In an interview with MTV.com, upcoming Human Torch – Michael B. Jordan is talking about the new Fantastic Four movie and how it isn’t as locked in as people would expect…
As much as everybody thinks that these projects are cemented in years before, they’re not. There’s so many things that you just can’t account for. You know, you can try and plan as much as you want, but you get there on game day and you get thrown a curve ball, I guess, hey, the game plan goes out the window. You’ve got to adapt.
Josh’s vision is very clear and he knows exactly what he wants, and he gives us room to adapt and to play. That’s what I kind of think sets us apart, is that this is going to be grounded and unconventional.
It’s not your typical superhero film, you know, we aren’t looking at this as like, being superheroes. We’re more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities now that we have to cope with, and try to find a life afterwards – try to be as normal as we can.
I can see the Ben Grimm thinking about his transformation as a disability, but its hard to think of the rest of the team that way. Everything I hear about this movie sounds more and more like a train wreck.
To help director Josh Trank avoid the problems of the previous movies… Cinema Sins posted this yesterday.
