Kate Mara Shares Celebratory FANTASTIC FOUR Image to Mark End of Filming

     August 2, 2014


One of the bigger “huh?” moments from this year’s Comic-Con was the complete lack of anything from 20th Century Fox’s The Fantastic Four.  Granted, director Josh Trank‘s superhero adaptation was in the midst of production and barreling towards a fast-approaching June 19, 2015 release date, but fans were hoping to see at least a title treatment or image from the pic.  Alas, no such preview emerged, but Invisible Girl herself Kate Mara has now shared a kind of Fantastic Four image by way of a celebratory selfie with her fellow FF members.  “That’s a wrap on Fantastic Four” the tweet reads, though it’s unclear if that means the entire production has wrapped, the principal castmembers have wrapped, or only Mara has wrapped.  Regardless, since we’ve seen nothing official from the film thus far, it’s kind of neat to see Mara, Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (Human Torch), and Jamie Bell (Thing) all together on the streets of New Orleans.

Hit the jump to check out the image for yourself.  Hopefully a genuine piece of Fantastic Four material will show up in the coming months.  The film also stars Toby Kebbell, Tim Blake Nelson, and Reg E. Cathey.

Check out the image below.

    This has BO flop written all over it. I know that the first thing that DOESN’T come to my mind when I see these KIDS together, is the FF. I mean, they all look like a bunch of teenagers. There is absolutely NO hype for this movie at all. Fox should have pulled the plug before this disaster even started filming.

    • Ozweego

      Couldn’t agree more. This is the first I have heard about this movie and I frequent Collider and other movie sites daily. Good Luck Fox, you’re going to need it.

    • TigerFIST

      I still can’t get over brother and sister are interracial

      • beefdong

        There’s no reason they couldn’t be step syblings. People in tight knit families consider their step family just as close as biological family. Sometimes even more.

      • Melwing

        There’s actually no reason they couldn’t share one parent, or even both (it does happen).

      • Ryan

        Yeah that’s true, but isn’t the point of color blind casting to not have to discuss race? This makes it inevitable that there will be some line in the movie explaining that or them showing a picture with the back dad and white mom or something. I’d much rather they cast a black Sue Storm. Hell, Jurnee Smollet from FNL would have been great.

      • LEM

        maybe step sybians.

    • Ted

      Some said that Guardians will be a flop and that Heath Ledger is no Joker. People should stop making assumptions about a film until they at LEAST see a trailer.

      • Theodore Trout

        I never said either of those things.
        I can smell this one from over here already.

      • Melwing

        Some said _____ (insert anything here)

      • Ted
      • M&M

        Yes, Ted, people did, in fact, say that.
        But this has big pile of steaming, putrid, worm-ridden piece of **** written all over it. Clearly the filmmakers (and studio suits) don’t give a F about the source material and are making this cinematic abortion so the film rights for FF don’t revert back to Marvel.
        What a shame.


        Then why didn’t they pull the same stunt for Daredevil?

      • Patrick Campbell

        They tried, but the production fell apart, and before they knew it, they lost the film rights. Now we’re getting the Marvel TV show instead.


        Exactly; which means their F4 film had to prove itself to Marvel that it is a legit film under the terms of the license and not a rights grab. There are quality clauses written into the contracts now that must prove the films are a genuine effort– unlike the Corman days.

      • M&M

        “quality clause”?
        Question: Do you know anything about contract law or did you just make that s**t up all by yourself?

    • Jeremy Flores

      I’m not a fan of the original films but you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    • Mezmero

      So let me get this right……without seeing one screen shot or one costume photo it’s a flop?? You are an idiot!! Just face it you are and their is no way around it,you just are. How does it feel to hate everything without seeing anything?

  • Manuel Orozco

    I doubt it’ll be good as the 2005 version but let’s cross our fingers by Christmas we’ll get a better picture of what the movie will be like

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      It couldn’t be much worse than the first two.

