No date has been set for release as of yet, but Netflix is said to be eyeing the 2018 calender.

The Umbrella Academy comic series from My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way is about to become another entry into Netflix's seemingly bottomless well of original programming.

Page's character, Vanya, will reportedly be the black sheep of the Hargreeves family. Gerard Way will serve as co-executive producer.

Steve Blackman (FX's Fargo) will serve as The Umbrella Academy's showrunner, with Jeremy Slater (Fox's The Exorcist) penning the pilot script. Variety first announced an Umbrella Academy adaptation several months ago.

Ellen Page says director Brett Ratner "outed" her as a teen
McKayla Maroney, who won two medals at the 2012 Games as Raisman's teammate, said last month she was molested for years by Nassar. When I was sixteen a director took me to dinner (a professional obligation and a very common one).

Umbrella Academy is based on a series of graphic novels published by Dark Horse Comics. Expect plenty of arguments and drama, along with fiery outbursts thanks to the extraordinary abilities her family has.

The comic follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes known as the Umbrella Academy as they struggle to work together to solve the mystery of their father's death. He started creating "The Umbrella Academy" during downtime on the band's tours. Due to her lack of abilities, she's insecure about where she fits within the family and searches for her place in the world. These aren't the usual superheroes, and this series will embrace the singular tone of the graphic novels - dark yet humorous, supernatural yet grounded in reality.

For Netflix, "Umbrella Academy" marks the latest series in the comic book genre, following a slew of Marvel series, including "Daredevil", "Jessica Jones", "Iron Fist", "Luke Cafe", "The Defenders", and "The Punisher".
