Here’s the trailer for the eagerly anticipated ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot that has us hungry for more! The must-see trailer gives us our first glimpse of the villainous Dr. Doom. Click to WATCH!
The new Fantastic Four trailer is awesome AND frightening at the same time. The first full trailer dropped early, and we are thrilled about it! Not only did we get more footage of Miles Teller, 28, as Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan, 28, as the Human Torch, Kate Mara, 32, as Invisible Woman and Jamie Bell, 29, as The Thing, but we also got our very first look at the truly despicable and seriously scary Dr. Doom, played by Toby Kebbell, 32. Cover your eyes if you can’t watch!
‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer: First Look At Dr. Doom
This movie is going to be so good. This reboot is such a fresh take on the comics, and the characters have been cast perfectly. The quartet manages to tap into dimensional travel, but things go horribly wrong. The lives of Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm are forever changed, and they must battle Dr. Doom before he destroys the world.
The trailer features incredible close-ups of the Fantastic Four’s powers. A voiceover can be heard ominously saying, “You opened a door you don’t know how to close. You don’t know anything about what’s coming.”
That’s when we get our first shot of Toby Kebbell’s Dr. Doom. Not going to lie, he looks pretty terrifying. And we know he’s about to wreak havoc. We are not emotionally prepared for this!
The revamped film comes after the 2005 adaptation of the comic book, which starred Jessica Alba. On the heels of that release, a sequel titled Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer was released in 2007. Neither was well-received critically, inspiring a total reinvention for this newest installment.
Judging by this clip, we can safely say that this reboot will likely be the hit of the summer.
Fantastic Four is set to arrive in movie theaters on Aug. 7.
