Fantastic Four Reboot Will Contain Things 'You Haven't Seen in a Superhero Movie Before'
January 9, 2013
Little is known about the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four at Twentieth Century Fox Film, but the person most likely to know something, and spill the beans a little, is Fox creative consultant Mark Millar.
"From what I've seen and from talking to him – he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well – he's contemporising it," Millar said in an interview with SciFiNow. "I think he's just making it work for the screen – he's a great storyteller.
"Chronicle, if you think about it, was similar to Fantastic Four in that it was a bunch of people who were transformed into something more than human – that turned out almost his calling card to come and do something like Fantastic Four.
"What I wasn't expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen – I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know? The Ridley Scott moments, and the Fantastic Four really are 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."
The film is slated for a March 6, 2015 release date. Michael Green and Jeremy Slater wrote the script. Are you excited about the Fantastic Four reboot?
