COMIC REEL: New "Fantastic Four" Still Pushes Limits; "X-Men's" Till Wants Havok, Wolverine Scene


A new promotional image from "Fantastic Four" has been released featuring Sue Storm and Reed Richards in street clothes, experiencing a meeting of the minds. Considering the legendary romance these two have in the comics, it's kinda fitting that this looks like a still from an indie romcom.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios screentested six actors on Saturday for the role of Peter Parker. This means that the previous report stating that Asa Butterfield was basically a lock for the role was most likely false.

In addition to Butterfield and Tom Holland were four actors new to the Spider-Man race. Charlie Plummer (who appeared on "Boardwalk Empire"), Charlie Rowe (from Fox's canceled "Red Band Society"), Matthew Lintz (who can be seen next to Adam Sandler this summer in "Pixels"), and Judah Lewis (who plays a young Johnny Utah in the upcoming "Point Break" remake) all reportedly screentested for the role.

Well we survived the streets. Time to go dark now. Remember, only the tiniest glimpse has been exposed. Our surprises are intact.

With production on the 2016 "X-Men" sequel underway, Angel actor Ben Hardy has taken to Twitter to post a picture of himself undergoing the training he needs to do in order to perform the winged mutant's specific brand of aerial derring-do.

Hardy can be seen inside a vertical wind tunnel with stunt performer and skydiver Shane Habberstad, who will most likely be performing stunts for Angel in "Apocalypse."

In an interview with ComicBook.com Lucas Till talked briefly about his desire for his Alex Summers to share the screen with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.

"I hear these amazing stories, and I'm just like, 'Man, I know we'd get along,'" said Till. "And I think it would be cool from an X-Men perspective to see those two together, since they have a little bit of a history in the comics. To see them interact at least a little bit would be cool." Whether or not they will cross paths in "X-Men: Apocalypse" remains to be seen; Jackman has yet to be confirmed for the movie and Till concludes his answer by saying, "I'm pretty disappointed about [the lack of Havok and Wolverine scenes]."

He also lamented the fact that a still has been released of Alex Summers' parents -- and his dad is not a space pirate like in the comics. "[T]hat I'd like to see. I wonder if there's going to be somebody to take that to the next level," said Till. "I wonder if there's ever going to be a Gabriel Summers, if they're going to bring [third Summers brother] Vulcan into the mix. That'd be kind of neat, wouldn't it?"
