The teaser, released yesterday, showcases each of the four lead characters in this all-important reboot of the franchise, (Miles Teller – Reed Ricards/Mr Fantastic, Kate Mara – Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan – Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, Jamie Bell – Ben Grimm/The Thing). The two minute clip does an admirable job of introducing you to the World this team of heroes will inhabit, setting a much darker tone than our two previous cinematic outings with the group. This will be pleasing to many as a big criticism of FOX’s previous Fan4 films is that they seemed to be superhero-comedy movies packed full of one liners and cheesy moments, rather than being focused on the real essence of each of these interesting characters. Not to mention how appallingly they handled the Victor Von Doom character.
So yeah overall I was dead impressed with the quality of this teaser trailer. Let’s bear in mind this is the first thing we’ve seen from this franchise up to this point. That isn’t to say the movie’s gonna be great, this is just a trailer at the end of the day..but I sure do hope it’s a least a few times better than the others.
