Millar Will Give Vaughn First Shot At Superior Film

Mark Millar is just about to start releasing the first issue of his new series Superior. The comic follows a teen who has M.S. and has a superhero alter-ego similar to a mix of Superman, Thor and Shazam. Like Nemesis it's already caught the attention of Hollywood. Millar said that he's gotten offers for the film from studios but will give the first crack to friend, director Matthew Vaughn. It's likely since Vaughn hasn't been eager to jump straight into Kick-Ass 2 he could opt-out for the power-based superhero film.

"Sent Superior 1 to some buds last night and two informal offers from studios already. This is looking good."

"I've promised Matthew Vaughn a first pass at Superior though. We're going to talk next week whether it's this, KA2 or something else next."

"Vaughn and I will be doing lots of head-scratching between Superior and Kick-Ass 2 next week."

Abraxas the villain of the series is described by Millar as a mix of Darkseid, Brainiac and Darth Vader.
