Jordan (Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch), and Toby Kebbell (Victor Von Doom aka Doctor Doom) were all on hand to discuss the movie.

Fans Outraged Over Change In Reed Richards’ Powers In ‘Fantastic Four’

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 Miles Teller as Reed Richards Mr. Fantastic

Reed Richards is better known as Mister Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. The character’s most notable powers are superhuman elasticity, which allows him to stretch his body at any length and makes him nearly impervious to physical attacks. Of course any slight change to that power will cause the internet community to throw their arms up in anger, and it looks like Josh Trank‘s upcoming Fantastic Four tested the limits of that anger, and as a result the studio had to make a change.

The Fantastic Four film website has some new character profiles. Focusing on our four heroes, we get some small details as to what their powers are. But when it comes to Reed Richards (Miles Teller), the description doesn’t match up to the character’s comic book lore.

‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer: Doctor Doom Has A New Look

Fantastic Four The Thing

This weekend saw three major trailers drop: first there was Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was then followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And now comes one for Fantastic Four.

Oddly enough, director Josh Trank was supposed to make an appearance on the final day of Star Wars Celebration to talk about his secret spinoff film, but attendees were told he fell ill, and could not make it. Now we can’t be certain if this is true, but a trailer dropping on the same day he was scheduled to make an appearance is quite suspect. Whatever the reason, we are getting a brand new trailer for Fantastic Four, which gives us a little more backstory on our four heroes — Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller), Invisible Woman (Kate Mara), Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan), and The Thing (Jamie Bell) — as well as the villain, Doctor Doom (Tobey Kebbell). Hit the jump to check it out.

The first images and teaser of the Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four didn’t even hint at the powers of the super-powered group, with the exception of The Thing/Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) and a very quick shot of Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards (Miles Teller) stretching out his arm. Missing in all the action were Sue Storm’s (Kate Mara) powers of invisibility and Johnny Storm’s (Michael B. Jordan) ability to turn himself into the The Human Torch.

But now a newly modified poster from Fox reveals the powers of the two aforementioned characters, but not much else. Hit the jump to check out the full poster for Fantastic Four.

The Fantastic Four movie 2015 team

Fox has released the teaser trailer for their re-imagined The Fantastic Four.

Watch it here below!

[Update – you can now watch the trailer with filmmaker video commentary HERE; also, see the teaser poster and images from the film added here below.]

The reboot stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell and is directed by Josh Trank. The story leading up to this has been a production that seeks to completely make over the fabled superheroes and go a little outside of the box when it comes to portraying the team on screen. This of course met the criticism of fans who cherish the long running comic series.

Fantastic Four

Earlier today, we talked about how the teaser trailer for The Fantastic Four is coming soon and how it will reportedly show a gritty take for Fox’s reboot of the franchise from director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and screenwriters Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater (X-Men: Days of Future Past). But while the film hits theaters this Summer, we’ve yet to see a drop of official footage or any stills from the production, which Trank recently said in an interview with Collider was a conscious decision.

But now, Collider has revealed the first behind-the-scenes look at the production for The Fantastic Four. One photo is of Trank on set, while the other is Kinberg with star Michael B. Jordan in his Human Torch suit.

Check out the photos here below.

Kate Mara Says ‘Fantastic Four’ Won’t Follow Comic Book Source Material Or Story Arcs

Fantastic Four Header Image

Comic book movies are never 100% adaptations of their respective source material. Not that there is anything wrong with that. In fact this is a common occurrence with many of these adaptations. Now with director Josh Trank‘s reboot of Fantastic Four in production, we will get to see just how different the material in the film is from its source.

With Comic-Con a little over a week away, fans will surely be adjusting many of their schedules to see if they can wait it out to see a panel for their favorite films, and one film that should be making a surprise appearance is Fantastic Four. Though they are not on the schedule, rumor has it that the stars of the film, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jaime Bell, and Michael B. Jordan, are all expected to make a surprise appearance, much like how the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past dropped by unexpectedly.

Though the rumored appearance would probably entail a friendly wave to Hall H, Mara is dropping a few hints about Simon Kinberg‘s script. According to her, the film is a reinvention of the four superheroes that will not use any previous comic book storylines. Hit the jump to read all the details.

Snowpiercer Movie Review by Adam Frazier

Snowpiercer
Director: Bong Joon-ho
Screenwriters: Bong Joon-ho, Kelly Masterson
Cast: Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, Go Ah-sung, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer
The Weinstein Company
Rated R | 125 Minutes
Release Date: June 27, 2014

Directed and co-written by South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother), Snowpiercer is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette.

In 2014, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. A class system is established on the train, with elites inhabiting first-class while the poor are sequestered to the slums of the tail section.

2031. Tail inhabitants prepare for the latest in a series of rebellions. Curtis (Chris Evans) leads Edgar (Jamie Bell), Tanya (Octavia Spencer), and the rest of the tail inhabitants in revolt, forcing their way through several train cars to the prison section. There, they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang-ho Song), the man who built the doors dividing each car, and his daughter Yona (Go Ah-sung). They offer him Kronol, an addictive drug, as payment for unlocking the remaining doors.

‘Fantastic Four’ Reboot Looking At Tim Blake Nelson For Future Mole Man

Mole Man

Actor Tim Blake Nelson has entered into talks to join the cast of Fantastic Four, Fox’s reboot of the Marvel superhero franchise.

If a deal is reached, Nelson would play Harvey Elder, an outcast and scientist who eventually goes on to become the villainous Mole Man. Apparently Mole Man will not actually be appearing in the first installment of the new Fantastic Four reboot—Toby Kebbell has already been cast to play the familiar foe Doctor Doom—but the Harvey Elder character would set up the opportunity to use him as the villain in one of the planned sequels. Though introduced long before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles existed, hopefully they’ll avoid the Leonardo with Donatello’s bo staff look seen above.
