COMIC REEL: “Fantastic Four” Writer Clarifies Reed’s Powers; New “Age Of Ultron” Stills Include Vision

FANTASTIC FOUR

In an interview with HitFix, “Fantastic Four” writer/producer Simon Kinberg spoke about the recent reveal that Reed Richards doesn’t actually stretch his body in the new movie — he actually warps the space around him.

“I think it was confusing,” said Kinberg of the character’s official bio. “I was a little confused by it myself. The intent was to try to explain the power with some sort of scientific explanation, but as you pointed out, most of his powers defy what we know about physics. The upshot of it is that he stretches in his movie. That is his power. That’s the simplest explanation… There’s also the shot where his hand’s in a restraint, and the arm stretches in to get out of the restraint. And there will be more as more materials come out, certainly. I would say that it is among the harder visual effects to render in a way that feels real and visceral and physical, like we want the powers to feel. But, yeah. He stretches. That’s what he does… I’m not sure what the derivation of it was. There are so many materials on movies like this, and not all of it comes from the same source.”

DAREDEVIL

Netflix has released a featurette focusing on Elden Henson’s character, Foggy Nelson.

IGN also spoke with Charlie Cox about who he hopes to see in “Daredevil” season 2.

“I love Stilt-Man. I love Owlsley,” said Cox. “I think in our show we’re more likely to see the likes of Bullseye, The Punisher and Elektra… I don’t know if any of those characters will appear, and also I don’t know what’s going to happen with Wilson Fisk. He’s certainly not out of the picture. Hopefully he’ll come back.”
