First images from The Fantastic Four set as details are finally revealed

We have the first official look at a costume design for 20th Century Fox's upcoming reboot of THE FANTASTIC FOUR. As many of us were still wondering if this movie was real or not, this might serve as proof before a trailer or poster arrive (soon please). The image below shows star Michael B. Jordan in the outfit he’ll be wearing as Johnny Storm. It’s not the blue jumpsuit that fans are familiar with, so hopefully they will be able to deal with this and other changes that are inevitably coming our way. It’s a new take on an old property that’s already been done before, I think change is not only important here, but necessary.

THE FANTASTIC FOUR will offer a "contemporary re-imagining" of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team. Collider got an exclusive interview with director Josh Trank and producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg where they opened up about the film, answered some important questions, and put a lot of rumors to rest. During the interview, Trank and Kinberg revealed few great bits of information about the project, there are no spoilers and no specific plot points - a refreshing change if you ask me.

Here are a the highlights:

  • Trank says they "consciously decided to not release anything official" until now.
  • In terms of story, Trank said, "This is a modern telling of how these four iconic characters came together and came to be."
  • The film is heavily influenced by David Cronenberg, SCANNERS, and THE FLY as they were big influences on the look of the film.
  • The film is an origin story and there are influences of what Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were doing in the 60’s all the way up into the present day.
  • Renowned composer and three-time Best Original Score Oscar nominee Philip Glass (KUNDUN, THE HOURS, and NOTES ON A SCANDAL) is scoring the movie with Marco Beltrami.
  • The film recently did a few days of additional photography and it was to film some bits and pieces. The original shoot was seventy-two days and they were on-schedule and on-budget.
  • Trank’s first cut of the film was around 2 hours and 10 minutes. He said the final film will probably be between 2 hours and 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Trank explained in detail why, as highlighed above, they "consciously decided to not release anything official" until just now:

This isn’t like The Avengers. Even when the first Avengers came out, there were four other movies that people were familiar with. The suits and the tone and the look and the feel. So they could release those things or drop them on Twitter. With Simon on the X-Men movies, there were other movies that came before the last X-Men movie so Bryan [Singer] could feel more confident in tweeting teases of what’s to come. But this movie, we really want the audience to have the proper reaction to this material seeing it for the first time. You’ve really got to put your best foot forward. You can’t just leak an image to strike up a conversation. You want people to see something that has thought behind it. And the teaser should do just that. With conversations online, you can’t really control it. In this day and age people have come to expect that artists are going to give everybody information on Twitter about what they’re doing, but not every artist is like that. I’m not really like that. If I was painting a picture I wouldn’t want to take a picture of a single paint stroke. I’d rather show people what it looks like when it’s done.

I think that's a great way to describe why they didn’t want to release anything just yet. It definitely goes hand-in-hand with the suggestion that the studio doesn’t quite know how to market this one yet; and thinking about that now, that could actually mean we are about to be given something new after all. Scary and wonderful isn’t it?

The first trailer for THE FANTASTIC FOUR is expected to debut before the studio’s Kingsman: The Secret Service on February 13, 2015. THE FANTASTIC FOUR starring Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Toby Kebbell is still scheduled to hit theaters on August 7, 2015.

Dr. Doom the Blogger vs Mr. Fantastic Jr. the Grocer

This movie just sounds epic, if you like the whole blogger vs grocer aspect... If you think that sounds lame, look at it like this: 30 year old man vs a diverse group of teens, who happen to work at a grocery store.


I can't seem to put a positive spin on this no matter how hard I try.

The hate for this movie is so stupid and childish. The exact arguments (contemporay re-imagining, costume changes, secrecy, casting, etc.) people use to hate on this movie could have been used and probably were for Batman Begins back in the day, and we all know how the people complaining are probably the same ones getting a boner anytime Christopher Nolan's name is mentionned. How about you stop acting so righteous and wait for the movie to actually come out before spreading so much hate.

Shut up. Nobody cares about your gung ho quest for this shitty movie. This movie has done nothing but piss everyone off. There hasn't been a single piece of good news about this movie. If you can't look at the facts, you are only deluding yourself. This movie has no chance of being any good. Veterans of this site can smell a shitty movie a mile away. You better take heed and listen to those on this site because we tend to know if a movie will be good or bad. We have it down to a science.

