Reg E Cathey


The Baton Rouge-shot superhero flick shows us the true origins of the Four’s friendships and the birth of their powers. Tim Blake Nelson starts the trailer out by scolding Dr. Storm for spending millions of dollars without turning a profit or any valuable ideas. Dr. Storm, played by House of Cards star Reg E. Cathey, says that the future is bright with the addition of Reed Richards.

Miles Teller plays Reed Richards and I’m already a fan of his contagious nerd-isms. We see the Four’s relationships forming right before our eyes. We also find out that Kate Mara, Sue Storm, is the daughter of Dr. Storm and sister of Johnny Storm played by Michael B. Jordan. The Thing, played by Jamie Bell, will provide muscle and won’t let any of the other lab coats bully Richard Reed, it’s cool to see their polar opposite attitudes form an admirable relationship.

Reed Richards seems to form great relationships with each member of the Fantastic Four and he shows that he is a born leader. He is smart, courageous, loyal and wishes to get his friends back to normal. Fortunately, Johnny Storm wishes to use their powers to help people and save the world from Doom. Doctor Doom.

We finally get the much anticipated arrival of Doctor Doom. He looks evil, metallic, menacing and sports an incredible hoody. We traverse dimensions with the four (actually five, but it seems that the one dude will die on the journey) and we enter the world where inhabited by Doctor Doom.

A major plus for me as a viewer is the comedy and chemistry the cast has on screen together. Miles Teller seems to have the nerd comedy beats down to a science (pun intended!). He, along with Michael B. Jordan have a couple of sequences together that are sure to generate chuckles throughout the theater, the classic fist bump mishap for example. We also catch a budding kindergarten-like flirtatious love interest between Reed Richards and Sue Storm.

Aaron Williamson will play a Navy Seal in Fantastic Four. Read Aaron’s Health Scene column here. Check out some recent photos of Fantastic Four here. Fantastic Four flies into theaters August 7. Directed by Josh Trank, this re-imagining looks to be a thrill ride.

INT’L TRAILER: Baton Rouge-Shot ‘Fantastic Four’

by Jordan McGuire on April 6, 2015

Above is an international trailer for the Baton Rouge-shot flick Fantastic Four. You can watch the initial teaser trailer here. Still no answers to the “Be ready for what is coming” dialogue but we’re getting closer.

The new international trailer shows us some of the same images we saw in the first teaser trailer. The newest installment brings the four a little closer and reveals their powers more individually.

We see Johnny “flame on,” we see Sue Storm’s blue force-field, we see The Thing’s massive rock crushing power and we see Reed Richard’s flexibility for a brief second.

The Interstellar-esque theme continues with this international trailer. The corn fields and the endless world destruction reminds me of the imagery in Christopher Nolan’s most recent sci-fi epic. After recently binge watching and finally finishing season three of House of Cards, I couldn’t help but love Freddy’s (Reg E. Cathey) methodical voice-over narration. Still no sign of Toby Kebbell playing Victor Domachev but I’m sure it won’t be long before he shows up.

Fantastic Four is directed by Chronicle helmer Josh Trank. The superhero film stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell.

The film wrapped in Baton Rouge in early August 2014 and is set to be released August 7.

Kate Mara on ‘Fantastic Four’

by Kate Bannon on July 17, 2014

As the all-new Josh Trank-directed comic reboot Fantastic Four films in Baton Rouge, Kate Mara revealed a few clues about the film. Mara plays Susan “Sue” Storm aka The Invisible Woman.

In a recent interview with Esquire Mexico, Mara graces the cover of their July 2014 issue, chatting about her upcoming role. Thankfully, ComicBookMovies.com did the transcribing for us.

Q: How do you feel being the new Invisible Woman? It’s a big responsibility.

A: I don’t feel more responsibility with this role that I’ve felt with others. I understand that there are many fans of Fantastic Four and I guess they expect a lot from me, but I prefer not to be pressured by that. We are also trying to create a new way of seeing these superheroes, I’m focusing on making her (Susan Storm) as real as possible.

Q: Do you like comics?

A: I’ve never been a fan of comics, I’ve never actually read one. I was going to for this movie but the director said it wasn’t necessary. Well, actually he told us that we shouldn’t do it because the plot won’t be based on any history of anything already published. So I chose to follow his instructions. The one fact is I am a fan of comic book movies, so it’s very exciting to be part of a movie like this.

Q: What did you think when the audition for this movie? Were you nervous?

A: I was excited, but I only focused on doing the best I could. I think there are roles you get if that’s what needs to happen. I kept everything in perspective although expected to stay with the paper, because the movie has great actors like Michael B. Jordan (who will be the Human Torch).

Now fans have a completely original film to look forward to! The Fantastic Four reboot also stars Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell and Reg E. Cathey. After some significant CGI work, the film hits theaters June 19, 2013.
