20th Century Fox have today posted a synopsis for their reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise. The Synopsis was posted on acting agency website Acting Auditions. The synopsis certainly has fans annoyed.
THE FANTASTIC FOUR will tell the story of two very young friends, Reed Richards and Ben Grimm. After an event transforms the boys, they find themselves empowered with bizarre new abilities. Reed becomes a scientific genius who can stretch, twist and re-shape his body to inhuman proportions. Ben becomes a monstrous, craggy humanoid with orange, rock-like skin and super strength. However, the two end up being owned by the government and used as weapons. But after they mature, two others with powers come into the picture – Sue Storm “The Invisible Girl” and Johnny Storm “The Human Torch.
Only The Human Torch has been cast and is set to be played by Micheal B Jordan. If this synopsis is correct then the Fantastic Four might be in need of a third reboot in five years time.
