Kate Mara's Comments on FANTASTIC FOUR Clarified, Film Will Be Based on Comics

Kate Mara, who will play Invisible Woman in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four, recently discussed the upcoming film in an interview. It appeared from her comments that the movie would not be based on the comics, but that was not actually what she meant. Hit the jump for clarification.



Kate Mara, star of the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, was recently interviewed by Esquire Latin America. In a translation of the Spanish article, she was quoted as saying, "I’ve never been a fan of comics, I’ve never actually read one. I was going to for this movie but the director said it wasn’t necessary. Well, actually he told us that we shouldn’t do it because the plot won’t be based on any history of anything already published."

However, according to Entertainment Weekly, this was a mistranslation. EW contacted Mara's representative, and she actually meant to say the film was not based on one particular comic, but on the Fantastic Four's entire comic book history.
