All those actors were a lot older, their characters were in different places. The tone of this film is completely different: We don’t have Michael Chiklis in a big Styrofoam thing, and I think that [a more grounded approach] is what people are into — X-Men: First Class is doing that. You’re dealing with these characters but you’re making them real people in how they exist day-to-day. People wanted it to be taken more seriously than the kind of Dick Tracy, kitschy, overly comic-book world.
Referencing Dick Tracy? Is that the plan? To somehow use the (debatable) diminished reputation of a comic strip (not even a comic book) movie from 1990 to justify the rather unorthodox approach the Fantastic Four movie seems to be taking?
I'm starting to think Fox realizes they have a bit of a train wreck on their hands and they are getting worried. Remember, the Fantastic Four movie is coming out in June 2015. The production has been finished since August. So where are the teaser trailer or promo images for the movie? A google image search reveals only one image and it's a leaked piece of post production.
Well, the moment of truth is coming up soon. When the Super Bowl airs in America, it will be up to Fox to have a teaser or trailer ready by then. If they don't, it's going to look very bad. I would go so far as to say if we don't see a trailer during the Super Bowl, that Fox may be considering scrapping the project altogether.
Stay tuned for further developments. :)
