‘Fantastic Four’ Star Kate Mara Trusts ‘Josh Trank’s Vision’ For Reboot


For a film that’s expected to begin principal photography in the next few weeks, not much is known about director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot. Heck, Fox hasn’t even officially announced the cast, although actors Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara have spoken about their roles.

Not that they know much about the project, either. Speaking with IGN, Mara acknowledged she doesn’t know “very much” about the reboot, “which is weird, but true.”

“All I know is it’s going to be a very different take in the film, probably [more] than people expect,” she said. “I’m not really familiar with the comic books very much. I’ve read a few of them since I got the part. I think we’re making a very grounded version of a superhero film. I trust Josh Trank’s vision.”

Mara added another interesting detail: She’s not sure that she’ll be wearing any sort of costume as Sue Storm.

“I don’t even know that there is a suit,” she said. “People keep saying that to me, but I don’t even know if there is a suit. As of now, I haven’t tried on a suit.”

Fantastic Four hits theaters on June 19, 2015.

    So now we might not even have any costumes. Well I sure as hell don’t trust Josh Trank’s vision, cause pretty much EVERYTHING I’ve heard about this film thus far is utter pants.

    I’m open to it. I’m “curious” to see where they take it.

    I would love to be too, but I honestly want a more faithful take on the FF and the idea of making it ‘grounded’ and having the same ethos as Dark Knight or Chronicle is not the way to go. Fantastic Four is meant to be one of those licences which plays with the impossible, going to incredible places and worlds with high-science and family. I don’t want Incredibles to be the greatest Fantastic Four film ever made forever.

    LMAO At the Incredibles reference.

    I hear you though. But we’ll have to see. It is afer all the 1st film. I doubt they’ll go to far while introducin the characters. This is meant to be a reboot for FF Universe Franchise. So I’m sure they’ll take it places in the next film.

    I want the characters to have costumes in the movie, Fantastic 4 reboot movie.

    It’s clear at this point (if it wasn’t already) that Fox is only interested in making this movie in order to keep their licence. Hopefully it’ll tank so badly that Marvel will be able to get the rights back.
