‘Fantastic Four’ trailer: Will the superhero story rise or fall?.

“It is our duty as human beings to push forward into the unknown,” according to the latest Fantastic Four trailer, which premiered at San Diego Comic-Con, “but sometimes you’re looking to discover one thing, and you find something else.” Such is the case with the Fantastic Four, who will take on Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell) this summer, as soon as they harness their accidentally acquired superpowers.“Fantastic,” which is being released by 20th Century Fox and is based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name, stars Miles Teller as scientist Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Fantastic, Reed Richards was like any other normal kid, bragging about his teleportation device in class and causing massive blackouts in his neighborhood with botched science experiments.

The new trailer not only establishes that Reed Richards (Miles Teller) has always been a scientist more interested in discovery than safety (“Reed, you’re insane,” a young Ben Grimm [Jamie Bell] tells him after a teleportation experiment gone wrong. “Thanks,” he responds), but that the U.S. military has its own reasons for wanting to bankroll his experiments — and supporting what those experiments bring about. (It also appears to confirm what many fans have been discussing online lately: this new version of the Thing doesn’t wear any pants. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell all look convincing as Reed Richards, Sue Storm, and Ben Grimm, but perhaps the most exciting addition to the mix is Michael B. The new clip goes on to showcase the Fantastic Four’s actual ground-zero moment — a freak accident in an alternate universe that leaves Reed (Miles Teller), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Quite why this is a concern isn’t entirely clear, considering he’s been transformed into a pile of rocks, but there you go.) Written by Simon Kinberg and directed by Josh Trank, Fantastic Four stars Teller, Bell, Michael B.

Jordan’s Johnny Storm, aka Human Torch, who quips, “I’m gonna need a heat-resistant workshop … and a big-ass sunroof.” But the threat of Doctor Doom is looming—he promises, “This is the end of your world, and the beginning of mine.” The movie premieres Aug. 7. The film will feature a score by Philip Glass – the legendary composer’s first time working on a superhero film – along with Marco Beltrami. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. Fantastic and Kate Mara (“House of Cards”) as Sue Storm/the Invisible Woman. (Her superpower is self-explanatory.) The trailer also plays up the role of villain Dr. The movie is another indication of the short time span studios now leave between new incarnations of stories – it was only eight years ago that Jessica Alba and Evans starred in a “Fantastic Four” film.

Still, despite all of these details, the question remains: Can “Fantastic Four” triumph in a world already overrun by Avengers and X-Men, and soon to be joined by DC and Warner Bros.’s “Justice League” and “Suicide Squad”? One reporter wrote of the movie panel, “[‘Fantastic’] has been battling a wave of negative buzz for months … the film perhaps inevitably wound up feeling a bit overshadowed by other superhero offerings” like “Deadpool,” a character that’s hitting the screen for the first time, and “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which has familiar characters but a new villain. Another journalist wrote that the film “carries a whiff of been-there, done-that” at Comic-Con and one called it a “loser” of Comic-Con, writing, “After seeing that insane ‘Deadpool’ and ‘X-Men’ footage, who even remembered having seen ‘Fantastic Four’ stuff as well? They had a last chance to spark some fan interest in this new movie, and it just didn’t happen.” The film isn’t out, so who knows – it could get a rapturous response from critics and benefit from a quiet weekend.
