[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6189:]]Mark Millar is the creative consultant for Fox Studios and their line up of Marvel movies which includes the X-Men, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four films.
As Millar recently came on board, and Fox already had new projects in development, he hasn’t been that involved with the X-Men and Wolverine movies.
Well, all that’s about to change as Mark Millar gave an update on his forums stating now that Kick-Ass 2 is about done and that he’s been in contact with X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer, he can concentrate on the Fox Marvel movies, and also said that a big announcements are coming.
Millar also said that X-Men: Days of Future Past is potentially the biggest and most ambitious superhero movie ever made.
“Just Had A Great Chat With Bryan Singer”
What an immensely nice dude that guy is!
As a producer on Kick-Ass 2, I’ve not been in LA since Sept when Fox flew me out to sit with the insanely-clever writer Simon Kinberg and the Fox execs to chat X-men back when Matthew was still directing. But Kick-Ass 2 is pretty much done now and so my beady-eye can move back towards the Fox stuff again. There’s a very exciting announcement you guys will hear about over the coming months (if not before), but the most immediate things the office is talking about are Days of Future Past and The Wolverine, both of which I’m absolutely aching to see. I saw the first 10 mins of Jim’s Wolvie when I was out there last September. I’m out again next month and will have the pleasure of seeing a very near final cut too.
Days of Future-Past is potentially the biggest and most ambitious superhero movie ever made. I’ve seen this coming together in various stages, but now they’re only weeks away from shooting it’s really catching fire. I’ll catch Bry in person before he heads to Montreal next month when I’m seeing Wolvie and we can chat a little more about the Fox grand plan. A very, very exciting time to be into this stuff, especially when you consider that the brilliant Josh Trank has Fantastic Four lined up for 2015. You don’t know how lucky you are – when I was a kid Nicholas Hammond was playing Spidey on a visible wire!!
The Wolverine comes out July 13, 2013.
Kick-Ass 2 has an August 6, 2013 release.
X-Men: Days of Future Past has a July 18, 2014 release.
