Kate Mara had initially wanted to read Fantastic Four comic books to prepare for her role as Susan Storm, but the filmmakers explained to the cast that it was unnecessary as the film was an original story not based directly on the comics. See more »
The U.S. Army Special Forces troops who attempt to capture Reed Richards are supposed to be rappelling from a hovering helicopter, which is conveniently off-screen. The effect of being directly below a hovering helicopter is shown as a mild breeze. The downdraft of a helicopter is far more intense. See more »
Ever since I was three, I wanted to play quarterback for the New York Giants... like my personal hero, Eli Manning. Annual salary is between 10 and 20 million dollars a year.

I would like to start by saying no. Just no. Oh my gods No! Josh Trank, I assume your name is short for 'Tranquilizer', yes? I cannot think of a single thing that can save this film. Kate Mara, you are gorgeous and a wonderful actress and I admire your work and, most importantly, I hope this willfully awful thing has not destroyed your career.
So: Script = No. Direction = No. Characters = No (which is odd, because the Fantastic Four are great characters, and yet you have managed to get a 'no' with them. Remarkable!). Miles Teller = No. Josh Trank = No. Even for cereal commercials, no.
Recast the original Fantastic 4 movie and reboot THAT. What you have done is bad. I'm stunned. This was worse than Batman & Superman vs Storytelling, and you can read my review on that travesty on IMDb to learn just how badly you have done!
