Josh Trank Looking To Jack Kirby And Stan Lee For Inspiration On The FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot
While chatting on his new role as Marvel Movie Consultant, Mark Millar said that Fantastic Four director Josh Trank will be looking to use classic stories from the Jack Kirby and Stan Lee era for the movie.
There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the announcement that Mark Millar would be overseeing Fox's Marvel movie department. He will be in charge of making sure movies such as X-Men keep the momentum they have coming off of X-Men: First Class. He will also be looking to successfully reboot the Fantastic Four. Director Josh Trank will be tasked with bringing the movie to life. Millar said Trank's Chronicle was his favorite Superhero film last year, and is excited to see what he can bring to the table. "You can tell from Chronicle that it was a new way of looking at superheroes, and I think he’s going to apply that same slightly skewed way of looking at heroes to the Fantastic Four, but do it in a way that feels incredibly reverential to the Kirby and Lee stuff," said Millar. He also went on to say that for the Fantastic Four to work properly it really has to be done with the Lee and Kirby prospective.
One of the current Hollywood trends for Superhero movies is to make them more gritty. Don't expect that from the Fantastic Four. "I don’t think you could do Fantastic Four and try and make it grim and gritty," Miller explained. With most comic book movies going that direction it seems that Millar his hoping that Fantastic Four will be a breath of fresh air in the genre.
