So what’s happening with the Fantastic Four reboot?

July 29th, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

We do like the last two Fantastic Four movies and would rather this just picked up from those, but it looks like a full reboot is called for…

Now that Marvel seem to be on a roll with their superhero franchise, the much talked about Fantastic Four reboot is hotting up with 28-year-old director Frank Trank rumoured to be attached to the project.

The director of Chronicle – which grossed £123 million – had apparently set his eye on the Fantastic Four once it was announced a new movie has been fast tracked.
This could potentially lead to an appearance in the upcoming Avengers movie providing legal rights etc can be sorted.
If the rumours prove to be true then, for me, the one thing to bring back is Michael Chiklis as the Thing.
Not that the movies didn’t work for me, I liked both but Chiklis was born to play the role.

We’ll keep you informed as we find out more.
