The X-Men Will Team Up With The Fantastic Four, Get the Details
While an X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover movie may seem inevitable, the folks at 20th Century Fox have remained coy about the idea, never actually confirming that a meeting of their two biggest superhero franchises is in the works. So leave it to the Sony Pictures hack to shed some light on what's really going on behind the scenes.

Read The Official Synopsis For The Fantastic Four Reboot
The Fantastic Four movie is going to be out of this world! At least, that's what the synopsis says. You can read it for yourself, and find out why this isn't just a hyperbolic statement.

Fantastic Four Is Changing Doctor Doom In These Huge, Weird Ways
The Fantastic Four is changing a lot of elements from the original source material, but the revised origin for its main antagonist Doctor Doom takes the cake!

The Reason Fantastic Four Is Refusing To Show Any Footage Yet
The Fantastic Four reboot is a pretty crucial project for the folks over at 20th Century Fox. Right now the X-Men franchise is on a very good path, but if the studio really wants to expand their in-house comic book movie world, then that means Fantastic Four needs to work with both critics and audiences.

What Miles Teller Thinks About All Of The Fantastic Four Hatred
Maybe this is just Teller’s way of psyching himself up, like a star quarterback reading the press clippings from the opposing team. The thing is, the proof will ultimately be in the finished movie. And The Fantastic Four has nowhere to go but up.

The Fantastic Four Suits Will Be Even Weirder Than We Thought
Since the announcement of Chronicle director Josh Trank at the helm, we’ve been repeatedly told that The Fantastic Four’s tone will be “grounded.” Human Torch actor Michael B. Jordan gave us an example of this “grounded” tone last week when he described the Fantastic Four’s costumes as new and fresh “without going to the cheesy superhero outfits.”

The X-Men And The Fantastic Four Team Up Movie Is On The Table
There’s precedence for an X-Men/FF crossover. The characters have shared adventures in the pages of the Marvel comic books, and they all live under the roof of Fox. So it’s possible.

This Is Why The Old Fantastic Four Movies Failed, According To Miles Teller
Yet another franchise has incurred the wrath of Miles Teller. But before you go calling him, “the next Shia LaBoeuf,” you should read the tough love he's giving the Fantastic Four franchise.

This Probably Is How The Fantastic Four Will Get Their Powers In The Reboot
Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot continues to be a complete mystery. With the film not out until August of next year, it may still be a little while before anything is officially confirmed, but for now we can subsist on the rumors that keep trickling in.

How Guardians Of The Galaxy May Have Inspired Fantastic Four To Completely Change Course
One of the key reasons why James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has been able to do so well at the box office is because of the sheer lack of competition that existed in movie theaters this past August. Sure, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles put up a formidable fight in the Marvel movie's second week, but after that point a first, second or maybe even a third screening of the film was seen as preferable for audiences over whatever new stuff was coming out.

Doctor Doom Will Look Like This In The New Fantastic Four
Get a good look at the suit in the images. It looks like it has been scorched. The eyes look hollowed out. The cape and hood look menacing, but until we see what kind of powers Doom has in Trank’s movie, it’s all just one long guessing game.

Fantastic Four Photo Leak May Show Us The Thing
Justified Films went a little hashtag crazy to say that it is a leaked image of The Thing from The Fantastic Four. You can tell that there is a lot of green screen going on behind ol’ rock head, so this could be the stand in that visual effects artists will use when they digitally add in Ben Grimm.

Hero Blend #27: What To Expect From Marvel, DC And Fox At San Diego Comic-Con 2014
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.

The Fantastic Four Will Not Be Appearing At San Diego Comic-Con 2014
This year's San Diego Comic-Con is going to be jam-packed with all kinds of huge comic book movie news. While nothing has been officially confirmed, fans around the world are expecting to hear big announcements from both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC Comics, whom we expect to confirm new projects and perhaps even reveal a few new casting choices. Unfortunately, there is at least one 2015 superhero flick that we won't be seeing anything from at this year's big expo: Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four.

Fast And Furious 7, Terminator And 3 Other Surprises We Want At Comic-Con
Knowing which studios are expected to be in town for San Diego Comic-Con, we put together a Surprise Wish List of in-development blockbusters that could bring a presentation at the last minute to next weekend’s fan-driven heaven. These are movies that would appeal directly to the gathered masses at Comic-Con, and they have been in some state of filming prior to the festivities.

The Fantastic Four Movie Isn't Based On Any Of The Comics
Why? Because these films have become an absolute slave to the source material, and it isn't fun. The source material is often not just a comic, but a DEFINITIVE comic. Which is to say replicating it to the letter isn't always going to translate.

