Much like in 2014, the year 2015 is set up to be a very big one for the world of comic book movies. But while Marvel Studios has already been showing their stuff, giving us sneak peeks at both The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, we’ve been left patiently waiting for our first look at Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four. 20th Century Fox delayed showing off the new superhero movie for months, wanting to make sure that everything about it was just right, but now that particular wait is over. The Fantastic Four trailer is online.

Those of you who are long-time Hero Blend viewers know that we’ve been patiently waiting for the reveal of the rebooted Fantastic Four since Episode #27 – a.k.a the one where we were at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 – but this past Tuesday we finally got our chance:
But while it’s nice to finally have an idea of what to expect from this film, reactions to the first footage have been a bit divisive. There are some who love the Interstellar-style of the trailer and the more science-based approach to the comic book characters, but others have complained that the footage was a bit too vague and didn’t really do enough to actually sell the fact that this is a new Fantastic Four movie. Fortunately, this divisiveness makes for some great conversation, as you’ll find above.

Joining me for this week’s episode and a bit of lively debate is Cinema Blend’s own Sean O’Connell, who has some very different opinions about the new Fantastic Four trailer than my own. Hit the play button above and join the conversation.