Hmmm. I don't think its so much about hate as it is about disappointment. We can only formulate an opinion based on the news we have been given and for the most part it has been those in the production that have given us that news which makes it pretty trustworthy. Fans of FF can't be faulted for building a picture around that. Especially those people who need to make a judgement call because they can't afford to see every single film. I'm happy for those who can but I certainly can't. I

I'm happy for those who can but I certainly can't. I made a similar call with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and that judgement served me pretty well and left me with money to spend on seeing something more deserving. Moreover, I don't see why its childish to be disappointed with a direction a movie is taking with a popular source. That is the chance a studio/director takes when they decide to reinvent. If they go that route they better sell it. If they don't that is not the fault of the fans. They have a right to expect something BEFORE they part with their cash. There needs to be good incentive. I've made it very clear what my own issues are below so I won't repeat them, but I stand by them and I think they're sound and reasonable as are some of the other arguments I have read. Regarding the comparison you are making with Batman and assuming that its the same people who said this and that. I'm sorry but that is an assumption based on no facts. A sweeping statement with no proof behind it to suit a flimsy argument. Taking this into account, who here is being self-righteous?

First of all, he isn't called "the Fantastic Batman", so going realistic with him made more sense. Secondly, the Dark Knight movies are way more faithful to the comics than given credits for. Thirdly, BB starred Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. You really think FF's cast compare?

JimmyArrow and MovieManiac, thanks for your mature replies.

I'm just saying people here dismissed this movie from the get go, and I feel that type of "jumping to conclusions" with actual anger behavior is really not good. There is some real venom expressed here, and I just feel it's reay excessive when nothing is available. I have seen it countless times over the 10+ years i've been visiting this site, and it just feels like deja vu, yet often the same people who spread this negativity are the ones that enjoy the questionned films the most, without taking back all the bad things they said. My feelings on the movie itself is not what I was arguing (I always liked FF the least of all Marvel comics growing up and I think their story is pretty boring, so I'm not super excited to see another adaptation of it; I think Chronicle was good, but it's the director's only movie I've seen so I'm not completely sold on him, I think Kate Mara is a very average actress, but I think Teller and Jordan are super talented; overall, it's not a movie I have been looking forward to, but I will make up my mind on it after I see a trailer).

I'm a fan of many comics, including the Fantastic Four. As such, my expectations for comic movies are high and my reactions to every news posted are often passionate and not often in a negative way. For example, the only thing I know about the Doctor Strange movie is the main actor and the director and I'm already excited. But this film is different. Saying the main cast is talented (they are) doesn't mean they aren't miscast, and I know the source material enough to know that they are. And believing that some comic book movies should have a realistic feel (I do) doesn't mean that any comic book property can go that route.

I agree that trailers are the most important part of the promotion of a film but if a movie is miscast and the description of the tone by the filmmaker feels completely off, it is appropriate to panic right away. The existence of trolls who always complain for no reason doesn't change that.

@ThatYellowBastard

It's not about names being ridiculous (I don't think either name is), it's about the importance of the fantasy element. Both comics have fantasy in them but Batman was clearly influenced by the crime comics of the era and can use a crime movie aesthetic and still be faithful. On the other end, the Fantastic Four comics are pretty much tied to their Jules Verne-inspired concept and need some crazy stuff to happen in every issue. The trick Chris Nolan likes to pull in his

Actually, no. The concept of Batman Begins was getting Batman back to the basics without the neon lights and nipply costumes that Schumaker introduced. The Batman in Batman Begins looked exactly like the Batman in the 40s and everybody said so when they saw the footage. There was even a fan trailer with Batman vs Predator that was released before Batman Begins that people reacted positively to and that must have told Warner Brothers they were going in the right direction.

It is true that fan reaction to the first Fantastic Four movie was bad but it wasn't as bad as this: first of all, there was concern over the tone of the movie with Tim Story describing it as a "sitcom" (which was accurate); then there were concerns (just like this time) that the movie was being filmed but there was no footage. People were worried that the movie was going to look cheap. People were also concerned about Jessica Alba being cast as Sue Storm.

Actually, I think it was the X-Men that received the biggest negative reaction when the production footage first came out: people complained that the X-Men costumes looked like they were taken from the Matrix set and they even complained about Ian McKellan as Magneto because they had images of the Nazi from Apt Pupil and they thought he was all wrong for Magneto. (Seriously.) People still complain about the costumes even though the blue and yellow costumes from the 60s would have looked very strange, (They worked in X-Men: First Class because that movie was set in the 60s.)

The Tim Story Fantastic Four movie actually got the Fantastic Four right. Seriously, nobody complained about Chris Evans as Johnny Storm or Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm. The Thing did look a bit cheap but this was back in 2005 and people had complained that the Hulk in Ang Lee's 2003 movie looked like a cartoon character. (He still looked like a cartoon character in the 2008 movie; they didn't get everything right until they did the Avengers in 2012.) People complained about the actor who played Mister Fantastic being bland but that was as much due to the script as to the actor. No, the real problem with the Fantastic Four was Doctor Doom's voice and while that may seem a minor detail it was a big problem when the actor was trying to sound threatening under his mask.

