Ellen Page is enrolling in "The Umbrella Academy".

Page's character, Vanya, will reportedly be the black sheep of the Hargreeves family.

Together, they work to solve their father's mysterious death while coming apart at the seams because of their divergent personalities and abilities.

The Umbrella Academy: The Apocalypse Suite debuted in 2007, which was followed the next year by the miniseries The Umbrella Academy: Dallas. Vanya is Reginald's adopted daughter, and doesn't seem to have any superpowers of her own.

According to Nylon, 'Vanya is a wallflower who has a hard time understanding her place in the family since everyone has abilities that she lacks. To sweeten the deal, Fargo's Steve Blackman will be serving as executive producer and showrunner, working from a pilot script by Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist). No date has been set for release as of yet, but Netflix is said to be eyeing the 2018 calender. "We're excited to see this world and introduce these unforgettable heroes to Netflix members around the globe".
