Fantastic Four Writer-Producer Simon Kinberg Defends Film: 'I Am Proud Of It. It’s Not A Disaster.'


On Aug. 7, audiences will finally get their chance to see Fox’s highly anticipated reboot of Fantastic Four. A darker take on the iconic comic-book franchise, Four has a great cast (Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell) and a talented director (Chronicle’s Josh Trank) but has been plagued with rumors of trouble for months.

EW sat down with Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past), who admitted the production was a challenging experience in many ways but defended this big budget film.

But you haven't even seen it...

And it's not like the other movies are modern classics.

Of course he's going to defend it...

That's not exactly the kind of thing you want a director to feel he has to say...

People have been claiming that the movie is bad since there was leaked test shot footage. You're probably right, but I'm tempted to give him the benefit of the doubt with all of the bad mouthing this unreleased, unreviewed movie has gotten.

That said, I'm not exactly anticipating this movie to be good, but I still feel that it's getting a lot of overdone flak based on what we've seen so far.

Even if this film turns out decent do you really think the people who've been screaming betrayal will acknowledge it? I don't its kind of sad we live in a world where fewer and fewer people go into something with an open mind.

This movie's gonna suck!!! It might be better than the earlier ones, but that's not saying much.

No worries. Im gonna see it. Looks good. Just dont let me down. If I can sit through Iron Man 3 and Thor I can see this.
