Studio 8 has picked up the film rights to "Huck," the latest comic book effort from "Kingsman: The Secret Service" and "Kick Ass" creator Mark Millar.

The story follows a superhuma of simple intelligence who tries to anonymously perform one good deed per day, from the mundane to the fantastic. When he is revealed to the world by a reporter, Huck finds himself in the crosshairs of villains - from whom, unbeknownst, he was hidden his entire life.

The project is now out to writers and directors to adapt the limited series.

Comics: Marvel Planning Civil War II For Spring 2016; Check Out The First Teaser Image

5 October 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's Civil War was such a success back in 2006 that it's no doubt responsible for the yearly line wide events which have so far followed such as Secret Invasion, Avengers Vs. X-Men, and the currently ongoing Secret Wars. The fact that it's taken this long for a Civil War sequel is surprising in itself, but next year is obviously the perfect time thanks to the release of Captain America: Civil War. Well, as you can see, the beans appear to have been inadvertently spilled too soon by Marvel as a postcard has been sent out to retailers seemingly announcing the follow-up (a press release making it 100% official can't be far away).  We have no idea about the creative team at this stage, but the image below was drawn by McNiven, so he at least may be returning. Millar on the other hand is likely far too »

Kingsman 2 to Start Shooting Next Year, But May Clash With Robin Hood: Origins

2 October 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons’ (Watchmen) Kingsman: The Secret Service exceeded everyone’s expectations earlier this year when it grossed over $400 million worldwide, so talk of a sequel shouldn’t surprise you! Unfortunately, it seems like the production of the sequel – which Vaughn is currently writing – may

Taron Egerton faces scheduling conflict with Kingsman 2 and Robin Hood: Origins

2 October 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Taron Egerton’s packed schedule could cause problems for two franchises he is set to lead, with Kingsman 2 and Robin Hood: Origins both intending to shoot in the early part of 2016.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Egerton’s post-Kingsman success is creating studio headaches similar to those caused by Jennifer Lawrence’s commitments to X-Men and The Hunger Games.

Lionsgate is looking to shoot Robin Hood: Origins with Egerton as the lead in February, but Fox’s plans to have Kingsman 2 in front of cameras around April could present a problem.

Fox is currently in prime position, given their sequel option on Egerton following the $412m worldwide gross of Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Fox Hoping To Begin Production On Kingsman 2 Next April

1 October 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite an impressive cast made up of names like Colin Firth, Michael Caine, and Samuel L. Jackson, no one expected big things from Kingsman: The Secret Service earlier this year. However, the movie exceeded expectations thanks to positive reviews and a haul of over $400 million worldwide.

It should come as no surprise then that Fox wants to get a sequel moving, and a new report reveals that they’re hoping to begin production in April 2016. The only problem with that right now is the fact that Taron Egerton will be starting work on Lionsgate’s Robin: Hood Origins in February, leading to a potential clash. Don’t fret about the talented Welsh actor being replaced, however, as it’s thought that both studios will be able to work around his schedule.

8 Captain America: Civil War Rumors That We Hope Come True

1 October 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Captain America: Civil War is by far one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016, and looks set to be perhaps the biggest one, too (sorry, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). As the first film in Marvel’s Phase 3, it’s going to set the stage for everything to come, as Captain America and Iron Man go to war and the Avengers are divided.

Regardless of how close to Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Civil War the film ends up sticking, it’s still going to be historic, especially as it’s going to feature Spider-Man’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, with Civil War being such a huge movie, there are inevitably a lot of rumours surrounding it.

'Kingsman 2' Wants to Shoot in Spring 2016, But There's a Problem

1 October 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If everything goes according to plan, Kingsman 2 will shoot this spring. But there is a major problem that needs to be worked out first. Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton has become a hot commodity in Hollywood following the film's release earlier this year, and he is being sought by some of the biggest studios for quite a few high priority projects. He's actually landed one of these projects, and it could cause a scheduling issue for 20th Century Fox and it's impending sequel.

Taron Egerton is set to lead Robin Hood: Origins for Lionsgate, which is going to start shooting this February. The film likely won't be wrapped by the time Fox wants production to begin on Kingsman 2. Right now, it looks like there will be a conflict with the sequel's start date. But the hope is this issue can be resolved soon.

8 Ways In Which Captain America: Civil War Could Be A Total Letdown

29 September 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Captain America: Civil War is easily one of 2016’s most highly anticipated movies, and while Marvel has yet to release a single official still, fans are already chomping at the bit to see Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s 2006 comic book event series finally brought to the big screen.

Based on interviews, the few pieces of information which have been revealed all point to Captain America: Civil War being great. But what if isn’t? It’s not nice to think about, and while Marvel Studios certainly knows what the hell they’re doing, there’s nothing to say that Phase 3’s opening movie is going to live up to the hype.

'Kingsman 2' Will Bring Back Colin Firth If It Makes Sense

28 September 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There will be Spoilers for Kingsman: The Secret Service below, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, read on at your own risk. Although it opened on the same weekend as box office juggernaut Fifty Shades of Grey, 20th Century Fox's action-thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service still held its own, pulling in $128.2 million domestic and $412.1 million worldwide during its impressive theatrical run. The studio gave the green light for a follow-up, Kingsman 2, back in April, with director Matthew Vaughn and writer Jane Goldman currently working on the sequel script.

