Fox's The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past have been soaking all of the attention as of late, but Mark Millar, the creative consultant for Fox's Marvel films, is putting the spotlight back on the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Today via Twitter he confirmed that the director of X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass will produce the film.
Josh Trank is directing the reboot and if you're wondering who he is, he's the dude that directed the rather awesome film, Chronicle. The trio of Vaughn, Trank and Millar all working on this one definitely has my expectations raised. It really feels like Fox is stepping up their game when it comes to their Marvel properties, so here's hoping they live up to the hype. Millar has previously hinted he'd like for the properties to crossover, too, and that's something absolutely worth looking forward to.
Viners, do you think Fox is going to impress us with their next batch of films? Fantastic Four is slated for a March 6, 2015 release.
