Matthew Vaughn says The Fantastic Four will be dark and not a comedy
It's a total reboot, that's for sure. It's got nothing to do with the other bloody ones."
It's not stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it's made polystyrene. And its not a comedy."
I don't think that there was any doubt that THE FANTASTIC FOUR would drop the campy style of the previous two movies, but I don't think they can abandon humor entirely. THE FANTASTIC FOUR is shaping up to be a lot like Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN in relation to Sam Raimi's trilogy. In that comparison, it did take an entire film before the movie loosened up a bit as the upcoming THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 looks a lot funnier and not quite as stark as the first movie.
