In the minds of most fans, Marvel Studios can do no wrong. Churning out fan pleasing hit after hit, the Kevin Feige led studio creates the comic book movies which their rivals struggle to match, especially as moviegoers view them as the best there is at what they do.
Despite that, it would be wrong to say that they are perfect. While it’s difficult on the surface to find fault with Marvel Studios (they managed to make a hit out of Guardians Of The Galaxy), there are at least ten example which prove that they have made some mistakes.
Fans are quick to attack other superhero studios like Sony – though in fairness, that’s not exactly hard after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – and Fox, but the latter have turned their fortunes around with X-Men: Days Of Future Past and the extremely impressive looking Fantastic Four reboot.

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.
We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery.
Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Even these basic facts are a little complicated. While the question »
Watch the new Fantastic Four trailer.
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. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
The Fantastic Four was the first superhero team created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist/co-plotter Jack Kirby, who developed a collaborative approach to creating comics with this title that they would use from then on. As the first superhero team title produced by Marvel Comics, it formed a cornerstone of the company’s »

“Potentially doing this #GreenLantern role isn’t an opportunity its more like a ‘responsibility,’ the actor wrote on Instagram with self-portraits as the DC Comics superhero

After much anticipation, the first full-length look at director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot is finally here, and it's already apparent that the film will have a different look and feel than its 2005 predecessor. Most notably, rather than starring celebrity heavy-hitters like Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, Trank's version features a group of young, up-and-coming actors known for their indie work. Making up the super hero team is Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Teller recently starred in the Academy Award Best Picture nominee, "Whiplash," an indie favorite where his co-star, J.K. Simmons, is sweeping the awards race. Jordan rose to fame after a breakout performance in "Fruitvale Station," which debuted at Sundance in 2013. Bell is fresh off a supporting role in the South Korean hit, »

You knew it was bound to happen. After all, it’s been years since the last cinematic incarnation of Marvel’s Fantastic Four. You know, the one that featured Captain America‘s Chris Evans in his first Marvel superhero role: Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch. Well, have no fear, there’s a new version of the Fantastic Four […]

After months of radio silence from 20th Century Fox, we finally have our first glimpse at Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. The footage is... interesting. They don't show a ton of the Fantastic Four in action, so we're left with a glimpse into the story and the tone they're trying to set. From the looks of it, this one looks pretty dour and super serious. This definitely isn't Tim Story's The Fantastic Four movies (thank god!) from a few years back. This looks more like Nolan's Interstellar than typical caped crusader fare. As I've said before, it's easy to get pretty bored with superhero movies, so I hope this one is as good as the footage promises. I was a huge fan of Josh Trank's Chronicle and I like all the actors they've assembled for this. Beyond all else, it's good to finally have some footage to watch. »

After months of dogged secrecy, apparently hesitant studio bosses and allegedly extensive reshoots (although that's something that's been firmly denied), the first teaser trailer for the Fantastic Four reboot has finally hit screens. But what does it tell us about the film?
We've been breaking it down, and here's what we found...
It was already fairly obvious from the casting choices, but this version of the Fantastic Four has a lot in common with their Ultimate-universe counterparts, who were pitched considerably younger than the traditional version. Pipe-smoking, white-templed Reed Richards is replaced by pimply undergrad Reed Richards, and like follows like with the other characters.
Interestingly, the footage suggests that the senior Dr. Franklin Storm – Sue and Johnny's father – might be part of the project that gets the Four into space, »
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 »

