Josh Trank made the Storm family of mixed ethnicities to represent his view of 21st century families: "I have a mixed family. When I go home for Christmas, you'll see white people and black people; that's normal to me." See more »

When the 20th Century Fox logo fades away, the F in the logo stays for a second longer before it also fades away. This parallels the Fox X-Men films, where the X in the logo stays longer also. See more »
Average retelling with the phenomenal and sensational superheroes taking on Doctor Doom
A decade after the original film ¨Fantastic Four¨ (2005) with Ioan Gruffud , Jessica Alba , Kerry Washington , Julian MacMahon , directed by Tim Story was released, this film was rebooted because Jessica Alba decided not to do another "Fantastic Four" film and Chris Evans had moved on to play another Marvel comic book hero Captain America . Fantastic Four (2015), which starred Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Susan Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm, was a darker recounting of the "Fantastic Four" story and failed at the box office . It deals with four young outsiders join an investigation team at New York to carry out an experimental space voyage . Soon they learn that the research facility has a covenant with NASA to transport astronauts to the other universo . However , they decide to go by themselves , to be the first humans to reach the strange place . Then the youngsters teleport to an alternate world and a dangerous universe ; but things go awry, it alters their physical form in shocking ways. Further, they achieve super-powers, but Victor/Doctor Doom is left behind . Four people are forever changed and the four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. Reed Richards , inventor and leader of the group gains the ability to stretch his body and takes the name Mr. Fantastic . Sue Storm, gains the ability to turn invisible and create force fields becoming The Invisible Girl . Her brother, Johnny Storm, becomes The Human Torch with the ability to control fire, including covering his own body with flame , as Johnny morphing into a ball of flames . And Reed's friend , Ben Grimm , is turned into the super-strong , super-tough Thing . Together they become a team of super-heroes and use their unique powers to foil the evil plans of villains .The incredible quartet taking on the threats to the world with their extraordinary force .Change is coming.When you change the world, prepare to defend it. Beyond darkness... beyond fear... lies the fantastic... However there is an accident and they are all affected by the power in the planet.
The spectacular and bizarre adventures of Marvel comics group's greatest super-heroes team .The movie blends thrills , noisy action , comic book , spectacular feats , overwhelming special effects and it results to be pretty entertaining but mediocre , including a silly and ridiculous plot .This is a free adaptation from famous comic book by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee , taking parts here and there . The screenplay is pure entertainment but far from Marvel canon , containing some absurd and embarrassing scenes . The plot is well known , plain and simple , it begins with an experimental space journey financed by a strange N.Y. Research Institute . But the starship arrives in another world and things get worse , and they find themselves turning into fantastic Super-heroes .The Fantastic Four become into team of Super-heroes and use their supernatural powers to battle the nasty enemy, Doctor Doom .The picture is regularly realized with state-of-art FX , impressive production values and so-so casting formed by agreeable young main actors . And for the first time , The Thing/Jamie Bell was created in computer-generated rather than going through make-up or prosthetics . Amazing array of technical special effects with rousing action set pieces illuminate the full-blown feats carried out by the Fantastic four . The final duel between the protagonists and villain super-hero Doctor Doom is breathtaking and moving . Many comic-book fans disliked the way Doctor Doom was portrayed , but original series author Stan Lee, agreed with them , though here Stan Lee declined to make his usual cameo . It has been reported that 20th Century Fox interfered with the film, to the point in which Josh Trank's original movie layout was changed drastically , as some set pieces don't make sense , that's why one of the most major changes was the cutting out of 3 whole action scenes . Several moments in the movie take their visual cue from Jack Kirby's work in the very first "Fantastic Four" comic book . Although have given bad reviews to this film , I think that is amusing with spectacular scenes during whole the movie . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle , The Kill point series) . It was really panned by critics , that's why after the disappointing reviews, Josh Trank went on to tweet that he'll "never be working on a comic book movie again". Trank finalized his version of the film in 2014, the studio was dissatisfied and didn't like the director's work, demanded re-shoots, which were done in early 2015.
Other films about ¨Fantastic four¨ are the following ones : 1994 ¨Fantastic four¨ by Olley Sassone with Alex Hyde White , Jay Underwood , Rebecca Staab , Michael Smith , and ¨Fantastic Four¨ 2004 by Tim Story , this is the best version dealing with the spaceflight crew who suffer Gamma ray attacks in the Van Allen belt , being formed by team leader scientific named Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffud) , the pilot named Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis) , Sue Storm (Jessica Alba) , his brother Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) and included Victor Doom . As Mr. Fantastastic, leader of the group gains the ability to stretch his body to any shape ; Sue Storm achieves the skill to become invisible girl and projects telekinetic fields ; Johnny Storm as the human torch creates a flying blazing ball and with power to control the fire . It is followed by the sequel titled ¨Rise of the Silver Surfer ¨, with the same players and Doug Jones as Silver Surfer .
