Josh Trank will be directing the second Star Wars spinoff film that’s due in 2018, but first up is his take on Marvel’s Fantasic Four for Fox. It’s been kept mostly under wraps, but Trank and Simon Kinberg talked to Collider about it the other day.

According Drew McWeeney at Hitfix, it is indeed Serkis, who is “playing a pivotal role in the film, although he will not have a lot of screen time.”
And finally, here’s a fun compilation of reaction videos:

Man, do I hope that’s the case. The Jurassic World trailer was supposed to premiere during a football game on Thanksgiving day.
