Marvel Comics' first modern superhero success has been made into some very bad movies. The one coming up this summer has the chance to be much better, mostly by looking nothing like the comics it came from.
There's been a lot of discussion about the teaser for director Josh Trank's filmic reboot of the Fantastic Four, much of it focusing on how the dark and foreboding aesthetic seen in the clip. It reads more as a straight-up science-fliction movie and
less like a flashy superhero spectacle. That tonal difference is what intrigues me the most about what Trank might try to do with Fantastic Four.
