Yesterday saw an unofficial synopsis released for the Fantastic Four reboot from a casting call website that stated a vastly different origin was in the cards for the FF.
The updated origin read in part that Reed Richards and Ben Grimm would become weapons of the government before meeting Sue and Johnny. It also implied that Richards gained his genius from the event that gives him his powers.
The good news for faithful Fantastic Four followers is that the synopsis is apparently not true as director Josh Trank has taken to his Twitter to shoot the information down.
that synopsis is definitely not the synopsis or anything close to the synopsis. i don’t know who put that out. byyee.
