"I was sent here for you – from the future," says Wolverine to a disheveled Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), who responds with a puzzled "Could you give that to me one more time, please?"

'Kick-Ass' director Matthew Vaughn bringing Mark Miller's 'Superior' to the big screen

14 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Mark Millar's creator-owned work has a long history with Hollywood, with "Wanted," "Kick-Ass," "Kick-Ass 2," "The Secret Service" and more all getting a silver screen presence. Thus, it should come as little surprise that another one of his creator-owned books will see a big screen debut. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has picked up the film rights for Millar and Leinil Yu's "Superior" miniseries with Matthew Vaughn attached to produce. Vaughn has a long history with Millar's Hollywood adaptations, dating back to his time helming "Kick-Ass." He is also currently directing "The Secret Service" film adaptation.   "This project actually means an awful lot to me.

Fox Finds Superior

17 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A few years ago, we sat down with Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar to get the lowdown on some of his other developing comics projects. Among them was Superior, which Millar told us he was putting together as a film deal even as he wrapped up work on the book. Things have been quiet on the film front since then, aside from some talk of regular Millar collaborator Matthew Vaughn producing any movie version. Cut to today, and 20th Century Fox has grabbed the rights to the title.That Fox would land Superior isn’t much of a shock: Millar has been involved behind the scenes with the studio on various comic book properties, working alongside the likes of Simon Kinberg and Vaughn himself. Plus, the studio is bringing out another of the writer’s titles, The Secret Service, with Vaughn calling the shots and Colin Firth starring. We got a »

Currently finishing up "X-Men: Days of Future Past," filmmaker Bryan Singer has confirmed that the film directly ties into the next film "X-Men: Apocalypse" albeit in ways you won't expect. Singer tells EW:

"You won't feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities.

What we'll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were?

You're dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?"

Fox won't release X-Men: Days of Future Past until May, but with X-Men: Apocalypse already set for release in 2016, there's no time to waste in planning the sequel.
