Why We Haven't Seen Anything from the Fantastic Four Movie

9 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot finished shooting awhile back, but we have barely seen anything from the film. This is incredibly surprising, especially when we see stuff from Batman v Superman and Star Wars: Episode VII leaking almost every day. Fox must actually threaten to kill people if they leak anything. I got banned from Facebook for three days because of a set photo of Thing that I posted. I'm really curious to see what Trank and the studio have done with this classic Marvel superhero team.

In a recent interview with producer Simon Kinberg, we learn the reason why we haven't seen anything official yet. This is what he said to ComicBook.com:

"We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make »

Simon Kinberg on when we might expect to see footage from The Fantastic Four reboot

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken about the upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four whilst promoting the home entertainment release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, specifically when we might expect to see the first footage from the film…

“We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, or anything like that. I don’t actually know when [a trailer is] coming out, but I’ve seen all the footage from the movie. I was there for pretty much the whole shoot. It is a very different film from the others, and one that I think is very different from other superhero movies. It’s a very emotional, »

'Fantastic Four' Producer Reveals Why We Haven't Seen Anything

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg is currently in post-production on the 20th Century Fox superhero adventure The Fantastic Four, and everything we've heard about the reboot thus far makes it clear that this is vastly different than any other incarnation of these superheroes that have come before it. With the release less than a year away, many fans have been wondering when the first footage will debut. When asked that very question in a recent interview, Simon Kinberg reveals that he doesn't known when the first trailer will arrive. But he has a good reason why we haven't seen anything yet.

The team behind The Fantastic Four reboot want to make sure the "voice" of the movie is fully intact when it is introduced to the public. Simon Kinberg explains:

Simon Kinberg Reveals Why We Haven't Seen Anything From The Fantastic Four

20 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Fantastic Four had no presence at this year's Comic-Con, and apart from a handful of leaked images (which may or may not be legit), we've seen literally nothing from the Josh Trank helmed reboot. Comments from the actors have received mixed responses from fans, and even a single official still would surely help win a lot of sceptical comic book readers around. Talking to ComicBook.com recently, writer and producer Simon Kinberg had this to say in terms of an explanation for the lack of official material. "We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, or anything like that. »

Simon Kinberg on the 'Fantastic Four' Reboot: "I’ve seen all the footage."

20 October 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

via HitFix.com

In case you missed any story about director Josh Trank's reboot of Fantastic Four superhero franchise for Fox since it got pushed back to next August 7th, the new line when talking about this film is: this version is different, this version has real characters, this version is real, this version has real characters.

Let's see how writer/producer Simon Kinberg spins the line of "this version is real/different, this version has real characters" to ComicBook.com while talking about X-Men: Days of Future Past:

"We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, »

Simon Kinberg Has No Idea When We’ll See Any Footage From The Fantastic Four

20 October 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, studios strutted their upcoming projects across the stage of Hall H, and began building marketing momentum. It’s a key date in the movie calendar that the entire year hinges upon, prompting fans to ponder many film-related questions. Will we see footage from a new Marvel flick? Are we likely to hear some insane casting news? Or failing that, will be granted a look at a murky, pixellated behind-the-scenes photo? So, bearing in mind the importance of the event, there was one noticeable absence from this year’s proceedings – Fox’s The Fantastic Four reboot.

There’s been a number of speculative reasons put forth for the movie’s absence, but none have stuck. The lack of anything promo-related is rather baffling, especially when you look at the pile of promotional teases other studios have stacked in their favour. Marvel will usually drop »

The Reason Fantastic Four Is Refusing To Show Any Footage Yet

20 October 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Fantastic Four reboot is a pretty crucial project for the folks over at 20th Century Fox. Right now the X-Men franchise is on a very good path, but if the studio really wants to expand their in-house comic book movie world, then that means Fantastic Four needs to work with both critics and audiences. As a result, there is going to be a great deal of pressure on our first official look that the new film - and that's exactly why we haven't gotten one yet. While speaking with ComicBook.com, producer Simon Kinberg revealed why we have yet to actually get our first look at the new Fantastic Four, and the basic reason is just that the movie just isn't ready to be seen yet. Touting the fact that he was on the set of the movie almost every day of shooting and has already seen all of »

