Remember the news of Mark Millar, the guy behind the likes of Superior?
Well, Netflix has hashed out a huge deal and has aquired the rights to Millarsworld. So that means we could be on the verge of seeing some prolific comic book series and films based on the likes of Chrononauts, Kick-Ass and Kingsman!
“As creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history, ranging from Marvel’s The Avengers to Millarworld’s Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Wanted and Reborn franchises, Mark is as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “We can’t wait to harness the creative power of Millarworld to Netflix and start a new era in global storytelling.”
“Mark has created a next-generation comics universe, full of indelible characters living in situations people around the world can identify easily with,” added Sarandos. “We look forward to creating new Netflix Originals from several existing franchises as well as new super-hero, anti-hero, fantasy, sci-fi and horror stories Mark and his team will continue to create and publish.”
Well, someone’s over the moon…
