Back in November, we reported that Mark Millar signed on to serve as a creative consultant for 20th Century Fox's slate of superhero movies, including their Fantastic Four reboot. Today, Mark Millar spoke quite highly of director Josh Trank, revealing there will be things in this new adventure that fans have never seen before in a superhero movie.
The Fantastic Four reboot is 'phenomenal' according to Mark Millar
"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."
He also spoke about his first meeting with Josh Trank, comparing the characters in Fantastic Four to the filmmaker's first movie, Chronicle.
""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 contemporarizing it. 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
We still haven't heard anything on the casting front regarding the Fantastic Four reboot.
The Fantastic Four comes to theaters June 19th, 2015 and stars Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Tim Blake Nelson, Reg E. Cathey. The film is directed by Josh Trank.
