So, Miles Teller says that the script is 'grounded.'

Now, it doesn't do to take actors' comments too much at face value but surely a film called 'FANTASTIC Four' by definition ought not to be grounded? I'm all for grounded when Batman or Daredevil are involved but a superhero team who includes a man made of rock, a human fireball and a real life stretch Armstrong? If ever there was a superhero film that doesn't have to be grounded, then this must be a contender.

Have to agree that grounded is not a good word choice for the FF. Although the characters could be grounded and the adventure Fantastic which would work out well.

^Yes, that would be fine by me too. I do hope that he's talking about the characters, rather than the adventure being grounded. Like I say, it doesn't do to put too much stock in how actors describe a project.

Well, the older generations are not hip enough to get such a fresh and novel new concept like the fantastic Four and they have to be protected from agitation.

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

Some of the cast of The Avengers called it grounded. It's a very loose term when it comes to superhero movies. It basically just means it's not Schumacher-esque.

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

What i hear when you say grounded, is that they won't let the roocket lift off.

Wasn't their ship grounded anyway and the Four had to break into it and subtly sneak into orbit when everyone else was sleeping?

I'll bet you any money you like their origin in this movie had nothing to do with rockets and cosmic rays.

Negative Zone transporter accident?

The matter transfer pad looked like Stage E at Burning Man.

Yeah, I'm not quite sure what to make of the "grounded" comment. Hopefully he means the characterizations and not the plot. I really think the Marvel movies have already proved that you can go more fantastic and it won't scare people off.

Originally, near the beginning at least, Galactus wore a miniskirt.

Grounded can eat my dick.

I want a super camp Fantastic Four movie... Yes, I've seen the Roger Corman version.

Possible list of contenders for the role of Doctor Doom. Unsurprisingly, given how young the FF are, they're also on the youthful side. I'm familiar with 3 of them anyway and while they're not obvious choices, I'd say that they bring a bit more clout and cred than Julian McMahon did.

Is it too good to be true? Unconfirmed word that Fox has fired Josh Trank, dumped the script and dumped the cast in order to start over?

I probably wouldn't believe except that Fox did this same thing with Daredevil at the 11th hour.

Not sure what the make of that. The Bleeding Cool guy does seem to get a fair amount of legitimate info though, so it isn't totally out of the realm of possibility.

You might think that but the new cast is actually around the same age's as the first cast in 2005


Ioan Gruffudd was 31--------Miles Teller is 27

Jessica alba was 23 -------Kate Mara is 31

Evans was 23-------Michael B jordan is 27

Chiklis was 41
