Fantastic Four Reboot's Kate Mara Shares Pic to Mark End of Filming

Fantastic Four Better

Kate Mara, who plays the Invisible Woman in Fox's Fantastic Four movie reboot, has shared an image with the entire cast to mark the end of filming.

While we already reported that Fox's upcoming Fantastic Four won't be based on any comic book and will show a new (grounded) origins story for the team, that's as far as we know when it comes to the reboot. Over on Twitter, Kate Mara, who plays Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), has now shared our "first look" at the team all assembled together. Unfortunately, though, it doesn't seem to be from the actual set, but a group selfie with the rest of the team to celebrate wrapping up Fantastic Four. Captioned with "That's a wrap on Fantastic Four, it doesn't specify if this means entire production has wrapped, or just filming. I'd say it's the latter given that we haven't even seen a logo or a trailer for the superhero flick.

Joining Mara in the movie (and image) are Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as the Thing. The as-of-yet-untitled Fantastic Four reboot will be directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) for a targeted June 19, 2015 theater release.

Are you optimistic this Fantastic Four film reboot will turn out well or should we be concerned that Comic-Con has come and gone and we didn't even see a single screen? Do you think this new Fantastic Four film can even come out worse than its two predecessors?

How the hell did they film it so fast? Unless most the film is-oh right.

Well, it can't be worse then Silver Surfer. I mean, I can be, but we all hope it isn't

I really couldn't care less for this, re-boots are getting out of hand...

For example the spiderman reboot - why?

I understand bringing old stuff back - star treks return for example

But why reboot this, why not do a new story?

Exactly what I was thinking. I mean, we don't even have a logo, or teaser! O_o It can't be worse than Rise of the Silver Surfer, right? Right?!

Ugh! Just fucking ugh! You have three people that appear to have been pulled directly from Generic Teen TV Show #1445 and the guy who starred in Turn on AMC that had all the charisma of a moldly cabbage. This film is going to be painful.

Yep. I want to say it cant possibly be worse than the previous FF...but I'm afraid it will be.

To hold onto to the copyright: if they don't produce movies at regular interval X, they get handed over back to the original holder, ie Marvel.

So unless they want to give up a superhero license, which is incredibly profitable right now, they will keep making movies.

Also reboot < creativity in terms of expenses.

A more grounded origin? Seriously? There is still going to be a rock man, a human flaming man, a woman that turns invisible and a man that stretches his body. What is the point of a grounded origin when they all end up with crazy powers? Just let them get blasted by cosmic rays. This is what i hate, companies that have zero respect for the source material. If they are to scared to make the movie like the comics its based off then they should just not make the movie.

I actually like the other 2 FF movies, they wernt perfect but they were fun. The tone was correct for me. Getting sick of everything having to be dark, moody and realistic.

Huh.

Was expecting this to be a picture of an empty room. Due to, you know, invisible.

So presumably either Sue or Johnny is adopted in this version, or am I missing something?

Magnethead:

Or both, or mixed racial parents. Presumably.

How the hell were they able to film so quickly?

Hopefully black Johnny Storm will be the good part of an otherwise terrible movie, because it would be hilarious to see all the haters of race/gender-bending in comic books eat their words yet again.

I don't mind race/gender bending, but if you have characters that are supposedly brother and sister are of different race, it's getting pretty stupid. And if they are not related, what is the point of keeping the names? "s/he is adopted" is just lazy writing.

I had no idea this thing was that far into production.

I like both Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara so I hope they play there parts well, cant say im fussed on the casting of Thing and Reed but heres to hoping this doesn't suck.

Once people start getting tired of complaining about interracial related characters, soon it will be inter-species. Cant wait for the next FF where Sue Storm is played by an American actress and Johnny Storm is played by a Labrador.

Did you seriously just compare a white character being played by a black person to a white character being played by a dog

I don't.....I just......why do they have to look like sodding teenagers? I mean, I get the best actor for the role gets the part, but surely if anybody should be played by an adult, it's Mr Fantastic? I know he's not exactly an elder statesman in the Marvel Universe, but he's definitely an important figure. Could you see Professor X or Tony Stark or Nick Fury taking advice from this foetus?

