We’re just hours away from Fox’s panel at Comic-Con 2015, but we’ve already got some big news about the Fantastic Four reboot.

The new Fantastic Four reboot comes with a lot of built-in baggage — fans were so disappointed in the 2005 film and the subsequent sequel in 2007 (perhaps more so with the latter), that they’re naturally skeptical of another go-round with the super-powered quartet. Producer Simon Kinberg is aware of this and acknowledges it in a new interview, while remaining in director Josh Trank’s corner regardless of the rumors that continue to swirl about his behavior on set.

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.

“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.
