Ever since the massive box-office and critical success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, a followup has been inevitable, but whether we’d see Colin Firth in The Kingsman sequel has been up in the air. Comic book creator/writer Mark Millar hopes director Matthew Vaughn and screenwriter Jane Goldman find a good way to bring Colin Firth back for The Kingsman sequel.

While Fox hasn’t officially confirmed anything, it’s widely believed that the next Wolverine movie will be based on the Old Man Logan comic book arc written by Mark Millar. Which, of course, raises its own set of questions. Namely, what are they going to do about the fact that most of the characters in it aren’t owned by 20th Century Fox?
Millar, who serves as a creative consultant for Fox, isn’t worried. In an interview, he explains how the Old Man Logan storyline could work on the big screen, without using Marvel Cinematic Universe characters like Hawkeye and the Hulk.

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.
Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »
Kingsman: The Secret Service was a hit earlier this year for 20th Century Fox and, very quickly, rumors of a sequel began to bubble. Two people who were a little surprised at that were series co-creators Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn, the latter of whom directed the film. Millar recently said while there was a desire to do it and talks about it, things weren’t as concrete as the Internet made it seem. For example, he hadn’t written a comic sequel and had no plans too. But that’s seemingly been solved.
In a new interview, Vaughn revealed he’s currently writing Kingsman 2 and if the script is deemed good enough, he’ll make it. Below, read the Matthew Vaughn Kingsman 2 quote and find out how Millar envisions the sequel. Read More »

We spoke to Millar, not so much to look ahead, but to take a deep dive into that project’s transition from page to screen. How is Millar’s vision get reimagined for the big screen? Why are major changes made in the translation?
Then, of course, he told us about some general ideas he’s had about a potential Kingsman 2 and the madness that sees his Marvel story Civil War being made into a movie. Below, read our Kingsman Mark Millar interview. Read More »

It was bound to happen, and now there’s some news: a Kingsman sequel is in the works at Fox. Given that the Matthew Vaughn adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ The Secret Service comic series was a surprise hit both at home and even more so internationally, to the tune of a $400m overall haul as of the close of this past weekend, a sequel makes sense. But it is still early in the film’s development, so we’re left wondering whether or not Vaughn will return. Read More »

Even if you don’t read comic books you probably know comic creator Mark Millar from his many film adaptations such as Wanted, Kick-Ass and most recently Kingsman: The Secret Service. It seems like almost every Millar comic book gets optioned for the big screen these days, the last being Starlight, which has Star Wars spinoff screenwriter Gary Whitta work writing.
That a new Millar book would be immediately optioned is so obvious that the latest Millar comic Chrononauts, which was released just this week, featured a letter in the “letters to the editors” pages speculating about the possible feature film adaptation. And days later we learn a movie is indeed in the works at Universal. More details on the Chrononauts movie adaptation after the jump.

Now that the buzz surrounding Spectre has calmed down a bit, it’s time to check in on 2015’s other action-packed thriller about a suave British spy with a taste for finely tailored suits and outrageously advanced gadgets. Fox has just released a new red-band trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as a secret agent who recruits a street kid (Taron Egerton) into the service.
Matthew Vaughn is directing the film based on a Mark Millar comic, and we all remember how much fun we had the last time that happened. Kingsman: The Secret Service seems to be cut from the same crazy, bloody, “fuck”-filled cloth. Watch the Kingsman The Secret Service red band trailer after the jump. Read More »
