Mark Millar on "Wanted"

WANTED'S CREATOR ON HAVING HIS BABY TURNED INTO A BIG-BUDGET BLOCKBUSTER. 

 

“I was sitting alone in the screening room watching it, and the whole time I’m thinking, Please don’t suck! I actually couldn’t enjoy it for the first 40 minutes because I kept thinking, OK, this is where the good stuff stops and it starts getting shitty, but the director maintained it all the way through. He brought real weight to it. Even the shots at times are exactly like [the original book]. On set it was like walking around the panels of the comic. And the voice-over is exactly the captions from the comic. So I’m actually quite stunned, because I was thinking about the movie as a separate entity and I was pleased with how much it matches up. 

Originally, it was like being a sperm donor. Giving this thing up, I just provided the sperm. It was going to take on a life of its own, as far as I was concerned. But this was kind of like meeting up with the kid years later and we look identical and we run the same course. [Laughs.] It’s great.”
