The upcoming Fantastic Four film recently showed the world it’s new, extended trailer. After watching it a few times I’d like to confirm that yes…I’ll take it! While I was pretty much onboard from the beginning, I did wonder how certain elements of this reboot would affect the Fantastic Four story because I’m actually a fan of the first film and a bigger fan of the second. But this reboot has me (and the internet fan critics) wondering things like: What would director Josh Trank and writer Simon Kinberg do differently? What liberties would they take? How would The Thing look? And what was rumor we heard about Doctor Doom?! We all saw the teaser which didn’t show much a while back but this new trailer shows plenty. I’m pretty comfortable with everything Fox has done, so far, with Marvel’s “First Family” and after a few more views – yeah I’m fine with how The Thing looks and I LOVE how they did Johnny Storm! I like the little bit of build-up we see in regards to the relationships as well in this new trailer. I do want to see a little more of how Doom looks in this version of Fantastic Four, especially due to that glimpse we got of his mask. But does it really matter? We only have around four months until clobberin’ time anyway!
