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.

    X-Men works better in a self contained universe. Not everything needs to go the cash in route of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. The X movies are bad enough already, you don’t need to streamline them even further just to jam in more properties.

    I’d be willing to put money down that FF with X-men will be exactly as interesting to watch on film as it is in the comics. Meaning: Not very interesting. At. All.
