As excited as I am for the upcoming slate of Marvel Studios projects I’ve almost written off Fantastic Four before it even gets rolling. Hollywood as a whole has struggled to capture Marvel’s First Foursome in film form, and I’m not convinced this will be any different.
To the Fantastic Four’s credit, I actually enjoyed the first trailer, and thought it brought an interesting atmosphere to the team, mostly due to the pedigree of the director Josh Trank.
This second trailer continues the spirit of that as well, surprisingly. No, there are no especially unique Fantastic Four costumes or logo’s, but the feel is different than what we’ve seen in Fantastic Four films of years past. I may not see this one in the theater, but I’ll check it out on home release. Hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Hot Toys is beginning its tour of Asia, making the rounds at various conventions, and in the midst of doing so has begun revealing some before unseen new Avengers: Age of Ultron figures!
Their first stop is Hong Kong, at Hysan Place & Lee Theatre, where they have set up an elaborate display including some existing figures, some new figures, and an amazing diorama featuring the Hulk and Hulkbuster Iron Man going toe-to-toe.
