Michael B. Jordan says The Fantastic Four is not your typical superhero film

Jul. 18, 2014by:

While production has already started on Fox's THE FANTASTIC FOUR there is little to no details on Josh Trank's (CHRONICLE) reboot. Kate Mara, who was cast as Sue Storm, said the plot for THE FANTASTIC FOUR won't be based on the comics, so not much to go by. We might see something from Hall H panel at this year’s Comic-Con but in the meantime Michael B. Jordan, who plays Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the film, was asked about the upcoming reboot in a discussion with MTV and mentioned some interesting things about the project.

Jordan noted how the script has changed quite frequently during production:

“The script is evolving, [you make] on set decisions on the fly, things are always constantly changing. Me personally, I block out that extra noise and I focus on the job I have to do. It is an important film for all of us. We’re taking it seriously, taking a lot of risks. I think it’s going to pay off… As much as everybody thinks that these projects are cemented in years before, they’re not. There’s so many things that you just can’t account for. You know, you can try and plan as much as you want, but you get there on game day and you get thrown a curve ball, I guess, hey, the game plan goes out the window. You’ve got to adapt.”

He talked about Trank’s vision for the Marvel adaptation:

“Josh’s vision is very clear and he knows exactly what he wants, and he gives us room to adapt and to play. That’s what I kind of think sets us apart, is that this is going to be grounded and unconventional.”

Jordan also doesn’t see the Fantastic Four as superheroes:

“It’s not your typical superhero film, you know, we aren’t looking at this as like, being superheroes. We’re more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities now that we have to cope with, and try to find a life afterwards – try to be as normal as we can.”

The more I hear about the movie, the more I have no idea what to expect. I keep picturing a lot of shaky cam and can already hear a lot of confident sarcasm from Miles Teller (he's good at that). Jordan is a great young actor (you must watch (FRUITVALE STATION) and it sounds like he has a lot of passion when it comes to THE FANTASTIC FOUR, let's hope it pays off. Might we see some footage next week? Stay with us as we cover the 2014 Comic-con and keep you in the know.

Jordan is joined by Jamie Bell, Kate Mara and Miles Teller who will play the titular four. Toby Kebbell will also appear as Victor Von Doom along with Reg E. Cathey as Dr. Franklin Storm and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man.

THE FANTASTIC FOUR is set for release on June 19, 2015.

So they are improvising and changing the script, and he has to "block out all the noise" and just do his job. Sounds like an epic disaster her. It is mad chaos. They are working on a project that is still being developed. This is a recipe for disaster. I am not sure the budget of this, but I doubt they will break even..The advertising campaign is bad, when the cast speak of it, it sounds like a mess. Their core audience is alienated. I'd seriously but down the hammer on this if I were

The entire tone of Jordan's interview sounds depressed and down.

Let's hope it's as different and clever as they think it will be, but to reboot a very specifically themed comicbook license by ditching what makes it recognisable smacks of arrogance and using the Fantastic Four name to add marketability to an unrelated concept. That and trying to hold onto the franchise rights while not having to make a film people might associate with the previous films. It's an odd scenario and if nothing else at this stage a major PR balls up. I'm still intrigued to see

Every new piece of info about this film makes me want to avoid it more than the last.

I think he is right about it not being a typical superhero movie, because typically superhero films are successful. I hope this one flops like a fish out of water.

If this movie is such a different take on the fantastic four so that it is barely recognizable as fantastic four why not just make it something other than fantastic four? Why ruin it?

Simply because if they don't do it on time, the rights revert to Marvel/Disney...
And FOX would rather loose lot of money by doing a (most probably) bad (so far from) FF movie which tank, than loosing the right to make more films latter...

There may be a silver lining here....

Maybe this film will collapse so badly that Kate Mara will be forced to do movies with excessive nudity before she's too old for us to care......

Sounds Awful

You know, I wish they would have stayed faithful to the source material but I do like Jordan so I'm willing to have an open mind. That being said, from this interview, the film sounds like a disaster. It sounds similar to Alien 3 if the script is changing every day.

If it's not based on the comic, what's the point?

The phrase "not your typical comic book movie" always seems to preface the release of a crappy comic book movie.

