There is no doubt that FOX’s upcoming Fantastic Four movie reboot has split opinion. From the recently announced cast, to the rumoured change to the character’s origins, the internet community has made it’s opinions known.
Some fans may be interested at this quote from producer Matthew Vaughn, from his recent interview with Empire magazine:
“It’s a total reboot, that’s for sure…It’s got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It’s not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it’s made of polystyrene. And it’s not a comedy.“
The hint at a slightly darker tone may be welcomed by fans, after the slightly hammy comedy of the last two Fantastic Four movies, but it would be easy to speculate on how FOX plan to portray the heroes. Mr. Fantastic is indeed a ‘stretchy guy’, so we can’t help but wonder if the studio are looking at a different take on the characters?
The Fantastic Four reboot is set for release on June 19, 2015, and will star Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm. Josh Trank will direct the movie.
