Josh Trank Defends Himself Against Latest Fantastic Four Rumor


Earlier today, Superhero News reported that 20th Century Fox had brought in Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn to complete the April re-shoots for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot.

This rumor has been debunked by none other than Josh Trank himself. Trank went on Twitter and contacted various writers that reported on the rumor to set things straight before this rumor got any more out of hand.

He later added, "Next time you read an article, whether it's Hollywood Reporter or SuperheroNews, if they aren't naming sources: it's probably bullsh*t." And furthermore: "Where there's bullsh*t there's flies."

He also tweeted a message to narrow minded people that are still having a hard time accepting Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. 

A contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.


Fantastic Four will land in theaters August 7, 2015.
