Dr. Doom Finally Shows His Face in the New Fantastic Four Trailer

The Doctor looking pretty villainous.

It’s been overshadowed by all the Avengers hoopla, but Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot looks like a deeply personal superhero film, one that seems to eschew mythologizing for a more grounded narrative about four friends who just happen to be endowed with ridiculous, world-saving powers. (If that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s pretty much the same premise as Trank’s last film, Chronicle.) But though we’ve gotten a good look at Fantastic Four’s heroes, we’ve seen very little of its antagonist, Dr. Doom. The movie’s latest trailer, which leaked Sunday, gives us a long-overdue peek at the villain.

It’s a short glimpse, but a suitably epic one, and the rest of the trailer confirms that this cast—Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell—will bring lots of whip-smart banter and emotional depth to Marvel’s oldest superhero team.
