Mark Millar is a busy dude. The comic book writer who brought us such classic tales as Ultimate X-Men, The Authority, and Superman: Red Son recently signed a huge deal with Netflix. The deal entailed his own Millarworld content being utilized for TV series, comics, and movies for the streaming service.
But what does this mean for his work for the Big Two? Will the man himself ever put together another X-Men or Superman story for Marvel and DC? The Magic 8-Ball reads, “Don’t count on it,” as Millar revealed via Twitter.
“i’m full-time on staff creating TV shows, movies and comics for @netflix and loving every pico-second. No plans to ever do DC or Marvel again!”
Ouch! At least try to soften the blow, why don’t ya? He could at least say he has no plans to do so “for the time being?” Of course, it doesn’t really matter too much. Millar has made a name for himself with his own original content for some year. Under his Millarworld banner, he’s published such work as Wanted and Kick-Ass, both of which have since been adapted into films.
As such, it’s not as though our need for Millar-style stories isn’t being met. If anything, having it applied to more original concepts is all the more wonderful, as it gives him a real chance to flex his creativity outside of character restraints.
