Yesterday Marvel Comics released this image which seemed to indicate that Fantastic Four will be returning as a title in November, possibly with issue #600. Today they’ve released a second image featuring cover artwork with the characters The Thing (highlighted), Invisible Woman, Mister Fantastic and Spider-Man. Spidey has been heavily involved in the group in the current FF book so it makes sense that he would just become an official member and there will be four once more. Interestingly, they are all still wearing their Future Foundation uniforms with the stylized three glyphs. Whether or not they return to traditional Fantastic Four costumes remains to be seen.
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at FF #1, from the superstar creative team of writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Steve Epting. The fight for tomorrow begins today! In the wake of the Human Torch’s heroic sacrifice, Marvels’ first family has re-emerged as the Future Foundation. Spider-Man may their newest teammate, but who else has signed up to protect the future from itself? And what does their presence portend for the world at large? Readers new and old alike – you’ve never seen the FF like this before! Prepare to witness the mind-blowing birth of the super-team that will change everything this March, only in FF #1!

Spider-Man’s sold-out ascent through the Big Time is about to get even more colossal as acclaimed writer Dan Slott and red-hot artists Stefano Caselli and Javier Pulido induct the wall-crawler into the newly minted FF only in Amazing Spider-Man #658 and #659 this April! But now that he’s on the team, will he prove be more a liability than an asset to the FF? The Sinister Six are betting on it…and they’ll ensure that the all-new FF’s first steps into the world shake the Marvel Universe for years to come!
“Spidey and the FF are really what Marvel is all about. And with both books firing on all cylinders right now, I couldn’t be happier to see their worlds overlap more” says Marvel Senior Editor, Stephen Wacker. “All of this is building up to some big moments for Spidey as his work with the FF comes at a pretty crucial time in his life. It’s going to be a dramatic summer for Spidey… to say the least.”
The smash hit storyline of the year collides with the epic opening salvo of Marvel’s newest super-team this April only in Amazing Spider-Man #658 and #659! And follow the wall-crawler into the annals of Marvel history when FF #1 arrives this March!
Columbia Pictures just dropped the below image in our inbox, our first look at the new Spider-Man costume from the upcoming reboot. It’s definitely keeping with the basic design with some nice modern flourishes. What do you think?
