If you thought the first trailer for Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot was suspiciously similar to the trailers for Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar,’ you weren’t alone! Although both films couldn’t seem more different on the outside, they both employed their fair share of identical movie marketing tropes ... and it took less than a day for someone to mash them up. Good job, internet!

Given how little we’ve heard about the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot, it’s appeared as though Fox may be a bit nervous or unsure about the film. We’re seven months away from the release, and we’ve yet to see a single promotional image or teaser, which is pretty unusual for a major blockbuster. There have been a lot of rumors swirling this week, and with the announcement that the film is heading back to do some reshoots, those rumors are swirling even more. But there’s some good news: you’ll be able to see the first teaser next month.

When you look at Marvel Studios’ ‘Ant-Man’ and Fox’s ‘Fantastic Four,’ you are looking at two superhero movies that couldn’t be more different in how they’re being shared and marketed. The former is an obscure, B-list superhero with a seemingly unmarketable name and yet we’ve already seen a trailer and have seen images from the set for the past six months. The latter is the latest take on one of the most important and famous superhero teams of all time and we haven’t heard one official peep or even seen a still. That’s why the reveal of the composer for ‘Ant-Man’ feels like just another piece of news in the Disney marketing machine while the composer announcement for ‘Fantastic Four’ is like a drop of water to a man dying of thirst in the desert.

Even after the release of the official plot synopsis for Fox’s ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot, we’re still pretty much in the dark about the film. We know the casting by heart now, and we’ve learned some eyebrow-raising details about the revamped origins of Doctor Doom, but we haven’t seen or heard very much about ‘Fantastic Four’ or how director Josh Trank is approaching the younger cast of characters and their abilities. A new interview with one of the film’s motion capture experts helps to shed some light on at least one character in the film: The Thing, aka Ben Grimm, portrayed in this new version by Jamie Bell.
