Millar praises the upcoming films but warns of the overuse of the character

Mark Millar has been chatting about The Fantastic Four reboot recently, as he seems to be settling into his role as creative consultant for Marvel properties at Fox, but the focus seems to be shifting to Fox's next Marvel property scheduled for release, The Wolverine.

Chatting to SciFiNow, he said that “When I got the job they had started shooting a couple of weeks, but the screenplay to The Wolverine is really, really, terrific. I'm really, really, delighted with it. Obviously the casting has all been really good, the director is brilliant.”

He continued; “I don't think it detracts having individual Wolverine adventures from the X-Men. He's like a lone wolf character, he disappears and does his own thing sometimes and then he comes back and hangs out at the mansion, so it does feel quite natural for him to be in these movies.”

Millar does go on to warn of the overuse of Wolverine in the X-Men universe, though. “You don't want to have him out there all the time, because I think if you've got him in X-Men and Wolverine movies and they're all running at the same time, it's a little bit too much but as you're smart with it then there's a lot of other characters to explore.”

The Wolverine is set for release on July 26th 2013
