OMG, it gets worse, here's the plot synopsis according to Aint It Cool:

“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.”

Here's the link for the article:

Seriously, Fox should stop right now. And to think people were going nuts over Michael Douglas being cast as Hank Pym.
Pass.

This may just surpass that horrible Benji Grimm "Thing" cartoon ("Thing Ring, do your thing!") as the least faithful FF adaptation ever.

I don't understand the whole "end up being owned by the government and used as weapons" thing. That makes this FF sound like the Ultimates.

With the improvements in the X-Men franchise of late, I was hoping Fox would likewise improve in their efforts regarding the FF, but this is looking dodgy.

I think I'm about to vomit. When I read comics the Fantastic Four was one of the few Marvel titles I read. I just loved those characters but that rumored plot sounds like total shit.

Maybe they can add Herbie the robot as well.

I honestly have no idea what Michael B Jordan is like as an actor
He played a blinder in Season 1 of The Wire, that I do know.
And Fruitvale station as well, that kid has great resume.

A deactivated HERBIE was in the extended cut of the first Fantastic Four.

Electro-Doom doesn't seem so bad now, does he...?

Well, the artist/writer of the Ultimate universe thought it would be cool if Nick Fury looked like Sam Jackson...
I have little love for the Ultimate Universe.

Though in the main universe they introduced the original Nick Fury's biracial, out-of-wedlock, son of him who is bald and black and wears an eyepatch as a reaction to the popularity of the Sam Jackson/Ultimate version...
And that's a new character; and one that makes sense. Fury has been in his prime for about eighty years. There must be a million little Nicks running around by now-- except for the ones he outlived.

They should just go the First Class route and make it a period piece.
Yes, indeed, they really should.

Hey, it's a creative re-imagining, so it must be good. If we don't like it, we're close minded.

I hope his cameo his played by Morgan Freeman.
