We've already heard about Disney's Marvel and Warner Bros.' DC lineups coming to Comic-Con 2014 (whether they've been officially confirmed or not), but what about that itty-bitty superhero property over in 20th Century Fox land, 'Fantastic Four'? The cast and crew have been on location in Louisiana filming for a couple months now, but will they be jetting to San Diego to appease the fans?

Tim Story admits that he wishes he could have directed his 'Fantastic Four' movies in today's superhero movie climate. Story is quick to point at more complicated villains like Ultron and Thanos and Apocalypse; their cinematic versions all being (we assume) carefully crafted for today's audience. This is opposed to his version of Galactus in 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,' in which one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe is reduced to being a large space cloud -- something Story explains was dipping a toe into the waters of that character, instead of going all in like he'd be able to do today. Story also discusses his thoughts on the upcoming Josh Trank reboot of the Fantastic Four, a movie that, if anything, makes Story feel "old."

First and foremost, the Fantastic Four are a family. When they're not off saving the world from threats both cosmic and human, they're living together in the same building as a slightly dysfunctional but loving unit. However, director Josh Trank's upcoming reboot is looking to shake up the FF formula in some fascinating new ways, and the casting of Reg E. Cathey as the father of Johnny and Sue Storm is an interesting piece of the puzzle.

Though the major roles in the reboot of 'Fantastic Four' have been filled, the movie must do some world-building to set up the film's already dated sequel. So it's no surprise that Tim Blake Nelson is joining the cast of the film to play Harvey Elder, who will eventually (though not in the first film) become the Mole Man.

Remember that plot synopsis roaming the web a few months back stating the new 'Fantastic Four' reboot would imagine the crop of superheroes as government weapons? Director Josh Trank and 20th Century Fox have since come out to bash it for its falsity, but while we still have till 2015 to see the new vision for this comic book property, writer-producer Simon Kinberg won't leave us hanging.

One of the great sins committed by the original 'Fantastic Four' movie was how badly it botched the character of Dr. Doom, one of the best and most iconic villains in the Marvel universe. The megalomaniacal dictator of Latveria is getting another chance on the big screen thanks to the upcoming reboot, where he'll be played by Toby Kebbell. While it's too early to actually judge this latest take on Doom in any way, some newly revealed tidbits automatically make him sound better than the previous iteration.
