A new synopsis for the the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot film has been released and offers interesting plot details.
Rotten Tomatoes released the new synopsis, which reads:
“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.”
The most interesting part of this synopsis is that it describes the team being made up by “four young outsiders.” In the original films, the team was made up of successful scientists, which means that the new film is likely to focus less on how the four’s career, and ultimate journey to space, led them to becoming superheroes.
Other than that small alteration, it does sound as if the overall story will be relatively similar, what with the whole “former friend turned enemy” aspect that Fantastic Four is known for.
Marvel’s Fantastic Four will star Kate Mara as Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Jamie Bell as The Thing, and Toby Kebbell as Victor Von Doom. It will be directed by Josh Trank and open in theatres on August 7, 2015.
