The Fantastic Four Official Synopsis Revealed
The Rotten Tomatoes page for 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot has revealed the first official synopsis. An extended and unofficial synopsis released earlier this month revealed that the title characters access another dimension, a plot point which has been confirmed by this synopsis. Take a look at this plot rundown below, then read on for more information.
"The Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. (C) Fox"
The "former friend turned enemy" is most likely Toby Kebbell's Doctor Doom, who we reported last week will be named Victor Doomashev, instead of the character's original comic book name Victor Von Doom. The character is described as an anti-social computer programmer and "hacktivist" who hates Dr. Franklin Storm (Reg E. Cathey), the father to both Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Sue Storm (Kate Mara). Miles Teller and Jamie Bell round out the title characters as Reed Richards and Ben Grimm.
It remains to be seen when we'll see the first footage and/or photos from this reboot, with producer Simon Kinberg revealing last month that the filmmakers want to make sure that the "voice of the movie" is just right before giving fans their first look. What do you think about this official synopsis? Chime in with your thoughts below, and stay tuned for more on The Fantastic Four, which hits theaters August 7, 2015.
