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.
Arriving next week, Fantastic Four gives us a decidedly different Doom than we've ever seen before. And until now, we still haven't seen much of what this super villain can do. Toby Kebbell, who is following in Andy Serkis's footsteps as one of the go-to motion capture actors, embodies this iconic Marvel character as a stalking mass of glowing green metal. Here, we see his rise before the fall.
These two new Fantastic Four TV spots don't just give us a better look at Doom. We also get to see Marvel's first family discover their superpowers for the first time. The first spot shows Reed Richard (Miles Teller) and his team of scientists heading off on their fateful trip, where an accident exposes them to the dangerous of an alternate dimension. They return to earth transformed, and it's a trying time for these four individuals. Especially Reed, who feels responsible for what he has brought upon his friends.Read More
In two weeks, 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four hits theaters nationwide, giving fans a much different version of Marvel's First Family than we saw in the original 2005 superhero movie. Today we have a slew of new videos for the upcoming reboot, including four featurettes that delve into scientific aspects such as alternate dimensions, teleportation, wormholes and invisibility. If that wasn't enough, we also have two TV spots with brand new footage. And Doom finally speaks!
These previews introduce fans to an actual theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, who reveals that the Fantastic Four were his favorite superheroes growing up. He adds that some of these theories regarding alternate dimensions might not be as far-fetched as fans may believe, adding that "science and fantasy aren't too far away from each other." These featurettes also include new footage from Fantastic Four, featuring stars Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch), Kate Mara (The Invisible Woman) and Jamie Bell (The Thing).Read More
Cryptic remarks, indeed. When he mentions the word 'time', it could be taken in a number of many different directions. As he hints, these movie franchise both have ensemble casts that are some of the biggest in the superhero genre. It will be incredibly difficult to get everyone together, with all of their busy schedules sorted out, as some of the most sought after actors in Hollywood currently make up these two teams. Then, of course, when he utters the word 'time', he may be talking about the plot of the crossover itself. X-Men: Days of Future Past was, at its core, a time travel movie. And the events that played out greatly altered the X-Men movie series timeline. X-Men: Apocalypse will also have time travel elements, and the new Fantastic Four reboot deals with alternate plains of existence. So, his remarks could be viewed with a two-edged connotation.
With the altered timeline set up by X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer has been able to right some of the wrongs of the previous movies. He's even bringing back some fan favorite characters, recast with younger actors who will surely carry the franchise into the future. The earlier rumor suggests that Bryan Singer will direct The Fantastic Four 2, taking over for Josh Trank. He will establish the ideas that Mutants exist in that world, with a story that will directly lead into the X-Men/Fantastic Four Crossover Movie, which he'll also direct. Its been said that 20th Century fox doesn't want to lose the combination of director Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, who understand both franchises, and are the only ones who can properly build their own version of Marvel's Cinematic universe, incorporating both franchises.Read More
Marvel's First Family must come together to stop the maniacal Doom in a new TV spot for 20th Century Fox's superhero reboot Fantastic Four, arriving in theaters nationwide August 7. These new scenes highlight the "clobbering" power of The Thing (Jamie Bell), as he literally rips off the top of a massive military tank. We also see Dr. Franklin Storm (Reg E. Cathey) tells this super-powered quartet that they have to work as a team to stop the evil Doom (Toby Kebbell).
