The Fantastic Four Will Not Be Appearing At San Diego Comic-Con 2014

3 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This year's San Diego Comic-Con is going to be jam-packed with all kinds of huge comic book movie news. While nothing has been officially confirmed, fans around the world are expecting to hear big announcements from both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC Comics, whom we expect to confirm new projects and perhaps even reveal a few new casting choices. Unfortunately, there is at least one 2015 superhero flick that we won't be seeing anything from at this year's big expo: Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. Speaking with Latino-Review, producer/writer Simon Kinberg confirmed that next year's big Fantastic Four reboot will not have a presence at this year's Comic-Con - despite the fact that 20th Century Fox is hosting a panel this year in the San Diego Convention center's famous Hall H. Asked if fans can expect any kind of footage or big reveal, Kinberg said, "I can definitively »

No "Fantastic Four" Presence At Comic Con

6 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's no official announcement, and some comments from actor Michael B. Jordan indicated it was unlikely. Now, producer Simon Kinberg has one and for all put to bed the speculation about Josh Trank's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot appearing at the San Diego Comic Con this week.

Kinberg tells Latino Review that the reason for the absence is purely one of practicality - they're still filming, on a very tight deadline, and there just isn't any material ready to show yet:

"No, I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from Fantastic Four at this year's Comic Con. We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don't want to show anything until it's ready and it's not ready yet.

We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we have got to wait until it's ready. »

13 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

In a recent interview with Latino-Review, screenwriter Simon Kinberg talked in-depth about two of Fox's upcoming comic book movies, X-men: Apocalypse and Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. Since most of you don't seem too thrilled about The Fantastic Four, we'll start with X-men stuff first. Simon Kinberg was asked to compare Fox's X-men movies to Marvel's phase structure. The answer is we really do think more broadly than one movie at a »

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were hoping to get a first look at Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the Fantastic Four at Comic-Con this weekend, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck. The Josh Trank-directed reboot was absent from 20th Century Fox’s schedule for its Hall H presentation on Friday, and now writer / producer Simon Kinberg has stated categorically that Fox has no Fantastic Four surprise in store.

“I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from The Fantastic Four at this year’s Comic Con,” Kinberg tells Latino-Review. “We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don’t want to show anything until it’s ready and it’s not ready yet.

'Batman V Superman,' 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' And 'Fantastic Four' To Make Surprise Appearances At Comic-Con

21 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel and DC will go head-to-head at Comic-Con 2014, causing some to theorize that DC and Warner Bros. will unveil a possible Justice League cast lineup.

Batman V Superman Footage

DC’s Justice League movie will be their first shared superhero film, coming out of the recent Superman reboot in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and the upcoming sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Last year, Snyder announced the Batman V Superman sequel at the Warner Brothers Comic-Con panel, and fans are anxious to see whether or not Snyder will surprise Comic-Con with another revelation on the Man of Steel sequel.

Rumors, of course, are already running wild about what potential Warner Bros. and DC surprises could be in store for San Diego this week, with many citing footage of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, at the top of their list. »

Kate Mara clarifies that Fantastic Four film will be 'drawn from canon'

21 July 2014 1:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kate Mara has clarified her comments about the source material for Fantastic Four.

20th Century Fox's reboot film will "draw from the entire canon" of the classic Marvel Comics property, a spokesperson for the actress told EW.

The actress had been quoted in the Spanish-language Esquire México that the film "won't be based on any history of anything already published".

She added that she was not a comics fan and had been advised by director Josh Trank not to read any.

Mara will play Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four.

Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller will also star in Trank's film, which is said to have a 'found-footage feel'.

The Fantastic Four will open in UK cinemas on June 18, 2015 and in the Us on June 19. »

Michael B. Jordan Talks The New Fantastic Four

20 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While there has been a lot of talk about 20th Century Fox’s new version of The Fantastic Four, particularly while it was still in development, very little information has come directly from those involved in it. Now, talking to MTV, Michael B. Jordan – Aka Johnny Storm / The Human Torch – has opened up about the tone and more of the new superhero venture.With his Chronicle director Josh Trank calling the shots and Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell around him as Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl and The Thing respectively, Jordan commented on how the film has been perceived to be in trouble, with various script drafts and rumours that it would be shut down before it even began.“The script is evolving, you make on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing,” he says. “Me personally, I block out that extra noise and I focus »

5 Reasons The Fantastic Four Should Stick Around

20 July 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

As Marvel and Fox continue to butt heads over their licences and treatment of their heroes, rumours are abound of what steps Marvel will take to damage the new film reboot’s success. With more and more news emerging suggesting that director Josh Trank is not even paying lip service to the very comics his film is based upon, even thematically opposing their very nature, it has been suggested that Marvel may put the title on hiatus. Some suggest that they may even go further than this, killing off their Ultimate incarnation to try and ruin Fox’s box office income.

While the degree of truth behind this is debatable to say the least, both companies have taken steps to harm the other’s films. After all, Quicksilver was a last second addition to Days of Future Past, replacing the previously planned Juggernaut and potentially causing problems for Age of Ultron. »

‘Fantastic Four’: Michael B. Jordan Talks Filming & Family Themes

18 July 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Josh Trank’s upcoming comic book movie reboot The Fantastic Four has caused a frankly impressive amount of hubbub already, considering we haven’t yet seen so much as an official set photo. From the backlash over casting choices like Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell to rumors that Dr. Doom was going to be played by a woman (he’s not), this is one movie that just doesn’t seem capable of doing anything right in the eyes of some Marvel fans.

