Recently we heard that Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn was looking to direct another comic book property from Mark Millar in the form of Superior, a superhero tale about a comic book-idolizing boy afflicted with multiple sclerosis who is given the chance to become a superhero named Superior. However, Heat Vision has word that the X-Men: First Class filmmaker also holds the movie rights to a new comic book just unveiled this week. Created by Vaughn, Millar and Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons, the new venture is called The Secret Service, but so far plot details are currently under tight wraps. Read on!
Apparently Vaughn is going to choose between Superior and The Secret Service as his next film which has the filmmaker looking for total creative control again after working under close studio watch for the aforementioned X-Men prequel. In addition, for all you fans of Millar and Vaughn out there, you just might be able to become a part of comic book and movie history since Millar is again auctioning off the name of the super-villain in The Secret Service. The same thing happened with the name Dave Lizewski being the real identity of Kick-Ass, so this is nothing new, and the proceeds will go to benefit S.t Bartholomew's Primary School in the United Kingdom. You can check out that auction right here, and stay tuned as more information on these projects comes to light.
