‘Fantastic Four’ Reboot Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen?
None of the ‘Fantastic Four‘ movies made have been any good but that doesn’t mean they’re going to stop trying. Fox is actively working on a ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot with ‘Chronicle’ director Josh Trank and the man behind all of Fox’s superhero movies says it will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Fox “creative consultant” Mark Millar is not known for mincing words. He is frequently susceptible to hyperbole and his latest comments on ‘Fantastic Four’ are no different. The comic creator spoke with SciFiNow and said:
[‘Fantastic Four’ will be] jaw-dropping in the same way you feel when you saw ‘Alien’ for the first time. There’s some moments in this – not to be specific – that are actually gonna be phenomenal on screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before.
‘Fantastic Four’ will be like ‘Alien?’ Bold claim Mr. Millar. And considering how many superhero movies we’ve seen over the years, that we’ll see something in ‘Fantastic Four’ that we had never seen before seems unlikely, but we’re still curious to see what Trank has up his sleeves. Sadly, we have a lot of time to wait to see how truthful these claims are. ‘Fantastic Four’ doesn’t hit theaters until March 6, 2015.
What do you think the Jessica Alba version of ‘Fantastic Four’ did wrong and what do you think Josh Trank should do with his new version? Maybe more importantly, who should star as Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm, Human Torch and The Thing?
