Millar Says The Wolverine Will Be Fox's Iron Man

Jay Cochran - November 13, 2012
Mark Millar who was recently named the creative consultant for 20th Century Fox's Marvel properties sat down with the folks at CBR and talked a bit about what he envisioned for the future of the X-Men Universe on the big screen.

In the article Millar says he hopes the upcoming "The Wolverine" movie which is being directed by James Mangold and stars Hugh Jackman will do for the X-Men and Fox what the first Iron Man movie did for The Avengers and Marvel, which is be a starting point to build off of for a whole Universe of Marvel mutant related movie projects.

"I felt like 'Iron Man' was really the beginning of something for the Marvel Studios movies, and 'The Wolverine' will be a similar starting point to build a lot off of for the Fox movies."

Following "The Wolverine" will be "X-Men: Days of Future Past" which is being directed by Bryan Singer and produced by Matthew Vaughn. This will be a reversal of roles for the two as Vaughn directed and Singer produced the last X-Men movie.

After that we should be seeing a Deadpool movie and perhaps even a Cable or an X-Force movie. Millar says after having meetings with Fox execs they have come up with a list of 10 movies they could do using X-Universe related characters.

"You have to remember that Fox grabbed the X-Men back in the '90s because it was the biggest franchise in the world. So X-Force or Cable or Deadpool -- all these amazing characters are things we haven't really gotten to yet. 'X-Force' #1 was the second biggest book of all time behind Jim Lee's 'X-Men' #1, so there's an immediate brand recognition to that stuff and a build in fanbase. You go to any convention in the world, and you'll see 20 people dressed as Deadpool. In a lot of ways, these are Marvel's coolest characters, so I want to remind people of that and build on what we already have. I think there's a great foundation, and just from basic conversations, we've come up with ten movies we could do. These things cost $150 million each to make, so we have to pick and choose what we want to do."
