Mark Millar announces superhero picture for 2010

Mark Millar has announced his plans to direct a superhero film next year.

The scribe told fans through his website “This is one of several big surprises planned for next year and you’ll hear a bit more about this in February when we start to release details.

“What is it? Who is it about? Well, that’s all a secret for now, but I learned a lot from Kick-Ass and love having the same creative freedom I have with comics when I work in cinema.”

He added: “I couldn’t be more excited. More as it happens, but this might just beat out War Heroes and American Jesus as my follow-ups to the Wanted and Kick-Ass movies.

“Have two other pictures about to go into development (and Wanted and Kick-Ass 2, of course), but I think you need to scare the hell out of yourself every once in a while, and something totally new like directing should do the trick.”
