Reed Richards (Miles Teller) introduces Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) to his fellow inter-dimensional travelers Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Victor Domashev (Toby Kebbell) in the first clip for Fantastic Four. The scene takes place as they all make a history-breaking journey to an alternate universe, where they will all get their own unique super powers. We haven't seen much of Toby Kebbell's Victor Domashev before he turns into the villainous Doom, but he appears to be just a normal guy getting ready to travel into another world in this scene. And the clip begs the question, where is Sue Storm?
20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four reboot is said to be based on the "Ultimate Fantastic Four" comics, offering a a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team. The story 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.
This clip may represent the last time these characters are "normal," before Reed Richards turns into Mr. Fantastic, Johnny Storm becomes The Human Torch, Ben Grimm transforms into The Thing and Kate Mara's Invisible Woman turns into The Invisible Woman. The supporting cast includes Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder and Reg E. Cathey as Franklin Storm, the father of both Sue and Johnny Storm. We'll have to wait and see if Harvey Elder turns into The Mole Man, like he does in the comics.
