‘Fantastic Four’ reboot to exist in same universe as ‘X-Men’
Mark Millar has revealed that the planned ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot of the movie franchise will most likely be set within the same universe as the popular X-Men movies.
The Kick-Ass creator and 20th Century Fox creative consultant claimed that the studio is planning to put characters from both franchises together on screen.
“Without question I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies,” Millar told SFX.
“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.”
Millar said that the previous Fantastic Four films from Fox were not all that good, but also revealed that he has a sentimental attachment to them because his daughter is a fan.
“For the new one, all they have to do is make it great. It sounds obvious and it is,” he said.
“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.
“Tim Story was seen as an odd choice for Fantastic Four, but when you have a Josh Trank you know you are in safe hands.”
Trank, the director of Chronicle, is rumoured to be targeting a 2015 release for The Fantastic Four.
Miles Teller, Girls’s Allison Williams and Michael B Jordan have all been rumoured for the cast.
