In a quickly deleted tweet from 6 August, 2015, Josh Trank said "A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would've received great reviews. You'll probably never see it. That's reality though." After seeing this version, the studio mandated heavy re-shoots. The newer scenes are easy to spot as Kate Mara had cut her hair and wore a blonde wig. Miles Teller also had facial hair that would appear and disappear between shots. See more »
Reed shows Sue "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", commenting that Nemo invents a submarine that goes deeper than anything in history. This suggests that Reed doesn't know that the 20,000 leagues refers to the distance traveled while under the sea, not the depth. The rest of the movie suggests he's smarter than that. See more »

This movie was awful. As a comic book fan I felt like Josh Trank just slapped me in the face by using so very little of the actual comics. He basically used the name of a comic I love to get me to see it and then gave me a different movie. The casting was awful (none of the characters matched their comic counter part. They were all too young so of course Reed Richards didn't have gray streaks, who thought it would be a good idea to make a tiny guy the Thing?, and was it really necessary to make the Storm family have a "modern home"? That's more of a story that would fit in the X-Men), the origins dragged on for too long, and their origin wasn't even the same! The Fantastic 4 is supposed to be all about space travel not going to other dimensions. That's Dr. Strange's territory. I walked out of this garbage and got my money back.
