Marvel's First Family has finally returned.
After months and months of speculating, waiting for something — anything — official on the "Fantastic Four" front, we now have the first trailer for the Josh Trank superhero movie… and much like "Chronicle," this movie looks. very. intense.
Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell are the actors suiting up as Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch and the Thing, respectively, and we get pretty solid looks at each and every one of them in this first trailer. The Thing design remains somewhat murky, but there's a very cool transformation shot midway through the trailer, and a final shot that shows his rocky backside. (Not a sentence I was expecting to write today, if ever.)
All in all, it's a surprisingly powerful and moody look at the characters who most recently graced the silver screen in the not-so-good "Rise of the Silver Surfer." Despite controversy surrounding the project, the first "Fantastic Four" trailer suggests this movie could be very interesting after all. At the very least, it's a fantastic trailer.
"Fantastic Four" hits theaters on August 7.
