In an age where audiences are inundated with superhero movies and superhero movie news, Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot has distinguished itself from the pack by being the movie that no one knows anything about. Aside from that vague, Interstellar-inspired teaser trailer, most of what we know about this film comes from hearsay and gossip. Depending on who you talk to, the film is either coming along fine or it’s an incomprehensible disaster. Could the brand new poster for the film give us anything new to chew on?

A couple of weeks ago, Fox released four new photos from Fantastic Four (get it? Four?), showing off each member of the heroic team. It was only recently that we got our first official look at Josh Trank’s reboot, which promises to be something of a dark sci-fi superhero film, with a new take on some familiar aspects. Today brings four more new photos from Fantastic Four with a couple of things notably missing.

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.

The last Rocky movie, 2006’s Rocky Balboa, turned out about as well as humanly possible for a story about a former heavyweight champ getting back into the ring at the age of 60. That Rocky Balboa was watchable at all was a credit to Sylvester Stallone’s skills as a director, writer, and star, and to the enduring appeal of the Rocky character. It was a triumph of strong execution over a weak premise.

First and foremost, the Fantastic Four are a family. When they're not off saving the world from threats both cosmic and human, they're living together in the same building as a slightly dysfunctional but loving unit. However, director Josh Trank's upcoming reboot is looking to shake up the FF formula in some fascinating new ways, and the casting of Reg E. Cathey as the father of Johnny and Sue Storm is an interesting piece of the puzzle.

UPDATE: For what it's worth, we spoke to some high-level studio sources who flatly denied the below report and stated it's "not at all" true. Filming is still scheduled to begin on April 21 and Trank himself is on set right now.
The 'Fantastic Four' movie has not been without its hiccups, but few superhero movies are. We didn't think much of the troubles and when the cast was finally announced - Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell - we assumed it would be a fairly smooth ride to the start of production this summer. But, according to a shocking new report, Fox is looking to reboot it's reboot: they reportedly have fired director Josh Trank, thrown out the existing script and are looking to recast the movie.

Jordan of 'Fruitvale Station' has long been linked to the role of Johnny Storm/Human Torch (a role previously portrayed onscreen by Chris Evans), but now it looks like the other members of his team have been found!
