Kate Mara on the new Fantastic Four
Kate Mara has been chatting about the Fantastic Four reboot, and her role in it...
Kate Mara is one of the primary cast members in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, directed by Josh Trank, and has recently been chatting about the film and what fans can expect from it. Talking to IGN, she admitted that "I don’t know very much about it, which is weird but true! All I know is that it’s going to be a very different take on the film, which people may not expect".
Mara went on to say that "I’m not really familiar with the comic books,I picked up a few when I got the part. I think we’re making a very grounded version of a superhero film. I trust Josh Trank’s vision as I was a huge fan of Chronicle".
Her comments may not be music to the ears of some, but her honesty is refreshing. Her comments aren't too far removed from Dane DeHaan's regarding The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last year, where he admitted he wasn't a comic book guy but felt he didn't feel it was essential to the job. Given that DeHaan is one of the best things in the new Spider-Man film, he might just be right.
