Mark Millar Talks More About Creating A Cohesive Marvel Universe For 20th Century Fox
Mark Millar (20th Century Fox's Creative Consultant on their upcoming Marvel slate) talks more here about his 3/4 year plan to build a cohesive comic book universe for the studio, teasing possible spin-off's and dismissing the need for any unnecessary cameos. Check it out!
Talking to Empire Online in their latest podcast, Mark Millar has let slip a few more details about his role as Fox's Creative Consultant. The only films we know about right now are James Mangold's The Wolverine,
Matthew Vaughn Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past and Josh Trank's Fantastic Four. However, it sounds as if there are possibly a few other films being planned as a part of Millar's 3/4 year plan. You can listen to the whole interview by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page, but be sure to sound off with your thoughts on the comments below in the usual place!
"Fox are thinking, 'We're sitting on some really awesome things here. There is another side of the Marvel Universe. Let's try and get some cohesiveness going.' So they brought me in to oversee that really. To meet with the writers and directors to suggest new ways we could take this stuff and new properties that could spin out of it."
"The X-Men feels like a universe by itself; there's so many characters and so many great potential spin-off characters. They asked me to come in and work out a plan, so unfortunately at this point I can't get too specific. I DO have a three to four year plan of where things could go, but you know, I'll be working with guys like Matthew and Josh Trank (the new director of 'Fantastic Four') and just figuring out how everything can work together and not contradict each other."
"But I also don't want to make it too much of a mess either, with everyone showing up in everyone else's films. What my dream is, as a fan, is that when you go and see any Marvel movie that it feels as if they're all taking place in the one universe like in the comics."