Will The Fantastic Four Surprise Fans At Comic-Con?
As we reported earlier, Star Wars: Episode VII will be a no show, but that’s no surprise. Now we are hearing that Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four will bypass the annual comic book convention – and that strikes us as odd.

Fantastic Four Will Have A Found Footage Feel
Of course, this doesn't mean that we can expect that The Fantastic Four will be filled with characters running around with handicams and narrating the story all from off screen. Instead, what I imagine Watts is referring to is instead a visual style similar to what Paul Greengrass has established, using a good amount of hand-held camera work to lend the movie the feel of a docu-drama.

Fantastic Four Stars Continue To Sell Smaller, 'Grounded' Take On The Comics
20th Century Fox seems to be coaching the Fantastic Four cast on the proper buzz words to use in interviews, because the franchise’s new Human Torch, Michael B. Jordan, used the familiar term “grounded” when asked by IGN about the movie’s tone.

Is Marvel Intentionally Sabotaging Its Relationship With Fox?
It sounds as if there's something brewing between Marvel and Fox. News leaked this weekend that in the next couple of months, Marvel is putting both Fantastic Four and Ultimate Fantastic Four on a hiatus. It makes sense to lose one of them, as the team isn't necessarily one of Marvel's highest sellers, but both?

Don't Expect To See The X-Men In The Fantastic Four Reboot
Everyone wants a piece of that sweet interconnected universe pie. Marvel Studios has been building theirs since 2008, Sony is getting ready to experiment with Venom and Sinister Six for their Amazing Spider-Man series, and Fox holds both the rights to the X-Men as well as Fantastic Four. Next year brings The Fantastic Four to theaters, and many expect that the film will eventually lead the heroes towards a meet up with the X-Men in a big superhero goulash.

The Fantastic Four Close To Adding Tim Blake Nelson
Actor Tim Blake Nelson made his comic book movie debut in 2008 when he starred as a nerdy, awkward scientist in The Incredible Hulk, and now he's reportedly getting ready to head back to the genre... to play a nerdy, awkward scientist in Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

The Fantastic Four Reboot's Tone To Fall Between Chronicle And Spider-Man
Modern comic book movies have shown us that there are two equally effective approaches to tone: you can go the fun, more comedic route, like The Avengers, or darker and more serious, like The Dark Knight. Not only does this provide a bit of variety within the genre, it also provides an interesting question about the direction of future projects. In this case, we're talking about the upcoming Fantastic Four movie from director Josh Trank.

The Fantastic Four May Feature Doombots
What most people forget about Doom, and what the earlier films ignored, is that he's a special brand of crazy. He's not just a tyrant and a supervillain – he also rules over Latveria with an iron fist. As such, he has all the neuroses not only of a major political figure, but also a madman who looks down upon the entire planet for their weak intellect.

Chris Evans Endorses Michael B. Jordan's Casting In Fantastic Four
With all due respect to Evans, easily the highlight of the earlier films, Jordan seems poised to nail this role. He's got the seriousness and maturity to be a poker-faced action star, but the smile and easy charisma to also be a marquee star.

Hero Blend #8: The Doctor Is In? Finding A Dr. Doom Actor And A Doctor Strange Director
Hollywood shortlists are a bit tricky to navigate. Studios do what they can to keep the goings-on behind their biggest productions very hush-hush – at least until the ink on the contracts has dried - but every so often a list emerges of actors and filmmakers that are being considered to play important franchise roles. Sometimes the information can be questionable, but at other times it can be an amazing way to look into the way an upcoming film is being made.

Josh Trank Again Debunks Runaway Fantastic Four Rumors

Fox Considering Changing Dr. Doom To A Female Character
THR claims that the production is seeking a big name to play the villainous Dr. Doom, a character considerably intertwined with the early days of the characters, and played by Julian McMahon in the earlier films. But what seems curious is that they claim Fox “isn’t ruling out switching genders for the role.” Which, uh… would be a departure.

Ben Grimm. As many casting reports as we've heard, none of them have mentioned potential actors for the gruff superhero made of orange rock... that is, until today.

More Fantastic Four Talk From Miles Teller
Let’s break down what he said. He says that Trank “should” put a fresh spin on it. Which likely means that the reboot won’t be beholden to the classic Marvel origin of the team, which requires the four members of the eventual “family” to take a spaceship trip through a storm of cosmic radiation.

Currently, the only other film slated for a June 19 release is Pixar’s Inside Out, which will take viewers through the emotional mind of an 11-year-old girl. No doubt that film is going to rake in the dough as well, with children as the primary (but by no means only) audience.
