Fantastic Four Cast Talks X-Men (Video)


Are there any connections between the X-Men and the Fantastic Four?

Maybe in Miles Teller’s wildest dreams.

MTV interviewed the cast questioning if there are any references to the X-Men in Fantastic Four as they could be set in the same universe, and Simon Kinberg is involved with both franchises.

Nothing much is offered other than Teller stating about Kinberg: “He is the most important dude at Fox. Fore sure. He creates all those worlds. He does it beautifully. I love what he did with the X-Men.”

Teller and Kate Mara than joke about Reed Richards.

“I think you can tell Mystique falls in love with Reed,” Teller jokes.

Kate Mara than interjects, “My god. In your dreams.”

“I don’t tell Simon which beautiful actress to fall in love with Reed,” Teller says. “He just hit the nail on the head with Kate.  She loves it. She loved being the only girl on set. Oh my, God [laughter].”

Mara is than asked if it’s hard falling in love with Reed, where she makes it known she signed a multi-picture deal, which sounds like three movies.

“It’s impossible. I’ve got a couple more movies to make still. I have time,” Mara says.


“Fantastic Four” has an August 7, 2015 release directed by Josh Trank from a screenplay by Jeremy Slater, Simon Kinberg and Josh Trank; produced by Matthew Vaughn, Simon Kinberg, Hutch Parker, Robert Kulzar and Gregory Goodman; starring: Miles Teller, Michael B.
