Netflix joins the race for superhero world domination, making its first-ever publishing acquisition with Millarworld, the comics publisher behind Kingsman, Kick-Ass, and other projects spearheaded by writer Mark Millar.
The streaming company announced that it bought Millarworld on Monday. Though the terms of the transaction weren’t clear, Netflix said it will develop films, TV shows and kids’ series based on Millarworld series. Millarworld, in turn, will publish new stories under the Netflix label.
