Ready or Not, the Fantastic Four Teaser Trailer Has Landed

I guess 20th Century Fox caved to all the Internet chatter that the lack of marketing means this movie is going to suck. Well, now we have our first look at Fantastic Four, and the jury is definitely still out.

Opening with a voiceover that talks about mankind and discovery, Fantastic Four immediately looks like Interstellar, and that’s before the shot of a car driving on a dirt road surrounded by corn fields. Honestly, the one thing Interstellar was severely lacking was strong characters. These four heroes have decades of development to mine from, so if this movie is going to be Interstellar with classic superheroes, I’m not entirely turned off by that.

But boy does this movie look like its taking itself oh so seriously. To be honest, Marvel’s first family are pretty goofy superheroes. They would fit perfectly with the tone of The Flash TV series on the CW, but this looks like Man of Steel. Granted, with Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan in there, it can’t be all drama.

Notably missing from the trailer is Toby Kebbell’s Dr. Doom. This version of the characters turns the tyrant into a hacker. So we’ll see how that goes.

The trailer does have a very cool sci-fi vibe to it though. Fantastic Four could work as a retro science fiction extravaganza. Again, we’ll see.

Fantastic Four hits theaters August 7. Check out the trailer below!
