Jamie Bell, who plays Ben Grimm, a.k.a. The Thing in Fantatsic Four, wouldn't elaborate on how the movie sets up possible sequels, or how it "leaves the door open." It's also no secret that 20th Century Fox is developing The Fantastic Four 2, with a June 9, 2017 release date already set, and stars Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch) and Kate Mara (The Inivisble Woman) set to return as Marvel's first family, alongside Jamie Bell. There was also a rumor that surfaced last week which revealed the studio wants Bryan Singer to direct the sequel, in order to set up a crossover movie with Fantastic Four and X-Men, but that has not been confirmed.
Josh Trank directed the reboot from a script by Simon Kinberg, who is also producing the latest X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, currently shooting in Montreal. Both the X-Men: Apocalypse and Fantastic Four casts and filmmakers were present at SDCC last week, as a part of the 20th Century Fox Hall H panel, which culminated in an epic superhero selfie, along with the cast of Deadpool. The Bryan Singer rumor was never confirmed, but even if it isn't accurate, it could be an indication that Josh Trank won't be back to direct The Fantastic Four 2.Read More
20th Century Fox has taken an odd approach to officially unveiling the new Thing from their Fantastic Four remake. And perhaps its because they're not too proud of it? We got our first look courtesy of a leaked photo that exposed one of The Thing stand-in puppets being used on set. Next, The Thing appeared in a giant wall-sized movie poster spotted in the U.K. Now, U.K. publication Empire magazine has released the first studio sanctioned look at the rock monstrosity...And it's not that impressive?
The story in this new take on the classic Marvel comic book centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. In the three new photos, we get to see how this teleportation ride has mutated Jamie Bell's Ben Grimm into a giant pile of orange rocks. And it doesn't look too much different from the Thing in the original Fantastic Four released in 2005. We'll even bet that some like Michael Chiklis' version better, though it is dated 10 years.Read More
