Kate Mara: Fantastic Four is a movie she still hasn't seen

Posted on

The critical and commercial reception to Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot wasn’t fantastic. But the disappointing returns aren’t getting one of the project’s stars down.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, and surrounded by two Marvel Cinematic Universe movie stars, Captain America‘s Sebastian Stan and Ant-Man‘s Michael Peña, Mara joked about Fantastic Four‘s low box office.

“Mine was the biggest success. I just want to put it out there,” Mara, who played Sue Storm in the film, joked. After Stan mentioned that he hasn’t seen the film yet during the interview, the 32-year-old actress said he wasn’t alone.

“…I haven’t seen the one that’s out there,” Mara continued, likely in reference to director Trank’s now-deleted tweet saying he had a version of the film he wanted to make that was different than what appeared on screen.

However, Mara doesn’t necessarily want to say goodbye to Sue Storm. Speaking to MTV News, Mara said she would “love to play Sue Storm in a movie that everybody loves. That would be great.”

Whether Mara does get the chance to reprise her role, she can next be seen in Ridley Scott’s The Martian, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to much initial acclaim and is set to hit theaters on Oct. 2.
