I was reading an article about Michael B. Jordan’s comments on the production of The Fantastic Four reboot. Jordan, who will be playing The Human Torch, explains that there’s been constant changes happening to the script during shooting. Those who think scheduling and a permanent script is finalized years prior to start of production are wrong. You can never tell what will happen on any given day during shooting.
Jordan went on to explain that Director Josh Trank’s vision for the comic book property is very clear. The story for the superhero family will be grounded and unconventional. Jordan expressed how he views these characters before and after obtaining their signature powers. They are less like superheros and more like kids who had an accident and have disabilities. They learn how to deal with this curse and adapt in attempt to live a life as normal as possible.
The more I read about Director Josh Trank’s vision, the more interesting the film becomes to me. It’s certainly sounds different then anything you and I have known about The Fantastic Four. Of course, that’s just my opinion and not everybody shares the same opinion. In fact, I feel like this film has gotten so much hate because it’s not meeting people’s expectations. What’s sad is that we have yet to see a single thing from this film and already a lot of the internet is passing judgement.
Check out the comments I collected from different articles on different movie sites concerning production on “The Fantastic Four”.
-What in the holy hell. Between his and Kata Mara’s comments, any cautious optimism I’ve had has completely evaporated. Is Roger Corman busy? Can we give the franchise back to him, please?
-wow another “dragon ball z movie”…. iam sure it will be great !(not) ty for making what could have been movie master pieces into just big pile of *****
-Next they are going to make Superman Chinese!!! You simply cannot change the ethnicity of iconic characters. What next, a Korean Black Panther?
-This is fine with me as long as when a biopic of Michael B. Jordan comes out in the future, a white dude is cast to play him. You know, because this unnamed white guy will be”one of the most exciting young actors in Hollywood, and if you have a chance to put him in your movie, why not just take it?”
-WORST. CASTING. EVER!!!
-is this Fantastic 4, or Teen Titans??
-Tom Hardy for Black Panther! He’d be able to bring the intensity that the character needs/deserves. Plus, race doesn’t matter anymore so why not?
-Not a single dime of my money…and be clear..the actors who are taking part in this blasphemous piece of crap…i will NEVER see one of your future projects either..
-Fox’s FF will suck. Fox’s FF found footage styled will suck even harder.
-Awesome! So, it’s going to be a teen flick–kind of like Twilight. It’s The Craptastic 4!
-Meryl Streep would be the best Sue Storm ever.
Wow, I don’t know about that last one, but I’m glad that person is not a casting director. No offense Meryl Streep. Anyways, with Comic Con in San Diego happening this weekend, I’m expecting Fox to show at least a teaser trailer at the panel with the main cast present. Make a statement Fox. I’m sure a lot of people in the audience are secretly hating this film.
I want this movie to great, so far it has a great cast in Michael B. Jordan (Human Torch), Kate Mara (Invisible Woman), Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Jamie Bell (The Thing) and Toby Kebbell (Dr. Doom). There is also great talent behind the camera in Director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and Writer Simon Kimberg (X-Men: DOFP).
Once again, I haven’t seen any footage, so this film could end up being terrible. That doesn’t mean I’m gonna negatively criticize it without seeing anything. But that’s just me.
