Yesterday saw an article published in the Latin version of Esquire Magazine that saw Kate Mara state she wasn’t a fan of the comic books; that director Josh Trank told her not to read them, and that the Fantastic Four Marvel Comics have nothing to do with the plot of the film.
Now, apparently, Kate Mara is backtracking on those statements as EW.com says they reached out to Mara’s reps (i.e. public relations team) who are saying Mara actually told Esquire’s reporter that the Fantastic Four movie is not based on one comic, but rather drawn from the entire canon.
Kate Mara is playing Sue Storm, aka Invisible Woman in the movie, with it already said the team(?) won’t be referred to as the “Fantastic Four” or wearing costumes.
“Fantastic Four” has a June 19, 2015 release directed by Josh Trank also starring Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm and Toby Kebbell as Victor von Doom.
