We’re just a few weeks out from the release of Fantastic Four, one of our last blockbusters of the summer movie season, and our last superhero film of the year. Although general response to Josh Trank’s reboot has been tepid so far, there’s plenty of appeal in some of these TV spots and trailers, like the latest, which is made up of almost entirely new footage and gives us another look at Dr. Doom.

My favorite line in the new trailer for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, which was just released online after its debut last weekend at Comic-Con, is the one spoken by Reg. E. Cathey as Dr. Franklin Storm. “It is our duty as human beings,” he says, “to push forward into the unknown.”

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.

Josh Trank is having a rough time. Following rumors of issues on the set of Fantastic Four, the director didn't make an appearance at Star Wars Celebration — and that was after rumors had been circulating for a while about his potential exit from the franchise.
