Mark Millar Recommends Moderation in the Use of Wolverine in Movies

Fans of Wolverine may not think there is such a thing as too much of the popular mutant character, however, Mark Millar disagrees. Millar, the superhero creative consultant at Fox and award-winning comic book author, says there is a danger of oversaturating the X-Men films with Wolverine.

There is no denying that Wolverine has been the most popular mutant hero in the X-books for decades. As portrayed by Hugh Jackman, the character's extreme fan popularity has continued in the X-Men films. Aside from being the lead character in the X-Men trilogy, Jackman also starred in the solo film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, as well as having a cameo in X-Men: First Class. Jackman will be reprising the role in the upcoming film The Wolverine.  Additionally, Jackman has hinted that Wolverine will have more than another cameo in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.

However, is this too much Wolverine? Millar worries that it may be. Millar says, "You don't want to have him out there all the time, because I think if you've got him in X-Men and Wolverine movies and they're all running at the same time, it's a little bit too much but as long as you're smart with it then there's a lot of other characters to explore."

Millar has faith in the character's continuing popularity and has high praise for the upcoming The Wolverine movie. He simply cautions against a possible blacklash due to overexposure of the character.

Is there such a thing as too much Wolverine? What do you think?
