So it seems Superior will join the other Mark Millar-penned titles that are currently in development at Fox, including Starlight, Nemesis and Kindergarten Heroes, and their most recent adaptation The Secret Service.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Twentieth Century Fox has picked up the Mark Millar comic series Superior to develop as a feature film. Matthew Vaughn will produce the film, which is currently looking for a screenwriter. Vaughn directed The Secret Service (he also had a hand in creating the comic) and is a frequent Millar collaborator. He directed 2010’s Kick-Ass and his company, MARV Films, is developing an adaptation of Millar’s American Jesus miniseries.
Created by Millar and Leinil Francis Yu in 2010, the Superior series is officially described as follows:
“Simon Pooni had it all going for him – plenty of friends at school and good looks, and his coach called him one of the most talented basketball players he’s ever seen. But that was when he could still move his legs. Now, he’s living with multiple sclerosis, missing all the little things he used to take for granted, and escaping into the world of movies and comics with his best friend. Then…SUPERIOR entered his life.”
