Watch: Superheroes Get an Indie Edge in ‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer

Watch: Superheroes Get an Indie Edge in 'Fantastic Four' Trailer

After much anticipation, the first full-length look at director Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” reboot is finally here, and it’s already apparent that the film will have a different look and feel than its 2005 predecessor. Most notably, rather than starring celebrity heavy-hitters like Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, Trank’s version features a group of young, up-and-coming actors known for their indie work. 

Making up the super hero team is Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Teller recently starred in the Academy Award Best Picture nominee, “Whiplash,” an indie favorite where his co-star, J.K. Simmons, is sweeping the awards race. Jordan rose to fame after a breakout performance in “Fruitvale Station,” which debuted at Sundance in 2013. Bell is fresh off a supporting role in the South Korean hit, “Snowpiercer” and Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac: Vol. II.” Mara, aside from a starring role in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” is also an established indie star with roles in “127 Hours” and Josh Radnor’s “Happythankyoumoreplease.”
