Marvel’s Mark Millar says ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot will be ‘awesome’ with ‘Ridley Scott moments’
Other the Fox hiring “Chronicle” director Josh Trank and the film’s release date, little is known about the reboot of the “Fantastic Four” film franchise. Wednesday, while speaking with Sci Fi Now, comic book creator Mark Millar gave his insights into the film.
“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 contemporarising it,” said Millar. “I think he’s just making it work for the screen – he’s a great storyteller.”
2012’s “Chronicle” was a huge surprise hit and Millar compares the film to FF.
“Chronicle, if you think about it, was similar to Fantastic Four in that it was a bunch of people who were transformed into something more than human – that turned out almost his calling card to come and do something like Fantastic Four.”
The Scottish comic book creator and co-writer on “Ultimate Fantastic Four” gushes over the plans for the Four.
“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 screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before.”
“The Fantastic Four” is set for theaters March 6, 2015.
