Production is underway on the reboot of the Fantastic Four and actor Michael B. Jordan, who plays The Human Torch, had some choice comments to make on director Josh Trank's vision for the superhero team.
Speaking with MTV News, Jordan said that the script is "evolving" and that focusing on the task at hand is important to him. "Yeah, we have been pretty much in our own world, that's really the only way we could get a project like this done," Jordan said. "It is so massive, so many moving parts, so many moving pieces, things are changing every day."
Jordan spoke highly of Trank, who he worked with on Chronicle, and his vision for the film.
"Josh [Trank]'s vision is very clear and he knows exactly what he wants, and he gives us room to adapt and to play," Jordan said. "It's not your typical superhero film, you know, we aren't looking at this as like, being superheroes. We're more or less a bunch of kids that had an accident and we have disabilities now that we have to cope with, and try to find a life afterwards, try to be as normal as we can."
Jordan added that he believes the characters in Fantastic Four have been grounded enough so that audiences will be able to relate with them.
"It's superheroes! You know, not just superheroes. It's fiction. You've got to ground it as much as you can to make [audience members] feel relatable to these characters, no matter what age they are or what time of their life."
Fantastic Four is due out in theaters June 19, 2015 and will be making an appearance at San Diego's Comic-Con.
