Now that the main cast members are in place for The Fantastic Four, many fans are wondering how 20th Century Fox is approaching this take on these classic Marvel characters. While we still have no confirmed story details yet, producer Matthew Vaughn revealed in a recent interview with Empire Magazine that the reboot is most certainly not a comedy, and that this has nothing to do with the 2005 version of Fantastic Four or its sequel.
"Its a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones. It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made of polystyrene. And its not a comedy."
Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm), Miles Teller (Reed Richards), Kate Mara (Sue Storm) and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm) are starring as this team of superheroes, with production scheduled to begin next month in Louisiana. Though, it should be noted that 20th Century Fox has still not issued an official cast announcement.