This time, however, everything seems wrong. If Doctor Doom is cast too young then, again, he won't be scary. And while people complained that Jessica Alba didn't look like Sue Storm she actually looked great: this time Kate Mara doesn't look at all like Sue Storm which then begs the question why they didn't just simply cast someone who would look like Michael B. Jordan's sister. (I actually hope they just ignore race and make them brother and sister; imagine if Mariah Carey had a brother for example.)

The costumes are also a bit of problem: how are these suits supposed to stay intact when Johnny flames on or when Ben becomes the Thing? How are the suits supposed to stretch with Reed or turn invisible with Sue? The spandex suits in the 2005 movie made a lot of sense. I don't care about the color: the comics have had the Fantastic Four wearing black suits. I do care that it won't make any sense when the suits they are wearing don't fall apart the first time they use their powers. Maybe this will be addressed. We'll see.

WB released a shitty Green Lantern teaser with unfinished cgi a year in advance just so they could get it out in front of Harry Potter and it seemed to be "the norm". Agreed, it wasn't that great a movie, but the four extra months of bad word of mouth helped kill its box office.

It's only within these last five years or so that teasers have "had" to come out a year in advance. This movie is still 8 months away, and I'm sure there is a lot of work to be done. I'd rather see a kickass

I'd rather see a kickass trailer 5 months before release than a shoddily put together one right now. Honestly I'm glad this is the first thing I've seen from the movie.

And honestly, for the general public that don't check movie sites like this everyday, it's really only the two months ahead of release that matter advertising wise.

Also, the suit isn't what I expected but I think it'll look cool on the screen.

I don't recognise this!

Iím not saying thereís no way this film is gonna be good. There is always a chance. I also admit that Iím a fan of FF and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that because everyone is a fan of something. I identified with FF, Spiderman and Hulk when I was a kid and when I see them I feel nostalgic. It doesnít have to be any more complicated than that. So to make my point Iíll choose a safe bet like Aliens because most people on this site will be fans. For the sake of the argument letís

So to make my point Iíll choose a safe bet like Aliens because most people on this site will be fans. For the sake of the argument letís pretend that Aliens was a comic book first. So now there is some exciting news! Aliens is going to be made into a movie by sci-fi comedy director Joe Cornish who has his own vision! Ripley will now be a school teacher and the marines will be her street-wise pupils who grew up on the streets of south central. While on an intergalactic school field trip they happen upon a derelict spaceship andÖ.. So who could say before it hits the movie theatre? This film might be great! But would the fans like it? No way. Would the majority give it a chance? Hahahahaha! Donít make me laugh. And that would be understandable. As a fan of FF I want to be able to recognise the characterís and their personalities. We already know they are way too young. Their beginnings have been altered. Their dynamics have been altered. The villain has been altered. I donít recognise it. The Fly and scanners are great films. Itís easy to name drop them so people will go Ďooohhhh!í. Have I ever thought of those movies in relation to FF? No. This film might be good. If it is of course I will eventually see it. But it really is clear at this point that it wonít be recognisable to fans of FF. Can a faithful adaptation be done? Of course it can. As some have said below, in many ways Pixar have shown the way. As a fan (as with any fan of anything), that is what I want.

I don't get how they're managing to screw this up. Pixar made a fantastic Fantastic Four movie, it was called The Incredibles, so it's possible to do it without making a ridiculous amount of changes to the source material.

I've been skeptical but open minded about this project. There has been nothing about the production so far that has turned me off, other than how the studio is presenting it. The secrecy behind it and the public reaction bombarding the internet has influenced me. But i'm still trying to stay optimistic.

The secrecy behind it and the public reaction bombarding the internet has influenced me. But i'm still trying to stay optimistic. I like the cast, they are not who i would choice but they are good actors and i trust Trank (who was excellent with Chronicle). Fantastic Four needs rebooting, and it needs to be different for Fox to compete with Disney and Warner Brothers. If not then they could have the same fate as Sony's Spiderman. They are trying to be smart when practically all of geekdom is against them. Time will tell if this movie is gonna be good or bad, but seeing as the people involved have a good track record, and we havent seen anything official about the film, i think we can wait to throw stones at them.

Croenberg feel with Glass composing?

