Cinemax is developing a TV adaptation of Marvel Comics’ Scarlet, a comic book series that was created by Brian Michael Bendis and ran irregularly from 2010 to 2016. Brian is known as one of the main architects of the Ultimate Marvel and as someone who was responsible for 2004’s New Avengers. He is also one of the co-creators of the Jessica Jones character and the long-running comic book series Powers.
Scarlet Rue is a young rebel from Portland, Oregon who is credited as starting a new revolution in the United States. Scarlet has been often compared to The Punisher, and is known for graphic violence, complex emotions, and mainly adult themes.
Scarlet would be Cinemax’s second comic book-based adaptation, following the success of Robert Kirkman’s Outcast TV series.


Marvel Studios has enjoyed great success in its partnership with Netflix to produce original shows such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher. Now, Marvel is going to a different streaming competitor – Hulu – to develop a brand-new superhero TV series: Runaways.
This Marvel/Hulu television show will feature the characters Alex Wilder, Nico Minoru, Karolina Dean, Gert Yorkes, Chase Stein, and Molly Hernandez, and seems to be completely different from the Marvel/Netflix tone since it will tell mainly a lighthearted, teenage-friendly story about kids who find out that their parents are evil.
Like Inhumans, Marvel’s Runaways was originally meant to be a film, but those plans were scrapped in 2013. The TV show’s first season will consist of 10 episodes that are scheduled for a winter of 2017/2018 premiere.
