Comic writer Mark Millar revealed recently that the planned reboot of the Fantastic Four will take place in the same universe as the X-Men films do. He hints at character cross-overs. Come inside to read all of what he had to say about it!
20th Century Fox, who still holds onto the rights to key Marvel Comics properties announced today that they've hired Mark Millar (a celebrated comic creator) to be the new creative consultant behind their upcoming Marvel related adapatations. Perhaps this is their own effort to unify the various properties they have into one 'universe'.
The Hollywood Reporter reveal that Universal are in negotiations to bring the Mark Millar and Tony Harris comic book series to the big screen. Hit the jump for further details.
Last week we reported to you on this new Batman 3 rumor going around that Killer Croc might be the villain of the film. The rumor got started by people taking twitter posts from Mark Millar (who claims to know who the villain is) and drawing their own conclusions based on that. Then just recently there have been reports coming from Deadline that Tom Hardy (who worked with Nolan on Inception) has been cast in some mystery lead role for Batman 3. It didn't take long for some to put the two rumors together and Millar is stirring the pot on it even more.
Mark Millar's comic books have proven to be treats for fans in the movie theaters. His next project comic to be adapted to film (Nemesis), this time with director Tony Scott, is getting a huge budget thanks to 20th Century Fox. I like Mark Millar. I've been a pretty loyal fan of his comics and have enjoyed the forays into the film world. If you've ever read his comics they really feel designed for the big screen. Wanted wasn't as terrible as everyone said, but Kick-Ass wasn't as good as it could have been either. Regardless the fans love him, and so Hollywood is going to continue to throw money his way.
