It’s really a family there and to be able to go back and do something that I really love and they’re very similar in some ways, they both launched in the ’60s at the same time they’re both about optimism and looking to the stars and technology can solve anything and they’re also about family — the family you have, the family you make so they’re aligned in a lot of ways and speak to my heart and right, so I’m excited to be working on ‘Fantastic Four’.”
