Yesterday, Bryan Singer announced that 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise would see another release in 2016 with X-Men: Apocalypse, and now it's been announced via The Hollywood Reporter that writer-producer Simon Kinberg has signed a three-year deal with a view to expanding the studio's Marvel properties "into full-blown universes, with the hope of creating for Fox something akin to the Marvel model of interlocking movies."
"I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel," says Kinberg, whose credits include X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class, as well as the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Fantastic Four. "I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."
Now, quite where this leave's Fox's 'Marvel Consultant' Mark Millar is anyone's guess...
As well as developing Fox's Marvel slate, Kinberg also has »

Leading up to San Diego Comic-Con this summer we discovered that Twentieth Century Fox has secured the domain names for X-Force and shortly thereafter it was confirmed that Kick-Ass 2 writer and director Jeff Wadlow was developing a script for another X-Men film. He was brought into the fold at the recommendation of consultant Mark Millar and after pitching the idea that the studio should focus on team-based movies, they dug his concept for a live-action X-Force adaptation.
X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner has always had New Mutants in mind as a property in early development, and now it’s sort of happening (New Mutants became was re-branded as X-Force in the early ’90s). Wadlow, a ...

The world is much changed since Batman and Superman were created – so what qualities would define a 21st-century hero?
And so it begins. Those smart folks at Sony have worked out that it doesn't matter so much if every other Hollywood studio owns the rights to more superheroes on the big screen than you do – so long as you have the ingenuity to invent your own masked crimefighters to light up the multiplexes.
Earlier this week, the Japanese-owned company behind the Spider-Man films revealed that it is teaming up with Stan Lee, the nonagenarian comic book legend behind dozens of Marvel's best-known characters, to bring a new superhero to cinemas. Sony's Avi Arad, who produced all four Spidey outings, will take on the challenge of helping Lee transform the comic book movie landscape once again.
It all sounds rather exciting, even if Lee's contributions to the superhero pantheon in recent »

Even though Evil Dead's hero Ash (the mighty Bruce Campbell) hasn't been on the big screen since 1992, his story has actually continued in the pages of Dynamite Comic's Army of Darkness series. One of the most popular stories from the run is a crossover between Dynamite and Marvel Comics, Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, where Ash has to tangle with undead versions of Marvel superheroes, themselves subject to a popular run of mini-series born from an idea by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar. Now the Marvel Zombies, let alone the Army of Darkness crossover, is something we will never, ever see on the big screen, so thankfully director Brian Rosenthal has put together this awesome fan film (which he also shot and edited). Starting off with Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy running from a zombie attack, it features a perfect Bruce Campbell impersonation from actor David Vonhippchen, and a »

Mark Millar has promised that Kick-Ass 3 will be the final chapter in his and John Romita Jr.'s saga, but even now that we're five issues in, it's still incredibly difficult to work out how this is all going to end. This is a crucial chapter in the third volume though, moving along Dave's story nicely and setting up a new status quo for the remainder of the series. Millar continues to deliver the original and unique ideas which make you wonder, "Why has no one else thought of this?!" in issue #5 of Kick-Ass 3 as he takes the corrupt cops who have plagued this world from day one and puts them in costumes. Their clever plan results in bad news for our costumed heroes, so go into this issue prepared for a strong punch in the gut and a real tug at your heartstrings. As per usual, the writer »

As if your summer 2015 calendar wasn't already packed, pencil in a few more, as 20th Century Fox has just announced some changes to their releases.

“Start telling the stories that only you can tell. Because there will always be better writers than you, and there will always be smarter writers than you, and there will always be, you know, people who are much better at doing this or doing that, but you are the only you.”
Stan Lee, Frank Millar, Alan Moore, Alex Ross, Garth Ennis, Geoff Johns, Mark Millar – ask any comic book fan to remove one name that they feel should not be on that list and most would plump for the latter, the man who came tied 20th with Jim Starlin in a recent poll of best comic writers of all time. He has been called everything from racist, sexist, homophobic and also bizarrely, pro-gay. He is perhaps the most divisive figure in comics but he is also unquestionably one of the greats.
