Mark Millar Talks KICK-ASS 2, His Role at 20th Century Fox, Future Projects, and More

     July 28, 2013


While at Comic-Con last weekend, I sat down with Mark Millar for an exclusive video interview.  We talked about what he’s most excited for fans to see in Kick-Ass 2 (with a special nod to each of the film’s lead actors), seeing Mindy (Chloë Grace Moretz) dealing with high school drama as an outsider, how long it took to get the sequel made, leaving Marvel, his role at 20th Century Fox and how the studio is building up towards something big—Millar says that Fox has 5-10 “gold franchises” with their comic properties, especially the X-Men and the related universe.  Hit the jump to watch.
