The first official trailer for the long-awaited Fantastic Four reboot has landed and it looks set to be another gargantuan hit for studio giant Marvel.
One thing that first came to mind when news of this film first surfaced, was the unexpected cast lineup including Jamie Bell, Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan. The Fantastic Four has until recently been known for it’s relatively mature cast of characters, with the last series of films, The Fantastic Four (2005) and The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) starring The Shield‘s Michael Chiklis who at the time was in his early forties.
This rein-visioning of The Fantastic Four story will also prove to be a big milestone in not only Marvel‘s history, but in comic book history in general, when Michael B. Jordan hits screens as pyro-extraordinaire Jonny Storm, who until now has been a portrayed as a young white man – it’s a great stepping stone to the possibilities of other famous superheroes adaptin and changing, like news of a female Thor one day in the not so distant future.
One things for certain though, Marvel‘s box-office dominance clearly knows no bounds as the studio cements itself as the most successful movie studio in history.
The Fantastic Four land in cinemas worldwide on August 6, 2015.
