(Cbr) 20th Century Fox has denied the "Fantastic Four" rumor circulated Friday afternoon by Bleeding Cool. The report stated the studio was scrapping existing plans for their reboot of Marvel's "Fantastic Four" -- including director Josh Trank, the script by Simon Kinberg and, potentially, the recently announced cast. A representative for the studio told Cbr News succinctly, "This is not true." Following an earlier denial published by ScreenCrush, Bleeding Cool updated their story to state "we remain confident in our source." The denial to Cbr News came after both Bleeding Cool's initial report and subsequent update. A "Fantastic Four" reboot has been in the works at Fox for years, following the previous 2005 and 2007 live-action films. Trank's involvement was confirmed in July 2012, and Kinberg has been on board as a writer and producer since last October. Last month, reports revealed the film's titular foursome: Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards, »

The director-writer-producer told Total Film magazine that “Apocalypse,” which will deal with the notion of ancient mutants, but be set in the 1980s, will be the most destructive movie in the franchise.
“‘Apocalypse’ will have more of the mass destruction that ‘X-Men’ films, to date, have not relied upon,” Singer said. “There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle.”
The helmer also hinted that the pic could feature younger versions of familiar characters.
“That’ll be fun to show the audience,” he told the mag. “I call these movies in-between-quels. It’s a mind-f**k sometimes in terms of where things fall in the timeline. »

Marvel Studios and Sony have dominated much of the headlines this week, flooding the internet with promotional material for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but now Fox has moved to remind us that they have their own superhero movie incoming in X-Men: Days of Future Past, releasing a couple of new promo images featuring Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Bishop (Omar Sy), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), and William Stryker (Josh Helman)....
"We're going to deal the the notion of ancient mutants - the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago,” Singer tells Total Film (via Cbm) “But it'll be a contemporary movie - well, it'll »

20th Century Fox has been moving fast to get its "Fantastic Four" reboot into theaters by 2015. Now that the film is about to go in front of the cameras, Bleeding Cool is reporting that the studio fired director Josh Trank (Chronicle), writer Simon Kinberg, and the entire cast. This sounds completely crazy, but the website claims the news comes from a very reliable source. Plus, Fox was working on a "Daredevil" reboot before giving up and letting the rights revert back to Marvel. So who knows whether the studio lost confidence in "Fantastic Four" as well. Many other sites have come forward denying the story, but Bleeding Cool replied by stating that if Fox doesn't want stories about how it's looking to replace its director, the studio should stop approaching other directors. »
Ever since X-Men: Apocalypse was announced back in December, fans have been wondering when this highly-anticipated sequel might be set. Today, director Bryan Singer provided an answer to that burning question in an interview with Total Film, revealing that the movie will be set in the 1980s, and that it will feature the most mass destruction of any X-Men movie.
"We're going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants - the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it'll be a contemporary movie - well, it'll take place in the '80s... The '80s is a period now - it's hard for me to believe that!" He continued, "Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. »
In a rather shocking yet unconfirmed development, 20th Century Fox has reportedly fired director Josh Trank from The Fantastic Four, while also discarding the screenplay from writer Simon Kinberg, less than six months before production is scheduled to begin.
Bleeding Cool reports that the studio is actively searching for a new writer and director, and that there are also casting issues as well. We reported last month that Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm/The Human Torch), Miles Teller (Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (Sue Storm/The Invisible Girl) and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm/The Thing) officially signed on after months of casting speculation.
It isn't known if these "issues" refer to these actors who have already signed on, or other characters that have yet to be cast. We reported earlier this week that Domhnall Gleeson, Eddie Redmayne, Sam Riley and Toby Kebbell were the front runners to play the villainous Dr. »
According to sources, Fox has hit a wall of problems with the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot and is thinking about changing up all of the major players with just 6 months to go before shooting commences...And apparently they want to stay on schedule.
Fantastic Four is supposed to see the reboot start shooting from Fox in less than 6 months. That is unless recent rumors are true.
According to the rumor Fox is dumping the director, writer, and having casting issues to top everything else off. Director John Trank and script writer Simon Kinberg are the only two names listed by Bleeding Cool. They go on to mention that casting issues are to be had as well, but don't list who or why.
A lot of fans already had some issues with casting choices by Fox, and this caused comic fans to press even harder for Marvel to get rights back. »

