Fantastic Four TV Spot Offers New Footage

“Prepare” for the August 7 release with a new Fantastic Four TV Spot!

20th Century Fox has released a new Fantastic Four TV spot that, while comprised largely of footage we’ve seen, has a few new glimpses from the August 7 release. Check it out in the player below!

An origin story said to be inspired largely by the “Ultimate Fantastic Four” comics (the first arc of which was written by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar with Joe Kubert illustrating), Fantastic Four offers a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team. The story 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.

“Marvel’s First Family” will include Whiplash‘s Miles Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), “House of Cards” star Kate Mara as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), Fruitvale Station and Chronicle‘s Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and The Adventures of Tintin‘s Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing). Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ Toby Kebbell will also star as Doctor Doom alongside Reg E. Cathey (“The Wire”) as as Dr. Franklin Storm and Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man.

Fantastic Four, directed by Chronicle helmer Josh Trank, features a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is also a producer on the film.

20th Century Fox will be taking the Hall H stage at Comic-Con International in San Diego next Saturday, July 11 and we’ll be there! Check back for lots of coverage, including news about Fantastic Four!
