Mark Millar to Helm the F*@K Out of Fox's Marvel Adaptations

The famed comic writer will be a creative consultant for movies such as X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fantastic Four


If there's one thing that Mark Millar knows how to do, it's how to use comics to make movies.  The famed writer of movie pitches miniseries such as Wanted, Kick-Ass and Supercrooks, Millar is now being called upon to consult 20th Century Fox with its group of Marvel movies.  Millar was announced as a creative consultant for Fox's Marvel movies, which include the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises. 

Millar is a proven success in Hollywood, where most of his Millarworld comics have been eagerly snatched up by various studios.  Fox, meanwhile, is looking to secure its remaining superhero franchises, having recently lost its Daredevil franchise.  While the company successfully rebooted its X-Men franchise with X-Men: First Class, it's looking to successfully revitalize the Fantastic Four, having killed it with two largely-reviled movies.

So does this mean that we'll see more of Millar's patented gore and EXTREME! violence make its way into Fox's movies?  Probably not, but you can never be too sure.  However, the move did give Millar an interesting out from his declaration that he was done with corporate-owned comics.  After all, blockbuster movies starring corporate superheroes aren't comics, are they?
