The last two Fantastic Four movies were never good, in fact, they were quite bad. Now that, Kinberg, the same screenwriter who worked in Days of Future Past is the responsible for this new movie, which is a reboot you have one reason to be excited. Josh Trank, director of Chronicle is involved, that would be reason number two. Chronicle is a film that you should watch, it’s a good one trust me, very character-driven, just like I like it. Third, the cast is amazing. You should watch Fruitvale Station if you way to know how good Michael B. Jordan is. Whipash is almost out on theaters, and I’m hearing great stuff about Miles Teller. Ignore That Awkward and the party movies, just go watch The Spectacular Now. Kate Mara? American Horror Story? C’mon. Jamie Bell is a interesting choice for Ben Grimm, but I definitely trust this guy, he is a great actor. For Doctor Doom, we have Toby Kebbell, who made a good job in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, my favorite blockbuster of the year.
That was a long introduction for a small piece of news. Here we go. This come from Schmoes Know, and these are plot details. I guess you know that Invisible Woman and Human Torch are siblings. The internet got mad after getting the cast news. Michael B. Jordan is the new Johnny Storm and Sue Storm will be played by Kate Mara. This comes from a reliable source, one of them is adopted, that person being Kate Mara’s character. That a departure from the source material, but I like it, looks clever. Seriously, I like a lot.
Other fact about the movie is that they will not get their powers from a failed lab experiment in outer space, just like the comics, just like the previous movies. They are going for the Ultimate’s route. The article in the Schmoes Know website says the following:
In the film, the team will gain their powers through a lab experiment gone wrong in a way, where they create a portal to another world or dimension (its not clear) and they get their powers after the exposure to this other dimension/planet. Much like how the group gets their powers in the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics, after they are engulfed in a failed teleporter experiment.
Then, one of the more exciting news for me, sources say that this is a very character-driven film. Most of the movies I love are character-driven. Believe me, this is not going to take out the action of the movie, of course not. This makes the movie way more interesting for everyone, because the relationships, good conversations and scenes were the dialogue is the star, grow. The Fantastic Four, after this piece of news, became one of my most exciting films of 2015. Can’t wait.
