X4 Marvel
Marvel Comics

Mark Millar, who serves as a creative consultant to Twentieth Century Fox's Fantastic Four and X-Men movie franchises, already hinted at a potential shared universe this summer. Now, the studio is one step closer to making it a full-on reality.

Fox just signed a three-year, first-look deal with Simon Kinberg, a writer and producer on X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming Fantastic Four movie reboot. That deal gives Kinberg the go-ahead to start up a shared universe similar to the one Marvel Studios has developed, and that DC/Warner Bros. is trying to get going.

Mark Millar Teases Potential Shared ‘X-Men’ And ‘Fantastic Four’ Marvel Cinematic Universe

FFXMen

Marvel and Disney did quite a bit of work to build a cinematic universe that culminated into one big shared movie in The Avengers, and promises to do the same many times over in the years to come.

But Disney doesn't have the film rights to every Marvel character. The X-Men and The Fantastic Four are still securely under the umbrella of Twentieth Century Fox, and if Mark Millar, the creative consultant to Fox's Marvel movies has his way, they'll have a shared movie universe of their own.

‘Kick-Ass 2′ Director And Star Discuss Cutting The Comic’s Rape And Dog Killing Scenes From Film [Video]

kickass2

One tidbit from The New Republic's profile of writer Mark Millar in which he said he didn't really "think it matters" whether a bad guy rapes someone in a comic is some elaboration on why the infamous gang-rape scene from he and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass 2 was cut from the film. Also cut, apparently, a scene in which a dog is killed.

According to the film's director, Jeff Wadlow, moviegoers don't need those scenes like comic readers do, because he's working with real people rather than drawings. See his full quote, along with comments from star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, after the jump.

‘Where everything cuts loose’: Mark Millar On ‘Jupiter’s Legacy’ #3 And More

JL3

Never let it be said that Mark Millar doesn't know how to hype his work.

In a conference call last week about the upcoming Jupiter's Legacy #3, the writer compared his superhero-family drama not only to Shakespeare's Hamlet, but also to Lord of the Rings. He also stressed JL will remain a self-contained, 10-issue series, whereas his new series MPH will be the first part of a huge, Marvel-style shared universe. Check out some of these highlights from the call and a few preview pages from Jupiter's Legacy #3, which hits comic-store shelves August 28.

imageexpo2013

Tuesday marked the second annual Image Expo, the banner event where Image Comics announces its slate of upcoming projects for the year to come. Last year's expo featured announcements of a slew of new comics; this year's had a similar abundance of news, so much of it from established Marvel creators that comics creator Phil Hester took it upon himself to (probably jokingly) announce via Twitter that Marvel's creator-owned imprint Icon "is done."

markmillar-1348794268

Despite all the fuss surrounding Marvel's The Avengers and the upcoming Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of The Galaxy movies, it's worth remembering that Marvel Studios isn't the only movie studio making Marvel movies, and Fox reminded everyone of that fact yesterday by announcing that it was signing Mark Millar on as creative consultant for its X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises.The shy-and-retiring Millar, who wrote The Ultimates and Civ

Comics Professionals Tackle Online Twitter Troll

markmillar

Online harassment is, sadly, so much a part of the Comics Internet - Hell, the Internet in general, depressingly - that it can sometimes be very easy to become immune to it, even accidentally; insults or abuse become glossed over as we tut to ourselves, think troll and move on to something else
