And this trailer isn't simply reusing some of his old music. 20th Century Fox scored Glass -- who created celebrated scores for The Thin Blue Line, The Hours, the Qatsi Trilogy and many more films -- to create new music for the blockbuster.
In an interview with Collider, Trank revealed he managed to convince the Oscar-nominated Glass this superhero movie was worth his time due to the "philosophical" nature of his last film, Chronicle.
"I got his manager's number and gave them a call," Trank said. "Philip Glass is one of my heroes. Whenever I'm writing or drawing I always put on Philip Glass. This is my first time making a movie with a score and I thought, 'why not give it a shot?'
"The first words out of his mouth were, 'I just saw your movie [2012's Chronicle] and it's very philosophical.' We were talking about the philosophy of Chronicle and it gave me goosebumps. We invited him out to set [of Fantastic Four] and he came to set for like three days and had a great time. He was blown away by the scale of the film. I've been working with him for almost a year now and he's so inspiring. He's such a humble, amazing guy."
With Glass scoring the project and Cronenberg influencing it, it's a safe bet this will be the most somber movie starring a man who can stretch like rubber to ever come out of Hollywood.
*A low-budget version of The Fantastic Four was finished but left unreleased in 1994 in order that Marvel could keep the rights. The actors had no idea they were in a film that was never intended for release.
