That’s right – comic book writer and owner of Millarworld Mark Millar is set to be consultant to Fox’s Marvel movies. Check it out!
Despite what I think of the man, I love his work. His run on The Ultimates, Old Man Logan, The Fantastic Four, Wanted, Supercrook, Civil War, Kick-Ass and Nemesis pretty much confirms that. They were good comic books. Real good.
Therefore, to learn he’s being consulted on the remaining Marvel movies Fox maintains the rights to is a good thing to me.
Well currently, Fox has X-Men: Days of Future Past (the X-Men: First Class sequel) and the Fantastic Four reboot in the works and I think he’s much needed for the latter after the disaster of the previous movies.
“As someone who has spent his entire life obsessed with both comic-books and movies, this is essentially my dream gig as it’s a unique combination of both,” said Millar.
“I spent ten years working at Marvel and am really happy with the work I did on the comic side of things so the idea of working with these characters now in a brand new medium is enormously exciting for me. I really like the Fox team, love this bold new direction they have for their franchises and am proud to be working alongside some of modern cinema’s biggest talents. James Mangold is incredible, Matthew Vaughn’s one of my closest pals and Josh Trank gave us, in my opinion, one of the greatest superhero movies of the last decade with ‘Chronicle.’ The invitation to join this crew was maybe the coolest phone-call I’ve ever had.”
Is Millar the right man for the job? Let me know what you think in the comnments section below – it’d be awesome to hear your opinion!
