Four astronauts have their lives changed forever, when they end up being hit by a cloud of cosmic radiation. Reed Richards now has the ability to stretch his body like elastic. Sue Storm (Alba) is now the invisible woman. Johnny Storm becomes the human touch and Ben Grimm becomes the 'Thing', a man made out of rock. But there is one problem. The journey's sponsor, Victor Von Doom has also been affected and with full power, is a dangerous force which needs to be stopped, before it's too late.Written by
(at around 53 mins) Just after Victor throws his doctor into the X-Ray light, we see Reed writing on the board: "[H3O+][NO2-]/[HNO2]". This is the Acid-Dissociation Equilibrium (Ka) expression for nitrous acid (HNO2). See more »
(at around 41 mins) During the first interview scene on the bridge, Johnny hugs Ben and you can see that his shoulder is actually soft foam, not rock. See more »

The Airline version is slightly different. The following difference's include:
Instead of the talk Sue and Reed have on the bridge, they're in a Planetarium instead.
During the final confrontation with Dr. Doom, Thing knocks open a fire hydrant and Mr. Fantastic puts his body in an "S" shape to amplify the water, instead in this version it cuts to Thing using his foot as if he did everything himself.
The scene where Victor opens the energy globe and puts his arm in it to increase power, large bolts of electricity jump out in the theatrical version, in this version, there are no bolts of electricity, indicating the effects were not finished.
The scene where Reed proposes to Sue on the boat, he just stands up normally and delivers his proposal with a different acting take.He doesn't kneel down while still standing as he did in the theatrical version.
Some shots of crashing cars on the bridge were cut.
Some language was cut, mostly reference's to God.
The scene where Victor picks up his phone and says " Leonard, bring Ben Grimm to the Baxter Building " was changed to " Leonard, bring me my Lab Rat ".
The Death of Victors' boss is slightly edited.
The scene where Thing walks into the bar has a different song playing and the glasses don't shake, nor does the record skip in this version.
During the scene where Sue, Reed and Johnny are taking a cab to the Brooklyn Bridge we hear a voice-over of Reed saying " Ben told us to meet him here at the Brooklyn Bridge " after this voice over it cuts to the three of them in the car.
This does not happen in the theatrical version.
During the scene where Johnny puts a shirt on and burns it and tells Reed and Sue he has " a serious problem " we can actually hear him yell off-screen and also hear flames shoot out as well before he informs then of what happened. In the Theatrical Version we just see his burnt shirt and the following line.
Although the film was shot in the Super 35 process, this version Pans and Scans as if it were shot in Anamorphic Widescreen instead of properly framing it for Full Frame as most Super 35 films are.
