Mark Millar has been talking a lot lately about the potential Marvel movies that are currently floating about. With The Wolverine set to be released soon, Mark has claimed that The Wolverine could have the same impact for Fox as Iron Man did for Marvel Studios.
Millar explained to CBR, “I felt like Iron Man was really the beginning of something for the Marvel Studios movies, and The Wolverine will be a similar starting point to build a lot off of for the Fox movies.” He also discussed other potential comic book movies they are working on.
Mark added, "X-Force or Cable or Deadpool - all these amazing characters are things we haven't really gotten to yet. You go to any convention in the world, and you'll see 20 people dressed as Deadpool. In a lot of ways, these are Marvel's coolest characters, so I want to remind people of that and build on what we already have."
He continued, “I think there's a great foundation, and just from basic conversations, we've come up with ten movies we could do. These things cost $150 million each to make, so we have to pick and choose what we want to do.”
The Wolverine is set to be released on July 25, 2013 in the UK before being released in the US on July 26, 2013.