Admittedly Twentieth Century Fox’s Fantastic Four movies don’t have the best track record so far, but based on the talent behind the camera this reboot promises to be very different from what’s gone before. Director Josh Trank, ...

Michael B. Jordan says The Fantastic Four is not your typical superhero film

18 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

While production has already started on Fox's The Fantastic Four there is little to no details on Josh Trank's (Chronicle) reboot. Kate Mara, who was cast as Sue Storm, said the plot for The Fantastic Four won't be based on the comics, so not much to go by. We might see something from Hall H panel at this year’s Comic-Con but in the meantime Michael B. Jordan, who plays Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the film, was asked about the upcoming reboot in a »

'Fantastic Four' Script Is Constantly Changing On Set

18 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When 20th Century Fox announced their Comic-Con 2014 plans last week, many fans were surprised that The Fantastic Four was not one of the movies the studio plans on showcasing. It has been rumored that all five main cast members, Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm), Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara (Sue Storm), Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm) and Toby Kebbell (Victor Von Doom) will make an appearance, but the studio has not confirmed that at this time.

Even if The Fantastic Four doesn't have a presence in San Diego next week, Michael B. Jordan revealed a number of new details about his highly-anticipated reboot in a new interview with MTV, where he says the script is constantly evolving and calls the project a grounded and unconventional superhero movie, while discussing his reunion with Chronicle director Josh Trank.

The actor first revealed that the project is so massive that the script is constantly changing, »

Michael B. Jordan Says The Fantastic Four Script Is “Evolving” on Set; Doesn’t See the Characters as “Superheroes”

18 July 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though 20th Century Fox hasn’t officially revealed everything it will be bringing to Comic-Con next weekend for its big Hall H panel, most are expecting to see at least something from The Fantastic Four.  The comics adaptation is currently in production in Louisiana in anticipation of a June 19, 2015 release date, so this year’s Comic-Con is the film’s big chance to reach the fans in a massive way.  We still know very little about the pic beyond the fact that Chronicle director Josh Trank is at the helm and it has a “grounded” tone, but the cast is certainly promising with Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch, Kate Mara as Invisible Girl, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Jamie Bell as The Thing, and Toby Kebbell (aka Koba from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Dr. Doom. Jordan recently spoke a bit about the filming experience and »

'Ring 3' Gets a Director, Jordan Talks 'Fantastic Four', 'Mockingjay' Trailer News and More

18 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with The Ring 3 nine years after The Ring 2 disappointed so greatly. At the helm will be F. Javier Gutierrez who's also attached to direct The Crow reboot, which has had trouble getting off the ground. No word on whether or not Naomi Watts will return for another go 'round, but I highly doubt it considering the project is being targeted as a prequel. THR Speaking with MTV, Michael B. Jordan discussed the upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot in which he'll star as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and said: "We have been pretty much in our own world, that's really the only way we could get a project like this done. It is so massive, so many moving parts, so many moving pieces, things are changing every day...The script is evolving, you make on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing. »

Michael B. Jordan Says Fantastic Four Script Is Still “Evolving”

18 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Guardians of the GalaxyAvengers: Age of Ultron and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice have all been making headlines almost daily with rumors and scoops of all sorts, another superhero tentpole has been stealthily flying under the radar – Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four. We had only gotten a few scraps of information about the Fox flick over the past few months, such as that it’s going to be “more grounded” and a coming-of-age story. Then, earlier this week, star Kate Mara stirred the pot in a big way by telling Esquire Mexico that the movie isn’t based on any of the comics.

As you can imagine, her comments got fans in a bit of a tizzy and will surely come up when The Fantastic Four goes to San Diego for Comic-Con this year. But before the film hits that massive event, we’ve got a »

Michael B. Jordan Says 'Fantastic Four' Changing "On the fly"

18 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Not a lot has leaked out about Fantastic Four shooting down in Louisiana. Director Josh Trank either has a really good grip on things like set photos leaking...or it's something else entirely.

Talking to MTV about his involvement with Sprite and the Sprite Films program, Michael B. Jordan, the black Human Torch, let slip that Fantastic Four is constantly evolving, possibly into a story about... youth with disabilities?

Jordan: Yeah, we have been pretty much in our own world [on set], that’s really the only way we could get a project like this done. It is so massive, so many moving parts, so many moving pieces, things are changing every day.

The script is evolving, [you make] on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing. Me personally, I block out that extra noise and I focus on the job I have to do. It is an important film for all of us… »

Michael B. Jordan On "Fantastic Four" Secrecy

18 July 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Michael B. Jordan's casting as Johnny Storm in the "Fantastic Four" reboot brought with it plenty of reaction, far more than any of his co-stars, and surprisingly not a lot was gushing despite the young actor's impressive pedigree.

Subsequently the upset over his casting has died down as concern has grown instead over the project as a whole and how director Josh Trank's vision seems to be taking a larger than expected departure from the comics.

It has gotten so touchy that a comment from co-star Kate Mara in a magazine interview this week about the film not being based on any of the comic's storylines had to be quickly followed up by a response from her publicist. Her publicist claimed that Mara was misquoted and actually meant the film was "not based on one comic [storyline], but rather drawn from the entire canon."

Director Josh Trank and the Fantastic Four have been quietly filming their big Marvel movie in Louisiana for the past few months. I say “quietly” for two reasons. One, we haven’t seen a lot of set photos of the stars in costume or anything. And two, co-star Michael B. Jordan agrees. In a new interview […]