Simon Kinberg Explains Why We Haven’t Seen Anything from The Fantastic Four

20 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As we laid out recently, there are a lot of superhero movies coming up; the year 2016 will bring us seven such films alone.  One of the biggest question marks in the near future, however, is The Fantastic Four reboot.  It’s not so much that there’s doubt about director Josh Trank (Chronicle) rebooting the material, or that fans are unsure about the casting—Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Tobey Kebbell is a really solid lineup.  It’s that we haven’t seen a single thing from this movie yet.  Granted, it isn’t set to hit theaters until next August, but by this point we’ve usually seen something from a property of this scale.  Marvel released the first Ant-Man image and poster the week that filming began.  Warner Bros. has been rolling out a number of promo images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, »

2015 is so packed with big movies, getting any one to stand out is important.

Tom Hardy Wanted for Villain Role in X-men: Apocalypse

20 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Suicide Squad isn't the only comic book movie that Tom Hardy is up for. According to The Wrap, the British actor is also up for the role of the villain Apocalypse in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse!

At one point Hardy was rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but it seems like that ship has sailed, and he's not on it. One thing for sure is, it looks like he's going to be attached to another comic book project in the near future. This wouldn't be the first time either, as he also played Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises

I think Hardy would be great in both Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. But if I had to choose to see him in one of those it would have to be as Apocalypse, because he would freakin' be awesome in that role! »

Kinberg Talks "Fantastic Four" Tonal Tease

20 October 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

We have yet to see any photos or footage from Josh Trank's reboot of "The Fantastic Four" franchise at 20th Century Fox. While the film isn't out until August next year, it is hoped that the teaser trailer will hit in the next few months.

That trailer will likely be our first glimpse at the secretive film, in the process giving us an idea at what kind of tone, look and feel Trank is aiming for. Because of this, the film's writer/producer Simon Kinberg tells ComicBook.com that those in charge are being Very careful about what footage they will show off with the overall tone being the focus of the first reveal:

"We're putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this 'Fantastic Four' is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure »

Simon Kinberg isn't sure when first Fantastic Four footage will be revealed

20 October 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

One thing most of you bring up whenever there's a news story involving Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four is the fact that nothing official has been released yet for the film. Considering how much the internet already hates the upcoming film, you'd think Fox would at least give us an image to check out from the reboot. So when might we be able to see the The Fantastic Four footage? ComicBook.com recently asked screenwriter Simon Kinberg the same question, and although »

Tom Hardy is reportedly being sought to play the villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Dark Knight Rises star is wanted by director Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox to play En Sabah Nur, the world's first mutant who was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC.

According to The Wrap, Hardy is also in the running for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad film and Marvel's Doctor Strange but won't be able to appear in all three.

Deadpool will be part of X-Men movie continuity

19 October 2014 10:35 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Deadpool will sit as part of the X-Men movie universe, that producer Simon Kinberg admits is influenced by Marvel's success...

There's still a degree of pinching ourselves over the news that the long-mooted Deadpool movie is actually going to happen. The film is set to be directed by Tim Miller, and it's on the schedules for release in February 2016. Ryan Reynolds is expected to take on the title tole. There's also been some discussion over whether it'll target an R-rating or a PG-13, but we've heard no more about that.

What we do know now, however, is that Deadpool will be part of the X-Men movie universe continuity that's being built, and won't sit as a standalone project.

Chatting to ComicBook.com, producer Simon Kinberg - who's also been on script duties for Fantastic Four, X-Men: Days Of Future Past and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse - said that "there’s »

Deadpool Will Fit Into Overall 'X-Men' Universe

17 October 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The X-Men film series has certainly regained momentum in recent years after being considered all but finished with X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Now it seems like those behind the X-Men film franchise are trying to capitalize on this momentum by creating an X-Men shared film universe, much in the same vein that Marvel Films has done.

Comicbook.com recently interviewed Simon Kinberg (writer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot) and he was quick to mention one X-Men character who will see his own spin-off film:

There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now, and Deadpool obviously fits into that.

So the upcoming Deadpool movie will somehow tie into the overall X-Men Universe, whether that means little cameos or an overarching storyline is unknown at the time. Deadpool was last seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. »
