The teacher in the beginning scenes is played by actor Dan Castellaneta who has voiced the iconic character of Homer Simpson in the long-running TV show, The Simpsons (1989). Castellaneta's character in this movie is a highly intelligent educator (and later a science fair judge) which is ironic considering much of the humor in The Simpsons revolves around Homer being inept and acting with questionable intelligence.

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.
