While Warner Bros. and DC have tried for years to launch a Plastic Man movie, they still haven't found the right way to do the character justice. Not even with their upcoming slate of superhero films. But Marvel and 20th Century Fox long beat them to the punch with their official Fantastic Four movie way back in 2005. Its true that Mister Fantastic shares some of the same stretching abilities, which were put on display in two sequels. Now a reboot is coming this summer. So what will this new stretchable superhero look like? While we didn't get to see Mister Fantastic go to work in the trailer, actor Miles Teller, who is rebooting the iconic role of Reed Richards, offers an answer.
Speaking with Empire, the actor doesn't exactly explain the science behind Reed Richards, but he does explain that he tried to learn the meaning behind the technical dialogue as best he could. »

It's clobberin' time!O.K., so The Thing doesn't actually say his famous catchphrase in this first trailer for "Fantastic Four" ... and that's probably a good thing.This reboot is clearly more serious than the Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd films from 2005 and 2007, this time with Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the supersuits.Director Josh Trank opened up about the film with Collider, saying this new version will "fall in line more with a Cronenberg-ian science fiction tale of something horrible happening to your body and [it] transforming out of control," a la "The Fly."The trailer doesn't do much to explain the plot, but Trank says you can expect a "modern telling" of how the four main characters got their superpowers. And speaking of those powers, we gotta say, they look pretty cool in the brief glimpses we see above. »

There has been much speculation surrounding the movie and the lack of news coming out of the set, but all worries have been cast aside now that we’re getting our first look at the world of the Fantastic Four in this teaser. And we have to say we’re pleasantly pleased with the tone and mood Trank has set up for his re-imagining of the Marvel team.
Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell star as the titular foursome who are physically transformed after they teleport to an alternate universe where untold dangers await them. With their lives and physical nature irreversibly shaken, the four must learn to work together as a team to save Earth from a friend-turned-enemy.
Judging from this footage, we’re going »

Finally, the teaser trailer for Josh "Chronicle" Trank's new take on Fantastic Four you've been waiting for is here. It's definitely darker than the Chris Evans / Jessica Alba / Ioan Gruffudd / Michael Chiklis era, and it's bound to get you excited.Featuring Whiplash's Miles Teller as Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic, House Of Cards' Kate Mara as Susan Storm / Invisible Woman, Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm / Human Torch and Billy Elliot himself, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm / The Thing, the fourth live-action Fantastic Four film – you'd forgotten this one, hadn't you? – has Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' Toby Kebbell as Victor Domashev / Doom.It’s a teaser in the grand tradition – its almost avowed dedication to keeping the big reveals at elongated arm’s length may leave you with more questions than answers – but its serious, sombre tone will almost certainly be nothing »
20th Century Fox is set to debut the first trailer for The Fantastic Four reboot in theaters on February 13, attached to prints of Kingsman: The Secret Service, but it isn't known if the studio will release the trailer online before then. While we wait for this first footage to debut, many are hoping that the studio will also release the first photos of the cast, since we haven't seen any official images from the reboot thus far. Today, Nerdist's sources offered new details about the costumes, which they gave to their own artists who come up with unofficial renderings of what the costumes may look like. These images are not of official artwork from 20th Century Fox, but these artistic renderings are all we have to go on until the first trailer is released. Here's what Nerdist's Jessica Chobot had to say about Miles Teller's Mr. Fantastic suit.
If you thought Hot Tub Time Machine was raunchy, the latest Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer gives us a peek at the even more ridiculously inappropriate sequel. Be warned, if you.re not in a secure place to view topless women or hear jokes about how a bald Clarke Duke looks like "Michael Chiklis fucked Big Daddy Warbucks who fucked Lex Luthor," then you should hold off for a while. Yeah, it.s pretty Nsfw. The latest Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer is short enough to take up a brief TV spot but packed with enough cusses, inappropriate jokes (one about cancer patients), drug use and boobs to last you the weekend. Not much is really all that new, though. The sequel sees the return of buddies Lou (Rob Corddry), Jacob (Clark Duke) and Nick (Craig Robinson), as they head into the future. Since the first film, they »
Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.
Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.
Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

[Spoiler Alert: This post discusses plot details of the Jan. 7 episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.] It wasn't such a Happy New Year for a lot of the freaks on American Horror Story. Jimmy (Evan Peters) discovered that Stanley (Denis O'Hare) had sold his hands. Elsa (Jessica) found out the sad fate of Ma Petite. But the fella who had the worst batch of luck was definitely Michael Chiklis' Dell: the strongman was shot dead by Elsa after he confessed to Ma Petite's murder.
