Bye, Dave. Hello, Patience. It was just revealed that the new Kick-Ass is named Patience Lee, a military veteran and mother in her early 30s living in New Mexico. She’s the star of the next iteration of the popular comic book series from Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.
When Netflix bought comics writer Mark Millar’s self-titled publishing universe of comics, it was with the intention of turning Millar’s back catalogue into a cavalcade of streaming shows—as well as to continue to publish new series under the Netflix name, presumably before they too get turned into shows. Now we know…
Imagine you were 10 years old and given five minutes to tear through a toy store. You’d sprint in, grab everything you wanted, and fall down from exhaustion at the end. It would be an amazing time, but with so much happening so fast, what would the real, lasting memory be? That experience, in movie form, is Kingsman:…
The stable of characters thought up by the writer who co-created Wanted, Kingsmen, and Kick-Ass has been bought by one of the biggest players in filmed entertainment.
Before Mark Millar’s Chrononauts was even released in 2015, the comic had already been tapped for a movie adaptation. However, as is so often the case these days, the updates stopped there. Fast-forward to today and there is finally some movement on the project.
Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass isn’t just making a return—it’s doing so without its main character, Dave Lizewski, in the Kick-Ass role. This time, the mantle is being passed on to someone entirely different.
When comic book author Mark Millar writes something, people take notice. Comic readers, sure, but in recent years Hollywood as well. Wanted, Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Civil War are just a few of Millar’s stories that have made it to the big screen, and now two more are on deck.
The Chrononauts comic by Mark Millar was only just released, but it's already been fast-tracked by Universal for a feature film. So get ready for a movie about two sexy geniuses who show the world their time-traveling adventures, live on TV.
If you care about action movies and want to see them rescued from the doldrums, then you owe it to yourself to see Kingsman: The Secret Service. This movie is psychotically violent, to the point where the violence practically shatters the fourth wall, and it shows what action movies can be, if they're willing to go…
Humanity has done a reasonably solid job investigating the land, the oceans, and the sky, but in Mark Millar's new comic Chrononauts, two fun-loving geniuses begin exploring the time-stream with a few people looking over their shoulder — namely, a live television audience.
Mark Millar seems to think there's a chance. But the numbers from Kick-Ass 2 make it seem unlikely. Which is an opinion shared by the stars of the films.
Matthew Vaughn may be done with the X-Men, and Kick-Ass, but that doesn't mean he's done with comics movies. In fact, he's producing the new movie adaptation of Mark Millar's Superior — a story about a boy with multiple sclerosis who has the chance to become a superhero, if he gives up his soul.
Telling you it's a good time to be a comic book fan is like telling you oxygen is a helpful thing to inhale. You know this already. It's just a fact. We've been treated to some of the best, most thoughtful, and most fun comics of all time over the last several years, and that's clearly not going to stop in 2014. Here…
Fox's Head of Marvel Movies, Mark Millar, has announced that the X-Men movies and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot will in fact share the same cinematic universe. Now, he's quick to point out that there are no actual crossovers planned... so what does this actually mean?
Do villains need to rape, torture or mutilate people for us to hate them? Or maybe the reverse is true: Sometimes we can invest more in a villain, if his or her evildoing is creative and leaves more to our imaginations. Sometimes with villains, brutality is the lesser path. Here's our plea for more subtle monsters.
With a new Wolverine movie on the horizon and production on X-Men: Days of Future Past clipping along, it looks like Fox is looking to further expand its corner of the Marvel Universe with a Cable-led X-Force movie. And we may be seeing a Magneto spinoff as well.
Despite starring in the upcoming Kick-Ass 2 movie as the born-again hero Colonel Stars and Stripes, Jim Carrey has renounced his support of the movie on Twitter because of the film's level of violence.
There’s no doubt that Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s Jupiter’s Legacy, a look at superheroic family dysfunction, is the comic event of the week. Meanwhile, Atlantis has a new king, two thieves steal a curse and a vampire eats a crimelord, all in this week’s comics!
Warning: This oddly lengthy clip seems to give away a rather key moment in Kick-Ass 2's climactic finale, so maybe you don't want to watch it. Or maybe you don't want to watch it because it seems like it's trying waaaaay too hard, what with the Avengers line and the dog biting Red Mist in the balls. Either way.
Fox hasn't always done the best job making use of its Marvel Comics film properties — they appear to have just lost the rights to Daredevil, and their Fantastic Four films aren't considered classics. So it's probably good news that they've hired Mark MIllar, who's done so much to reshape how Marvel's characters are…
