Last fall it was revealed that Mark Millar, the writer behind comic books like "The Ultimates," "Kick-Ass" and "Superman: Red Son," had been hired by Twentieth Century Fox as a consultant on the studio's upcoming Marvel Comics adaptations. Today, Millar himself has revealed another new development that could pave the way for a shared cinematic universe.

"Just off the phone with Fox and some excellent news," Millar posted on Twitter. "Matthew Vaughn is producing Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot!"

To be directed by Chronicle's Josh Trank, Fantastic Four is targeted for release on March 6, 2015. Vaughn, who directed 2011's X-Men: First Class, is producing the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past as well and, while nothing has been confirmed as of yet, it has been speculated that Fox could develop their Marvel properties for the same kind of crossover potential shown with Marvel's The Avengers.
