A lot of people were disappointed by last summer’s Fantastic Four. The reboot, directed by Josh Trank, was supposed to relaunch one of the most popular comic-book series in history, and erase the memory of two previous, unpopular Fantastic Four movies in the process. It had a great cast, including Miles Teller, Kate Mara, and Michael B. Jordan. It had Trank, coming off his acclaimed superhero film Chronicle. It should have been the start of something huge.
As skeptical as many fans rightfully have been about Josh Trank’s reboot of Fantastic Four, there’s something sort of appealing about the film’s aesthetic and tone from the various teasers and trailers. In keeping with 20th Century Fox’s recent X-Men films, Fantastic Four looks as though it walks the line between the fun, vibrant world of the MCU and the grittier, stylized approach of Zack Snyder’s DCU.
A new international trailer for Fantastic Four has arrived online, giving us another proper introduction to the team and another good look at the villainous Dr. Doom, who — you had to admit — looks much better than the version from the previous Fantastic Four movies.
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.
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.
We've known the lineup of the titular Fantastic Four from the upcoming movie for almost two months now, but people have been guessing for some time who would play the team's arch-nemesis, Victor von Doom.
Rumors that Dr. Doom could have been a woman have turned out to just be rumors. Variety reports that 20th Century Fox has cast Toby Kebbell, who has played roles in Prince of Persia, War Horse, Wrath of the Titans and Ridley Scott's The Counselor, will be the new movie version of the masked supervillain.
