War Heroes Comic Book

Since “Watched” hit theaters early this past summer and made some nice coin, studios and producers have been fighting to get other Mark Millar created comic properties. His series “Kick-Ass” is currently in production for Marv Films and Plan B. Entertainment, with Matthew Vaughn directing and Nicolas Cage and Christopher Mintz-Plasse starring.  Rumors have been swirling that Millar is developing a “Wanted” sequel and that he might be in the running to write a new Superman film trilogy.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sony and Michael De Luca (producer of “21”) will be bringing Mark Millar’s “War Heroes” to theaters. The series “centers on a U.S. military experimental program developed in light of dwindling enlistments and the expanding war on terrorism that gives ordinary soldiers superpowers. When a rogue group of the supersoldiers breaks off to form a criminal enterprise, one hero rises from their ranks to prevent catastrophic results.” The series was orignally pitched to Marvel Comics as the “Ultimates 3”, before turning into its own thing.  There is no word on whether Millar will be writing the script to the comic adaptation, or just producing with Tony Harris, the series’ artist.

G4 Network talked to Mark Millar about his new graphic novel “War Heroes”, the film adaptation of his ongoing series “Kick-Ass” by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust), and his proposed “Superman” film trilogy that he has pitched to the WB with an unknown director. The interview then talks to “War Heroes” artist Tony Harris about the upcoming book.

The “Superman” info comes in at around the 5 minute mark, and I gotta say, it sounds really interesting. The idea of a 7 hour epic “Superman” story broken up among 3 films and shot back to back to be released every year sounds like a dream come true. Millar thinks he’ll be getting word if the WB wants to go with his proposed project within two to three weeks and ideally they would shoot next summer.
