Yesterday saw, really, the first official of anything for Fox’s upcoming rebooted superhero franchise The Fantastic Four. We got just a few looks on set, but the real stuff came from the Collider interview where director Josh Trank and writer/producer Simon Kinberg gave us some juicy details on their movie. How is that followed up? With the release of the first trailer, check out the first official trailer for The Fantastic Four below.
The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
Yeah, it’s a pretty solid teaser. With all the stuff that’s been surrounding the project over the last few months, we had no idea what we were going to get. But Josh Trank was able to deliver for sure. From the trailer I can see that he brought a very dark, gritty, and grounded feel to the world of the FF. It very much felt like Chronicle, that vibe. The only thing I’m worried about as of now are the suits… They look nothing like the FF suits, at all. Maybe they will change by the end of the movie when they finally become the Fantastic Four, but from what I could see, I’m not to happy with the way the suits look, especially Dr. Reed & Johnny Storm’s.
Here’s the first official teaser poster as well, which I personally love. The tagline of ‘change is coming’ is right on point. Letting us know that this is a different franchise now, that it’s now in the right hands and it’s for the better.
