One little bit of ad copy can have a huge effect on a fanbase. For years, the precise nature of the stretching powers enjoyed (or endured) by Reed Richards has always been one of those things that Marvel Comics were able to explain away with a little jargon-laced pseudo-science. It didn’t really matter precisely how he stretched, for the most part, but it was fun to talk about.
Today, people had less fun talking about the details of the new Fantastic Four movie thanks to a sentence on the film’s official website. That line suggested that Mr. Fantastic’s powers are quite different in the film. But writer/producer Simon Kinberg has spoken up to say that things really aren’t changed, and to insist on one thing: “Reed Richards stretches in this movie.”

This summer’s other big superhero team takes the spotlight in a new Fantastic Four trailer. Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell star as Reed Richards, Johnny Storm, Sue Storm, and Ben Grimm respectively, who become Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and the Thing after a disastrous trip to another dimension.
But the biggest reveal in the new Fantastic Four trailer isn’t a superhero but a supervillain. This serves up our first look at Toby Kebbell‘s Victor Domashev a.k.a. Doctor Doom — both in and out of the mask. And there’s much more of the team in action, including new shots of the Thing. Check out the new Fantastic Four trailer after the jump.
Josh Trank‘s new Fantastic Four film opens in August, but even though it is an “end of summer” movie from Fox, the studio is slowly pushing new promos out now as the season begins. A set of Fantastic Four featureless offers brief interviews with Trank and writer/producer Simon Kinberg, and they talk about each of the cast members hired to play the four major roles. “Because we wanted to be grounded and dramatic,” says Kinberg,” we went for the best dramatic actors.” Check out all four short videos below.

“Be ready for what’s coming.” “What is coming?” ” The answers.” That dialogue ends a new international Fantastic Four trailer that is now online. It’s not lying. Answers are coming for questions about the mysterious Josh Trank superhero film.
Unfortunately, this trailer doesn’t have many of them. There is new footage in there, even some new power stuff. Overall, it’s probably a better constructed and more interesting trailer than the first teaser. But “answers?” Not just yet.

The new Fantastic Four poster gave us our best look at the team yet. Johnny’s on fire, Sue is disappearing, and the big bad rocks of The Thing were on full display. However, we only saw them from behind. Common sense (and the trailer) tell us what Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara are going to look like from the front. Jamie Bell as The Thing, however, is a bit more uncertain. Well, a Fantastic Four fan found an alternate poster outdoors and put the photo on Instagram. It’s since gone viral as it finally gives us an official look at The Thing.
Below, check out the first The Thing Fantastic Four image and see how the latest Fantastic Four poster borrowed from one of the biggest video game franchises in the world, Halo. Read More »
