Michael B. Jordan, about any promotional material for Fantastic Four:
Well, they just moved the release date to August 7. We had a great time going to Baton Rouge to film. Josh Trank [the director] is really happy with it. I’m really happy with it. I’m really excited for everyone to see a different take on the franchise. It’s a grounded superhero film. You really care and get to know the characters a lot. You get a feeling like you’re discovering the characters at the same time they’re discovering themselves. During the fittings when I put on the full outfit and looked at myself in the mirror, and I was like, ‘Oh shit. Game on!’ It was like, this is it! This is what it looks like. This is what it feels like. It felt good. You can talk about it and discuss it and what not it. But it’s not until you get on set and put on those clothes that you become that person. You kind of check out. Mike checked out. I was playing Johnny Storm. I was doing it. No more talking about it. You gotta be about it.”
Michael B. Jordan, in an interview with Wonderwall:
The costume part wasn’t that bad. I think we did a really good job at making it modern, new, fresh without going to the cheesy superhero outfits. We didn’t take the easy way out at all. So I didn’t mind it so much. I just want people to see it. It’s a reflection of the times we live in right now. It reflects the world that everyone lives in right now. When it did dawn on me, I was very proud to be that guy. I knew it was a huge responsibility and weight on my shoulders, but at the same time I looked forward to tackling that challenge and doing great work. I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing my whole career: putting the hard work in, doing my homework, and showing up and giving 100 percent.”
For those that don’t know, Fantastic Four will be released on the 7th of August 2015.
