    I’ll believe this when I see it. Runaways has been on and off since Iron Man 1. Not too enthused about Hulu, but I guess Netflix can only do so much.

    LMAO, waits for the Marvel Zombies to say how much this will be a hit. It’s hilarious to le, how Marvel can’t seem to get anything on REAL TV, which is where most people watch their content. These obscure outlets aren’t raking in viewers. Just ask Powers.
