"He's stronger than any of us. But he's not stronger than all of us!" That's the rallying cry behind an intense and action-packed new trailer for Fantastic Four. All four of Marvel's first family have their powers on full display in the final trailer, which debuted this past weekend at Comic-Con. But it's Doom who makes the biggest impression, finally stepping out of the shadows to wreck havoc on the world. He wants to rule with an iron fist. And he may just get his wish!
Fantastic Four is 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 is the end of your world. And the beginning of mine." Doom warns, as he shows his true self. This final sneak peek before release offers quite a bit of new footage. It kicks off with a prologue that shows young Reed Richards trying to build a teleporter after abandoning his ideas for a flying car. He eventually grows up to be the world's smartest scientist, but an accident sends him and his friends on the adventure of a lifetime.
This all-new footage also works in setting up the longstanding relationship between Reed and Ben Grimm, who have been best friends since childhood. We also get to see more of Sue and Johnny's father, played by Reg E. Cathey. He is forced to watch as the military uses his family as weapons of war. But it will not stand! And before he becomes the Moleman in The Fantastic Four 2, Tim Blake Nelson shows he has a very bad side.
This final trailer comes after Fantastic Four went through reshoots. And it seems clear, from the first trailer to this, that director Josh Trank and 20th Century Fox have set out to build a franchise that will bring a timeless story, dense drama, and all the superhero thrills audiences expect at the box office these days. Will it work? See Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Toby Kebbell in this final trailer now!
