The Johnny Storm featurette also shows a lot of new footage and reveals that Jordan's character is a mechanic. It also shows the character in full suit and also shows him turn into the iconic character.

Kate Mara's featurette showcased Sue Storm in a number of environments including a computer lab, an emotional scene with Johnny Storm and an action sequence in which Johnny Storm and Sue Storm are in combat. Trank also says that Mara and Jordan had great chemistry on set and that Mara was an actress he always wanted to work with.

Meanwhile, Miles Teller's video as Mr. Fantastic shows Teller in a suit and walking into a lab. Trank adds that Teller had originally auditioned for "Chronicle" but did not get the part. However, Trank says that he always had the feeling he would work with him. The producer Simon Kinberg adds that he thinks they picked the best dramatic actors currently working in the industry.
"Fantastic Four" tells the story of four young scientists who achieve superhuman abilities through a teleportation experiment gone haywire. As a result, they must use these abilities to save the world from an uprising tyrant.
