Four photos from Fantastic Four have debuted over on the pages of Empire Magazine and each of our quartet of superheroes gets their own shot.
Given what we saw in that Fantastic Four teaser trailer that debuted last month, this flick is firmly on our radar.
Our takeaway from these new stills is that they have done a stellar job with casting as Kate Mara looks like she kills it as Sue Storm (Invisible Woman), Miles Teller has the right panache for Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan will surely heat things up as Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and Jamie Bell has that thing as Ben Grimm (The Thing).
What else has us more intrigued than we feel we should be for a reboot to a movie series that seems to have just given us an installment a few years ago (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer arrived in 2007), is that the Fox movie from the Marvel library is directed by Josh Trank (see his work and watch Chronicle online) and is from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past).
We’re told that this particular storyline is inspired by the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics, which gives a uniquely modern take on what is surprisingly Marvel’s oldest team of superheroes.
Look for Fantastic Four to become fantastic as the origins story lands August 7.
