New Featurettes Explore The Science Behind Fantastic Four

25 July 2015 2:54 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While they may have their origins in the pages of a comic book, some of the science of the Fantastic Four isn’t totally out of the realm of possibility, and it’s this thought that fuels Josh Trank’s upcoming  slightly darker re-imagining of Marvel’s First Family. So to separate the science fact fro the scene fiction, these new featurettes have come our way, with theoretical physicist Michio Kaku explaining the real life science behind some important elements of the new reboot, including wormholes, alternate dimensions, and invisibility. Released: August 7th Synopsis: Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways.
