Suppose I’m just dropping Marky Boy these days. How exactly can one create a cohesive Marvel Universe over at Fox when Marvel retains the majority of the film rights? You can’t, really! What you can do is squeeze every ounce of juice out of the titles and characters that you do own. Right?
I don’t like Bryan Singer. I don’t like his X-Men movies. Now the dude may be taking over for Matthew Vaughn, who has probably left X-Men: First Class 2 to direct some Mark Millar shit-bomb. I am unhappy with all of this! All of it!
Ah, as the tides turn. If this has occurred before Mark Millar spent his writing hours upon a toilet, blowing hate both out of his skull and ass, I would be stoked. Alas, I no longer am. Let’s see how many uncomfortable rape jokes and juvenile ethnic jokes he can slide into these two properties.
Despite being woefully offensive in his comic blatherings, Mark Millar seems to be quite the solid dude. He recently joined forces with the Power of the Internet to fell some malicious online douchebag.
Joe Carnahan has gone from that delicious Daredevil sizzle reel last week to directing Mark Millar’s Nemesis. That disappoints the shit out of me. Going from a really interesting take on the Man without Fear or Eyesight to adapting Millar’s utterly dog shit derivative shock value pile of insulting vomit. Oh well. I suppose I can just rewatch The Grey.
Directed by Nacho Vigalando, I have a feeling this teaser for Mark Millar’s comic Supercrooks is going to be more entertaining than the rag itself. This is the comic whose tagline is “There are too many superheroes in America, let’s go someplace else”, confirming that every thought Mark Millar has on the crapper is now a movie-ready franchise.
Hit the jump to check it out.
Just yesterday at the Funny Book Palace as Rendar and I were snagging new comics I got into one of my Millar rants. Condemning his shock-value bullshit and everything he’s turned into while simultaneously stating I couldn’t dismiss the backlog that made me fall in love with him. Mentioned I loved his run on The Authority with Quitely, and goddamnit now they’re teaming up again.
And it excites me.
Dave Gibbons is a fucking legend. Mark Millar is a guy who used to write good comic books but now is generally a sensationalist self-fellating fucking idiot. A couple of years ago their teaming up would have excited me, now I’m just hoping Gibbons will make some good money out of this.
Hit the jump for info on this bullshit.
Matthew Vaughn ripped it up this summer with X-Men: First Class, and his hankering for comic book adaptations hasn’t subsided. He’ll be adapted Mark Millar’s pretty uninspired and schlocky Superior next. (Yeah, fuck you Millar.)
Listen. I’m a Grant Morrison fanboy. Listen. My distaste for The Being Inhabiting Mark Millar is well known. So it’s pretty obvious that I’m fucking biased, but hearing Grant Morrison explain that Mark Millar cost him his faith in humanity is awesome. It comes in an interview promoting his forthcoming book, Supergods. Which I didn’t know excited. Fuck now I’m excited.
