Hickman describes as “a big mistake” that Marvel comics are inspired by the MCU

With a view to the launch of his new comics of the X-Men, the writer Jonathan Hickman He took the opportunity to reflect on the relationship of Marvel Comics publications and his successful adaptations to the big screen by Marvel Studios.

In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, the author behind sagas such as “Infinity” and several numbers from the regular series of The Avengers and The Fantastic Four, revealed that he does not agree with the tendency of some creators of imitate what the MCU films presented in their stories.

“I think one of the biggest mistakes that some people make in Marvel Comics is that we are reactive to what they are doing in Marvel movies “, said Hickman. “We should not be taking our creative ideas from the direction they are taking things in the movies. That goes against the point. “

Hickman's work in the Marvel publications has already passed from the pages to the screen, highlighting the incorporation of The Black Order both in Avengers: Infinity War like in Avengers: Endgame.

In that sense, the author firmly believes that the work of the creators of comics does not have to respond to what happens in the movies, but must point to create original stories that, if they prove to be good, will eventually end up in the movies.

“They have a billion dollars to play, and we do not. You can not compete in that matter, and you should not, “ Hickman commented. “My argument has been (that) should always be far ahead of that. All that is being extracted from the source material. It goes back to, are you being destructive or are you a contribution? If you are a contribution and you are in the great books, it is inevitable that some of those things will be used. “

Thanks to his work in comics, Hickman has been recognized with special thanks in the credits of Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther, in addition to the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. For what the author trusts in his work with the X-Men could be part of the adventures of the mutants when they join the MCU. Although you will not be disappointed if that does not happen.

“When the Marvel films take the X-Men and we have done interesting things and want to use them, it will be amazing”, concluded the author. “If they do not, then they do not. One makes his work dispensable, the others make it invaluable. I like to have value in my work. “
