It began to be a bit of a controversy, so apparently someone at Fox gave one of them the other's phone number. They finally had their first chat -- just yesterday, as it turns out. Their tweets confirm this.
It seems clear that any input Millar is going to have on DOFP comes after the script and casting are done, so he can't have any real impact on it. The same is probably true of The Wolverine, which is in the can already. But at least Millar looks less like a poser now that he's actually spoken to Singer at last.
It's certainly no coincedence that Millar "spoke to Singer" yesterday after all the borderline trash talk that's been going on from Singer. Some exec is trying to save face somewhere.
Will this work? Maybe. Hell, maybe it will be awesome...but considering what we've heard so far and Fox's abysmal track record with Marvel properties (they are 3 for 9 with making good films so far) I don't have a lot of faith just yet.
