While Fox has no plans to relinquish control of its Marvel movie characters back to Marvel any time soon, it looks like there may be some Marvel-style consistency to films like X-Men and Fantastic Four. Marvel writer and comic creator Mark Millar has taken a position of advisor with Fox, to make sure that Fox Marvel movies are up to the same standard as the films Marvel/Disney make themselves. Marvel.
Once Marvel Studios started their ambitious Marvel Cinematic Universe, linking all their films in one world that culminated with The Avengers, executives and fans alike expressed disappointment so many major Marvel properties weren’t being treated with the same respect. 20th Century Fox has now taken a step to fix that mistake. Much as Joss Whedon is doing at Marvel, Fox has hired Mark Millar – the popular Marvel writer of stories like The Ultimates, Civil War, Old Man Logan and creator of Kick-Ass, Wanted and Nemesis – as the “creative consultant” on their upcoming films such as The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fantastic Four.
It says the move marks “an expanded commitment to some of its most important franchises” and confirms that Nemesis is still in development at the studio. Millar hints that he’s only working on those three films at the moment, but with The Wolverine already well into production, I’m not sure how much input he’ll have on that. I think this is more of an X-Men and Fantastic Four decision (which still mentions Josh Trank as the director) for now.
