Wall talking to Eric Walkuski about his new film War Dogs, actor Miles Teller was asked about the movie he was in last summer. Teller played Reed Richards in Fox’s latest attempt at a Fantastic Four movie. And where the film was not loved by fans nor critics and only took in $56 million, the actor said he would be willing to do a sequel.
Yeah, for sure. I loved the cast, I loved the characters. I think it’s such an interesting dynamic. I love how much they really need to rely on each other. This Avengers thing, they’ve kind of created their own Fantastic Four in a way, Marvel’s first family. Their powers can’t just exist on their own, you need Thor to do this, the Hulk to do his thing. So yeah, absolutely, I would do another one.
And if he is weary of diving into the superhero genre again.
Obviously you learn more as you go on; for me I’ve really enjoyed the fact that I’ve been able to work in pretty much every genre. There’s a lot of different factors you’re going to take into account. I think script is super important, and director. The director is going to be the most powerful person in terms of what that final product is. But shit, Whiplash was Damian’s first feature, who would have known? I did that because of the script. I think certain things you can get sort of disenfranchised with a little bit. But I wouldn’t change anything. I can honestly say I’ve never just done something for money; I’d be really embarrassed for something like that to come out, that I had no attachment to the character, no attachment to the script. It takes a while before you’re only working with the best directors, nobody’s career is flawless.
Though you’d think that the possibility of a sequel would be slim, there is still the question of the rights and Fox will need to make another film before too long to retain those rights.
