Up until the first teaser trailer was released last month, we weren’t quite sure what to expect from Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The director previously revealed that his new film was inspired in part by the works of David Cronenberg, which is certainly intriguing. Aside from that first peek, we’ve been mostly in the dark about the reboot, which hits theaters in just six months. Today brings a quartet of new images from the film featuring the four main heroes, and oh, we see what they did there.

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!
“From the studio that brought you ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’!” No, not Marvel; Fox.
The ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot is scheduled to hit theaters in seven months, yet we’ve known so little about Josh Trank’s film, and we’ve seen even less (like, zero) from the project.

ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, ‘Fantastic Four’ finally plans to release a trailer, Tom Hardy ditches ‘Suicide Squad,’ and ‘Avengers 2’ reveals an action-packed new trailer.
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.
And the leaks keep coming from the now infamous, massive Sony hack. Over the last week we’ve learned a lot about the studio’s plans as other outlets have sifted through countless e-mails. The latest batch of information regards not just Sony’s upcoming plans, but the alleged plans of their rival studios, including Fox and Warner Bros.: The director for ‘Aquaman’ has reportedly already been chosen, Fox is planning a crossover between ‘X-Men’ and ‘Fantastic Four,’ and we have more info on the studio’s hopes for ‘Spider-Man.’
