Speaking to Collider, Miles Teller, who plays Mr. Fantastic in The Fantastic Four, spoke a bit about what it feels like to be become part of such a large and historic franchise.
Teller says he and his co-stars are now forever part of the Fantastic Four’s history.
It’s great. There’s a couple of times where you’d be on set, and you’d be reminded – just based on the set, or the wardrobe, or whatever- that you are doing The Fantastic Four, and that’s cool, because it is such a huge, iconic comic and characters. So for me, it was a lot of fun. There’s very few moments on that where you’re not just excited to be there.
So that, but then also the fact that it’s a team. It’s a superhero franchise, but you’re sharing it. It’s me, Kat [Mara], Jamie [Bell], and Mike [Jordan]. There’s individual storylines, but they all exist as a unit, and the fact that I like all those people so much, and that they all such incredible actors, it just made it a nice group of people to work with every day.
Sometimes, if I’m in LA, I’ll see someone with a Fantastic Four shirt on and I don’t even want to open that box of worms and them I’m playing Reed Richards, because it would just kind of be never ending. But now, if I see someone in a Fantastic Four shirt…now you’re a part of that catalogue, and we’ll see what happens with the movie, but the history of the Fantastic Four, we are now very much etched in that.
The Fantastic Four opens August 7, 2015.
