Mark Millar On FANTASTIC FOUR, Says They Will Share Same Universe As X-MEN
UPDATE: 20th Century Fox Creative Consultant and comic book creator Mark Millar on what the Fantastic Four reboot has to get right and on the superhero family cohabitating the same universe as Fox's X-Men film franchise.
There are lots of rumors concerning Fox's Fantastic Four reboot but little that's actually confirmed at the moment. The only thing that is certain is that Josh Trank is directing. But the project will begin filming fairly soon and fans are really interested in learning how Fox plans to improve upon the bland Fantastic Four films that came before. 20th Century Fox Creative Consultant Mark Millar addressed that very concern, stating, “These first two movies were not that great but I’m quite sentimental towards them. I took my oldest daughter to see the first one, she was only five when it came out, and she thought it was the best film ever made. At the end, when Johnny Storm says, ‘Flame on!’ for the first time, she thanked me for taking her to see it. So even though it wasn't the perfect FF movie that memory makes me sort-of love it in a strange way. For the new one all they have to do is make it great and everyone will flock to it. It sounds obvious and it is, but the secret is just to get the right people behind it. Sam Raimi gave us a great Spider-Man. Christopher Nolan gave us a great Batman. So a brilliant director is probably the most important thing for a great Fantastic Four and with Josh Trank you know you are in safe hands.”
When asked if the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot from Chronicle director Josh Trank would share the same universe as Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and the rest of the X-Men, Millar added, "Without question I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies. I think the most exciting thing in superhero movies, until The Avengers came along, was when Nick Fury showed up in Iron Man. Even though it was a guy with an eye patch it was really cool – and I expect we will see more of that."
