Superior, the comic book series that came from the mind of Mark Millar- the man that gave us Kick-Ass and Wanted- is going to be getting the big screen treatment. Hollywood has seen that adapting Millar’s work has paid off in the past, and now 20th Century Fox has chosen Superior to be the next Millar property to make the jump.
The Hollywood Reporter describes Superior like this:
The comic centers on a popular and athletic 12-year-old boy who loses his social life when he is stricken by multiple sclerosis. One night, an alien monkey grants the boy one wish and he chooses to become his favorite superhero, a Superman-like character named Superior.
After relishing his new life as a hero, the boy discovers that the monkey is actually a demon from Hell and he must sell his soul if he is to remain the powerful hero »

(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. It's something Leinil and I really loved doing and, after years of wanting to work together, gave us our chance to collaborate," Millar said via the Millarworld Forums. "Matthew's producing, which is great news, and the kind of names »

The comic, which was illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu, ran for seven issues between 2010 and 2012, centering on a 12-year-old boy named Simon Pooni, who was a popular athlete before he becomes stricken with multiple sclerosis. He is visited by an alien monkey and granted one wish, which he uses to become his favorite superhero, a Superman-esque character dubbed Superior. As Simon begins to enjoy the spoils of his new life, he soon realizes that this monkey is actually from hell, and he must either sell his soul to remain this powerful hero, or return to to his crippled body.
The studio is currently searching for a writer to adapt the comic book, with Matt Reilly overseeing the project.
After finding success on the big screen »
The story revolves around a young boy stricken with multiple sclerosis who is granted one wish by an alien monkey: to become a Superman-like superhero named Superior.
Problems arise when the boy learns that the monkey isn't an alien, but a demon who demands the boy's soul in return for his transformation. If not, his wish will be undone and he will return to his original form.
Fox is now currently seeking a writer to adapt the comic.

After directing Kick-Ass and this October’s The Secret Service starring Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew Vaughn looks set to bring another Mark Millar (The Ultimates, Wanted) comic book to the big screen. However, he’ll initially serve as a producer, and there is currently no word on a writer or director.
Twentieth Century Fox are now on the hunt for a writer however according to The Hollywood Reporter, and it joins the likes of Nemesis, Starlight and American Jesus, all of which are just a few of the Millarworld projects in development for film and TV.
Written by Mark Millar with artwork from Leinil Yu (Secret Invasion, New Avengers), Superior tells the story of an athletic 12-year-old boy who loses his social life when he is stricken by multiple sclerosis. One night, an alien monkey grants the boy one wish and he chooses to become his favourite superhero, »

Ever fancied being the new Kick-Ass? Comic genius Mark Millar, the brain (and pen) behind series Wanted and Kick-Ass as well as upcoming movie adaps Secret Service and Nemesis (not to mention creative consultant on the new Fantastic Four movie), is auctioning off the name of a character in his new book, Starlight. If you’re the highest bidder, a major character in Millar’s latest – an alien with a passion for Earth pop culture – will be named after you. Starlight, which Millar wrote with artist Goran Parlov, is a six issue series...

I've recently been circling around the idea of actually getting a tattoo. If I get one, it will be my first. But I've been thinking about some of the tattoos that I've seen in the movies over the years, and I started looking them up online to remind myself of what they looked like. I would never get a tattoo that I saw in a movie, it'd have to be an original design, but I was looking for a little inspiration.
While going through all the movie tattoos that I could think of, I decided to put together a list of some of the most memorable tattoos have been featured on the big screen. Here they are in no particular order.
How many of you forgot about how badass McConaughey was in this dragon slaying action film?! He sported some crazy cool tattoo art in it. »

If you get a hard-on for character posters then no doubt this collection of assets from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will tip you right over the edge. It's a mixed bag of one-sheets each displaying what appears to be varying levels of quality and most of which revolve around Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman). Most characters have been doubled up together on the new posters but we do get some more glimpses at the shapely figure of Miss Jennifer Lawrence ('House at the End of the Street'). Also appearing are James McAvoy ('Wanted'), Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen ('The Hobbit'), Halle Berry ('Gothika'), Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore and Nicholas Hoult ('Warm Bodies'). You can check them all out below. »
TriStar Productions today announced an all-star band of film talent will collaborate on Ricki and the Flash. Produced by Marc Platt and Mason Novick, the film unites Oscar winners Diablo Cody, who wrote the original screenplay, director Jonathan Demme, and Meryl Streep, who will star in the title role.
Ricki and the Flash is the funny and touching story of a rock n' roll-loving woman who chased her tattered dream at the price of her family, but gets a last chance to, perhaps, make things right. Streep, the most Oscar-nominated actor in history, is well known for her singing prowess on stage and screen (Mamma Mia!, Into the Woods), but Ricki is a new gig even for the musically gifted star: a guitar-wielding, hard rockin' mamma by night and grocery store checkout lady by day.