Well, did anyone see this coming? Bleeding Cool have just posted the following, claiming that The Fantastic Four may be in even more trouble than we imagined. "I’ve learnt from a rather well-connected source that, as the title says, Fox has dumped Fantastic Four director John Trank and the script by Simon Kinberg and are actively looking for replacements. Six months before they are due to shoot, for 2015 release. Oh, yes, and there are now casting issues from the studio too." Now, I know it would be easy to dismiss this as nonsense, but Bleeding Cool aren't the kind of site to run a story like this without being pretty certain of their sources. They've also got a lot right in the past, so it's a safe bet that there's something to this. If so, we could be looking at two outcomes: Fox lets the rights revert to Marvel »

X-Men Days of Future Past: The making of Bryan Singer's »
Director Bryan Singer is returning to the X-Men franchise this May with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and audiences are apparently quite eager to see what the superhero team-up has in store. Essentially serving as Fox’s answer to Marvel’s The Avengers, the film combines the original X-Men cast with the X-Men: First Class crew and involves time-travel, alternate timelines, and Sentinels. While many are certainly looking forward to the film, Singer already has his eye on the next movie, as he’s currently breaking the story on the Dofp follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse. Singer is attached to direct the pic, and in the recent issue of Total Film, he talked a bit about the sequel, revealing that it takes place mostly in the 1980s, deals with the notion of ancient mutants, and will have “more mass destruction” than any X-Men film to date.

While we're big fans of the work that comes from the collectible arthouse Mondo, there's plenty of other great artists out there whose work is showcased elsewhere on the web. Blurppy is one such destination for some truly stunning artwork, and the site recently held a "Poster Posse" where they had dozens of artists do their own interpretation of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Some of these would make excellent Mondo posters and show some truly amazing skills. We've posted some of our favorites below, many featuring the Sentinels finally getting their due diligence, and you're definitely going to wish these were on your wall.

As the various competing superhero franchises gear up for the next round of 2014 releases – Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in May – our eyes are also on the various 2015 offerings. One project in particular, Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot, has the potential to be a franchise-rejuvenating success.
The first two attempts to bring Marvel’s superhero team to the big-screen were famously derided by both fans and critics, which means that Chronicle director Josh Trank and Fox’s Marvel Universe guru Simon Kinberg’s take on the material has a lot riding on it. They have a fascinating cast lined up so far, with Michael B. Jordan playing Johnny Storm, Kate Mara as Invisible Woman, ...

Marvel Studios has Kevin Feige serving as the “chief architect” for its movie universe, while Simon Kinberg is currently shepherding the Fox side of the Marvel film world with the X-Men and Fantastic Four properties. In the meantime, director Marc Webb has become a key creative force behind Sony’s rebooted Spider-Man universe.
Ever since the 2012 release of The Amazing Spider-Man, the filmmaker has been entrenched in Spidey’s world, prepping this summer’s sequel as well as laying groundwork for future installments and spin-offs. While we’re not sure exactly how long Webb will remain onboard as captain on the franchise (we now know that he ...

All great films begin with an awesome script and the X-Men film franchise has Simon Kinberg to thank for that. Along with X-Men:The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and Sherlock Holmes to name a few, Kinberg has put his brilliant imagination to work yet again, in penning the forthcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
During last summer’s set visit for Days of Future Past in Montreal, we sat down with Kinberg in Xavier’s mansion to chat about his writing process and working with Bryan Singer, weaving the old and new mutants into one film, time-travel, the importance of Wolverine, the evolution of the characters, the Sentinels and what we can expect from the much anticipated, soon-to-be-released film. Read his insightful interview below to uncover some of the excitement that’s about to be unleashed upon us in March.
So this is the moment where you tell us everything… »
