We get more from Michael B. Jordan regarding the new costumes in the Fantastic Four reboot.

Speaking with Good Morning America, Jordan offers the Fantastic Four costumes are something like a containment suit and also once again mentions their powers are disabilites.

"It's a new look. We are all in containment suits. ... It's gritty. It's a gritty film. 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." 

"I'm really excited about it, everyone is really happy. We worked hard for three months, put a lot of time into it. The script is very grounded and relatable to everybody, as much as you can. You really get a chance to grow with these characters. It's an origin story. You get to discover these abilities. These disabilities rather and grow with them."

ABC also brings up mention of a Fantastic Four teaser being attached to The Avengers 2, and oddly asked if there was any possibility of a crossover between the two (note: the movies are owned by different companies).

"I have no clue, I have no idea about any of that. From a personal standpoint, it would always be cool to collaborate with other talented actors in that franchise. But I just have no clue whatsoever what Marvel has up their sleeve."

"Fantastic Four" has an August 7, 2015 release directed by Josh Trank starring Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm,  Kate Mara as Sue Storm and Toby Kebbell as Victor von Doom.
