Michael B Jordan, a rising star in Hollywood who will play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in Fox's reboot of The Fantastic Four next year, has teased the look of the superhero team's new costumes.

In an interview with ABC News the 27-year-old said: "It's a new look. We are all in containment suits.

"The costume process definitely took some time to get in and out of that thing, especially since I was bulking up. It was a little more snug during filming. We got through it man. It was a process, but we did it. It was hard work."

The phrase "containment suit" conjures up images of massive outfits but Jordan says his was tight, which hints at a more classic look for the heroes. Typically blue and emblazoned with a "4" logo, The Fantastic Four's costumes have changed very little in the comics since their debut in 1961.

How different will their new look be? Word coming from the reboot has certainly made clear that director Josh Trank wants to present a radically different take on the characters from the first film starring Ioan Gruffudd and Jessica Alba.

Quite how different remains to be seen as very little from the film's set has leaked since filming took place earlier this year.

The Fantastic Four will star Jordan alongside Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell. Toby Kebbell will play their arch-nemesis, Doctor Doom. The film will be released on 7 August 2015.
