Mark Millar Shares His Thoughts On Wolverine's Role In Future X-MEN Movies

20th Century Fox creative consultant Mark Millar talks here about ensuring that Wolverine isn't overused in any future X-Men movies (including Days of Future Past) and shares his thoughts on The Wolverine screenplay and more.


"When I got this job they’d started shooting a couple of weeks," Mark Millar told SciFi now in a recent interview when asked about his involvement with James Mangold's The Wolverine. "The screenplay to The Wolverine is really, really terrific – I’m really, really delighted with it. Obviously the casting’s all be really good, the director’s brilliant." However, when he was quizzed about whether the character works best on the big screen as part of a team or by himself, the comic book writer looked back on his time at Marvel in order to explain how he think Wolverine's solo adventures can mix with those he goes on as part of the X-Men. "You know, I wrote the Wolverine comic twice – I did the Old Man Logan story and Wolverine: Enemy Of The State – and I don’t think it detracts having individual Wolverine adventures from the X-Men. He’s like a lone wolf character, he disappears and does his own thing sometimes and then he comes back and hangs out at the mansion, so it does feel quite natural to for him to be in these movies."

Many fans have found fault with the amount of attention Wolverine received in the first three X-Men movies. This is something that Millar can relate to, and he had this to say about finding the right balance of how the character is used. "You don’t want to have him out there all the time, because I think if you’ve got him in X-Men and Wolverine movies and they’re all running at the same time, it’s a little bit too much but as long as you’re smart with it and there’s a lot of other characters to explore as well. The X-Men universe is about the same size as the Marvel universe in terms of the number of titles it sustains at any one time, so there’s a ton of stuff to play with there and a lot of characters I’d like to explore there too." Do you agree with Millar's comments? Would you like to see more Wolverine solo movies or is it more interesting to see him fighting alongside his fellow mutants?
