Doctor Doom will be very different in the new 'Fantastic Four' film

Sometimes, simple can be a good thing. Doctor Doom is one of the greatest villains in all the Marvel Universe, because as a character, he’s exactly what’s promised on the tin. He is a doctor who will bring you your doom. He is evil because he considers himself superior to the entire human race, and doesn’t mind expressing this by trying to rule it every once and a while. He’s the perfect match for a science-based team like the Fantastic Four, because he’s formidable in what they specialize in—science—as well as what they cannot accept: magic. This is something Mark Waid and the late Mike Wieringo masterfully illustrated in their classic (and highly recommended) Fantastic Four story “Unthinkable.”  

Next summer’s Fantastic Four film doesn’t seem to want anything to do with that.


'Chronicle' filmmaker Josh Trank directing 'Star Wars' spin-off

Man, this is one crowded galaxy …

While J.J. Abrams toils at Episode VII, launching a whole new trilogy of Star Wars films set three decades after the fall of the Empire and Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi, two other spin-off movies are also in the works.

High-level sources have previously told EW that one will be a story about young Han Solo, while the other will focus on the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Godzilla filmmaker Gareth Edwards is directing one, and now we know who will be handling the other — Chronicle director Josh Trank

We just don’t know who is doing which — or if the deal has been altered further, and we’ll be getting stories from totally new characters in the Star Wars universe. READ FULL STORY

'Fantastic Four' casting: Fox zeroes in on its final 4

It’s almost clobberin’ time. Twentieth Century Fox is in serious talks with a quartet of in-demand actors to cast its new Fantastic Four. According to The Wrap, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan are close to signing on for the superhero reboot from director Josh Trank. Jordan, who worked with Trank on Chronicle, has long been rumored to play Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, but Fox declined to confirm that a deal for the Fruitvale Station actor, or the other three stars, had been reached — yet.

Teller, who starred opposite Jordan in That Awkward Moment, is considered the frontrunner for Reed Richards, a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. Mara (House of Cards) reportedly recently auditioned for the role of Sue Storm, a.k.a. the Invisible Woman, and Bell (AMC’s upcoming series, Turn) is linked to the CG-enhanced rock-hulk, the Thing, a.k.a. Ben Grimm.

Don’t expect Fox to take too much more time to announce their superheros. Fantastic Four already has a release date of June 19, 2015.

The 'Fantastic Four' reboot has an official release date

Five years after the release of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer — which was a real movie ,and not just a nightmare you had after drinking too much Vitamin Water — Fox has announced an official release date for a Fantastic Four reboot. The film is currently slated to hit theaters on March 6, 2015. If that date holds, FF would kick off a year jam-packed with superteams: Marvel’s Avengers 2 has colonized May 2015, while Warner Bros. is racing to develop a Justice League movie for later that summer. Disney is also prepping Star Wars: Episode VII for a 2015 release, which means that 2015 will be the geekiest year in movie theaters. READ FULL STORY

'Chronicle': the movie that makes special effects special again

In Chronicle, the low-budget sci-fi sleeper hit about three high school dudes who suddenly find themselves blessed (or is it cursed?) with telekinetic powers, Andrew (Dane DeHaan), the most troubled and supernaturally gifted of the three, waves his hand, and a line of police cars shoot backwards as if hit by a tsunami. A baseball hovers in the air, human bodies fly up into the clouds, and a shopping cart rolls through a convenience store as if it had a mind of its own. Pringles potato chips and playing cards go flying. If any, or all, of these events strike you as the sort of routine cinematic wonders that you could easily behold in just about any fantasy film, from X-Men VIII: Superfreaks and Geeks to one made 30 or 40 years ago…well, you’d be right. Yet every time something out of the ordinary happens in Chronicle, it feels freshly minted and kind of awesome. For once (or, at least, for the first time in a long while), a movie’s special effects truly are…special. READ FULL STORY
