Mark Millar Praises The Wolverine, Saying It’s ‘Going to Surprise People’

What are Mark Millar‘s most anticipated movies of 2013? It should come as no surprise to learn that they’re all comics-related, and most of them are somehow tied to him.

“Looking forward to: In 2013? Kick-Ass 2. There can be only one,” he wrote on MillarWorld. “Also buzzed about Superman and – the big surprise, I think – The Wolverine. The script is amazing and Mangold is such a brilliant director. Seen the first 10 mins and it looks like David Lean doing a superhero movie. This the one that’s going to surprise people. This and First Class were Year Zero for the Fox Marvel movies as far as I’m concerned.”

Millar wrote the Kick-Ass comics, so it shouldn’t come as much of a shock to learn that he’s stoked to see that film finally hit theaters. He also is acting as Fox’s consultant for their Marvel films, which may explain some of the enthusiasm for The Wolverine. We’d have to agree with him about both those film, though, because they are shaping up to be pretty fantastic — as is Man of Steel, unless director Zack Snyder manages to mess it up.

In addition to the films he’s most looking forward to, Millar talked about the movies he loved the most in 2012. Number one was The Grey (directed by almost-Daredevil helmer Joe Carnahan, we should note), number two was Chronicle and number three was The Dark Knight Rises. “Controversial, I know,” Millar wrote. As for the year’s biggest misfire, Millar lists off The Amazing Spider-Man and Men In Black 3.

    Hmmm…Mark Millar gets hired by Fox as their new Marvel Head Cheerleader. Subsequently, Millar cheers about Fox’s upcoming Wolverine film.
    I mean, what’s he gonna say? The film is mediocre? The film is crap, go see Pacific Rim instead? It’s like the Pope saying he’s a huge fan of Catholicism. It’s hardly impartial.

    To Mark Millar :

    it talks about X-men Days of Future Past 2014 Movie, I’ve seen in internet too a lot of people have been waiting very long time for Age of Apocalypse who Main Villains are Apocalypse Mister Sinister Holocaust and Exodus, people would want to see that involving in X-men Days of Future Past 2014, returning mutants-life such as Dark Phoenix, Cyclops, and Professor X, Famke Janssen, James Marsden, and Patrick Stewart. Focus on the Dark Phoenix is return which played with Famke Janssen she should get a bigger role as White Phoenix of the Crown, X-men Days of Future Past Having Main Villains such as Bastion, Sentinels, and Nimrod also may Mojo

    Ugh, cheerleading a movie put out by the company that employs him. Shocker. And Amazing Spider-Man was a misfire? Really? Cos that flick made a SHIT TONNE of money and was a better Spider-Man movie than all three of Rami’s combined.

    Don’t like kick-ass, but The Grey was my favorite of the year as well and the amazing spider man totally sucked so I respect this man.
