News that many were pretty sure was a sure shot is that Marvel’s Runaways would be returning for a third season after a great second season. Marvel’s Runaways looks set to return to Hulu for a third season after the digital platform’s content chief Craig Erwich praised the performance of the comic book adaptation at the Television Critics Association on Monday.
“We’re really happy with the performance of Runaways, both creatively and in terms of its performance, and we’ll have an announcement shortly,” Erwich said, while speaking Monday during Hulu’s session at TCA.
The second 13-episode season of the show launched on December 21, 2018 and it was highly received and praised for its cast performances.
Now previously it was reported that potentially the upcoming Matt Reeves directed film The Batman was potentially going to be based on the Batman:Year One series. But now it seems as if that is not the case.
Today at the TCA director Matt Reeves said about his film, ““We are working on getting our draft in the next couple of weeks and things are progressing…..We have conceptual stuff going and coming into being and my head is totally in the script. In fact I’m going to be leaving right now (from the Beverly Hilton) to work on the script,” Reeves is hoping to officially begin production either next spring or early summer.
The question of course was brought up about Ben Affleck’s involvement in the film and whether or not he would still be portraying the caped crusader. Reeves said that he “is still involved”. The Batman is said to be a dark film in the vein of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight being a “noir-driven in which Batman is investigating a particular case that takes us out into the world of Gotham” yet will still maintain its own identity.
It looks as if we are going to get more “Fenris” on our television screens as Fox has officially renewed it’s hit X-men based series, “The Gifted” for a second season. Fox made the announcement Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
The series is set in the “X-Men” universe and follows a suburban couple, The Struckers who discover that their teenage children are mutants with special powers. They are forced to flee from the government while connecting with an underground network of mutants while fighting to survive. Fox is preparing to air its two-hour first season finale on Jan. 15.
It stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, and Coby Bell.
The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television. Matt Nix, Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory serve as executive producers. Nix, who serves as the series’ showrunner, wrote the pilot, which was directed by Singer.