Was nothing racist in my comment - your looking way to hard. I was joking on the fact that inter racial/racial is the in thing to moan about (now people stopped complaining about woman in games). Once people have dealt with those issue in movies the next thing will be inter species. So when they reboot FF again people will complain why one of the characters isnt not portrayed as an animal. Ok, Sue Storm can be played by a Pigeon and Johnny Storm played by a Chinese man.

well that was fast, and already looks like shit lol. I dont know the first 2 films were very meh. This just feels like HEY REMEMBER FANTASTIC 4 ?! give us money !!!!

No, but I want a raccoon and a talking tree in my movies!

this is one of the few times I've actively wanted a movie to bomb, not because of any casting decisions but because this is an even more blatant "just to keep the license" movie than the Roger Corman Fantastic Four,

worse it doesn't have any hype going for it and the general buzz has been mostly negative (even ignoring people ranting about the human torch being race swapped), and at the end of the day I have no idea who the movie is for aside from suits, because this isn't going to appeal to the comics fans and there's nothing out there to show the movie itself, I've not heard or seen any leaked costume pictures or pre-release Thing effects, and there's been nothing to engage the average movie goer, no big name star or director.

Oh you mean the Fantastic 4 movie that's not based on the comics and is basically the Fantastic 4 in name only. Yeah not holding my breath that that will be any good.

I grew up on Fantastic Four. It was the first comic series I started reading. I see nothing in that picture that even comes close to anything called FF. It looks like the cast of a CW show on one of their lower ratings nights. Fantastic Four is supposed to be about adults. Accomplished people. The worlds best educated scientists and astronauts and mad scientists and such going out and adventuring. Seeking the unknown. This looks like something out of the Buffy'verse. Fantastic Four should not be "Real Genius's" or "Weird Science" . They actually tried that as a comic in the Ultimate books and it failed horribly... Twice.

The weird thing is having seen the Unreleased Roger Corman one... It was by far the best and most faithful FF movie yet made.

I almost wrote this
I'm officially a 30something then, cause the thought of looking at these 20somethings drags me down.

But then I looked it up and Mara is actually my age, and the others are late 20s. I'm so confused.

I liked Michael B Jordans performance in Parenthood, and anyone who's seen Kate Mara in American Horror Story or House of Cards does NOT want to think of her as a teen.

I still have a bad feeling about this movie. Hopefully it turns out better quality than that selfie. That is some Fantastic Duckface there Mr Richards.

I don't see why it has to be a reboot instead of just a new story with different actors, but oh well. Hopefully it won't be as awful as the first two. Also, I'm guessing it's going to fail on the realistic message if the filming is done now. They must be adding in all those totally realistic effects.

I didn't think the first two were that bad, gassy Galactus notwithstanding.

According to imdb there are two of these planned so the studio has a lot more confidence in this than I do. Regardless of the actors' real ages they all should get off my lawn look too young. There has been astonishingly little hype around this film so far that it does seem like it's coming out of nowhere.

Don't care. I can't see this being good. Ignoring the obvious elephant in the room (Reed should have grey hair on the side of his head), I just can't have much faith in the movie.

A more down to earth origin? Is that code for grim-dark BS? Because that makes so many movies better. Not like Avengers, a movie that wasn't grim or dark, made tons of money. Not like Guardians of the Galaxy made money. Nope.

Well, if that's the case, maybe Marvel can use that as grounds to get the rights back. I say this mostly so we can have Doctor Doom fight the Avengers at some point. Because that would be awesome.

NOLANIZATION! If it works for The Bat, it works for anything! It's like putting Sri Racha on everything, and has much the same burning sensation.

Thank you both. I was worried that I was the only one who thought they were looking way too young. Seriously, I thought this was going to be some High School Musical spin off, or perhaps another Step Up.

Wow they filmed that fast...I wonder if we'll be able to watch this one or if this is going to be another case of what happened in the 90's; where there's a film and plans to make more but only to keep mean old-man Marvel/Disney from getting the rights back.

sniddy:

I am of the opinion that filmmakers really hate Uncle Ben.

Sigmund Av Volsung:

But that doesn't mandate a reboot.

Nor does that, since they seem to spend so much time differentiating the stories.

thaluikhain:

Yeah, as hard as it is to believe, you actually can be blood siblings with someone significantly darker or lighter than you.

I think the bigger question is why someone would care in the first place. In a world where a person can turn into a rock man because "cosmic rays," do we even really need to worry about inherited traits?

SonOfVoorhees:

Or you are. He didn't say racism.

Now if only we could convince everyone not to go so it doesn't make any money.

Nice avatar BTW.

welp... incoming radioactive turd made solely to maintain a license.
