Recently, Marvel sent out a screener of the first two episodes for their Runaways TV show. Fans of the cult classic comic have waited years for a moving adaption in any form, and for them, there’s a lot riding on this. Will this adaption reach the heights of Daredevil or the lows of The Inhumans? (Yeah, we know that’s not even out yet, but at this point, being good is unlikely).
The tweets are out from the reviewers….and they all liked it! Donya Abramo said “So, I’ve seen the first two #Runaways episodes – just had to check it was okay to say. And guys? I loved them. Beyond words.” James Viscardi said “Got to watch the first two episodes of #Runaways and it’s going to be your new favorite #Marvel TV show for sure.”
Caleb Williams called Runaways “a great teenage mystery show much like CW’s Riverdale” and added “Gert is hands down going to be everyones favorite” (good, because there was a risk she could be preachy). Oliver Sava’s tweet declared “the spirit of the comic is alive and well” but warned of “significant changes.” Uh-oh, what kind?
We’re not sure what changes he means, but the bottom line is, there isn’t a negative reaction take from anyone. We’re hoping the full reviews in two months are as kind. Runaways premieres on Hulu November 21.
