Runaways


Several sites are reporting today that Peter Sollett, director of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Raising Victor Vargas is in the running for taking the helm of Marvel's Runaways adaptation. Personally i can't see this happening. Sollett is definitely a talented Director and i admire both the feature films he's made so far, but he's a bit too much of a left-field choice in my eyes. Joss Whedon also has his name up for consideration, and seeing as he's written for the comics and handled a larger budget before, he seems like the more appealing option.
Marvel have made it known that they do like to pick the slightly less obvious option when choosing a director (Kenneth Branagh for Thor being a prime example), so maybe there's some weight to this. Only time will tell.
