After a tortured development, it looks like the much-talked-about 'Fantastic Four' reboot is finally starting to gain some real traction. The current word is that Simon Kinberg's rewrite of the script is finally finished and going out to actors, who will soon audition in various combinations to see who clicks. Longtime fans of Marvel's first family of superheroes may want to sit down before they see who is being eyed for Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman and the Human Torch...
Welcome back! Following last week's cryptic 'House of Cards' season 2 promo featuring Kevin Spacey and his wiley rubber band, Netflix has officially doubled down on promotion of the new episodes preparing to launch on February 14. It's hunt or be hunted as Frank Underwood takes the office of the Vice President, and we have two kinds of pain for you: both an epic new trailer, and a full poster!
A few weeks ago we heard the distressing news that Netflix's 'House of Cards' season 2 would likely end the series altogether, given leading star Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright's pressing film careers, but it seems the breakout political drama may have hope after all. Netflix brass now believe a third season to be in the 'Cards,' with negotiations already underway.
Admittedly, the Netflix model remains something of a mystery in its longevity, but it seems the Emmy-nominated 'House of Cards' may face its end much sooner than we all expected. Season 2 has been confirmed to premiere in 2014, but might it prove the last we see of the Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright political drama?
The 'Fantastic Four' reboot may have gone through a tumultuous scripting process, with Simon Kinberg the latest writer brought in on the project, but with a March 2015 release looming, the cast will need to fall into place shortly if they're going to make the date. And now five new names (and two old ones) have been mentioned for the roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/Invisible Woman and Johnny Storm/The Human Torch.
