The new Fantastic Four is here, and it’s surprinsingly very good.
All this week I’ve been saying that anything is going to top that awesome Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that came out on Thursday, but this is brighter that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Why do I compare it to the darkness of another movie? Well, the Fantastic Four new adaptation was a more serious and dark take on these characters. It definitely looks grounded at some points, but man, it looks good. We get that the first look at Doom, which looks exactly like that image that was posted on Geek Broadside almost a year ago. It’s exciting to see all these characters coming together. They interact so well, there’s fun. A serious take where we can find joy and excitement.
The trailer looks fantastic. Pun intended.
I wrote a rant last year about this movie, where I told the studios to adapt the properties properly. I said many times in that article that this movie is going to suck (and I’d love to be proven wrong). That being said, after watching a butt-ass nude Thing in action, Fantastic Four looks very promising. I’m in.
