ComicBookMovie – Mark Millar Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF  FUTURE PAST And Director Bryan Singer
“Everybody has a list and at first you think ‘I’m going to please everyone’ and  then you realise you’re pleasing no-one by just throwing in ten second cameos,  you know. I think that was the major problem with that first Wolverine movie and  X-Men 3.”

Mark Miller, the man in charge of Fox’s new X-Men movies, posted some stuff on his forum and ComicBookMovie broke it down… I’ve suddenly become very afraid and very confused….

1) He calls the The Wolverine amazing, akin to something David Lean would have made… David Lean, the man who gave us Lawrence of Arabia and Dr Zhivago… really? Miller is comparing a superhero movie with ninja’s to Lawrence of Arabia? … How?

2) First Class and Wolverine are ‘year one’ as far as he’s concerned… so why in the world is he letting Singer piecemeal and shoehorn Days of Future Past with the older movies? or is this truly going to be a reboot/retcon moment in DOFP?

3) He calls The Amazing Spider-Man a ‘misfire’, not bad, just a step backwards because it retold the origin again (which yeah, okay, they didn’t really need to retell the origin) but way to smack mouth Marvel Entertainment and Sony. That’s just bad form, not to mention tacky.

4) Then he praises Dark Knight Rises as one of the best films of 2012 while simultaneously insulting it, not just pointing out any niggly issues, outright insulting the movie and Nolan.

“It has it’s problems, especially Nolan’s reluctance to make Batman himself  especially interesting, and the pay off with Bane SO anticlimactic after such a  brilliant build up.”

5) His best film of 2012? The Grey aka Liam Nesson Punching Wolves… out of ALL the movies that came out in 2012…

Mark Millar has spoken up about his role in the new Fox/Marvel movies. Apparently he’s got a three to four year plan. He also wants to see a world where you watch a Marvel comic based movie and they all feel like the same universe.

I’m a bit wary of this.

I suppose not knowing if this is three or four years is typical as he’s got a lot of future scheduling to get around and the studios can be crazy.

But it’s the “all in a same universe” that has me worried. The X-Men movies do not share the same tone as the Avengers films. The Fantastic Four is much closer to the style of the Avengers, that would work, but the X-Men is more akin to Batman than Captain America. Perhaps he meant it a general thing and not all that literal?

The Bleeding Cool article also pointed out that Millar didn’t have a lot of input on The Wolverine, so how that fits into the grand scheme is yet to be figured out, though it could be related to the supposed Jean Grey cameo.

It’s going to be a very interesting next few years…
