This is probably the best Fantastic Four preview we’ve gotten yet, thanks to the use of Kanye West’s “Power,” thus proving that adding Kanye West to things automatically makes them better. The “Power” theme is obvious in the new spot, which showcases plenty of new footage in its short, 30-second runtime.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors about a possible crossover between Fox’s new Fantastic Four and the well-established X-Men franchises. Producer and writer Simon Kinberg himself has hinted at the possibility, and given his lengthy contract with Fox, it seems plausible. A new report makes that possibility seem more like a reality, and rumor has it the crossover may hit the big screen as soon as 2018.

“Shall I alert the fire department?” The latest TV spot for Fantastic Four has arrived, and it’s brought along a sense of humor, finally. So far, the trailers we’ve seen for Josh Trank’s reboot have been a bit gloomy and severe, with only tiny hints of a lighter tone in the chemistry between the four leading stars. To be fair, Ben Grimm still looks a bit, well, grim.

When it was first announced that director Josh Trank had cast Michael B. Jordan in the role of the traditionally-white Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four, there was a bit of (sadly predictable) fan backlash. It was the same sort of ignorant, unreasonable outcry we’ve endured anytime someone suggests we have a Spider-Man who isn’t white (even though we have one in the comics). Jordan has mostly kept quiet about the senseless anger regarding his casting, but the actor has finally delivered a thoughtful response.

A great movie villain can elevate the hero and his journey. A great villain is the key to conflict, and conflict fuels an effective story, and an effective story is what allows a movie to linger on long after a movie has finished screening. This is all especially true in the realm of the superhero movie, where characters who can do impossible things need a bad guy who can realistically threaten them. All of the truly great superhero movies have a villain who balances the heroes, a sinister force who gives them something to fight. This list is not about those guys. It’s about the other guys. The ones that suck.
