Since many of the Marvel Comic Book properties are still under contract to 20th Century Fox, Marvel has made smart move. Much like Joss Whedon is in charge of the Avengers Movie Universe, Marvel has placed comic book scribe Mark Millar in charge of the Fox Marvel Movie Universe.
This means Millar will now oversee The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fantastic Four.
Mark Millar released the following the statement:
“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.
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”.
Does Millar overseeing these properties make you feel excited or nervous Maniacs?
Thanks to ElBaz13 for the submission.
