    Mark Millar Says 'Nemesis' Moving Ahead With Joe Carnahan Directing

    The ratio of truth to... exagerrated truth with Mark Millar doesn't give the kind of odds you'd want to put any kind of significant money on. But every now and then he's right, and he's at least entertaining to a certain degree, but as always, take this with a grain of salt with a si...

    Will Warner Bros. 'Justice League' Be "Dark & Mature"? Pathological Exaggerator Mark Millar Says Yes

    If J.J Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Damon Lindelof and Ridley Scott are viewed as being on the secretive side about revealing plot details and information regarding their unreleased, often still-in-development movies, one then must consider comic book writer Mark Millar to be on the exact opposit...

    Mark Millar Claims 'Kick Ass 2' Will Shoot This Summer: 5 Other Things He's Said That Never Happened

    Oh, Mark Millar. In an industry where hyperbole and exaggeration are king, Mark Millar is on a whole other level, always eager to talk about himself and his films with whoever is willing to listen, often feeding the machine with lots of excitement about projects that are premature to say the least. ...

    Mark Millar Teams With Nacho Vigalondo For Teaser For 'Supercrooks' Comic & Movie

    Mark Millar, the source writer of both “Kick-Ass” and “Wanted,” likes to talk. He’s always got something to say about the various projects based on his work, and often the legitimacy and accuracy of said comments can be brought into question. We’re still waiting to hear confirmation of that “Kick-As...

    Matthew Vaughn Eyes Adaptations Of Mark Millar's 'Superior' & 'The Secret Service'

    Even though "X-Men: First Class" was a big hit, earning over $350 million worldwide, Matthew Vaughn has kept a low profile since the summer with barely a peep out of the director. He's likely been recharging his batteries after a whirlwind production and press tour that saw him rushing to get the superhero movie locked in time, all while talking to basically everybody on the planet about the film. While there was much talk of a '70s or '80s set 'First Class' sequel in the run up to the film's release, that chatter has pretty much died off. While Fox has "The Wolverine" on deck for their next trip in to the 'X-Men' franchise, Vaughn is beginni...

    Mark Millar Finally Admits Window On 'Kick Ass 2' Happening Is Shrinking

    Concedes Matthew Vaughn Would Likely Only Produce, Not DirectMark Millar likes to talk a lot of shit. In fact, for much of 2010 the comic writer could not shut the hell up about a potential "Kick-Ass 2," boldly proclaiming it would be like "A Clockwork Orange" or "A History Of Violence," predicting it would hit theaters in 2012, and that it was green-lit with pre-production set to begin this past April. Well obviously, none of those things happened. And talking recently to Hero Complex, a much more humble and reasonable Millar finally admitted that the likelihood of a sequel was looking pretty slim and not only that, Matthew Vaughn is probabl...

    'Time Crimes' Director Nacho Vigalondo To Direct Adaptation Of Mark Millar Comic 'Supercrooks'

    Generally speaking, when we hear something about a new Mark Millar film project, we tend to disregard it: the comic book creator of "Wanted" and "Kick-Ass" has a fluid relationship with the truth, and one too many examples of his untruths (he's writing "X-Men 4"! "Kick-Ass 2" will film this year!) h...

    Jane Goldman Not Working On 'Kick-Ass 2' Script; Says Matthew Vaughn's Next Film Is Something Else

    Sorry Mark MillarThis weekend a Daily Mail report casually mentioned that screenwriter Jane Goldman ("Kick Ass," "Stardust," "X-Men: First Class") was busy at work penning the "Kick Ass 2" screenplay (from her bed, no less) and the story picked up traction in fanboy circles. Sorry, apostles, but Gol...

    Mark Millar Claims 'Most High Profile Actor Of 2010' Will Star In Adaptation Of 'Superior'

    If the films based on the comic books of Mark Millar (or indeed, the comic books themselves) came anywhere near to matching the creator's ability to hype them up, his success rate would be close to Stanley Kubrick's. Instead, the William Castle of the comic book world has been behind "Wanted" and "K...
