Kick-Ass Creator Mark Millar Has An Insane Idea For A Hit-Girl Movie

5 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Mark Millar is very popular these days. The man behind Kingsman: The Secret Service has turned several of his comic properties into box office gold. Apparently one of the ideas the man behind Kick-Ass is toying with is a solo flick for Kick-Ass heroine Hit-Girl. Speaking to JoBlo comic creator Mark Millar talked about the various irons he has in the fire regarding upcoming films. One of the items under consideration is a standalone Hit-Girl movie. The only problem is that it.s apparently a bit...unorthodox: We have a crazy idea for it, and every now and then I think, is this too crazy? Because it's kind of insane. Would the world accept this? It makes Kick-Ass look like Finding Nemo. Is anybody else terrified? When the man behind Kick-Ass and Kingsman says an idea is "insane" what are we supposed to think. Kick-Ass was insane. Kingsman was out »

Mark Millar Says Starlight & Chrononauts Will Be His Next Titles To Hit The Big Screen

9 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Having already seen several of his original comics brought to life on the big screen, prolific writer Mark Millar recently revealed that Starlight and Chrononauts will probably be the next two 'Millarworld' properties to get the green light. The Scottish scribe is famously associated with a number of recent R-rated comic book movie hits, including the Kick-Ass films and this year's incredibly popular Kingsman: The Secret Service. Millar recently sat down with JoBlo to update them about some of his other comic-to-film projects: "The next two that I think will be moving forward pretty quickly are Starlight and Chrononauts, I think they'll probably be made at the same time as Kingsman 2, if not even before. I think Starlight's screenplay is finished now, it was written by Gary Whitta, he finished the screenplay a couple of weeks back and we're just moving forward now looking for a director."

Kingsman: The Secret Service HD Release Review

26 May 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service, in the words of director Matthew Vaughn, is a kind of post-modern love letter to spy movies, and that’s about as accurate a description of the effort as you’re going to get. Every move is clearly aimed at not only the vision and style of early Bond and his ilk, but pulls in the kind of post-modern storytelling that made Kick-Ass the curious wunderfilm it is.

Taron Egerton plays Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, a clever enough lad who is a victim of his circumstances. Harry Hart (Colin Firth), aka Galahad, bails Eggsy out of jail, and makes him a very unique offer. A member of a sort of double-super-secret spy organization, Hart sees something in Eggsy, and thinks he could be just the candidate to join the ranks of the spy elite.

We then get to take a ride through spy school, as several candidates »

Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service

25 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

You have to give Mark Millar a lot of credit. Not only does he possess a fertile imagination, but produces works that are ripe for cinematic adaptation. A cynic could tell you Millar does this by design, but I believe he’s just in tune with the current zeitgeist. As a result, just about everything he releases gets snapped up by Hollywood and if they’re all as successful as Kingsman: The Secret Service, we’re all the better for it. The incredible streak began with the wonderful Kick-Ass, which was brought to the screen by director Matthew Vaughn and they have successfully reteamed here.

The film is out now on Digital HD from 20th Century Home Entertainment, with the DVD combo set to follow. On the extras, co-writer Jane Goldman notes how the film and comic share the same DNA but changes had to be made from print to »

Ed Catto: Look Who’s Talking … or Who Should Be

25 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

It can be a pretty disappointing world out there. So often, our real word heroes stumble and reveal they are less than what they appeared to be. We see it all the time with politicians in whom we had once believed, celebrities we had once admired and even with high profile people who may have not even been on our radar until their fall from grace. “He really tweeted that?” “I can’t believe she said that to a parking attendant!” “Didn’t she know there was a camera recording it all?” These are just a few sentences we’ve recently uttered in exasperation around our household.

On the other hand, one of the cool things about fictional characters is that it’s unlikely that they’ll misbehave. It’s no secret in advertising that using a fictional spokesperson relieves a marketer of the fears of using a real-life spokesperson. »

Fantastic Four: 10 Things That Could Save The Reboot

14 May 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

To be fair, the first two Fantastic Four movies were released pre-Iron Man/McU under Fox’s banner and they thus didn’t benefit from the deep creative pool of current Marvel films. They had room to fail. Come to think of it, unfortunately, the same can be said for the upcoming reboot.

