Here is our best look yet at how a certain foursome becomes so fantastic.
This exclusive clip from Josh Trank’s upcoming superhero reboot Fantastic Four sets up the origins of the titular characters. Mirroring the plot of the Ultimate Fantastic Four comic book, the clip finds Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) preparing for their maiden voyage into another dimension — called the N-Zone in the Marvel Universe — which will give them extraordinary abilities. Richards turns into the stretchable Mr. Fantastic; Storm becomes the highly flammable Human Torch; Grimm morphs into the Thing, the team’s literal rock.
While the footage does not include Sue Storm aka The Invisible Woman (Kate Mara), there is a fourth member of the team revealed here: Victor Domashev, played by English actor Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
Yes, as in the comic, the soon-to-be Dr. Doom starts out as colleague. And part of the fun will be seeing how the interdimensional traveling will transform him into a multi-powered, brainiac supervillain, who hides behind a suit of armor.
Fantastic Four teleports into theaters on Aug. 7.