Its simple

I totally get the anger over this movie and I'm one of the angry ones. The point for me is that even if the movie is good, it's by their own admission not based on the comic and so it would seem NOT to be the Fantastic 4 in anything but title. That means that those of us who would like to see the characters we enjoyed growing up done right (of course the previous attempt was not good), will still not get to see it. If Trank had an original idea that was independent of the source material then

If Trank had an original idea that was independent of the source material then he should have gone all the way and created new characters for his story. There are plenty of ways to bring originality while also honoring the source material (instead of tossing it put the window). See Doc Ock surgery scene by Raimi in Spiderman 2 for example. I would like to see Tranks movie, but I would LOVE to see the Fantastic 4.

I also agree. The problem is that if Trank's movie fails (and the anger over every announcement makes this a real possibility), it will be the third time a F4 movie fails, and I'm not counting Roger Corman's version. There's a real possibility the source material will be blamed for these repeated failures and that Josh Trank is currently destroying the last chance we have to see a faithful version.

t's a tough one but there is a possible good outcome to that - the studio loses confidence in the franchise, Marvel buy it back (I believe they would). They know their properties well and give it a go their way. Could be wishful thinking but if this one fails, stranger things have happened right? Still, we're a hell of a long way from that

Marvel doesn't have to buy it back. If Fox loses confidence in the franchise, they will let the rights expire and it will go back to Marvel for free. What I'm saying is that, even if they have the right people to do the film and have the right idea, it's going to be really hard for the general public to give a chance to a franchise that keeps churning out bad movies.

I see your point. I suppose one way would be for Marvel to wait and then gradually reintroduce them in other hero movies. It would require some thought. Worked for the Hulk (although I guess he didn't sink quite so low).

Yeah, being able to fly or turn yourself invisible - what a fucking disadvantage that must be in life.

WTF

I'm not judging a movie I haven't seen, I'm judging decisions I disagree with.
Good cast ? Yeah, like it will be the first movie with a 'great cast' to become shite.
I want my 'source material' respected ? YES ! OR DON'T CALL IT FF !
I'm racist because I want my hero, who has ALWAYS been white, to stay like he was intended to be in the first place ? Isn't it racist from you to say that ?

I'm not a hater. Always believe in giving movies a chance.

This is sounding shitter and shitter all the time though. Who knows, maybe it will be like Rise of the Apes. Everyone will slag it off and it turns out to be rather good instead.
I hope so, I really do. The odds are stacked against it though and it seems to be doing it's utmost to alienate FF fans.

They are going to be all emo for 90% of the movie, beat Dr. Doom and the big end will be them deciding to use their powers as [link]

Haha oh my God, shut up. It's just a movie for fucks sake. None of you know more than anyone else on this site about the story, costumes, villain's, etc. None of you know whether it's going to be shit, or amazing. Voice your opinions all you want about what your vague interpretations, but there is not so much as a set photo out, so just relax before you all wet your panties. My opinion? I think it sounds cool. I'll wait for a trailer before I decide if I want to see it or not in theaters.

It's not your typical superhero flick in that I don't wanna see this one. We missed our chance at FF3: The Fall of Atlantis where Doom sank to Atlantis and soured Namor on humans, leading to the attack on our world by the ocean dwellers and Namor tries to take Sue as his queen. This new one, while I will wait and see, doesn't have my attention. I'm okay with everyone but Miles Teller. He annoys the piss out of me in every movie I see him in.

I have a feeling this movie is going to be about the Fantastic Four the same way that the Super Mario Bros movie was about the Super Mario Bros. A lot of people will probably enjoy it for what it is, but not for what it's supposed to be.

If this movie tanks, it won't be the cast's fault

They're all fine young actors and they'll hopefully move on to bigger and better things. However, it's going to take a lot for me to think this movie will be a home run. It's obvious the preproduction isn't there, which is a major problem for a film of this magnitude.

I'm looking foward to seeing what the filmmakers having in mind. Even though the cast is alot younger than i would have liked, these are young fantastic actors who can hopefully breathe some new life into the franchise. As a comic book fan i don't mind the studio changing things because as much as people don't like to admit we are a minority to the majority of movie-goers. So i have a wait and see approach.

Why not just create an original team and story?

