Mark Millar wants John Cena to be 'Superior'
Comic book writer Mark Millar has worked on some of the world’s most iconic superheroes, from Superman to The Avengers. His work has influenced everything from television to movies – in addition to making contributions in Marvel’s cinematic universe, he’s the mastermind behind “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Wanted” and “Kick-Ass.” And now he has his sights set on John Cena to star in his next film, “Superior.”
Millar tweeted that after watching Cena’s performance in “Trainwreck,” he put in a request for the Cenation leader.
Cena appears to be intrigued by the ideas as he followed Millar on Twitter.
New draft for Superior script this week, Matthew producing & a perfect director lined up. Thanks for the follow, @JohnCena. Let's do this!— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) September 26, 2016
“Superior,” a comic series created by Millar and artist Lenil Francis Yu, focuses on a boy diagnosed with multiple sclerosis who meets an alien monkey that grants him one wish. Rather than wish for a cure, the boy wishes to become his favorite superhero, Superior.