Las Vegas - 20th Century Fox's presentation of the studio's upcoming slate to the nation's theater owners kicked off with a live performance of the song "Rio Rio" from "Rio 2," but it was the movies themselves that had the most impact. It appears every studio at CinemaCon professes to this year's lineup being "our best in years," but Fox could justify that hyperbole even though they were confident enough not to say it. The studio already has three of the most anticipated movies of the summer with Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," DreamWorks Animation's "How To Train Your Dragon 2" (thanks for all that brand awareness from the first one, Paramount) and Matthew Reeves' "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes." The studio brought out stars Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann to introduce an extended trailer from "The Other Woman," Shailene Woodley gave a heartfelt »

A new UK trailer for Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has emerged along with a fresh cast-filled poster. The coming together of 'X-Men' past and present as well as the coming together of the mutants and their past selves in what will no doubt be an action packed time twisting head scratcher. And any trailer that includes a Patrick Stewart voiceover will always give it a decent seal of quality. The sequel/prequel stars Stewart, James McAvoy ('Wanted'), Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen ('The Hobbit'), Jennifer Lawrence ('House at the End of the Street'), Halle Berry ('Gothika'), Anna Paquin ('True Blood'), Ellen Page ('Inception'), Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult ('Warm Bodies'), Evan Peters ('American Horror Story') and Hugh Jackman ('Les Miserables'). Check out the new poster and trailer below. »
or "Hey, when are those Marvel-not-Marvel, non-Avengers team movies coming out?"
Whatever criticism he may receive for his shameless self-promotion and hyperbole, comic book writer Mark Millar has done what few others have been able to do in the medium since Marvel was the new kid on the block: create compelling comic book characters that successfully translate to the silver screen. Millar created Fox and the Killer, who featured in Wanted, and Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl from the Kick-Ass movies, and dozens more characters are poised to make the leap from page to screen.
Millar's not stingy with his superhero movie mojo either, if the amount of enthusiastic buzz that X-Men: Days of Future Past and the rebooted Fantastic Four franchise have generated since he became Creative Consultant for Fox's superhero properties. Of course, the proof is in the cosmic ray-infused pudding so we won't know if he really is Fox's »

Reunited after Adventureland, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are already at the top of the cast list for American Ultra. They now look to be gaining some fierce support: Uma Thurman is in talks to join them.Eisenberg plays "unmotivated stoner" Mike in the action comedy, with Stewart his girlfriend. They live an uneventful life in a small town until it turns out that Mike is actually a Bourne-like amnesiac sleeper agent in a program the government has decided to shut down and wipe out.Thurman's role - if she takes it - is that of Mike's former handler, who spearheaded the programme and is now determined to protect her charge. According to the synopsis she'll "fight like a momma bear to protect her cub". Sounds like an opportunity to bring some Bride-like toughness to a role not dissimilar to Angelina Jolie's in Wanted.Stoner action comedies can be »
Stalingrad star Thomas Kretschmann is going to appear in not one but multiple, upcoming Marvel movies, beginning with a significant role in 2015′s Avengers: Age of Ultron, where he’ll star as the very serious sounding villain Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.
Kretschmann isn’t very well known to most American audiences, but has been working steadily since the late 1980s in films that range from The Karate Dog, Wanted and King Kong to the aforementioned Stalingrad, which has been performing very well overseas despite having limited to no presence here in the States.
Still, Marvel has an amazing track record when it comes to casting their movies, so we should all just chill out and be super confident about this particular casting choice, even though Baron on Strucker has a long and storied history in the Marvel Universe that is going to make expectations pretty lofty.
For those unfamiliar with the character, »

"Forty years ago, Duke McQueen was the space hero who saved the universe. But then he came back home, got married, had kids, and grew old. Now his children have left and his wife has passed away, leaving him alone with nothing except his memories...until a call comes from a distant world asking him back for his final and greatest adventure. This issue launches the much-anticipated Millarworld Universe. Get in on the start of something Massive!"
It's been a long time since a comic book created a strong emotional reaction within me. I've been exhilarated by titles like Zero and have been enjoying a lot of Marvel's recent output with titles like Superior Spider-Man and Uncanny X-Men. I've laughed at dry, funny fare like Hawkeye and Superior Foes of Spider-Man. Mark Millar and Goran Parlov's new series Starlight manages to dig a little deeper and »
