Johnny Storm actor Michael B. Jordan gave an EXCLUSIVE (hugglluggghlluggghhh) interview to MTV about the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot from director Josh Trank, and he offered a revealing look into the thought process behind the film:
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.
It was revealed last week that director Josh Trank was instructing the cast not to read the comics, since "the plot won't be based on any history of anything already published." The Fantastic Four will also reportedly not call themselves the Fantastic Four and will not wear costumes. It is also rumored that it will be a "found footage" movie.
What do you think? Is this unusual approach to a superhero film a breath of fresh air, or the worst mistake in the history of superhero filmmaking? Let us know in the comments.
