This Is A Much Less Awful Synopsis For The New Fantastic Four Movie

Illustration for article titled This Is A Much Less Awful Synopsis For The New Fantastic Four Movie

Hey, remember a few weeks ago when an amazingly terrible description of the new Fantastic Four reboot's plot spread around the internet? It was quickly debunked, but not before it traumatizing many a fan. Well, here's a new synopsis that is both better and more plausible... but also way more vague.


All three of which goes hand in hand, really. Here's the synopsis, which apparently popped up on the film's Rotten Tomatoes page:

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


Well, even if it's not official, it sounds like it could be. Pretty much all we know for sure about Josh Trank's version of the FF is that the stars are definitely younger, that this reimagining/reboot is "contemporary", and that one of the most prevalent rumors about the film is that it'll feature the FF getting there powers in a trip into another dimension, not a spaceflight, as per the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics. So I'm happy to dub this thing real, if only because it doesn't really matter if it isn't.

Really? I'm not one of those people that complains about how women are drawn in comics, but puhlease, this is ridiculously sexist.
