Well, it looks like the 'Fantastic Four' reboot may not make that proposed March 6, 2015 release date. 'Chronicle' director Josh Trank's take on Marvel's first family of superheroes is currently undergoing a major rewrite from screenwriter Simon Kinberg, which makes us really wonder what the heck is going on behind the scenes of this movie.
Not content to stand idly by while Marvel and Warner Bros./DC Comics build sweeping superhero universes that span multiple movies, 20th Century Foxnow acknowledges that the 'Fantastic Four' and 'X-Men' films share the same cinematic universe. Does this mean the two teams could crossover in the future?
Miles Teller is proving to be quite the hot ticket right now. The charismatic star of 'The Spectacular Now' and the upcoming young-adult movie 'Divergent' has seemingly charmed the folks behind the 'Fantastic Four' reboot, as he's now being eyed for the leading role of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic.
Flame on, 'Fantastic Four'! It looks like the casting search for 20th Century Fox's upcoming reboot of the Marvel property is well underway. Just the other day, word was that 'Girls' star Allison Williams was on the (very early) short list for Susan Storm (aka Invisible Woman) and now we've learned that the studio is looking to fill the role of the Human Torch with someone from the 'Chronicle' world.
For years, comic writer extraordinaire and 'Kick-Ass' creator Mark Millar was a man whose word you always took with a grain (or a pound) of salt. All of that changed when Fox put Millar at the helm of their superhero franchises, using him to help create a unified vision (see: Marvel Studios and Disney). Now Millar's words carry some actual weight! So when he says that 'X-Men: First Class' director Matthew Vaughn is producing Josh Trank's upcoming 'Fantastic Four' reboot, we believe him!
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.
The stars are aligning for the upcoming reboot of the 'Fantastic Four' franchise. First, the film found a young, hungry and talented director in Josh Trank, whose 'Chronicle' was one of the surprise hits of 2012. Then it landed a talented screenwriting team in Jeremy Slater and Michael Green. Of course, the whole thing has to actually work if it's going to be any good, but now we know how long these guys will have to make it work. The official release date for the new 'Fantastic Four' is...
'The Amazing Spider-Man' has cleared $150 Million domestically and $350 worldwide, which means that studios can feel safe about rebooting their superhero films. And with 'The Avengers' and Spidey kicking box office butt, Fox is looking to move forward on rebooting 'Fantastic Four' and 'Daredevil.'
