Can this superhero reboot be a little more fantastic?
Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox have confirmed that director Josh Trank will be involved in rebooting their Fantastic 4 film franchise. The acclaimed helmer has previously worked on the dark thriller Chronicle (2.5/5) and also appears to be connected to the proposed spin-off to the Spider-Man series Venom. For now, though, he'll be set to work on finding a new director (possibly himself?) and cast to breathe new life into this dead series, especially with the same threat as Amazing Spider-Man of having to convince viewers to see an origins story they watched just years before. The Fantastic 4 reboot is currently set for release in 2014.
