In post-production the character of Harvey Elder, also known as Mole Man in the comics, was renamed Harvey Allen, since the filmmakers felt he had nothing to do with his version from the comics. The film's portrayal of Allen is based on the Marvel "Ultimate" version of Harvey Elder (a scientist and contemporary of Dr Franklin Storm) and Marvel "Ultimate" Willie Lumpkin (a government agent who handles the team).

No explanation why the flagpole had such an immediate and dramatic effect, but neither the piton nor the repeated arrival & departure of the shuttle seemed to disturb the ground at all. 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.

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 »
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!
