The heroes of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four don’t start out so super, but rather as mild-mannered scientists embarking on a voyage to solve some of our world’s greatest mysteries. Thankfully, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku is on hand to explain some of the real-life science at the foundation of the Fantastic Four film. Alternate realities, wormhole travel, invisibility and more are explored in these short featurettes.
The 20th Century Fox film starring Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm, along with Toby Kebbell, Reg E. Cathey and Tim Blake Nelson opens August 7th.
