For a massive superhero reboot, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four had one of the quietest shoots in recent memory. Sure a few photos of the stars leaked here and there, and maybe even a glimpse of the Thing, but for the most part nothing has been spoiled by the press or paparazzi during filming. Which, these days, is a rarity.
So it’s exciting when one of the film’s stars, Kate Mara (who plays the Invisible Woman), jumps on Twitter not only to announce the film is finished, but post a photo of herself with her three co-stars: Mr. Fantastic played by Miles Teller, the Human Torch played by Michael B. Jordan and The Thing played by Jamie Bell.
They’re all in street clothes unfortunately, so no reveal of the Fantastic Four costumes just yet, but it’s a great shot none the less. Check out the Fantastic Four cast photo below. Read More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in theaters very soon, but Paramount still wanted to prove to Comic-Con that after years and years of controversy, they’ve made a winner. According to co-creator Kevin Eastman, the movie is “absolutely fantastic” and to prove it the producers (Andrew Form and Brad Fuller), director (Jonathan Liebsman) and stars (Megan Fox and Will Arnett) showed up to present not one, but two extended clips from the film.

In fact, it looks a lot more like it could be a cover for an issue of the magazine from which the film drew stories, artists, and inspiration.
In truth, the current owners of Heavy Metal are looking to make a bit of a scene at Comic Con this year. This poster by Eng and Mondo is billed as the teaser for a new Heavy Metal film. And while we don’t have any details on the movie, we’ve got the Heavy Metal teaser poster below. Read More »
