The upcoming Fantastic 4 movie, which is a reboot of the series, is set to release Aug. 7 of this year. While the core origin stories for the character remains relatively unchanged, the characters themselves are drastically different from the previous two films. Most notably, the characters appear quite a bit younger than the previous cast, and the Human Torch is being portrayed by an African-American actor (Michael B. Jordan) in this iteration. From the few glimpses weâ€™ve seen from the trailers, the movie seems to be shaping up quite nicely, and weâ€™re never ones to turn down a superhero movie. Fantastic 4 (2005) and Fantastic 4: Rise of The Silver Surfer (2007) saw middling reviews; let’s hope the infusion of youth can freshen up the property. Check out the character portraits below.
