The Fantastic Four reboot has released some new stills online… and we get a closer look at the Invisible Woman’s costume.
After the impressive Fantastic Four trailer, many fans were left wondering whether these iconic Marvel superheroes would get anything resembling their classic costumes. But while we still have no confirmation either way, it looks as though we finally get a closer look at their gritty, black suits.
And the Invisible Woman looks kinda awesome.
Thanks to Empire Magazine for this exclusive look at the Fantastic Four.
It’s certainly a very different look compared to the recent Fantastic Four films… but as you can see in the following pictures, the new costumes are rather fitting. After all, each new suit is designed to complement the powers of its wearer.
Or perhaps keep them under control…
Offering an exclusive look at the entire team, these four new stills shine the spotlight on all four members of the team, including Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell).
But if you were hoping to catch a glimpse of The Thing in all his rocky glory, it looks as though we may have to wait a little while longer.
Speaking to Empire Magazine, director Josh Trank explained that the tone of his Fantastic Four is very different to previous incarnations – comparing it to a ‘dark Amblin movie’. And writer/producer Simon Kinberg explained what he meant by that.
“There was an Amblin-style approach to the characterisation, and to contextualising everything in a real world,” he said. So perhaps that blue, skin-tight lycra won’t be making an appearance after all.
“There’s the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic,” said Trank. “The opportunity is right there in the material. We’d rather steer it in that direction as opposed to just embracing a tone that comes right off the page.”
Of course, you can see that very different visual style almost immediately in these images as well as throughout the first teaser trailer… and I can’t help thinking this is exactly the right way to approach a franchise which had become increasingly cheesy.
And I can’t wait to see the finished product.
Fantastic Four heads to cinemas on 6 August 2015.
