Watch The Trailer for Fantastic Four Featuring Michael B. Jordan [VIDEO]
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fantastic Four will hit theaters Aug. 7. Fox's latest take on the Marvel superhero franchise, which launched Marvel Comics with its comic-book iteration, stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the eponymous quartet of superheroes. The movie — directed by Josh Trank from a script by Trank, Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater — marks Fox's second round with the franchise, following two films released in 2005 and 2007 that starred Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Ioan Gruffudd. The reboot has a different tone than its predecessors, with Fox pulling the 2005 and 2007 films from iTunes and Amazon ahead of the new film's release so as not to create confusion in the marketplace. The new cast has an elite pedigree, starring in titles like Whiplash, House of Cards and Fruitvale Station, but Fox concedes "there were definitely some bumps in the road" during Fantastic Four's production. Still a sequel has already been scheduled for June 9, 2017.
