Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

Writer/producer Simon Kinberg discusses the tone of the film and the casting.

One passage that I found particularly interesting:
"As Singer created with the original 'X-Men' movies, Christopher Nolan created with the 'Dark Knight' movies, Jon Favreau and Marvel created with the 'Iron Man' movies, all the best superhero franchises - Sam Raimi did it with with 'Spider-Man' - they create a tone and that is the thing that defines them," Kinberg insists. "It's not the stories that differentiate them from each other. Sometimes the characterizations aren't that distinct. It's that the tone is different and in some ways [that's because of the] lessons learned from the original 'Fantastic Four' movies, but also because of Josh Trank's natural instinct for more realism, for more of a dramatic approach to things. This will definitely be a more realistic, a more gritty, grounded telling of the 'Fantastic Four'
Because the Fantastic Four are all about being gritty, grounded, and realistic.
