‘Fantastic Four’ TV Spot Gives the Super Group Some Kanye West ‘Power’
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.
“You ready to have your minds blown?” asks Michael B. Jordan’s Johnny Storm, just as he flames on. There’s more momentum to the spot, which successfully uses the West track as a rhythmic outline. There are shots of chaos on the street and more action scenes in this spot, as well as a good mix of our heroes before and after their fantastic transformation. We also get another peek at Toby Kebbell’s Doctor Doom, but aside from one shot in an earlier trailer, we haven’t really seen him pre-transformation.
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.
