According to Latino-Review, 20th Century Fox have won the right to upcoming Image Comics series Starlight. It joins previous Millarworld adaptations Wanted, Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2. Nemesis is also at Fix, while The Secret Service is currently being shot by X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn. Check out the Tweets below for details and the cover art/solicitation text for issue #1.












So much for retirement! This March, meet Duke McQueen, a man who has long since settled down and left his days of saving the Universe and operating as the space hero everyone depended on—at least that’s what he thought. His wife long passed and his kids off embarking on their own adventures, Duke lives a quiet, solitary life until he receives an unexpected call from a distant world, calling him to action one last time. This March begins an all new ongoing series with STARLIGHT #1, Mark Millar (JUPITER’S LEGACY, KICK-ASS, WANTED) and Goran Parlov's (Fury MAX: My War Gone By, Punisher MAX) much-anticipated first salvo in an intergalactic adventure that will have fans leaning in as they read.

Aw sh@t. Hope this doesn't turn out like the FF movies.

This movie's already [frick]ed.

Millar has leverage with Fox now that he's working more closely with them... But they're just spouting out shit scripts. He praises the writers adaptations of his books like they're golden and it's getting annoying. Remember when he said Jeff Wadlow's take on Kick-Ass 2 was "legendary" and that Wadlow would become famous?

Pfft, yeah...

Confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter genius.
gambgel - 12/13/2013, 2:57 PM
wow, Millar had the biggest luck with Fox signing him last year, doesnt he?
JasonBlue - 12/13/2013, 3:06 PM

Tuuralihn - 12/13/2013, 3:11 PM
oh God... Please don't..

Can Fox crossover Millar's characters with the X-Men if they wanted to?
Omarvls - 12/13/2013, 3:51 PM
NOW IT'S GETTING OUT OF HAND

I think Millar is more concerned with his Millar-movieverse than FOX Marvel.lol
sameoldthing - 12/13/2013, 4:08 PM
Why the hate?
We should encourage comic creators having properties turned into films.
Millar has more good stuff than bad,judge the work not the man.

@ Backward

Good question, but I don't think so. I think that may brech the contract if it did happened. Marvel probably put something in the contract that won't allow something like that to happened. Probably to protect themselves and the Marvel brand if say, Sony hypathetically sold Spidey to WB and Spiderman ended up in a DC-centric movie. Marvel will proabably sue them if it happened.

Other than the Kick-Ass stuff, all of Millar's independent work is really bad.
DEATHbyEXILE - 12/13/2013, 6:13 PM
I'd rather have a Jupiter's Legacy movie
Liverpool4life - 12/13/2013, 6:38 PM
I think he writes his stuff with film rights in mind.
npamusic - 12/13/2013, 6:47 PM
I don't care if the hollywood reporter confirms it, Elmaybe is still a joke with no scoops. He reported that literally 10 minutes before HR posted it so.
Nomis - 12/13/2013, 7:11 PM
Mark Millar is the WORST thing that ever happen to comics.
optimusbibby - 12/13/2013, 9:27 PM
just shitting out movies
MightyZeus - 12/13/2013, 10:04 PM
I guess this is cool. I've never read this though.
Tyrus - 12/14/2013, 4:04 AM
Fox in talks to pick up another pile of shit.
TheAbomination - 12/14/2013, 9:51 AM
Milar sucks. But, then again, so does Fox. It's a match made in hell.
REALELMAYIMBE - 12/14/2013, 9:52 AM
@NPAMUSIC

I'm EL DEFINITELY ya cornball!
PunkRockJesus - 12/14/2013, 4:05 PM
I love how they want to adapt a comic that HASN'T EVEN BEEN PRINTED YET....

Mark Millar flew too close to the sun and now he's just M. Night Shyamalanin' himself..
PunkRockJesus - 12/14/2013, 4:05 PM
@DEATHbyEXILE

Jupiter's Legacy is actually pretty good though. I agree
VaCubFan - 12/14/2013, 7:33 PM
