The first trailer for the Marvel comic reboot movie The Fantastic Four has been released. Directed by Josh Trank, the movie stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Richards, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm.
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.
While this reboot sees the Fantastic Four saving Earth from the evil machinations of Victor ‘Doom’, the character’s origins are removed from the original comics. This is generating a lot of disapproval from fans of the comics so I am interested to see how this negative feedback will affect it’s performance when it hits the big screen in August.
The director and cast are young and I see this movie as 20th Century Fox’s way of cashing in on the superhero trend but I think, like the Fantastic Four themselves, they will fight against overwhelming odds to produce an entertaining film which I am looking forward to seeing.
