List Rules Vote up the Millarworld movies and shows that you can't wait to be on Netflix.

Mark Millar is one of the most prolific comic book writers working today, and a great deal of his work has been adapted into television shows and films. You're probably already familiar with Kick-Ass, Wanted, and Kingsman, but there are many more of his books from his company, Millarworld Limited that have found their way to an adaptation of one form or another.

Millar's works have dominated the independent comic book market, but now that Netflix has acquired Millarworld, more and more of his works like The Magic Order and several others are being made into shows and movies. Fans of Millar's comics could do little more than celebrate the news of Netflix's acquisition of Millarworld, and 2020 promises to let fans reap the benefits with these potentially amazing adaptations.

Check back as more Millar projects are announced and you can vote on those too.
