Mark Millar calls himself the Joss Whedon of Fox’s superhero movies

Mark Millar is really, really excited about his new gig as 20th Century Fox’s Marvel creative consultant. He’s already responded once to his recently-announced job, but during a new interview he discussed how he thinks his position will positively effect the superhero movies Fox is putting out.

“The team who is running the show over there now I’m very comfortable with. I actually really like everything that they’re doing, and they recognise more than anyone the mistakes that they’ve made in the past and they just want to do right by the fans,” he told Word Balloon (via /Film). Hiring myself was a first step in a number of things that they’re planning and they just really want to be respectful to the material I think. ‘X-Men: First Class,’ which I absolutely loved, just feels like planting the flag for what they’re planning to do over the next few years.”

He continued, “If there’s a comparable job, I guess it’s probably what Joss [Whedon] is doing over with Marvel Studios. It’s very, very exciting. Just as a fan, to be at the heart of something like this is wonderful.”

Millar also discussed some of the upcoming properties Fox is working on. Films like “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “The Wolverine” and even Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” are all movie’s we’re really excited about, and Millar said we have a right to be.

“Hiring Josh Trank for ‘Fantastic Four’… it could just not be more different than the first ‘Fantastic Four’ movie from what I’ve seen so far. Even just as a fan, I’m very, very excited by the level of talent they have on the directors side of things,” he said. “I can’t say too much about it right now, but ‘The Wolverine’ has only just started shooting really, I mean it’s been shooting for a few weeks now. I really do like it and I’m really impressed by it. ‘Days of Future Past,’ which is being written at the moment, is the next one up and at the same time, Fantastic Four is being written right now.”

Do you think that Millar will be good for these Fox properties? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
