Well, it’s certainly been a huge week for Marvel fans! Having announced that we’d get our first look at Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron during the next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, Marvel were forced to act when the trailer leaked early, (via Hydra, no less!) prompting the studio to release an official version which went on to pull in an astonishing 35 million views in 24 hours, shattering the previous record »

While Lucasfilm and Disney have been incredibly tight-lipped with regards to director J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, the studios have unveiled essentially nothing about the other Star Wars films in the works. We know that starting next year, there are plans to release a new Star Wars movie every year, and we also know that the first film after Episode VII will be a “standalone” Star Wars feature directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. After that we have Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII and then Josh Trank’s “standalone” feature, so the studios certainly have a pretty deep bench and no doubt have a master plan of sorts. With Edwards on deck, he’s started to put together his crew in anticipation of starting production on his secretive Star Wars project in London next year, and the first major addition is a rather exciting one: cinematographer Greig Fraser. »

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 »

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, »

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.
"We're putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a »
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. »
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.
"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, »
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 »

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, »

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 »

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 »

/Off the back of tremendous success at the Sundance Film Festival, Damien Chazelle’s drumming drama Whiplash has steamed into Britain with its UK premiere at the London Film Festival.The film follows talented young drummer Andrew (Miles Teller), who attracts the attention of intimidating instructor Fletcher (Jk Simmons) and becomes part of his gruelling band rehearsals. As the group gets closer and closer to competition, Fletcher pushes and pushes Andrew until he reaches the limits of his potential.Teller and Simmons have both been highly praised for their performances, with breakout star Teller set to catapult to the A-list when he appears in Josh Trank’s reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise next year. Spider-Man star Simmons, on the other hand, was seen as a seasoned veteran on the set.“It was intimidating,” said director Damien Chazelle. “You definitely get scared at first, but he’s such a warm »
The onscreen and public personas of actor Miles Teller appear closely related at first glance: there’s the natural charisma (see: the smooth operators of “Two Night Stand” and “That Awkward Moment”) alongside the leading-man confidence that helped land him the part of Reed Richards in Josh Trank’s upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot. Yet in each film there is at least one moment, if not several, that cements why he’s one of the most sought-after actors working today, such as the quiet apology for an accident in “Rabbit Hole," or the stubborn confrontation in “The Spectacular Now” with his character’s deadbeat dad. Go ahead and add to that list a ten-minute drum solo and all of the psychological and physical trauma required to perfect it. Damien Chazelle’s second feature “Whiplash” (read our review) sees Teller playing a devoted, talented, and sometimes unlikeable jazz drummer eager to please »

From Marvel to Star Wars and Universal's monsters, Hollywood's become obsessed with universe building. Mark takes a closer look...
It feels weird to open with a spoiler warning for a medical drama from the 1980s, but if you're particularly sensitive to plot details from St. Elsewhere, you might wish to skip to the first sub-heading.
The infamous season finale placed all of the characters and events that had preceded it in the imagination of one of the doctors' autistic sons, Tommy Westphall, who dreamt it all up while staring into a snow globe that contained a replica of the hospital where it all took place. The funny thing is, St. Elsewhere had crossed over with other American TV shows, including Homicide: Life On The Street and Cheers, meaning they also potentially took place in Tommy's imagination.

(Cbr) "Fantastic Four" star Miles Teller knows there are a lot of people expressing their displeasure online about director Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot, but he says he doesn’t “get too caught up in it.” “I already know that people hate me for the fact that I’m playing Reed Richards and that we’re ruining their franchise,” he tells The Huffington Post. “It’s tough, because when you’re taking on a franchise that’s already been established, you do kind of owe something to the characters and to the creator. At the same time, you want to bring it to a fresh audience. My dad grew up with the 'Fantastic Four' comic book, and not a lot of kids did, so you also want to make a movie that they can enjoy. I will say that this film that we made is not really for little kids, »

Tan, tall, and well appointed in a gray suit, Miles Teller enters his room at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills looking like a movie star, albeit one from a different era. Teller's got the sort of wary, lived-in facial features that recall Robert Mitchum more than any of the smoothly symmetrical soap-star hunks that populate today's superhero franchises, which makes Teller's rise through their ranks all the more impressive: He just finished filming Fantastic Four, Josh Trank's gritty comic-book reboot due out next summer. In the meantime, Teller is promoting the terrific Whiplash, a drama directed by Damien Chazelle, where he stars as a young jazz drummer with a cruel, manipulative martinet (J.K. Simmons) for a teacher. It's the hardest part he's ever played, Teller tells Vulture.Have you ever dealt with a director who really got in your head, like J.K.’s character does to you in Whiplash, »

Fans have been very vocal about how they're not happy (to put it lightly) about the cast for The Fantastic Four, as well as director Josh Trank's vision for the film, and in an interview with Huffington Post, Miles Teller (Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic) says he knows all about the internet's hate for the upcoming movie. Besides talking about negative fan reactions to the plans for The Fantastic Four, Teller also says he doesn't think the film was made for »

Last week Michael B. Jordan offered up a few thoughts on the criticism towards his casting as Johnny Storm / The Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four, and now co-star Miles Teller (a.k.a. the new Mister Fantastic) has chimed in with some comments on the negative reaction that the reboot has received from fans of Marvel’s First Family.
“There are a million blogs and websites talking about the casting and they hear one little thing, like, oh, there was rumor it was a found-footage movie, so then there were a million comments on that.” said Teller in an interview with The Huffington Post. “If we’re going to be up for everybody’s public disposal of it, I try not to get too caught up with anything on the Internet. Out of sight is out of mind for me a lot of the time. »

Welcome To Issue 66!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie/TV news, rumors, and speculation.
This Week: Let's not talk about TV for a week, because a ton of stuff happened. I'm going to break the best bits down for you using a trusty gimmick of hypothesizing the best and the worst case scenarios as a fan of these properties.
Whoo-boy! What a week for speculation about the future of Marvel properties. You think with Gone Girl being out we would have got a bit more Batman leakage, but apparently that’s not as fun to talk about as the movings of different superhero mega-franchises.
Sony’s Spidey-Verse, Marvel’s McU and Fox’s Marvel Properties all had rumored major motions this last week and it’s shaking up the long view for each franchise. Each one of »
During a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Miles Teller discussed his Whiplash movie as well as his role as Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, in the forthcoming Fantastic Four reboot. When asked if he is bothered by the mostly-negative response to his casting and seemingly Josh Trank's overall direction, Teller vented that, "there are a million blogs and websites talking about the casting and they hear one little thing, like, oh, there was rumor it was a found-footage movie, so then there were a million comments on that." He continued, "If we’re going to be up for everybody’s public disposal of it, I try not to get too caught up with anything on the Internet. Out of sight is out of mind for me a lot of the time. I already know that people hate me for the fact that I’m playing Reed Richards and »
