If you are asking yourself why like we are, see what Kate Mara is saying on the flip….
During a interview with IGN the 33-year-old responded to a question about the potential for a continuation of Josh Trank’s critically-maligned Fantastic Four reboot. Mara was there to talk about the sci-fi thriller Morgan, but Fantastic Four became the topic.
Kate, who played Sue Storm in the film, said
“Oh yeah, I would love to be a part of Fantastic Four sequel, or whatever they may or may not have in store for us.”
“I know all of the guys feel the same way. We love working with each other.”
Her costar, Miles Teller, recently revealed he, too, is interested in reprising his role of Mr. Fantastic. Teller told JoBlo earlier in August:
“Yeah, for sure. I loved the cast, I loved the characters. I think it’s such an interesting dynamic. I love how much they really need to rely on each other”
“This Avengers thing, they’ve kind of created their own Fantastic Four in a way, Marvel’s first family. Their powers can’t just exist on their own, you need Thor to do this, the Hulk to do his thing. So yeah, absolutely, I would do another one.”
If you look at the number Trank’s film cost around $120 million to produce, but grossed just under $168 million worldwide throughout its run. So it made money, but is SUCKED!
Toby Kebbell, who played the villainous Doctor Doom in the film, recently spoke out against the cut Fox released to theaters last year, which was reportedly much different from the film Trank originally set out to make.
“I tell you, the honest truth is [Trank] did cut a great film that you’ll never see.”
“That is a shame. A much darker version, and you’ll never see it.”
Maybe if they released Trank’s cut maybe he could redeem himself and fans might want a sequel. As it stands, if Fantastic Four was to come back, they need a better director, a way better storyline and Stan Lee to consult.
