Is This What the ‘Fantastic Four’ Costumes Look Like?

20th Century Fox is set to debut the first trailer for The Fantastic Four reboot in theaters on February 13, attached to prints of Kingsman: The Secret Service, but it isn’t known if the studio will release the trailer online before then. While we wait for this first footage to debut, many are hoping that the studio will also release the first photos of the cast, since we haven’t seen any official images from the reboot thus far. Today, Nerdist’s sources offered new details about the costumes, which they gave to their own artists who come up with unofficial renderings of what the costumes may look like. These images are not of official artwork from 20th Century Fox, but these artistic renderings are all we have to go on until the first trailer is released. Here’s what Nerdist’s Jessica Chobot had to say about Miles Teller‘s Mr. Fantastic suit.

“His suit has springs built into the fabric, to make sure that when his arms and legs stretch out uncontrollably, his limbs will snap back into place without anyone noticing. This version of The Fantastic Four is already more practical and grounded than anything we’ve seen in the past. Boy genius Reed Richards has designed these suits not for crime-fighting, but so their team can live their normal lives without their powers being revealed. These are like Act II suits, the look the team will sport for a majority of the movie, before getting into their final, more classical superhero costumes.”

She also describes Michael B. Jordan‘s Johnny Storm costume, which has been “ventilated.”

“To make sure he doesn’t explode the gas station when he stops to fill up, Reed has designed a ventilated suit for Johnny, to allow him to blow off some steam. Word has it that the hot-blooded hero actually winds up with his own TV show about his superpower in the film, so it seems this costume isn’t the most effective at hiding his abilities. Our source only got a quick glimpse at this one, so it’s probably the least accurate, but there are vents.”

Here’s what Jessica Chobot had to say about Jamie Bell‘s Ben Grimm costume, although their source did not get a sneak peek at Kate Mara‘s Sue Storm costume.

“Ben Grimm is played by skinny boy Jamie Bell, so you can expect him to look a lot slimmer than human tank Michael Chiklis did in the last Fantastic Four movie, and more angular than that faked leaked photo from a few months back. That said, he’s no less durable. Rumor is that this version of The Thing is pretty much indestructible, a quality the U.S. government would really like to replicate in their soldiers.”

Take a look at the artistic renditions of The Fantastic Four reboot costumes below. Hopefully we’ll get to see an official photo of the cast in costume before the first trailer debuts, so stay tuned for that. What do you think of Mr. Fantastic’s spring-loaded costume and Human Torch’s ventilated suit? Are you more or less excited to see how these will look on the big screen now?

‘Captain America 3′: Is Daniel Bruhl Playing Baron Zemo?

Jan 26, 2015 by Brian Gallagher has put out a new casting call for Marvel’s highly-anticipated Phase Three sequel Captain America: Civil War, which not only reveals that production will begin this April in Atlanta, Georgia, but seemingly confirms the villainous identity of Daniel Brühl’s character, after he signed on to star in November. While it has always been suspected that Daniel Brühl is playing the villain, this casting call claims to reveal that the actor is playing Baron Zemo, a nefarious Hydra villain from the Civil War comics. In addition, the casting notice also has the first synopsis for Captain America: Civil War, which reads as follows.

“In Captain America: Civil War, billionaire Tony Stark is pitted against Captain America aka Steve Rogers in an ethical face-off over the U.S government’s Superhuman Registration Act, which requires all super powered individuals to register their powers and report to S.H.I.E.L.D.”

What’s interesting is that, at the end of last year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. organization was disbanded, so its possible that either Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man or the TV series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may feature the agency being rebuilt in some manner, before Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in May 2016. Chris Evans will return as Captain America, alongside Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Frank Grillo as Crossbones and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. The casting call also seemingly confirms that Scarlett Johansson and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles as Black Widow and The Winter Soldier, respectively.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are returning to the helm for Captain America: Civil War, working from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Production will take place from April 4, 2015 to August 8, 2015. What do you think about the inclusion of Baron Zemo in this story?

Captain America: Civil War comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Frank Grillo, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Brühl. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo.

‘Better Call Saul’ Behind-the-Scenes Preview

Jan 26, 2015 by B. Alan Orange

AMC has released a new behind-the-scenes look at Better Call Saul, which kicks off with Bob Odenkirk describing how this Breaking Bad spinoff came to be. Creator Vince Gilligan first approached the star while they were working together on the set of Breaking Bad, where Bob Odenkirk promised that if Gilligan wrote it, he would definitely do it. Now, just a few years later, the show is already getting plenty of critical praise, with some even calling it better than its predecessor as the prequel prepares for its launch this February.

Better Call Saul is set in 2002, six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we first see him him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is Mike Erhmantraut. This spinoff will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “criminal lawyer.”

Starring Bob Odenkirk in the title role, the series will also feature Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando. Vince Gilligan directed the first episode of the series, which will premiere on February 9, 2015 on AMC. Watch as the creator delves deeper into the story and motivation behind this thrilling new drama, along with various members of his cast:

New Clip from The Flash Debuts With a Potential Heroic Tease

New Clip from The Flash Debuts With a Potential Heroic Tease

Ahead of tomorrow night’s episode of “The Flash,” The CW has released a clip which features Andrew Mientus as Hartley Rathaway, AKA Pied Piper. An interesting thing to note about the clip, however, is Pied Piper’s use of sound wave-based attacks, powers which another character also has in the DC canon, Vibe, the alter ego of Cisco Ramon. Could this be setting the groundwork for Cisco to suit up in a future episode of “The Flash?” 

Titled “The Sound and the Fury,” the episode of “The Flash” is officially described as follows:

“Dr. Wells’ former protégée, Hartley Rathaway (guest star Andrew Mientus), returns to seek revenge on his mentor after being affected by the particle accelerator explosion. Now able to manipulate sound waves, the brilliant Rathaway is a dangerous threat to both Wells and The Flash. Meanwhile, Iris is thrilled when she’s hired by the Central City Picture News as their newest cub reporter. Unfortunately, her editor (guest star Tom Butler) pairs her with a veteran reporter, Mason Bridge (guest star Roger Howarth), who wants nothing to do with her. Cisco recalls his first day on the job at S.T.A.R. Labs when he met Hartley and Caitlin. Joe asks Eddie for a favor but asks him to keep it a secret from Barry.”

Directed by John Showalter and written by Alison Schapker & Brooke Eikmier, “The Sound and the Fury” is set to air on January 27. “The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 P.M. EST.