Everything I am reading is telling me to forget about the source material because this is going to be very different. In that case, why not create something new? Why take the name of an established property just to do your own thing? Name recognition it would seem, but when those that are familiar with the name realize you have completely changed a huge chunk of what is associated with that name, you've lost that group, so the name recognition fails in its mission.

I'm numb to the whole

I'm numb to the whole thing at this point, but who knows, maybe I will be blown away at how amazing it ultimately is. I seriously doubt it, but at this point, I have no clue what I am getting. It certainly isn't the F4 that I am familiar with.

The simple fact that Trank is ignoring comic [link] it! I'm tired of explaining why this movie is a bad idea....between being called a racist and not open to new ideas, I'm tired!

I keep getting downgraded, but let me ask everyone who has given me and the Soloist a negative vote: They are not following canon, and it's a "different take" on the FF legend. Besides the fact most of the actors and the director are talented (with the exception of this movie), if they are taking a different take on the FF canon, and re-imaging the characters, how is it an FF movie????

Until I see some footage/trailer anything is possible with this movie. However, you said it yourself, there are talented people behind this film, shouldn't that be enough? If you get enough talented people behind something they're passionate about, don't you think they're going to do their best to put out what they think is the best story/film imaginable?

So they're doing new things and changing the canon, do you have a right to be mad? Yeah sure, however by changing the canon, we can

Yeah sure, however by changing the canon, we can once again be surprised and not know immediately where the story's going to go. It'll still be FF4, but different, just like how Star Trek is still star trek, but different.

Because apparently some of you can see the future. You know the film will be shit based on what exactly? The casting choices that upset you or the fact the film isn't based on an existing story found in the comics?

Seriously?

If you're baking a cake, and you mix dog shit into the batter, and top it off with cat shit frosting, what kind of cake will you get? Apparently, since you can't foresee the future, you'll have to eat the cake to know if it taste like shit or not.

Hey crying fanboys.

how about trying something new folks. Instead of judging a film solely on casting, why not wait to see some footage on it first? Sounds crazy I know, but remember when the world flipped it's shit when Heath Ledger was casted as the joker? Turned out pretty fucking awesome.

Also, I'm psyched for this actually, the first 2 Fantastic Four Movies were sub par, and you got the director/writer from chronicle as well as the writer for X Men DOFP.. They know what they're doing and will handle the

They know what they're doing and will handle the franchise with care and a vision hopefully in which we haven't seen before. I always welcome a new take on anything and am anxious to see some footage when it comes out.

It's not your typical superhero movie because most superhero films that come out these days are great, but this film will most not be great. It will be one big piece of shit that doesn't follow it's original source material.

It doesn't follow the source material? Based on what? Your racist beliefs that Jordan can't be the human torch? Or are you still whining about the casting? Get over it.

Or ,you know, based on the director and one of the actors saying that it's not based on the source material and now Jordan saying things like "We’re more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities" as apposed to the first family of Marvel. But no, you're right, we just like burning crosses and remembering the "old days".

herc- Apparently a lot of you like to burn crosses (see soloist) for no apparent reason because again, not a single image has been shown yet. Chronicle was based on a bunch of kids getting powers and that turned out to be a fantastic movie. People were bashing and freaked out X-Men: First Class and Quicksilver from DOFP just because of how they looked and what happened there? Both were 100x better than expected. You bring up the "old days" so I'm assuming the old incarnations of the Fantastic

Maybe a new look/vision/story is what this franchise needs.

So they're trying something new that some people don't agree with? Big freakin deal, I'd rather see a filmmaker try to take a franchise and make it his own (like Burton and Nolan did w/ Batman, or Singer w/ X-Men) and potentially fail then go bit for bit from the comics.

Bitch and moan all you want, burn as many crosses, but you know deep down that you're judging something by simple word of mouth instead of seeing it for yourself.

By the way soloist, what source material is it not following? Their still gonna get their powers, they're still gonna fight Dr. Doom. Where's the problem?

sorry zombie, i dont usually agree with soloist, but its not a racist belief, theyve flat out said that its not based on the comics and josh trank asked them not to read any of the comics etc. this movie IS a trainwreck to watch.

especially this "We’re more or less a bunch of kids" WTF? when were the fantastic four children?
