“Looking forward to: In 2013? Kick-Ass 2. There can be only one. Also buzzed about Superman and – the big surprise, I think – The Wolverine. The script is amazing and Mangold is such a brilliant director. Seen the first 10 mins and it looks like David Lean doing a superhero movie. This the one that’s going to surprise people. This and First Class were Year Zero for the Fox Marvel movies as far as I’m concerned.”
Millar was hired by Fox to be a creative consultant on their Marvel Properties, which after The Wolverine includes X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fantastic Four.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, The Wolverine hits theaters on July 26, 2013.
