The 1st Trailer For Fox’s Fantastic Four’ Isn’t FANT4STIC, But It Is Intriguing


Of all the Blockbusters this year, the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot has long been deemed a disaster, from other geeky blog sites not liking the casting choices, to an apparent temper-tantrum by director Josh Trank, and finally a complete lack of photos or footage…

Until today.

Why in the world is Fox's calling it 'FANT4ASTIC?' Did they learn nothing from 'TAK3N?'

Our best look at The Thing.

Now we have a teaser-trailer and a poster; our first look at the film what-so-ever. And, though we have yet to see anything fantastic, the trailer’s images and tone are very interesting; very akin to the tone of Fox’s recent X-Men adventures ‘First Class’ and ‘Days of Future Past.’

Maybe a little creepier.Ok, Definitely creepier!

It may not be ‘The Dark Knight,’ but this version of ‘Fantastic Four’ looks far darker than the overally-kid-friendly originals directed by Tim Story.

FANT4STIC Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. FantasticI’m now cautiously optimistic the film may be good; I do like the almost terrifying images of the crew’s transformation including Miles Teller painfully stretching for the first time as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic to The Thing (Jamie Bell) breaking out of a mass of rocks.

This apparent similarity in tone between Fox’s ‘Fantastic Four’ and their ‘X-Men’ franchise is no mistake, Fox plans on crossing their two Marvel properties into a mini-Fox Cinematic Universe. There’s also a sequel in the works already…

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Ok. So now the logo is a square? Because there are four sides? To distance new franchise from old?

‘The Fantastic Four’ (or ‘The FANT4STIC’) gets a much needed reboot on August 8th!

P.S. Let us not forget the original ‘Fantastic Four’s legacy: Chris Evans, who graduated from Johnny Storm/The Human Torch to Steve Rogers/Captain America.