This just got my interest peaked again. If this works, it will be something legendary...if it fails...it will be a miraculous failure

Phillip Glass...

is the only reason why I'm giving this article a green. Outstanding composer! And yes, I would see a shit film for the soundtrack (Tron: Legacy, Juno, Nick and Nora's) so I'm definitely going to be there to see what comes from this.

WB released a shitty Green Lantern teaser with unfinished cgi a year in advance just so they could get it out in front of Harry Potter and it seemed to be "the norm". Agreed, it wasn't that great a movie, but the four extra months of bad word of mouth helped kill its box office.

It's only within these last five years or so that teasers have "had" to come out a year in advance. This movie is still 8 months away, and I'm sure there is a lot of work to be done. I'd rather see a kickass

I'd rather see a kickass trailer 5 months before release than a shoddily put together one right now. Honestly I'm glad this is the first thing I've seen from the movie.

And honestly, for the general public that don't check movie sites like this everyday, it's really only the two months ahead of release that matter advertising wise.

Also, the suit isn't what I expected but I think it'll look cool on the screen.

I'm all for change but this looks like what they make you wear at Laser Quest... or some kind of cheap rollerblading outfit. It's really bad design.

Graham must have really enjoyed his sugar laden kool-aid if he buys that any of this sound or looks like a good idea.

They can do it. It just needed refining. Cap America looked horrible in The Avengers. Looks great now.

Is that the suit or is he doing stop-motion capture? Lame. Nothing about this movie sounds good and now we get an image and nothing about this movie looks good either.

I Hate on this Film Like Everyone Else

Like the suit, if it was for something different. I seen both Scanners and The Fly, and I don't want a FF film like that, Maybe more like the Incredibles.

Yeah I'm failing to see how either one of those films would have ANYTHING in common with the FF. Maybe we can hope for a nice head explosion scene and for the scene when Sue gives birth to a live maggot baby.

I really hope this one turns out to be good. I like the four main actors, especially Teller and Jordan. But I have to say I am beyond nervous, hopefully we get an actual trailer soon to ease that. I do have to say I am not a fan of them changing Doom into a blogger/hacker or whatever he is.

Even if the film sucks we should get an interesting score from it. Beltrami is usually reliable and has done a couple of superhero films before (Hellboy and The Wolverine). This isn't the type of film I would associate Philip Glass with, but some of his music was used during the Dr. Manhattan scenes in The Watchman, so I can imagine it working.

I Don't Hate on This Like Most People

This is just not looking good. Are those four yellow striped on his chest supposed to be the "4"? Different for the sake of being different?

"Oh nooz.. his suit isn't blue!!"

You know people are probably going to complain about the color of his suit. I think it looks good. But I wonder is that a prototype suit Johnny is wearing or the final suit all of the Fantastic Four will be wearing? And I can understand Trank not wanting to release anything until he has a finished product. Most unfinished films look like shit.

Oh no batman is green. Oh no superman is orange.
Unless you're colour blind the fucking colours matter.
For the record the ff had white, blue and red costumes. But that doesn't mean they should not go with blue.

Well FF's color isn't very important or iconic and you just proved that when you mentioned they were white, blue, and red. The colors have changed before so there's no big deal. On the other hand, Batman and Superman are icons and people expect to see their traditional costumes. Furthermore, Batman's color is relevant to who he is.. you know, The Dark Knight.

Erm, dude the outfit is very iconic as far as comic books are concerned. It's been around since their first comics in the 60's.

I really don't get why you, Mr Positive himself, are so negative on this one. All we know so far are small details and big rumors! Why not wait until we have actually seen something from it before we judge it?

The fact that they turn Doctor Doom into an enraged internet blogger (I still hope it's a fake plot to throw audiences off) really pisses me off.

No, not enough, Soloist. What about the cast is terrible? Ive only seen Jordan once but the other ones are highly talented. They might not all look like your favorite artists version of FF but that doesn't mean they are bad or wont work in the role. The blogger part is underwhelming if Doom is only that, and if its true at all. If. And yet he could still turn into a monster with his powers and work fine.

Doom doesn't have any powers. He's an evil genius who has a gift for strategy that makes him virtually impossible for even the super-powered group to defeat. The bad movies that came before this turned him into a super-powered villain, but he never was in the comics, and there's been no suggestion that he will be in the film.

I did not know that Doom was not a super. I thought something disfigured his face and gave him powers? In the comics I mean, not the films. So he's basically just an evil dictatorial watchmaker?

Doesn't Doctor Doom have a bit of dark magic involved in his story too, rather than just being all tech? There's the whole thing with his mother being killed by Mephisto and I'm sure he's had mystic elements to his armor over the years.

At this point some people are going to hate whatever is released. So releasing a finished product just gives them less fuel.
