In case you missed the news, 20th Century Fox have recruited Mark Millar to oversee its Marvel properties in the role of creative consultant. One of the properties that he will be overseeing is the Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four reboot, which is pencilled in for a release in March 2015.
Millar has recently been chatting about the film, and here's what he had to say:
“From what I've seen and from talking to him – he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well – he's contemporizing it. I think he's just making it work for the screen – he's a great story teller.”
He continues: “What I wasn't expecting, actually, was just how funny and likeable he could make this, as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen – I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know? The Ridley Scott moments, and the Fantastic Four really are jaw-dropping in the same way you feel when you saw Alien for the first time. There's some moments in this – not to be specific – that are actually gonna be phenomenal on the screen and stuff you haven't seen in a superhero movie before.”
Bold words indeed, but Millar is hardly shy about such things. Still, this sounds very promising indeed.
