You know that Fox is rebooting FANTASTIC FOUR, correct? Well they are and its going to be a mess. Josh Trank (Chronicle) is directing the film and it honestly couldn’t be farther from any FF book or story ever created. Not that deviating from source material is a bad thing, this is just taking liberties that shouldn’t be taken and as a film-maker myself, it sounds disastrous.
We recently shared some pictures of “Doctor Doom” fighting the Thing and Human Torch in a green screen environment. These were promptly taken down by Fox, given some weight to their legitimacy. Some rumors of Toby Kebbell’s Doom not being actual Doom and instead will be a cyber-activist have recently began making circulations as well. We can only see if anything will turn out to be true.
But the most recent ‘leaks’ of sort for the film include the actual plot of the film and we want to share it with you, whether its true or not. Below you’ll find that FANTASTIC FOUR for 2015 will definitely be a mixed bag, and thats not a witty reference to the interracial family we’ll see take prominence. The biggest note in the release is that The Thing will have the ability to turn back and forth during circumstances which he is under heavy duress (The Hulk, anyone?) But we know he doesn’t normally have this power in most comics, but is a recent addition to Marvel’s Ultimate version of Ben Grimm.
If you have any ideas or feelings on the new FANTASTIC FOUR, you let us know. We sure don’t know what to think.
Reed is a genius convenience store clerk with Ben. Reed’s parents don’t care about him, and Ben’s dad is abusive. They’re good friends and have each other’s backs. Reed writes a paper for community college on teleportation that attracts the attention of Dr. Franklin Storm, CEO of the Baxter Building research center.
Storm has a son, Johnny, and an adoptive daughter, Sue, whose father, Storm’s old partner, died in an experiment gone wrong. Johnny and Sue are party kids, and Sue is particularly disdainful of science. Reed and Sue don’t get along at first.
Victor Doomashev is a anti-social Eastern European computer programmer and hacktivist who calls himself “Doom”. He hates the 1%, particularly Storm, whom he claims corrupts science for profit.
Storm uses Reed’s paper to complete some equations on a machine to access another dimension, the N-Zone. Reed invites Ben to watch the machine being turned on. Sue and Johnny are also there. Doom manages to hack into the Baxter Building’s servers and use a computer virus to damage the machine, which explodes. Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben are exposed to otherwordly energy and become mutants with powers that they can’t control.
Storm takes them to the Baxter Building and creates containment suits for their powers. They begin to train. Reed and Storm also begin developing a way to revert the accident. Sue blames Reed for everything, but they eventually become friends and then a couple. Ben can switch off his powers when he’s not in danger. Johnny changes colors based on heat intensity, and Sue has some borderline telekinetic thing. Reed is pretty much Reed.
Doom finds out that the four have acquired powers and becomes angry it’s not him, so he comes up with a plan to break into the Baxter Building to access the N-Zone through the rebuild machine. As a distraction, he reprograms a bunch of stolen military drones, the “Doombots”, to attack the building. The four come together as a team for the first time and save people.
Doom activates the machine and gets technopathy powers or something, basically energy blasts and making machines obey to him, and a fight ensues. The machine goes critical, and, in order to prevent it from exploding and destroying the city, the four push into it and Storm shuts it off.
There’s a countdown before it reaches critical mass. Inside the N-Zone, the four battle Doom again, and manage to leave him trapped there after he disfigures himself soaking up too much power. The Four manage to escape, but Ben gets the blunt of it to protect Reed and can’t switch back.
The machine is destroyed, Doom is gone, the four have learned to work as a team, and Reed vows to find a cure for Ben. And it ends there.
