Comic book writer Mark Millar—known for his work on Ultimate X-Men, The Ultimates, Kick-Ass, Ultimate Fantastic Four, and more—has agreed to a deal with Netflix that will bring two shows and three movies to the platform.
The announcement comes a year after Neflix acquired Millar's comic book publishing company Millarworld in August 2017. Since then, the streaming platform has been developing two series based on his work called Jupiter's Legacy and American Jesus as well as three movies: Empress, Huck, and Sharkey The Bounty Hunter.
Netflix made the announcement Tuesday alongside the rollout of a new social channel called NX, which will be used to promote science fiction and fantasy.
“My wife Lucy and I are eleven months into our jobs at Netflix and it’s everything we hoped for to the power of ten," Millar says in a press release. "To see a movie based on your work every couple of years is incredibly exciting, but to see them all happening at once like this and with talent this high-end is just off the scale. These are writers and directors I’ve privately been sending fan-mail to over the last eighteen months so to be working with them all is just enormously exciting. This really is the greatest creative environment I’ve ever worked in. I can’t wait to switch on my computer every morning."
