The new trailer via Yahoo of “Fantastic Four” provides a detailed look at Toby Kebbell’s Doctor Doom and how the Fantastic Four decide to fight him. The trailer opens with Reed Richards in his school days. As a child he can be seen telling his classmates that when he grows up he wants to be the “first person to teleport himself.” He adds that he has already built a device, which will help him teleport to other universe.
Dr. Franklin Storm (Reg E. Cathey) can be seen saying “it is our duty as human beings to push forward into the unknown.” Richards (as a youngster) with his three friends Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan), Susan Storm (Kate Mara) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), are in the alternate universe, where they are subjected to a supernatural force and their physical form changes.
Harvey Elder (Tim Blake Nelson) tells some of the government officials that the Fantastic Four are “dangerous and powerful," which makes them extremely valuable to the government. Dr. Franklin asks Elder not use his kids, the Fantastic Four, as weapons when Doom (Toby Kebbell) is introduced. He can be seen standing in the beam of light as the voiceover plays, “This is the end of your world and beginning of mine.” The Fantastic Four realize that Doom can be defeated only if they fight him in unity.
The trailer ends with the close-up of Doom’s mutilated face as he gives a terrifying expression. Kebbell’s character will be a computer technician in the film, but his origins will be same as comic book.
“He’s still from the same place, his mother is still a gypsy and done her deals, his father still perished from exposure looking after me. He’s angry. He’s an angry dude. But now he’s in Baxter. He’s bright and he’s trying to make people proud,” he told Superhero Hype.
Josh Trank directed “Fantastic Four” and it will open Aug. 7.
