Fans finally got their first good look at 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four when the trailer debuted back in January. While it remains unclear when the next trailer will debut, the studio has released a new poster, featuring stars Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (The Human Torch), Kate Mara (The Invisible Girl) and Jamie Bell (The Thing), along with the tagline "Change is Coming." While we don't get to see Mr. Fantastic's unique stretching abilities on display, the poster does show The Human Torch's fiery hands and even shows some of The Invisible Girl fading away, along with the monstrous Thing. Perhaps the studio is saving Mr. Fantastic's powers for the next trailer, but we'll have to wait and see.
These four heroes are all seen gazing at the same mysterious portal that was shown briefly in the trailer. There is speculation that this may be a gateway to The Negative Zone, which was called simply the N-Zone in the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics which this movie is believed to be adapted from. In the Ultimate comics, the N-Zone is tied to how this foursome received their incredible powers, and it is also home to a villain known as Nihil. In the original Fantastic Four comics, the Negative Zone was home to villains such as Blastaar, Annihilus, Stygorr and Noktiis. None of these characters have been confirmed for the reboot at this time, but it's possible that they could emerge in The Fantastic Four 2 sequel that is already in development and set for a 2017 release.
Fantastic Four 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 we don't get to see them in this one-sheet, the supporting cast is rounded out by Toby Kebbell, Tim Blake Nelson and Reg E. Cathey. Take a look at the poster to prepare yourself for director Josh Trank's reboot, arriving in theaters August 7.
