New FANTASTIC FOUR Posters; Cast Talk Haters!


Twentieth Century Fox has released a new banner and four character posters for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four!

An origin story said to be inspired largely by the “Ultimate Fantastic Four” comics (the first arc of which was written by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar with Joe Kubert illustrating), Fantastic Four offers a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team. The story centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

Speaking to MTV, the cast of Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot film reflected on the early apprehension that the movie received from fans.

“I was very surprised at first, before any trailers were out, how negative people were about it without seeing anything,” said Kate Mara, who plays the Invisible Woman, Sue Storm, in the film.

A lot of that apprehension was likely due to Fox’s previous two Fantastic Four movies, which were not well-loved by fans. Mara noted that, once director Josh Trank’s vision for the franchises was put out there for audiences to see, people began to come around.

“Then, that very quickly changed when we actually showed some footage,” she said. “So that was a nice thing.”



“Marvel’s First Family” will include Whiplash‘s Miles Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), “House of Cards” star Kate Mara as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), Fruitvale Station and Chronicle‘s Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and The Adventures of Tintin‘s Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing). Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ Toby Kebbell will also star as Doctor Doom alongside Reg E. Cathey (“The Wire”) as as Dr. Franklin Storm and Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man.

Fantastic Four features a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and is set to hit the big screen August 7.
