I am getting conflicting reports on who Marvel wants to direct their upcoming film Runaways. Here are a few articles I found talking about both Joss Whedon & Peter Sollett who are in negotiations..So we will see who gets it
This article comes to us from MTV:
“The Avengers” isn’t the only Marvel Studios project that Joss Whedon is currently linked to — based on one report, it appears that the “Astonishing X-Men” writer could run away with the big-screen adaptation of “Runaways.”
But Whedon isn’t the only leading contender, as Deadline offers the conflicting report that “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” director Peter Sollett is in negotiations to direct the superhero project.
“Runaways” focuses on an unlikely alliance forged between several youngsters after they learn that their parents are the founding members of a super villain group. Once the discovery is made, the kids — sorceress Nico Minoru, arrogant Chase Stein, alien Karolina Dean, mutant Molly Hayes, raptor-handler Gertie Yorkes and brilliant Alex Wilder — run away together, only to find themselves pursued by their parents and other super-powered individuals.
io9 is reporting that Marvel wants Peter 🙂
Sounds like the Runaways comic might actually get immortalized on the big screen, since Marvel is finally looking at a director. The spawn-of-supervillains epic has the makings of a high-energy super-powered teen action flick, with an angsty John Hughes twist.
According to Deadline Marvel wants Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist director, Peter Sollett, to adapt the tortured but amazing Runaways graphic novels. Which sounds like a good fit, since Sollett has experience telling the stories of teenagers in a realistic fashion.
Brian K. Vaughn’s Runaways series follows the children of a super-powered crime ring that has total control over L.A. Ashamed of their parents’ evil ways, the kids run away from home before eventually confronting their parents. But even this confrontation doesn’t free the teens from living in the shadows of their parents’ mistakes.

Either way I think it is going to be a good movie both Directors are great but Joss is by far my favorite ever since Firefly. Which reminds me they need to bring back Firefly!
