While the first trailer for Fantastic Four left us a little puzzled, the recently released second trailer definitely made a bigger impression. We already knew Josh Trank’s take on the classic super-team was going to be a bit darker than the previous films, but the latest trailer reassured us that the reboot also has a sense of humor. But what else can we learn from the latest preview? Join us as we break down the new Fantastic Four trailer to see what clues it has to offer.

The new Fantastic Four trailer is here and after months of rumors and presumptions and, quite frankly, downright weird buzz, we are finally getting a clear look at what Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot really looks like. Unlike the previous trailer, which liberally quoted the advertising for Interstellar with its questions and about science and its shots of corn fields, this preview is a bit more traditional and a bit more action packed. Oh, we finally get to see The Thing in action.
Hey look! It’s the idol of millions, the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing! A new trio of images from Empire revealed the new version of Yancy Street’s favorite son from director Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.
Our first legitimate look at the Fantastic Four reboot didn’t really help to clarify much about Josh Trank’s upcoming film, nor did it offer much in the way of hero shots to give us a taste of the characters once they’ve been fully transformed. This new international trailer is a bit better and continues to show off Trank’s darker approach to the material, plus it includes a shot of Sue Storm flying. Did you know Sue Storm could fly?
The Fantastic Four marketing campaign so far has been a little unusual. The movie doesn't look that bad, but it almost seems like Fox is scared of it. So far, they skipped Comic-Con, waited until February to release a teaser trailer and yesterday's poster was just a rehash of a previously released publicity still. So, we guess it shouldn't be at all surprising that our first look at The Thing in full on “clobberin time” mode is from someone's Instagram page.
From Wally West and Linda Park, to Harley Quinn and Mistah J, we're asking you to vote on comics' most famous couples so we can determine the best (and worst) romantic partnerships that comics have to offer. If you think the couple is star-crossed and meant to be, vote 'True Love.' If you think they've got unstable chemistry and can only end badly, vote 'Bad Romance.'
In today's polls, a classic theme; beauty and the beast. Monsters and the people who love them are a recurring motif in fiction, and the tradition has proved especially popular in comics, whether it's Bigby and Snow, Bruce and Betty, or Swamp Thing and Abby. If a monstrous outcast can find love, is that the truest love of all? Or are some people too terrible to love?

Over three days we'll present you with a selection of the most celebrated couples in comics. All you have to do is say if their love is built to last or doomed to fail.

If you think that the couple aren't really right together and maybe ought to reconsider everything their relationship is built on, vote 'Bad Romance'. The couple with the highest 'True Love' score will be have bragging rights as the best couple, and isn't that what Valentine's Day is really all about?
20th Century Fox's movie reboot of the Fantastic Four doesn't seem to have generated much buzz among comic fans, perhaps because all we hear about the movie is the ways in which it diverges from the comics created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The cast is young; the space mission origin story has apparently changed; and Doctor Doom is rumored to be an angry blogger named Domashev rather than a foreign despot. We seem to know a lot about what the movie won't be; now it's time for Fox to tell us what the movie will be.
20th Century Fox has announced a couple of updates to its roster of Marvel movies for the next couple of years, formally slotting the Channing Tatum-led Gambit movie into an October 7th release date, and moving Fantastic Four 2 forward a month, from July 14th 2017 to June 2nd 2017. We've updated our Supermovies infographic with the new dates, so you can enjoy a complete and up-to-date view of the next few years, and visualize all of your money disappearing.
The Gambit movie is scheduled for much sooner than most observers expected -- late next year -- and brings the number of Fox X-Men movies scheduled for next year up to three, with Deadpool in February and X-Men: Apocalypse in May. This makes Fox the first of the four studios in the current supermovies race to release three major shared-universe superhero movies in a single year; Marvel Studios will repeat the feat in 2017 and 2018.
We haven't known much at all about Fox's 'Fantastic Four' reboot: the studio opted not to bring the film to Comic-Con this year, so we've really only been able to speculate based on the casting, which has skewed young and a little subversive. But Toby Kebbell, who plays villain Dr. Doom in the upcoming film, has just revealed some details about his role in the film, revealing a pretty major change from the character fans are familiar with.
