Mark Millar Questions Avengers and X-Men Crossover; Bad For Fox
Mark Millar seems to be on the offensive as of late.
Following Mark Millar stating he thinks Thanos won't be any good in The Avengers: Infinity War, now the creator of Kick-Ass and Kingsman tweets out that the deal is good for Disney but bad for Fox, though Millar does say he hopes everything works out while at the same time stating he is not really looking forward to an Avengers and X-Men crossover.
Millar also echoes Logan director James Mangold's sentiments that the Fox and Disney merger might see less movies made.
Mark Millar is also known for writing for Marvel Comics: The Avengers, Civil War and Old Man Logan, and he recently signed a deal to develop his own comic book properties at Netflix.
Check out the tweets:
Good for Disney, bad for Fox as extra levels of bureaucracy creep into creative. Also bad for talent as agents have one less studio bidding for projects. I see zero upside to this, beautiful gambles like Deadpool never happening at Disney. https://t.co/pGJjDbC8YN— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) December 14, 2017
X-Men/ Wolvie hit-rate very good at Fox, 6 out of 9 working well. But they're tired now & need a recharge. This is one area Disney could help as it's a fresh start. https://t.co/S2uCvrsgpq— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) December 14, 2017
I think I'm also alone in not really caring about seeing all the franchises crossing over. Too many characters just becomes impenetrable to a mainstream audience. Marvel's simplicity has been a great strength.— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) December 14, 2017
A final thought: If Marvel had X-Men & FF 5 years ago would they have made Guardians or Ant-Man? Disney will only make specific number per year. I hope the audience doesn't lose more unique projects now.— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) December 14, 2017
Regardless, I have close friends at both studios and hope this works out well (just as I wished my Marvel publishing pals well when Disney took them over in 2009).— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) December 14, 2017
