Matthew Vaughn To Direct Mark Millar's Superior Before Kick-Ass 2?
Mark Millar has quickly become one of the most prolific and popular comic book writers of today thanks to bo both his critically acclaimed work for Marvel and his excellent creator owned work. Two of the latter have already been adapted to film (Kick-Ass and Wanted) while Nemesis is currently in pre-production with Tony Scott directing and Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt both favourites to star. Now, it seems that Millar is already lining up his and artist Lenil Francis Yu's Superior for the big screen as he revealed earlier today on his Twitter page.
According to Millar, the upcoming comic book is already recieving interest from studios while the director has the choice of helming either Kick-Ass 2 or Superior once he's done with X-Men: First Class...
"Sent Superior 1 to some buds last night and two informal offers from studios already. This is looking good."
Most interesting though was the fact that he went on to tell his followers that it's up to X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaugh to decide whether or not he wants to adapt this, Kick-Ass 2 or perhaps even something else altogether!
"I've promised Matthew Vaughn a first pass at Superior though. We're going to talk next week whether it's this, KA2 or something else next."
"Vaughn and I will be doing lots of head-scratching between Superior and Kick-Ass 2 next week."
Which of these movies would you most like to see Vaughn direct? Either way, it's clear that as soon as he's done with the new X-Men movie from Fox, he'll be pretty busy with helming yet another of Mark Millar's comic book creations whose character will seemingly be dominating the big screen alongside Marvel and DC for the forseeable future!
