Mark Millar has never been one to shy away from an interview, and it seems that his new position as Fox’s creative consultant on all things Marvel has done little to dull his appetite for a soundbite.
Millar has been busy talking up the Fantastic Four reboot, revealing a few tidbits about the direction Josh Trank will be taking the franchise.
“From what I’ve seen and from talking to him – he and I have had dinner a couple of times and we talk quite regularly as well – he’s contemporizing it,” says Millar. “I think he’s just making it work for the screen – he’s a great storyteller.
“What I wasn’t expecting actually was just how funny and likeable he could make this as well as getting the more awesome moments on screen,” he continues. “I use awesome in the traditional British sense and not the California sense awesome, you know?
“The Ridley Scott moments, and the Fantastic Four really are jaw-dropping in the same way you feel when you saw Alien for the first time, there’s some moments in this – not to be specific – that are actually gonna be phenomenal on screen and stuff you haven’t seen in a superhero movie before.”
Fantastic Four will open in the US on 6 March 2015.
