According to ComicBookMovie.com on Dec. 23, with auditions for Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" film reboot currently on the way, there are rumors going around that there is more of an in-depth synopsis to his movie. Currently the only person that has officially signed on for one of the characters, Johnny Storm, is Micheal B. Jordan.
The synopsis seemingly entails the typical characters of Ben Grimm and Reed Richards who obtain special abilities after they've both been through an event. Richards has the ability to stretch parts of his body to distances most humans would not ever be able to accomplish while Grimm takes on the appearance of a orange, rock-like beast with super strength. They are both acquired by the government to serve the purpose of super human weapons.
Later on, as both Grimm and Richards mature, two other characters come to meet their acquaintance, Sue Storm and Johnny Storm.
It appears that the first two characters, The Thing and Mister Fantastic, start off in their youth as weapons and not even super heroes. They acquire their powers around the age of 16.
It is later noted, to take such a synopsis with a grain of salt until official news become available.
"Fantastic Four" is scheduled to start its filming in March of 2014.
