Mark Millar is a New York Times bestselling author, Hollywood producer, and now president of his own division at Netflix. His DC Comics work includes the seminal Superman: Red Son. At Marvel Comics, he created The Ultimates, which was selected by Time Magazine as the comic book of the decade, and described by screenwriter Zak Penn as his major inspiration for The Avengers movie.
Millar also created Wolverine: Old Man Logan and Civil War. Civil War was the basis of the Captain America: Civil War movie, and Old Man Logan was the inspiration for Fox’s Logan. Mark has been an executive producer on all adaptations of his books, and worked as a creative consultant to Fox Studios on their Marvel slate of movies.
Millar’s creator-owned books Kick-Ass, Wanted, and Kingsman: The Secret Service have all been adapted into hugely successful Hollywood franchises. Since selling his publishing company to Netflix in 2017, Millar also signed on to exclusively create comics, TV series, and movies for the streaming service. Adaptations of Jupiter’s Legacy, The Magic Order, Reborn, Sharkey the Bounty Hunter, American Jesus, Empress, and Super Crooks are among those currently being made right now, with Jupiter’s Legacy the first to be streamed.