While discussing the sequel with IGN, Mark Millar, who created the comic book the adaptation is based on, revealed that the filmmakers are trying to find a way to bring Colin Firth back as Harry Hart. Of course, Harry died in a memorable scene towards the end of Kingsman: The Secret Service, but that still isn't stopping the filmmakers »

How Many Good Years Superhero Movies Have Left, According To Mark Millar

28 September 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Comic writer Mark Millar has found himself as a rather big name in comic book movies recently. After all, it was his run on "Ultimate Fantastic Four" that heavily inspired Josh Trank's recent film; Captain America: Civil War will be a partial adaptation of an event arc that he wrote about a decade ago; and there's been a great deal of speculation suggesting that Wolverine 3 will be based on his "Old Man Logan" series. As a result of this, the guy really does have a lot to gain from a bright and happy future for the genre - but evidently he thinks it may only have "another five good years left." Ever since Steven Spielberg was quoted saying that superhero movies will eventually go the way of the Western, reporters have been asking filmmakers and storytellers for their opinion on the subject, and it was while talking with IGN »

Mark Millar On "Four," "Ultron," "Kingsman"

28 September 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Wanted" and "Kick Ass" comic creator Mark Millar is 20th Century Fox's go to guy for consultation on Marvel projects, and he's also a fairly forthcoming guy about not just his work but comic book film adaptations in general.

In a new interview with IGN UK, Millar has talked about quite a few major comic book films that have either just hit or are on the way. The results are often interesting.

First up "Fantastic Four" and where a sequel to that stands: "I think everything's open to discussion. No decision has been made on anything yet like that. There's chats everyone's going to have on the phone at some point." As for the film itself? He says "it's a shame" how it turned out, though admitted liking certain elements.

He says Marvel Studios has similar problems with some of their films: "'Thor 2' didn't work out especially well; ' »

Mark Millar Talks 'Fantastic Four' Sequel, Says 'Age Of Ultron' "Nowhere Near As Good" As First 'Avengers' Movie

28 September 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case you forgot, Mark Millar is the creative consultant on the Marvel movies at 20th Century Fox, and especially compared to Kevin Feige, has absolutely no filter. Where Feige carefully parses his statements, Millar walks around dropping truth bombs, and he's got a few to start your Monday morning. Regarding "Fantastic Four," the fantastic flop that dropped with a splat in August, Millar reveals that there is still no word on a potential sequel, which is still on the release calendar for 2017. “I think everything's open to discussion. No decision has been made on anything yet like that. There's chats everyone's going to have on the phone at some point," he told IGN. As for his feelings on Josh Trank's movie, he says "it's a shame" how it all turned out, though he adds that "elements of it were good." However, Millar notes that not everything turns out to be a home run. »

Mark Millar Weighs In On Making Captain America: Civil War Work As A Movie

28 September 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in 2006, writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven teamed up for Civil War, an epic seven part event series which took over pretty much every single Marvel Comics title as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes went to war with each other over the Superhuman Registration Act. For years, fans hoped the story might be adapted for the big screen, and that’s now happening with next year’s Captain America: Civil War.

It’s unclear just how faithful to the source material the movie is going to be, but surprisingly, Millar has pointed out that there’s one key moment he’s ok with being left out, and that’s when Spider-Man unmasked to the world.

“People remember that because it was such a good stunt. It’s a seven-issue series, which is 150 pages or something, and Spider-Man appears it it for three pages, one of which is a splash. »

Anthony Mackie Isn’t Ready To Take Over As Captain America After Civil War

28 September 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For those of you familiar with the Civil War comic book, you’ll know that it ends with Captain America surrendering himself to the authorities and later being assassinated by Crossbones (and Sharon Carter, but that’s where things get complicated, as everything from mind control to time travel are involved). Before Steve Rogers inevitably returned, Bucky took over the mantle, and fans are now anxious to know whether the same will apply in the McU.

Of course, with Captain America: Civil War looking like a fairly loose adaptation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s event story and Chris Evans expected to return for Avengers: Infinity War, Sebastian Stan taking over could be some time away from happening, but there’s also a chance that Marvel skips Bucky altogether and passes the mantle to Anthony Mackie’s Falcon instead.

Mark Millar discusses the Fantastic Four controversy and gives an update on the sequel

28 September 2015 1:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s no secret that Fantastic Four has been somewhat of a disaster for 20th Century Fox. Director Josh Trank started the blame game with the studio days before its release, some actors haven’t even seen the movie yet (while others are poking fun at its poor box office run), and there is a wild rumour that they’ve already scraped the sequel in favour of Deadpool 2.

Back in January, we sat down with Mark Millar to get his thoughts on the movie (which he served as a creative consultant) and now in an interview with IGN he discusses much of the controversy mentioned above, while also touching upon the future of the franchise.

“It’s a shame because I think elements of it were good,” he said. “Some bits were good. I remember the first half in particular works well. [Josh Trank] is brilliant. Chronicle was my favorite superhero movie »
