After picking up the property in 2014, 20th Century Fox is now moving forward with a film adaptation of Mark Millar & Leinel Francis Yu’s Superior. Variety is reporting that Fox has brought on the writing duo of Brandon and Phillip Murphy to adapt the comic book series. Millar has had a number of hit adaptations of his work hit the screens over the last few years which include Wanted, Kick-Ass and last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Superior, which will be produced by Tarquin Pack and Matthew Vaughn, focuses on an athletic 12-year-old boy named Simon Pooni who is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The boy is granted one wish from a talking alien monkey, which allows him to become Superior, his favorite superhero. However, there’s a major twist to this story that we won’t spoil for you here.
