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

http://www.slashfilm.com/fantastic-f...photo-twitter/

Well, that was quick. Filming has ended on this shoot and Kate Mara posted a selfie of herself and the other 3 (not in costume, before you get excited) to mark it.

Other than the purported Thing pic (which I think was real, as other pages reported being asked to take it down), there hasn't been a peep from the makers of this film during the shoot. This could be interpreted as Abrams-like secrecy but, as the link I posted suggests, it's odd, particularly given that comic-con was last week. Given the negative buzz that seems to be circling the movie (I could be wrong but from what I've seen on other sites and pages, the mostly negative response on this thread is fairly representative of a lot of fan attitude, while Marvel are apparently doing little to publicise the FF in the comic world), one would've thought it might've been a good move to release a pic of them in character and maybe silence the critics.

Maybe Fox is holding back its marketing of the film but am I the only one wondering if eyre preparing to let it die?

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

If they're done filming, they're clearly not prepared to let it die. It would make no sense. They could at least release the film, protect their rights, and sell it back to Marvel (as opposed to stopping the film, losing their rights, and having it revert back to Marvel free of charge). If I'm lucky enough to find the link I'll post it, but Marvel has flat out denied sabotaging their comics with the hopes of hurting Fox and getting their rights back.

But I agree with your greater point that it's surprising they finished filming so quickly and twice as surprising that they didn't have anything for SDCC if they were that close to finishing.

I could link to the released film with the same quote, though. My point is they're not going to pretend to film a movie. They're either going to film it or not film it.

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

Google can't find pictures of Kate Mara in her invisible girl outfit.

She may have the body of a 9 year old boy, but I like cosplay.

Something wiggy is going on.

Meanwhile can you imagine the new movie's costume designer going into a radical excitation as he, or she finally put their work to rest because they saw the new reboot of the comic (6 months ago) where the new fantastic four costumes were "RED" and black instead of blue and black?

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

How the hell did they film an entire movie without a single spy shot?!

I can only assume this was shot entirely on sound stages.

Which doesn't bode well for the realism and scale of the film....

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

As of a couple of weeks ago, Kate Mara had not seen a Fantastic Four costume in the film. Now that filming is done, I think it's safe to say there are no uniforms or they appear only at the end. I'm OK with that since the Fantastic Four didn't start with uniforms either.

Maybe 'die' was the wrong word. I'm not suggesting that Fox won't release the film. But does it perhaps look like they have no faith in it being a successful franchise and aren't going to waste time and money promoting it?

Maybe they have a strategy re its promotion and are going to play a long game. But considering that we've seen pics from Batman v Superman already or compared to the promotion which some of Fox's X-Men verse films got well in advance, this does seem at best to be an extremely muted promotional strategy.

It can't be worse than Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Bite the ####ing bullet already.

Don't get me wrong, I get the feeling the movie will feel "small." The fast filming just seems like it doesn't have a wide scope or lots of set pieces and locations.

Is this a thing now? Is there really a theory that Fox has no intentions of releasing the film? Because this is the first time I've ever heard anyone suggest that.

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

4 or 5 posts up.

No booth at Comicon.

Maybe they'll release the pic, but they're not proud about it.

I would start my Fantastic Four movie with a pregnant Sue, shortly after the death of Reed Richards, in her maternity miniskirt (It was a the 70s. jack was a weirdo or I'm imagining things.) trying to decide if she's going to start dating Dr Doom or Namor...

Julian McMahon is Australian. Try to imagine if the Latverian accent was INDISTINGUISHABLE from an Australian accent?

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

I didn't realize they had even started filming.
I do agree that the lack of promotion, especially at Comic-Con, does seem kind of odd. I had just assumed they didn't have anything done to show yet, but if they're done filming you'd think there would be something they could show somewhere.

Not saying this is necessarily the case, but, wouldn't it be nice if they weren't at Comic-Con and aren't deluging social media and entertainment hype chambers because they're putting all their focus on actually making a good movie?

I'm not saying you can't do both - DOFP was at Comic-Con last year, and it's outstanding. But I haven't been to any movie Cons, yet am already sick to death of BvS: D'oh!, and am dreading two more damn years of hearing about it every other damn week, when I'm 90% sure it's gonna end up sucking anyway.
