'The Wolverine' is Fox's 'Iron Man', says Mark Millar

By
The Wolverine will do for Fox what Iron Man did for Marvel Studios, according to Mark Millar.

The studio's creative consultant has hinted that the Hugh Jackman-fronted project could pave the way for a shared universe series featuring its Marvel properties.

"I felt like Iron Man was really the beginning of something for the Marvel Studios movies, and The Wolverine will be a similar starting point to build a lot off of for the Fox movies," he told CBR.

Millar also revealed that Fox, which holds the screen rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four, is currently discussing as many as ten comic books projects.

"X-Force or Cable or Deadpool - all these amazing characters are things we haven't really gotten to yet," he added. "You go to any convention in the world, and you'll see 20 people dressed as Deadpool.

"In a lot of ways, these are Marvel's coolest characters, so I want to remind people of that and build on what we already have. I think there's a great foundation, and just from basic conversations, we've come up with ten movies we could do.

"These things cost $150 million each to make, so we have to pick and choose what we want to do."

The Wolverine will be released on July 25, 2013 in the UK, and July 26, 2013 in the US.
