Mark Millar has been a very busy man, with people nearly begging him to work on the Kick-Ass sequel and running CLiNT, the British comics magazine anthology. With his latest work Nemesis, alongside artist Steve McNiven, being optioned for a film deal Mark is as busy as he can be. The critically acclaimed writer that created a world where villains ruled (Wanted) and was crucial in Marvel comics Civil War took time out of his day to speak with Newsrama. Mark took a few minutes to talk about the current state of his current projects, the Kapow! Comic Con and a slew of others.
Millar Mayhem Time
The following are excerpts from the interview:
On Millar continuing to publish through Marvel’s Icon line-up
There will certainly still be a good relationship with Icon. Kick-Ass will definitely still be coming through Icon, and I’m talking to Marvel and other publishers about where the other stuff will be appearing. Certainly Kick-Ass. Johnny [Romita] and I are planning three volumes of Kick-Ass, and then they’ll all be done at Marvel.
The current state of Kick-Ass 2
We talk about different stuff every day, but almost certainly. We just have to make sure the actors don’t get too old. Chloë [Moretz] in particular. We can’t wait until she’s 15. We don’t want Hit-Girl with kids.
What about other works like Nemesis and Superior
The Nemesis movie is the next thing we’re all starting to get quite excited about. Hopefully in the next few weeks that’s out with a screenwriter, and hopefully when the screenplay is done in a few weeks time, we can really get moving on that. Superior should be fast-tracked as well.
