We’re slowly but surely making our way to the premiere of the reboot for the Fantastic Four franchise. Since almost its inception, it has been maligned with setbacks, squabbles, and conspiracy theories concerning both Fox and Marvel. And yet, the film is indeed heading to theaters to be put in front of viewers.
A full on second trailer has been released, and in it we see not only the team truly in action, with all their powers being shown for the first time but the first true appearance of key Fantastic Four villain, Dr. Doom!
It’s also interesting to note how the team is coming together. For this go around, they’re all part of the same project from the start, where in the last series of movies, Reed and Ben were eventually teamed up with Susan and Johnny. It’s the little things. The film is due out on August 8.
Here is the official synopsis and trailer for the film: “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 arrives in theaters August 7th.