      • Manuel Orozco

        What do you mean

      • Jeremy Flores

        Lol the first 2 FF films are on par with Batman and Robin, Elektra, Catwoman, etc.

      • Manuel Orozco

        Forget about what I said ok but lets just see what happens

      • M&M

        And can and it will.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Entirely possible, but Trank did do a great job with Chronicle (which is better than anything in Tim Story’s filmography), so the potential for at very least a decent film is there.

  • SomeGuy

    I don’t really care much to see the Fantastic Four on the big screen just yet, but I doubt it will be any worse than the 2005 film. Additionally, I don’t really care for the fact that Johnny Storm is African-American and Susan Storm is not besides the fact that this comes off as Tokenism.

    • Kyle Chandler

      It might be, if Michael B. Jordan wasn’t pretty much the perfect fit for the human torch in every single way. The casting is spot on in his case. The rest? I dunno.

  • Armond white is my master now

    And the Razzie Award for the worst casting of the year is for… Yeah, you guess it! FANTASTIC F*CK!

  • DoremusJessup

    We don’t know the plot. We haven’t seen an image, let alone a trailer. So why all the hate for this movie already? Is it because there’s a black guy playing a traditionally white superhero? I’m not a big fan of either Miles Teller or Kate Mara, but I loved Chronicle and am excited for Trank’s take on the group. The last ones sucked. Fox NEVER does anything different with the X-Men movies (a million yawns later). Give it a chance. If its a good flick, I know I’ll visit this site and everyone will be praising it.

    • Jack Dennis

      this could be one of the best marvel movies of 2015.i think the cast has great potential and seeing that they’re young they have plenty of time to grow in there characters.chronicle was great and i can’t wait to see what josh trank has in store for this franchise.heres hoping simon kinbergs script was FANTASTIC.(ya i went there) lol

      • brNdon

        Except this is not a MARVEL movie.

      • Jack Dennis

        of course its a marvel movie.just not from marvel studios.

  • jk

    Why is Miles Fucking Teller playing Reed Richards? Decent actor, yes; Reed Richards, he’ll no!

    • jk

      Damn auto-correct!

      • Johnson

        You can turn it off, you know…

      • jk

        I did. Thanks mate!

  • Jax

    I think just because of the competition that week its gonna flop, but i could be wrong.

  • Jim

    A black human torch.. This will flop so hard!

    • eternalozzie

      (facepalm) … drive by trolling

    • dodge hickey

      Glad to see racism is alive and well.


      • Jim

        Not racism. Realism.He looks nothing like Johnny Storm ,mate.

      • Jack Dennis

        as long as he captures the essence of the character that doesn’t fucking matter

      • dodge hickey

        You are aware that Nick Fury was a middle aged white dude in the comics and then Samuel L Jackson was cast. It doesn’t matter what the skin color of the actor looks like, it’s the performance that counts.

    • Atlasshruggedmyass

      You wish. Get back to your “Sarah Palin” rally you Fox News Troll!

  • eternalozzie

    it will be interesting how they wrote the origin story with the characters being in their 20s … i like all the actors involved … will be interesting … i don’t have much of an attachment to F4 like I did other comics like Iron Man, Avengers, and others Marvel have mucked up. I will see it because I will watch almost anything … they could surprise us if the story is decent.

  • Napoleon

    Zero interest in this. MCU needs to get the rights back to the FF

  • lord jim

    fuck, hollywood just doesn´t get my favourite childhood comicbook heroes.the fantastic four are no college kids dammit!

  • Matt Wilkinson

    This might as well be another Corman FF. Aiming at keeping the rights and nothing else.

    • Kaine Morrison

      Except the Corman costumes were Page-Accurate!

  • IV_V_VI

    Regarding the red character on the very left, just behind Reed in the Collider slice: Could someone help with the name of the character, please? Genuinely interested. Thanks!

  • appolox

    Eh I think it’ll be good I just can’t picture being a big hit.

