Mark Millar is well known for his comic book contributions but has been also working as a creative consultant to FOX Films in regards to their new approach with their comic book properties such as the X-men universe and The Fantastic Four. he recently sat down with Sci-Fi Now and had the following below to say about the new reboot film for Fantastic Four and Josh Trank, the director of Chronicle, who is on board to helm this new attempt at the FF. This new Fantastic Four film is scheduled to be released on March 6th of 2015. All I can say is look at Johnathon Hickman’s run for inspiration.
“From what I’ve seen and from talking to him he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well he’s contemporising it.”
“I think he’s just making it work for the screen he’s a great storyteller.”
Chronicle, if you think about it, was similar to Fantastic Four in that it was a bunch of people who were transformed into something more than human that turned out almost his calling card to come and do something like Fantastic Four.”
“What I wasn’t expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know? The Ridley Scott moments, and the Fantastic Four really are jaw-dropping in the same way you feel when you saw Alien for the first time. There’s some moments in this not to be specific that are actually gonna be phenomenal on screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before.”