Taking a leaf out of Marvel’s relationship with the source, Civil War and Fantastic Four comic writer Mark Millar was brought on as a creative consultant, but will that be enough to bring the Fan Four back to relevance?

It’s clear that the filmmakers are taking some risks this time around. This is a younger Ff, which will offer not only the re-telling of the origin story (which is closer to the “Ultimate Fantastic Four” telling), but apparently also the kindling of Reed and Sue’s romance. The “interracial siblings” twist is new »

Martin Freeman won't be playing a superhero in Captain America: Civil War

9 May 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Millar has teased Martin Freeman's role in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.

The comic book writer revealed Freeman won't be donning a superhero costume in the third outing for Captain America.

Millar told Radio Times: "I know who he's playing in the film, but I guess it's still a secret."

Millar continued: "The character is not a super-person, it's somebody who's… well, I don't want to spoil it for anybody but he's not going to be in costume."

The Kingsman: The Secret Service writer admitted he is a fan of the Sherlock actor and believes he could play any character.

"All I'll say is, he's not the Red Skull."

Producer Kevin Feige said of Freeman last week: "From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in The Office, Martin's range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us.

"Thor: Ragnarok" - Updates

6 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ the origins of Marvel Comics' super-villain 'Ragnarok', appearing in Marvel Studios' next "Thor" solo movie "Thor: Ragnarok", connecting with the "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" and "Captain America: Civil War":

'Ragnarok', created by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame,  is a supervillain debuting in Marvels "Civil War" #3 (July 2006) as a 'cyborg clone' of Thor.

"...when 'Thor' was missing in action, presumed dead, 'Tony Stark' took one of his hairs, which he had retained from the first meeting of the 'Avengers' and cloned the 'Asgardian' DNA with Stark technology. This resulted in the creation of a new, cyborg Thor. 

"Ragnarok has all the powers and knowledge of Thor including super-strength, extensive combat knowledge, stamina, high resistance to physical injury, immunity to Earthly diseases, superhuman agility and reflexes.

"Ragnarok's hammer, though not the enchanted 'Mjolnir', is constructed of a 'vibranium' and 'adamantium' alloy, able to absorb and discharge lightning, »

Movie News - Kingsman sequel is in the works

4 May 2015 4:19 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' is getting a sequel. The 2014 spy action comedy film directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth just topped $400 million at the global box office, and a sequel is now in the works at Fox, although there is no release date as of yet, TheWrap reports. Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton co-starred in 'Kingsman', which had an $80 million production budget. Matthew also co-wrote the film with Jane Goldman and produced the movie, which was based on the comic book 'The Secret Service', created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. It was previously reported that Colin could star in a sequel for 'Kingsman', despite having been killed off in the first film. The 54-year-old star appeared unlikely to return for the much-anticipated sequel after his on-screen character, Harry, was shot by Valentine - played by Samuel L Jackson - in the first movie. »

How ‘Kingsman’ Braved ‘Fifty Shades’ & Topped $400M Worldwide

20th Century Fox’s Kingsman: The Secret Service always had enough bullets at the box office to survive against S&M romance behemoth Fifty Shades Of Grey. The Matthew Vaughn-helmed action film, based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ comic book The Secret Service was, for the most part, smartly placed on the domestic and foreign schedule as prime-grade meat for those guys around the globe who wouldn’t waste a $1 on the feature adaptation of the E L James novel.

Kingsman: The Secret Service Sequel Goes Into Development

29 April 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Proving that Matthew Vaughn knows what it takes to make a R rated comic book adaption, Kingsman: The Secret Service exploded out of the traps earlier this year, with the super fun, over the top spy movie pastiche grossing over $400 million at the world wide box office. While we're still waiting for Mark Millar to write the comic book sequel (the original was published in 2012, and Millar has went onto pen Mph, Jupiter's Legacy, Starlight, and Chrononauts since then. All optioned to be made into movies, incidentally), The Wrap are reporting that the movies success has seen 20th Century Fox put their own sequel into development. It's early days yet, but Vaughn has said in the past that any possible sequel would introduce the American branch of the super spy group, possibly introducing culture clash of sorts with the James Bond styled English Kingsman with Jason Bourne-like Americans.
