This week The Fantastic Four reboot has been in the headlines but for all the wrong reasons. Confusion surrounds the 20th Century Fox movie the week before the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con International and hopefully Fox will do something to correct this at Comic-Con next week.
Until then, fans have to deal with the "no it isn't, yes it is" talk by Sue Storm actor Kate Mara regarding if the reboot will be influenced by comic book canon or not. Next up on the damage control docket for the reboot is Johnny Storm actor Michael B. Jordan hinting about what The Fantastic Four reboot is about.
Jordan said the following to MTV:
"Josh’s vision is very clear and he knows exactly what he wants, and he gives us room to adapt and to play. That’s what I kind of think sets us apart, is that this is going to be grounded and unconventional.
"It’s not your typical superhero film, you know, we aren’t looking at this as like, being superheroes. We’re more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities now that we have to cope with, and try to find a life afterwards – try to be as normal as we can."
The Human Torch actor then spoke about how things are evolving, even on the set.
"The script is evolving, [you make] on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing. Me personally, I block out that extra noise and I focus on the job I have to do. It is an important film for all of us… We’re taking it seriously, taking a lot of risks. I think it’s going to pay off."
The Fantastic Four reboot is currently filming in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is set to release in theaters on June 19, 2015.
