Mark Millar Talks X-FORCE, BATMAN/SUPERMAN Movie And JUSTICE LEAGUE
While discussing 20th Century Fox's X-Force adaptation and getting Jeff Wadlow (Kick Ass 2) to write and possibly direct, Mark Millar also shares his thoughts on Warner Bros.' planned Superman/Batman team-up film as well as introducing other DC characters on the big screen.
While answering questions asked by various Twitter users (via Total Film), comic book writer and 20th Century Fox creative consultant Mark Millar talks about Warner Bros.' planned Batman/Superman team-up film. He thinks it's a brilliant move that isn't being rushed at all, and says that it should be just as successful as a Justice League movie would (if not more so) if that would've been the next DC adaptation. Millar also talks about the planned X-Force movie and getting Kick Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow on board. For updates on Nemesis, The Secret Service and more, click the source link below.
On Warner Bros.' Batman/Superman Movie, Whether It's Being Rushed And Other DC Movies:
"No, not at all; I actually think it’s a brilliant idea. Justice League would have been a really weird move for them. Could you imagine doing The Avengers without doing Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and everything beforehand?
"With the Justice League, you’re talking about seven different dimensions that these characters are coming from. The Martian Manhunter comes from Mars, with Wonder Woman you have to explain the Paradise Islands populated by Amazons, the Green Lantern you’ll have to reintroduce because nobody saw the first film and then there’s the Flash, and Aquaman and the undersea kingdom of Atlantis – how on earth do you possibly explain that? That’s seven movies that you’ve somehow got to explain in the first act of a JLA film, so I think they’re really wise in what they’re doing, by just keeping with the two that everybody knows.
"I actually don’t think that a Justice League movie would have done any more business than Superman Vs Batman. At the moment, nobody really cares about those other characters anyway yet."
On X-Force And Hiring Jeff Wadlow To Write And Potentially Direct:
"Jeff made a really entertaining film with Kick-Ass 2, I was really happy. And he had a difficult film to follow because expectations were high. He had a really tough gig – it’s not like coming in and doing Green Lantern 2 or something but he did a really good job on it and I said to the guys on X-Force: ‘get him while he’s relatively cheap.’ Because after this summer, everybody’s going to want him. Again, I can’t really say without giving it away so I’ll leave that one for Jeff because that’s probably an announcement we’ll make next year because they’ve got a cool take on it. That was my first question to Jeff when I suggested X-Force to him. I said: ‘What would you bring to the table because you’re going to be doing something that already has an established fan base', so what’s the point in spending half a billion on it if there’s no good rationale for the project?’"
