Miles Teller Says the Fantastic Four Will Wear the Classic Costumes in the Upcoming Reboot
After the Fantastic Four trailer debuted online, and with the subsequent images from the film, many people have remarked that the costumes seen in the trailer looking nothing at all like the outfits worn in the comics. Star Michael B. Jordan has previously described these new suits as “containment suits” because they were looking for something different for this “gritty” take on the film. But, fear not True Believers: we spoke to Fantastic Four star Miles Teller and he told us that you can expect to see something more traditional as well.
We caught up with Teller to talk about Insurgent, but just that morning a group of new photos of the Fantastic Four cast in their costumes hit the web and we had to ask him about the new look. He told us that the costume you see above (which he described as “highly uncomfortable” to wear on set) are what you'll see for the majority of the film, but not the only costumes you see.
These are the beta versions of the costumes, which is great [...] But, yeah it would be very odd if the Fantastic Four didn't don the traditional costumes. You've got to. There is some servicing there. You've got to give that to the fans. That's what it's all about.
Over the course of the movie, as the Fantastic Four become more of a official team, you can bet that we'll see the team wearing matching outfits with the classic “4” logo. It might not be something you see until the end of the film, but according to Teller, at least you're not going to have to wait for a sequel.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
We'll have more from Teller on Insurgent and more coming later this week.
Fantastic Four opens in theaters on August 7.