    • Raptor Jesus

      I’m skeptical, but on the other hand ‘Chronicle’ was pretty darn good.

      • appolox

        Yeah that’s the reason I think it will be good is cuz Chronicle was damn good. I just can’t picture it being a big hit. The general public seems to have a negative view on the Four, and they’ve never had too many fans in the modern era.

  • Redjester

    The outcry over the brother and sister being of different skin tones is a little ridiculous. Taking adoption out of the equation, if the mother is white, but the children have different fathers (one with a darker and one with a lighter skin tone), it is entirely plausible.

    I’d also like to add that all four of these ‘kids’ can act, so it’s not like this film is phoning it in, in regard to the quality of its cast either.

  • Colin Christian

    Awful casting. Did no one read the books? They are all too young.besides they already made a really good Fantastic Four movie,The Incredibles.

    • Strong Enough

      ultimates fantastic four is younger

      • MJ

        You really need to get out more…

      • Strong Enough

        stop up voting yourself you herb. its in bad taste

  • Strong Enough

    you motherfuckers actually think this will be worse than Story’s version? you are out of your fucking mind

    • MJ

      OK, call me a crazy mutherfucker then.

      • Strong Enough

        That piece of shit movie. everything will always be better than that

  • LEM

    This movie will be complete shit.

  • LEM

    This type of casting is why Marvel needs to somehow regain all the rights to their characters. It’s not just the pandering for black audiences but the overall glad handing behind the scenes instead of casting who’s best for the part.

    • Slade

      Casting whose best for the part? You haven’t even seen a glimpse of footage so how do you know that they are wrong for the part?

      • LEM


      • Slade

        Casting WHO’S best for the part? You haven’t even seen a glimpse of footage so how do you know that they are wrong for the part?

      • LEM

        I WANT to be proven wrong…I want them to make great movies instead of the paint by numbers, focus group approved crap they deliver.

  • MJ

    Was there ever a reboot that so few people cared so little about?

    This is going to be so bad that it will make the Charlie’s Angels franchise seem respectable by comparison. McG movies won’t seem that bad after all.

    • LEM

      Most reboots are dismissed as shit until proven otherwise.

      • lord jim

        most reboots/remakes are just shit.a few are entertaining but far from great.and five are great.

    That’s one ugly and random cast of superheroes

  • ʝoe βloggs

    Every bone in me wants to hate this…but I think we should just give it a chance until first visuals/videos come out.

    Then we can properly judge it.

    • LEM

      I always want the trailers to come out and blow me away but the initial reaction to these films is almost always right. I can’t remember the last time a movie released a trailer and changed my mind after I hated the casting/production process.

  • mattinacan

    Let’s be honest guys, there is no way this will be worse than the original two movies – they were embarrassing.

  • Billy

    I always knew that the human torch was black before he was white.You know ,like Michael Jackson.

    • JT

      lol ,good one :D

  • The Most Interesting Troll

    I don’t always hate the human torch ,but when I do ,he’s black.

    I will “NOT” be wasting my time or money on this film. They ruined this franchise. We’ll have to wait for the next remake when this fails. It’s a shame.

  • Yurine

    I don’t remember people screaming for a Fantastic Four remake.

  • Merlin235

    I didn’t even know they started filming, so the fact that they’ve wrapped came as quite a shock. Sure does show you how little interest there is in this film that no one attempted to leak photos of the set.

  • Hugo Danner

    The next Howard the Duck disaster! I guess the Duck jumped the shark! LOL Biggest disaster of 2016!

  • Jeff

    And Jamie Foxx is the next Batman.

    • ffs

      No ,no ,no.I say Michael B. Jordan again.He will be perfect. Let him play Thor aswell.

  • Mezmero

    Ever since they announced Johnny Storm will be black you fanboys have been bitching. I don’t mind the fanboys who are waiting for the trailer,I’m talking about the ones like ⬇️
