Grumblings have been heard throughout Hollywood about a Fantastic Four reboot for months with pieces and tid-bits of information becoming right and wrong all along the way. With a director attached in July, Fox has officially announced a release date and they sure have picked an interesting date. Take the jump for the info.

March 6, 2015 Marvel’s First Family is headed back to silver screen. The yet named Fantastic Four reboot is helmed by the director from Chronicle Josh Trank and penned by Jeremy Slatter. Slatter has said that he will be giving a Fantastic Four movie that the “fans deserve.”

So, so far in 2015 we are set to have Avengers 2, Star Wars VII, Justice League, and now Fantastic Four in theaters. Avengers 2 is set for May 1 and we can place our money on Star Wars and Justice League hitting during that summer. While a March 6 release might seem like Fox doesn’t have faith in Fantastic to hit big during the summer, with giant franchises like that coming to theaters this could be a smart move releasing early. Also with Days of Future Past coming to screen summer of 2014 Fox obviously wouldn’t want to compete with themselves by releasing a year earlier.

And that is all we know as of now, so…let the casting/story rumor mongering begin!

    Tom Cruise as Reed Richards.
    Zach Galifianakis as the Thing.
    Chris Evans as the fiery underwear model with a shield.
    Jessica Alba retains her role as Sue, based on sheer acting ability.
    Nic Cage as Doctor Doom.

    This can’t miss!

    I really think the two first films had potential. Really they were a couple of years ahead of them self.
    The more silly silver age is back – but it wasnt then.

    If they make a film for “the fans”, please dont make an origin story. Tell the origin in a intro montage and be on with a great story.

    My thoughts anyway.

    Josh Hutcherson as Johnny Storm.

    AJ Michalka as Sue Storm

    Nicholas Hoult as Mr. Fantastic. Played Beast in X-Men First Class. (now blue and furry)
    I wish David Tennant was a bit younger.

    Michael Pitt for Ben Grimm the Thing.

    I remember Rachel McAdams name was mentioned during the last FF casting go round, but sadly Alba got the nod instead of McAdams.

    Dr. Doom (from Chronicle) Alex Russell

      The actors you named belong on some CW teen soap opera, not in a superhero film.

      And David Tennant being too old, you are aware Mr. Fantastic has grey sideburns right?

      I liked Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards anyway.

    Have to agree with Arbor Day. Ioan was fine as Reed. Caste age appropriate and I’ll be there. Enough with the teenagers.
