Thanks to our friends at Latino Review, we've learned that Mark Millar's upcoming new comic book Starlight will be adapted for the big screen by 20th Century Fox. The first issue of Starlight will hit stands in March. It's been described as Flash Gordon meets The Dark Knight, and here's the official description:
So much for retirement! Meet Duke McQueen, a man who has long since settled down and left his days of saving the Universe and operating as the space hero everyone depended on—at least that’s what he thought. His wife long passed and his kids off embarking on their own adventures, Duke lives a quiet, solitary life until he receives an unexpected call from a distant world, calling him to action one last time.
This sounds like it should make for a really cool film franchise. I love the retroness of it, it, and if done right it could do very well.
