‘The Fantastic Four’ First Official Teaser Trailer Released [WATCH]
The first teaser trailer for Fox’s highly anticipated reboot of The Fantastic Four has arrived, giving viewers a glimpse at the new generation of superheroes.
Fantastic Four Official Teaser Trailer
Fox released the first Fantastic Four teaser trailer Tuesday, after a long production period where very little about the film and its plot was released. The teaser provides fans with a first look at Miles Teller starring as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing and Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman.
The highlight of the trailer is, without a doubt, the series of short clips showing the team using their powers – including what appears to be the birth of The Thing – but the focus is mainly on Reed Richards.

The film will explore the scientist’s early discoveries that led the group into space in the first place, confirming what fans have already been speculating, that the film breaks away from the traditional Fantastic Four origin story. Instead of getting their powers from cosmic rays during a failed space mission (as seen in 2005’s Fantastic Four), this group gets their powers after teleporting into another dimension – technology invented by Richards – as seen in The Fantastic Four Ultimate comics.
“I really wanted to see science in science fiction, which I think we rarely see,” said director Josh Trank.
The trailer comes over a month after Fox released the official synopsis – one of the only details released about the film’s content thus far.
‘The 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.
Fantastic Four hits theaters on Aug. 7.
