Mark Miller will now oversee Fox’s Marvel properties
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
Let’s make something perfectly clear: Fox has not been consistent with their Marvel properties. There, I said it. And it’s true! Take an honest look back at the films that they’ve produced and released and you can probably name 3 that you personally like but realize weren’t very good films. Me? I liked X-2 and… uhm… yeah, that’s about it. Daredevil was watchable but forgettable as, Elektra was ignored by the world, as was the Fantastic Four films, and somehow Wolverine’s sequel film has started production before the Deadpool film.
Fox realizes that there’s money in these characters and that they need some assistance so they’ve hired Kick-Ass and Wanted scribe Mark Millar to be there Joss Whedon:
I’m seriously hoping this guys first project is the X-Men: Days of Future Past film. Why? Cus X-Men First-Class wasn’t nearly as good or profitable as it could and should have been. The upcoming X-men film is relying on one of those bigger comic storylines that I just can’t stand to see Fox screw up. They already screwed up Galactus, and they followed that up by screwing up the Dark Phoenix Saga, and topped it off by pre-ruining Deadpool and losing Daredevil back to Marvel. It’s clear that the movie studios have a hard-on for that Avengers money that got generated in May and if Fox is able to bring some stability to their properties then they have potential to do some similar numbers.
Can the “Civil War” scribe get Fox’s Marvel films back on track?
