We know Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar was previously tapped by Twentieth Century Fox to become the Creative Consultant on their Marvel properties in order to help create a cohesive universe. Since taking on the position, he's spoken openly about his thoughts on the Fantastic Four reboot and the X-Men universe, but what is his role in next year's Days of Future Past? When his good pal Matthew Vaughn was attached to direct the project, it was all but assumed he would be playing a role in bridging the original trilogy with First Class. One that could potentially reboot the series without affecting the original trilogy's storyline, similar to what J.J. Abrams did with the Star Trek reboot. So what is Millar's role now that Vaughn is out and Bryan Singer is helming Days of Future Past? Bleeding Cool recently spoke to Singer who revealed that Millar has NO involvement with the project and he isn't clear what Miller's role with the studio is saying, "All I know is that I have my own specific beliefs about how to take this universe forward. I started with the first X-Men, then First Class and now I am combining them and I think it could go further than that and I have some ideas about that, so perhaps he should chat to me at some point." I think that's good advice, especially since the X-Men franchise is arguably Fox's most important superhero property and Millar himself has said that the X-Men universe alone is as big as the rest of the Marvel Universe. If you're going to potentially have a Fantastic Four/X-Men crossover movie someday, Days of Future Past seems like a logical place to start to build a shared universe, but it looks like Millar's involvement with any Fox Marvel properties won't be seen until the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot. So are you surprised Millar isn't involved with Days of Future Past and does his lack of involvement change your excitement level for the film? We'd love to hear your thoughts, so go ahead and leave a comment below or you can hit us up on Twitter @ClevverMovies. I'm Erin White, thanks for watching!
