Supercrooks, the new comic book series from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted), hits shelves this Wednesday, and to whet your appetites he’s collaborated with Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalando for a video trailer.
The book, co-created and drawn by Leinil Yu (Superior), is about a group of supervillains head to Europe to pull off to work their evil, figuring that that there are too many superheroes in America these days. Millar describes it as, “X-Men meets Ocean’s 11”.
Early plans for a film are underway (of course). Nacho Vigalondo, the Spanish filmmaker behind 2007’s Timecrimes and 2011’s Extraterrestrial, is attached to direct a film version with a script co-written by Vigalondo and Millar. Marc Platt, who produced Wanted, is on board to produce.
