Mark Millar: The Wolverine Is To Fox As Iron Man Is To Marvel Studios

Posted by monique On November - 12 - 2012 0 Comment

To me, “Iron Man” is like Marvel Studios’ Mickey Mouse in a way. I guess, since Marvel is now under the Disney umbrella, that could be technically true in a sense. Other studios are trying to get their own superhero tentpole star, and Fox is destined to make Wolverine theirs.

According to Digital Spy, Mark Millar has said that Wolverine could be the starting point for Fox to create their own Marvel Universe films with their Marvel characters.

“I felt like ‘Iron Man’ was really the beginning of something for Marvel Studios movies, and ‘The Wolverine’ will be a similar starting point to build a lot off of for the Fox movies,” he said to Comic Book Resources.

Millar also said that Fox, who owns “Fantastic Four” and “X-Men” properties, are discussing possibly as many as 10 comic book-based movie projects. The projects could possibly include characters like Deadpool, X-Force and Cable.

“In a lot of ways, these are Marvel’s coolest characters, so I want to remind people of that and build on what we already have,” he said. “I think there’s a great foundation, and just from basic conversations, we’ve come up with 10 movies we could do.”
