Miles Tellers says Fantastic Four series will be ‘cooler’ with ‘more super hero stuff’


Miles Teller (Whiplash) is playing Reed Richard in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot by director Josh Trank (Chronicle). He talks to MovieFone about the inspiration for the film, writer/producer Simon Kinberg’s importance at Fox, and whether Trank is going to do the sequel.

It’s known that the film is going to be inspired by the Ultimate version of the Fantastic Four, and Teller echos that the film is “taking a lot from the Ultimate Fantastic Four, but I think we’re humanizing these characters in a way that’s never been done.”

As for Trank, Teller said that he doesn’t know if he’ll be returning as director, but is positive that Kinberg will still be part of the upcoming sequel.

“He is so good at creating those worlds,” Teller said. “He’s invaluable to Fox. He’s really smart and seems to have a good handle on these worlds and what he was able to do with X-Men and being able to re-energize that with the younger cast.”

It looks like the Fantastic Four will be evolving, with the team we know and love doing more super hero things in the sequel.

“I mean, the more superhero stuff you get to do, the cooler it is. We’ll see what happens, but yes, absolutely, as the thing evolves they should start to materialize to the Fantastic Four people more readily associate with.”

Fantastic Four hits theaters on August 7, 2015.
