the movies to the Netflix shows. "How it's connected and where it's connected and what it's connected to remains to be seen. Right now what we're trying to do is tell the great story that Josh [Schwartz, Chuck and The O.C.] and Stephanie [Savage, The O.C.] have grafted that's based an award-winning series by Brian K. Vaughan, who's also on board. It has an amazing cast and that's where it fits in."



He also touched briefly on the shows appeal to young adults. "I think the show much more lives in a world where if you're a teenager -- and everything's connected by social media and everything's connected in a certain way -- would you be following Iron Man or would you be following someone who was more your age? So the fact that they found each other and are going through this mystery together, it becomes the moment that they're concerned about and not what Captain America is doing on a Friday." 

Runaways will premier November 21st on Hulu.
