‘Fantastic Four’ Reveals Four More New Images, But Some…Thing Is Missing
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.
Total Film revealed the new photos above, which feature Kate Mara’s Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Miles Teller’s Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic and Michael B. Jordan’s Johnny Storm/Human Torch in costume as their respective characters. You may notice a couple of, uh, things right off the bat: One, there’s no photo of Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Two, the signature Fantastic Four logo isn’t on their uniforms. They do kind of look like a military skydiving team, though.
Trank’s new film will also feature Toby Kebbell as Victor Domashev, an anti-social computer programmer who becomes the villainous Doctor Doom, and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder—Elder becomes Mole Man in the comics, though it’s been reported that we won’t see Elder’s alter ego in the first film.
Here’s the official synopsis:
THE FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
Fantastic Four hits theaters on August 7.
