Fox is reportedly in negotiations for the rights to Starlight, an upcoming comic book series by Mark Millar. If the deal goes through, Simon Kinberg, the studio's current comic book movie overseer, will produce the film.
Starlight follows a hero who saved the universe 35 years ago, but found that no one believed his crazy story on his return to Earth. He eventually settled down, had kids, and got old, but is summoned for one last adventure when his old rocket arrives on Earth.
The comic will be published by Image in March 2014, and was previously described by Millar as akin to Flash Gordon crossed with The Dark Knight Returns.
