In an era where most superhero films come with an army of advanced promotional material, the Twentieth Century Fox reboot of “Fantastic Four” stands out as an anomaly. Due in theaters this August, the Josh Trank film has unveiled precious few of its secrets so far, beyond a teaser trailer and handful of photos featuring cast members Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.
“I wish I could tell people there are six of us. It’s really the ‘Fantastic Six’!” Teller joked during an interview with The Huffington Post on Friday. “We created two characters on our own.”
While extra superheroes are unlikely to appear, Teller, who plays Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic in the film, wouldn’t necessarily know either way. He hasn’t seen the finished product yet and only watched the film’s trailer a half-day before the general public.
“It’s going to be really interesting to be a part of a movie that size,” he said, before expressing hope that people think “Fantastic Four” is “good enough” to push the sequel forward. (The second “Fantastic Four” film is already scheduled for release in June of 2017.) “I’m as excited as everybody else is to see what it looks like.”
Teller can be seen in “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” in theaters on March 20. A full interview with Teller about the film will run closer to release.
