‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer: Meet a Young Mr. Fantastic

Before he was fantastic, Reed Richards was “insane.” And that’s a compliment.

With Fantastic Four’s theatrical release fast approaching, 20th Century Fox and Marvel have unleashed yet another trailer for its reboot starring Miles Teller (Reed/Mr. Fantastic), Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm/Human Torch), Kate Mara (Susan Storm/Invisible Woman), and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm/The Thing).

The bulk of the new trailer is nothing out of the ordinary, save the opening flashback montage of an elementary school aged Reed experimenting in his parents’ garage. Stuff blows up. His friend is in awe. And the rest, as they say, is superhero history.

Fantastic Four opens nationwide Aug. 7.
