Fantastic Four will be ‘phenomenal': Millar

January 10th, 2013 by bash Comments

Fox creative consultant Mark Millar has said that Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot will be “phenomenal”.

Speaking about the forthcoming film to SciFi Now, Millar said the director was “contemporising” the movie.

“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 contemporising it. I think he’s just making it work for the screen – he’s a great storyteller,” he said.

“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.

“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 release on March 6, 2015.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
