Traditional fans of the Fantastic Four, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Those odd containment suits that Michael B. Jordan's Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. Kate Mara's Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman and Miles Teller's Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic wearing won't be the only costumes they don in Josh Trank's reboot.
These are the beta versions of the costumes, which is great [...] But, yeah it would be very odd if the Fantastic Four didn't don the traditional costumes," Teller told Screen Crush at an Insurgent press event. "You've got to. There is some servicing there. You've got to give that to the fans. That's what it's all about."
There were a lot of positive comments after the trailer was released, but one of the main negatives was the costumes. It came off as shunning of the source material, which is something you don't want to do when making a superhero film. Adding a gritty, edgy feel to a film doesn't mean you have to sacrifice elements from the comic books.
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 will land in theaters August 7, 2015.