The teaser for the reboot of the Fantastic Four series is here! And the first official look at the film shows a very different (and darker) version of the original live adaptation that help made Chris Evans a star.
In the new series, Michael B. Jordan takes on the role of Johnny Storm (a.k.a Human Torch). He and his That Awkward Moment co-star, Miles Teller, who plays Mr. Fantastic, are bringing a new vibe to the franchise.
Rounding out the team are Kata Mara as Sue Storm (a.k.a. Invisible Woman) and Jamie Bell as The Thing.
While it’s not confirmed, the new film looks to take place in the same universe as the X-Men franchise. However, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg refuted that idea. What is clear is that the new film directed by Josh Trank is more grounded in reality -- a trend »
The Fantastic Four trailer is here! A superhero project that some are eyeing rather dubiously has today revealed a first glimpse at the project.
Give it a watch below:
Gone are the bright colours and camp one-liners of the previous movies which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, replaced with a more muted palette and serious tone. It feels somewhere between the trailer for Batman Begins and Interstellar.
Director Josh Trank, who also gave us Chronicle, has recently stated that he approached the project as though it were not a Superhero movie but instead a ‘hard science fiction’ film. He went on to say that he believes his version of the four friends who find themselves gifted with extraordinary powers has more in common with a David Cronenberg film; if this is the case we can’t wait to see Jamie Bell pull a Goldblum as he morphs into The Thing. »

For a while there, it seemed like maybe the Fantastic Four reboot was as imaginary as Stan Lee wished the Roger Corman version was. But here, at last, with barely more than six months left until its release, is our first teaser. Sorry if you want a lot of footage of the superhero quartet in action and using their powers or even showing off their powers, because this is still only a slight look at what we have to look forward to. Still, what’s here is pretty, um, fantastic. There’s voiceover narration from The Wire and House of Cards actor Reg E. Cathey, who plays Dr. Franklin Storm — father of Johnny and Sue. There are a mere hints at The Thing and Human Torch in transformed mode. Mostly, though, this is interestingly Interstellar-like in the story it’s teasing. If we didn’t know it was a superhero movie, I »

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 »
Fantastic Four has premiered its first trailer online.
The new Fantastic Four film is reportedly inspired by Marvel's Ultimate comic book series.
The movie will open in cinemas on August 6. Watch star Miles Teller discuss his involvement in the series below: »
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.
For Fantastic Four fans, only four days remain until the wildly-anticipated trailer for the 2015 reboot starring Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny arrives. Attached to the UK premiere of Kingsman: The Secret Service, it makes sense why Fox would choose to debut the trailer with director Matthew Vaughn's latest movie - he is producing The Fantastic Four. January 29th couldn't come any closer and one Twitter user notorious for leaking movie material has already weighed in with his thoughts. G@Brielgr@Y made another tweet replying to a fan for more detailed information on the forthcoming trailer. @petr_hruby Couldn't be more different from the last incarnation, loose camera work, fast and gritty. Looks good, not to be written off. — G@Brielgr@Y (@Gbrielgry) January 25, 2015 It was already known that this reboot was intended as a much grittier and grounded adaptation of the Fantastic Four and would be a complete »
LiveJournal is getting into online video in a way which should please the site’s more visually-inclined users. The anonymity-supporting blogging platform introduced video hosting on January 22, 2015, and comic book legend Stan Lee was the first to upload a video using the new feature.
Before the video hosting feature was introduced, LiveJournal bloggers were able to embed videos from other sites (but they’d have to upload their own video content to sites like YouTube before they could link or embed to them). LiveJournal’s new native video hosting simplifies this process. The platform’s users can now upload a video directly to LiveJournal, share it with their friends, and easily embed it into their posts.

Fantastic Four #642
Written by James Robinson
Pencilled by Leonard Kirk
Inked by Karl Kesel
Colored by Jesus Aburtov
Published by Marvel Comics
Fantastic Four #642 does some things very well, like depicting action scenes, actually doing something with the much maligned Heroes Reborn Universe, or having a couple third act plot twists. However, most of the story is rooted in superhero cliches ranging from heroes fighting then teaming up to villainous monologues and even a weak riff on Watchmen. Leonard Kirk and Karl Kesel’s art fares well in the heroes vs. heroes (and villains) fighting areas, but not so much in the emotional department as Kesel’s inks don’t give his characters much definition in their faces and body movements. For most of the story, the art comes off as fairly loose and by the numbers, and Aburtov’s colors match it as the various superhero costumes lack any visual pop. »
