NEWSARAMA: A lot of what made your reputation as a creator were works that had that darkness, that shock value. Do you feel that’s something that you, as a creator, are moving away from, or in what’s becoming more popular in different media?

MILLAR: Yeah, I think things shift – a Batman movie that comes out in 2008 is going to be very different from one that works in 1966, or a Batman movie that works in 2016. Culturally, I think we’re in a very, very different place from 2008 right now, and the darkness and realism that worked brilliantly in 2008 just doesn’t work today.

At the moment, I think that as a culture, we’re more optimistic and forward-thinking than we were eight years ago. The financial crash of 2008 was, I think, a paradigm shift, really, in the culture. I think after that, we started to look more for things that were entertaining. The Avengers hit that zeitgeist very well; Star Wars: The Force Awakens has hit it brilliantly.

I think people are looking for a good time right now, in a way they weren’t looking for 10 or 12 years ago. So when I was doing books like The Ultimates or The Authority or something like that, they were very much of their moment. And the reason they were so popular was because that’s what I, as a member of the audience, I was personally looking for at the time. But what I’m looking for now is stuff that’s like Huck or Empress or whatever.
