So the quicktime versions of the Fantastic Four 2 trailer are out (or Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer if you're feeling more dramatic). I'm pretty sure that at the least it will be better than the first FF movie, but as I read elsewhere, that wouldn't take much.

At first glance it was pretty cool... I always enjoy watching Johnny Storm in flying sequences, and his admiration at the Silver Surfer's ability to go through solid matter was fun. However the ridiculousness of Johnny being able to keep up with and even catch the Silver Surfer seemed a bit silly to me. SS travels through space at what one would assume hyperlight velocities, yet this guy who's made of fire can catch him? Unless the Surfer was just in the mood for a game of cat and mouse, that seemed pretty dumb to me.

Fantastic Four 2 Trailer: Cool If You Don’t Think About It Too Much

At first glance it was pretty cool… I always enjoy watching Johnny Storm in flying sequences, and his admiration at the Silver Surfer’s ability to go through solid matter was fun. However the ridiculousness of Johnny being able to keep up with and even catch the Silver Surfer seemed a bit silly to me.

At least they made up for it by having him take Johnny into space where the flame would go out, and there did seem to be some classic Kirby poses worked into the Silver Surfer flight scenes, which was cool to see.

What concerns me is that we have the same writers and director on this one that we had on the first film, so how can the quality be any better with the same team? Of course I’m sure it will be a fun popcorn flick and any scene containing Jessica Alba will no doubt make any shortcomings of the film irrelevant to the average young male movie viewer. icon smile Fantastic Four 2 Trailer: Cool If You Dont Think About It Too Much

  1. I do think it was a game of cat and mouse, as the Surfer did see Johnny following him, but didn’t opt for the said hyperlight speeds. After getting out of the tunnel, he clearly looked at Johnny and heightened the pace. This to me was a dare for Johnny to follow, and knowing his personality, he would absolutely grab it. Even at the top of the speed we saw in the trailer, I doubt they exceeded a speed of breaking the sound barrier. Johnny didn’t catch him, the surfer did. If the Surfer would have wanted, he would’ve probably vanished in a blink of an eye.

    Anyway, this trailer really pulled up my hopes for the sequel to be the better than the first.

  2. Yeah, I suppose you’re right. Zipping around the universe with it’s vast expanses of nothingness could get pretty boring. How often do you run into a guy who bursts into flame AND flys? It would be entertaining. :-)

  3. Well we have to remember that not everyone in the audience will be able to quote chapter and verse of every marvel comic that had an SS story in it, so the poor movie producers have to make a few compromises for the same folks who are entertained by a WWF Match. If this movie can tell the general story of the FF 48/49/50 trilogy with the originality and awe inspired by the characters with some great effects along the way, I am sure it will be found as entertaining for many.
