Fantastic Four Trailer Announced As Filmmakers Deny That Reboot Is ‘A Mess’

no title

So far what we’ve heard about the Fantastic Four reboot isn’t good.

We LIKE the cast, but apart from Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch, we just don’t know if they’re right for the parts.

And what are the parts like anyway??

With rumors flying about major changes from the comic books and executives calling the film “a mess,” people are wondering: Why haven’t we seen a single bit of footage yet?

We mean, the movie finished production months ago, and it comes out in August. Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn’t come out until December, and we got a teaser for that two months ago!

Well, screenwriter Simon Kinberg says footage is coming soon, and it’s going to surprise everyone:

“To confirm – Fantastic Four will be doing 3-4 days of additional photography with director Josh Trank and some key cast members. We are very excited about the film and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been up to. And you will be able to do that very soon as I can confirm here that the teaser will be on Kingsman in theaters February 13.”

We’re not holding out a ton of hope. This much sour scuttlebutt rarely resolves with a great final product.

But we were going to go see Colin Firth being a sexy spy in Kingsman: The Secret Service anyway, so we guess we’ll see then!
