Mark Millar Talks Upcoming FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot

Mark Millar recently sat down with SFX to discuss Kick-Ass 2. The writer was asked a few questions regarding the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. While not giving us to much info, Millar talks about what the new film "must get right". Millar reveals that he (like many others) is not to fond of 2005's Fantastic Four film, but a touching memory makes him "kinda" care about the movie. While this is not the full interview, you can catch the full interview in this month's SFX magazine. 
What does the new Fantastic Four movie have to get right?
“These first two movies were not very good but I’m quite sentimental towards them. I took my youngest daughter to see the first one, she was only five when it came out, and she thought it was the best film ever made. At the end, when Johnny Storm says, ‘Flame on!’ for the first time, she thanked me for taking her to see it. So even though it was a crap movie that memory makes me sort-of like it in a strange way. For the new one all they have to do is make it great. It sounds obvious and it is. Sam Raimi gave us a great Spider-Man. Christopher Nolan gave us a great Batman. So a brilliant director is probably the most important thing for a great Fantastic Four. Tim Story was seen as an odd choice for Fantastic Four but when you have a Josh Trank you know you are in safe hands.”
Will the upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four share a universe with the future X-Men films? 
“Without question I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies. I think the most exciting thing in superhero movies, until The Avengers came along, was when Nick Fury showed up in Iron Man. Even though it was a guy with an eye patch it was really cool – and I expect we will see more of that.”
The Fantastic Four is set to hit theatres March, 2015.
