In an interview with Fox's president of production Emma Watts, The Hollywood Reporter inquired  about the different superhero movies Fox has under its belt, and about the genre as a whole. Responding to any concerns about burnout from superhero films, Watts expressed confidence saying that the "audience seems to still be really enjoying it" and was also enthused about the Fantastic Four reboot's director Josh Trank, calling him a "big bet". She goes on to say:

"[Trank] is using the vision he gave us in Chronicle to reinvent a franchise he's loved his whole life. It's not that you can't make original ideas -- you can, and we did it with Chronicle. The director is the key to not letting superhero movies go stale."

When asked about the Fantastic Four having a "found footage" feel, she gave the affirmative:

"It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel. That's his talent, that's what he does, and that's what excites him about it."

For those not familiar with the term, found footage films are a style/genre of film which has much of it's presentation resembles discovered recordings, often associated with handheld film or video cameras. Examples of this are "The Blair Witch Project", "Cloverfield", and yes Josh Trank's "Chronicle".

So it looks like casting choices may not be the only thing shaking things up for the Fantastic Four Reboot. Watts also had something to say about the cast in relation to the director:

"It is a really interesting young cast [Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell], and he is the magnet that's brought them all together."

Do you have the same trust in the film that Watts has? Does Reed Richards use lens-stabilizing technology? Is what they found the footage from a H.E.R.B.I.E.? We'll find out when the Fantastic Four Reboot (currently untitled) launches June 19, 2015.
